Surprisingly good for the second book of a YA trilogy. Definitely not a filler like most book #2 of YA trilogy and it actually had good character and plot development. ( )

3.5/5 Stars

Well, I finally finished after some struggle of trying to get through it.

I just had to know what happened! The ending, I kind of saw coming...(maybe because of all the drama during the book..but also, I kind of skipped a tiny bit..lol) Except for the why it came about the way it did.

It wasn't horrible book, but it did give me second/sequel book blues...I think most trilogies and series do that. Most of the ones I have ever read had that one book that was just like meh...But you push through because you enjoy the series as a whole, you love the characters and/or you want to know what's going to happen. Well, for me, all of that fits to a degree...Although I do like the characters a lot..I don't love them.

More than likely, I will be going on to Champion eventually...Maybe soon..But we will have to see. I want to know what happens with this story based on how Prodigy ended. I will go into it with hopes Champion ends the way I expect it to..Maybe even hope it does. ( )

This is the second book in the Legend series. I quite liked the first book, but not so much this one. There seems to be a prevailing theme in these young adult, dystopian series. Boy and girl from different social cohorts meet and fall in love, but are torn between where they belong/who they belong with and what their heart feels. I am also getting very tired of love triangles too. This book is OK, but nothing unique or spectacular. ( )

It's been a long time since I read Legend, but I remember being blown away by it, then all my attempts to get into Prodigy failed and I thought I was suffering from a reading slump. It turns out Prodigy just wasn't all that good. Day and June were boring characters. Tess was sweet but unexceptional. In fact, the only character I found particularly interesting was Kaede and she died. There were moments where the characters seemed stilted, and moments where what they were doing just didn't make any sense (Day is practically dying from pain in his infected leg, then June sits in his good leg and they start making out.) Day and June's relationship doesn't feel real, and the scenario of the plot is similar to all the other YA dystopic society book. It did get interesting in the last one and a half hours of a ten hour audiobook. Because the small snippet of interesting plot I will probably give Champion a try. ( )

Great sequel to a great series. I still won't say it is Hunger Games good but it is definitely worth the read. ( )
