A great follow-up to Legend. Marie Lu continues Day and June's story after they escape Los Angeles and join up with the Patriots who hope to bring the Republic of America down. Day and June reluctantly agree to a plan to assassinate the new Elector Primo, but as the plan approaches fruition, the two each learn new things about the Republic they hope to change. Fun reading for fans of YA dystopias! ( )

Prodigy is a book about a boy and a girl. They boy's name is day and the girl's name is June. The book starts with them joining a rebel group called the patriots. There they are ordered to kill the Elector (aka president).
They find out that the rebel group is bad and the realize the Elector needs to be saved. The both of them sabatoge the patriots plan and get the Elector away safely. They fled out into another country none as the colonies. They stay there safely until they find out the Elector needs help. So the go back to find that the whole Republic is rioting against the Elector. They join the Elector and restore the Republic with him.

Prodigy was a very good book packed with action, adventure, and mystery. I would give it five stars because it had many details and it was impossible for me to put the book down. I liked it because it was post apocalyptic. I like post apocalyptic books because they all have different reasons for their new world. I am also very excited for the next and last book of the series. I like how they use both of the Characters point of views to tell the story. I also like how June and Day have to work together to solve somthing. ( )

-Spoiler Alert!-

Prodigy, the second action-packed adventure novel of the trilogy by Marie Lu is (like the first one) told from two viewpoints - June, the Republic of America's most prized prodigy, and Day, the Republic's most wanted criminal who is also the people's hero. The story begins where the first novel left off with the pair escaping the Republic's grasp and heading towards Las Vegas when something unpredictable happens - the Elector Primo (who is the leader of the republic) dies and his son, Anden, becomes the new Elector. The Republic empire becomes too unstable, so the two main characters join the Patriots. The Patriots are a band of anti-Republic soldiers, who, in exchange for June and Day's help, would assist Day to get his younger brother, Eden, back, and help the to escape to the Colonies. June and Day swear to help the Patriots. They tell them that they need help assassinating the new Elector. They agree and June is set off to trick Anden into accepting a decoy plan. However, as June gets to know Anden, she realizes that h is NOT his evil father. In fact, Anden might be a new beginning! She tries to tell Day to quit this plan, but Day only realizes that Anden is a good leader halfway throughout the assassination attempt. Day tries to help the Elector escape, but June and day have no time. The Patriots chase after them, but luckily they are too slow. The pair escape into the Colonies, which they think is a place of refuge and freedom, but they find out that it is exactly like the Republic. They decide to return to the Republic and Day tells the people that the newElector is good and his advisors are the ones who are greedy and selfish. The people agree. After that, Day is taken to the hospital to mend some of his injuries. During the doctors' tests, they discover that Day's brain is dying. While Anden encourages June to be the Princeps, the view-Elector, June does't want to because this position would prohibit June from spending time with Day. However, Day convinces her to take the job because he secretly knows he's dying and it would be best for everyone.

This breathtaking book was full of surprises. Surprisingly, it was a fast paced sequel. Most sequels I've read have been slow. Prodigy is a roller coaster of love, hate, thrill, and conflict. This book kept me hooked the entire time. Marie Lu is an amazing author. I can't wait for the third and final book of the trilogy, Champion! ( )
