Goodreads Summary: June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.
It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.
But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengeance, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?
In this highly-anticipated sequel, Lu delivers a breathtaking thriller with high stakes and cinematic action.
Cindy's Review: Yeah! I finally got my hands on this book!! I waited forever for this one to come out. Since this one is one of the first 2013's most anticipated waits, I can't believe it came so fast! ;) <333
To me, the cover looks like it's worn out and got dirty and everything. If you look closely at the hardcover cover, you'll notice. Good thing is that my friend can't ever say I ruined her cover since she got her book like that. Omg. LOL.
So Prodigy has just the same characters as Legend. Well, basically. There's just two extra main characters. And it's the same June and Day POV's back and forth. Instead of gold, Day's POV is a beautiful shade of blue this time. ;) I just love Day and June's names. It's so pretty.
An extra main character is Anden, the ex-Elector Primo's son, who takes the Elector Primo seat. Day starts off hating him but when he and June discovers how Anden's personality really is and all the puzzles pieces start to piece together, everything just changes. So Anden is part of the love square. He likes June. And I dunno if June likes him back. We all know June likes Day, but you can like two people at once. But June isn't pushing Anden away so that means that June does have a little feelings for Anden! Nooo! Although Anden's role does kinda seem like Prince Maxon in The Selection by Kiera Cass, still noo!!!
Tessa appeared a lot in the beginning of Legend. And she comes back again. This time more grown up, and there's also that new love for Day. Like no! Day is taken!!!!! UGH. This whole romance thing though.
The other new character is I forgot his name. Really. And I don't have the book. And I'm too lazy to look online. So ugh. Forget this.
Well. Prodigy ended. Now we have to wait for the third book and so far no new info yet. I'll keep you guys updated. Betcha!
