Prodigy Review

384 pages

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?

It was pretty easy to get back into this story despite the long period between book releases. Once again the story is told from both June and Day's point of view which gives an interesting perspective on their individual lives. June is still amazingly strong and smart although when it comes to matters of the heart she isn't as strong. Day is a great guy when he's not complaining about those that have more than he has. June and Day both come from completely different worlds so its hard for them to understand the other's perspective at times. We get to meet new characters in this novel and see the return of old ones with new attitudes. June and Day both have to learn that not everyone and everything is exactly the way they've perceived it to be. There is a lot of action and harrowing moments that make this book an exciting and fun read. This novel ends in a straight cliffhanger which I can't wait to see continued in the next novel. I definitely recommend reading this novel if you like dystopian fiction but I recommend you read Legend first.
