Wow, wow, wow! What a thrilling second book in the Legend Series. Prodigy by Marie Lu, follows the adventures again with Day and June on the run and this time we are set on a journey that takes the duo to the heart of the rebellion to join forces with the Patriots who seem to be the only ones equipped to help Day and June, but for a price. The Patriots will take in Day and June but ask in return for them to help assassinate the new Elector, Anden.
Lu does an amazing job setting the stage and really building up the environment around the story. She also provides alternating views of Day and June that shows the reader of this dual understanding of the two sides of the story. The characters throughout are all unique in their own and have a story to tell - beautifully developed and totally believable in their actions. Of course there are twists and turns that will keep you guessing throughout the book and in the last third of the book, she sets off in a racing pace that will not let you put the book down until the end. Her fast paced writing style and plot really keep the reader engaged from the first page to the last and leaves you wanting more. I for one cannot wait for the final book in the series, Champion that comes out this fall!
