Description

Prodigy by Marie Lu is the long-awaited sequel to Legend, THE must-read dystopian thriller novel.

Perfect for all YA fans of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Divergent by Veronica Roth. A brilliant re-imagining of Les Miserables, the series is set to be a global film sensation as CBS films have acquired rights to the trilogy. The Twilight Saga producers, Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey, will produce.

Injured and on the run, it has been seven days since June and Day barely escaped Los Angeles and the Republic with their lives. Day is believed dead having lost his own brother to an execution squad who thought they were assassinating him. June is now the Republic's most wanted traitor.

Desperate for help, they turn to the Patriots - a vigilante rebel group sworn to bring down the Republic. But can they trust them or have they unwittingly become pawns in the most terrifying of political games?

Dystopian fiction at its very best in this thrilling instalment in the Legend trilogy.

The first thing i noticed about this book is the cover. I love the cover sooo much! And since i'm in love with Legend, I thought that this one must be an excellent read. And it was. At first, it may seems boring and slow paced but then, its all there. The actions, the relationship between Day and June, the mystery of the Republic. Its all so captivating! I love Marie Lu's writing style. I love how her describe the characters. And finally, at the end of the book, it breaks m heart. To pieces. And i was moping around in my room 30 minutes after i finished that book. Good Job, Marie Lu. Good Job on breaking my heart.show more

Favourite Quote: "Love is illogical, love has consequences." I loved Legend so much that I couldn't wait to read Prodigy, I had such high hopes! However I was let down, and I only give Prodigy 3/5 stars. The main problem I had with this book was the characters. I wasn't a huge fan of June in the first novel but she was okay, in this book she is just spoilt, stubborn, selfish, jealous and immature and has no idea what the hell she's doing, I really don't like her anymore. As for Day I loved him in the first book and I still did until halfway through Prodigy and then I only liked him, he become obsessessed with June and the whole insta-love thing is just so annoying, I feel like Day characters only revolves around June. As for romance between the pair, urgh I just hate it. HATE IT. The are just not right for each other in any way, I see no attraction or chemistry. There were times in this book were I thought Marie Lu was finally ending the pairing but no it's still going on. I still much prefer Day & Tess together!!!!! As for the plot, I found it quite boring until the last quarter, then it became interesting with a few twists and turns. The was definitely a cliff hanger involving Day's character but I feel like that will all be resolved in the final book. Overall Prodigy was disappointing but still a good read, and I will be continuing with the series.show more
