Review: Prodigy

Legend #2
Marie Lu

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?

Rating: 4.5/5

“He is beauty, inside and out.
He is the silver lining in a world of darkness.
He is my light.”

“You know, sometimes I wonder what things would be like if I just ... met you one day. Like normal people do. If I just walked by you on some street one sunny morning and thought you were cute, stopped, shook your hand, and said, "Hi, I'm Daniel.”

“Love is illogical, love had consequences--I did this to myself, and I should be able to take it.”

My Thoughts:
Initial Response
WHY!?! WHY MARIE LU? WHY MUST YOU DO THIS?!? No seriously that cliffhanger is just mean. I just can't. T.T

After a few deep breaths:
I picked up this book for the first time a couple months ago but i only got 100 pages in. I don't know what it was I just couldn't get into it. I picked it up again yesterday just on a whim and man am I glad. I read this book every second I could, and I might not have paid much attention in school today but it was worth it. Kind of... Anyways, I really liked what I read. 

I can't say too much since this is a squeal and I wouldn't want to spoil anything. But I will say this: The story is so well written, with just the right amount of twists and turns. June and Day are awesome as always and their personal stories are just heartbreaking. I must say they are some of my favorite characters in I have read. But that ending. My gosh I teared up a bit. Why? Why must you be so mean Ms Lu? In all, When I picked this book up again I just couldn't put it down. It was amazing and I would be giving it a full on 5 if I hadn't of put it down for 3 months..oops. :)


  1. Good on you for finally getting through Prodigy, and you don't have long to wait for Champion now! That cliffhanger was pretty brutal, I just can't wait until it comes out so we can see what happens.
