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.

Holy crap! Prodigy definitely doesn't suffer from second book syndrome you hear so much about. Prodigy starts off right were Legend ended and it was almost 400 pages of non stop action and awesomeness.

What makes these books are the characters. Day and June are just fantastic, especially Day. We learn so much about the lives of these guys, while also going deeper into the Patriots organization.

The Patriots leader will help Day and June if they accept to a few terms and conditions. June must go back to the Republic and get herself a meeting with the new Elector Primo, while Day has to agree to murdering him. Both accept, but there is definitely some fine prints that the two of them are learning about the hard way.

I seriously could not turn these pages fast enough, while at the same time I took in every single word, every single page, because I just could not get enough. The ending was absolutely insane, and I have no clue where this story will go next, but I can't wait to find out!


  1. I'm the odd person out on this one. I couldn't seem to get into it, and I eventually gave up and set it aside. My sister told me I was crazy--she loved it. I guess it just wasn't for me.

  2. The ending of this one KILLED ME!!!
