Publisher's Summary

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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Prodigy to be better than the print version?

Hard to say.


What did you like best about this story?

It's so emotional. Legend was a great book but Prodigy was just incredible. So moving and breath taking.


What does Steven Kaplan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He makes you love Day even more.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was very hard not to. The story line was addicting, always twisting and turning and just amazing.


Any additional comments?

I am not sure why audible released before Amazon but I am so glad they did. This book was amazing. It broke my heart worse than almost any other book ever has.

Loved it right up until the end

This book had me...right up until the end. I was on the verge of giving it 4, bordering on 4.5 stars and then it took a turn that left me groaning with annoyance.

The book was very good up until that point. In my opinion, better than the first. There was more detail, more action, more intrigue. The book starts out with Day and June fresh from their escape and on their way to Vegas, where they hope to find help in the Patriot rebels. From there, they are thrown into a plot to assassinate the new elector. They are split apart, reunited, exposed to harsh truths about both sides and forced to pick their path knowing that nothing will be as they hoped/expected. I kept expecting them to get split apart - divided by two causes and too many lies. But always Lu brought them back together with logic and sound reason that made sense considering these two characters who she has built with solid heads on their shoulders, even despite their ages. It was really good. But then, at the very last minute, she devolved into the silly YA nonsense that makes me want to stop reading YA entirely. Building false drama by making her characters become suddenly dumb when in the rest of the book, they were mature beyond their years and saw past all the lies and BS. It kind of ruined it for me.

I'll land on 3.5 stars for this one and I'm curious if I'll still be interested in book #3 when it comes out in 2014 (wtf!) If it was out already, I would read it. But I wonder if in a year (or more) from now, I will remember any of the good. Or if all I will remember is the bad taste that the ending of this one left in my mouth and decide to skip it
