Rating: Owl

I have been waiting for a year to read this book and then what do I do? I forgot to pre-order it and then even worse I forgot to buy it the day it came out. I didn't even remember it was coming out until 11:00 on January 29th and by that time I knew I couldn't buy it because I knew that I would never be able to put it down. And I was right, the next day I got home from school and read the whole book in one sitting. And let me tell you this, THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING!! So here are my thoughts...
THE PREMISE
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?

(Summary from Goodreads)
THE PROS
1. The characters got even better. Every character developed and you get to see a whole different side to them.
2. The plot. Legend was amazing and held me to the end, but Prodigy had so much more. Prodigy had a great concept. June is on the inside of the Republic and she is there for one reason and that's to kill the Elector. Day is dealing with his own problems with being known as the Republican lover in the Patriot base. And both have some pretty awesome adventures.
3. A lot of times the second book is like a filler book, BUT PRODIGY IS NOT. So much happens in this book and it is amazing.
4. The ending. WOW, just WOW. I can't even talk about it. I cried, which is so unlike me.
THE CONS
1. The ending. Way to leave me hanging!! That ending although spectacular and unexpected made me think, I HAVE TO WAIT A YEAR TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS?!
OVERALL
I love this series so much!!I can't believe that now I have to wait a whole year for the next one. Prodigy is definitely worth my time and money and if you haven't read Legend yet, then WHAT ARE YOU DOING. This series is EPIC!!
WOULD I BUY THIS BOOK: YES
WOULD I READ THIS BOOK: TRY AND STOP ME
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK: YEP!!!
WILL I READ THE NEXT BOOK: YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!
WILL I READ OTHER BOOKS BY THIS AUTHOR: YEAH :)
AM I HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH THIS BOOK: YES, I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!
