      The realistic, thrilling story of two star-crossed lovers living amidst war. After reading the masterpiece that was Legend, I was afraid to get my hopes up for its sequel—but I worried for nothing. Prodigy is just as, if not better, than its predecessor, injected with just the right balance of action, romance, and most importantly, emotion. This time, the novel follows June and Day while they are on the run from the Republic government. It's with desperation and exhaustion that they finally decide to become part of the Patriots, a group working to assassinate the new Elector—Anden—in order to replace him with Razor, the Patriot leader. The plan is for June to pretend to betray the Patriots and go back to the Elector Anden, who expressed infatuation with her when they met in the first book; while she distracts him with a fake plan, the real assassination will take place in a few days. Day, on the other hand, is placed as a Runner who roams the streets. Yet nothing comes freely. However much June and Day have sacrificed for each other, uncertainties threaten to break their relationship, ranging from June and Anden's blossoming relationship to the fact that June indirectly caused the murder of Day's mother. The mounting suspense and danger in this novel are unbearable and chilling in the best possible way! An absolute must-read for any fan of dystopian, romance, or action.

        Prodigy was a wonderful book overall to read! It represented a turning point in our main protagonists Day and June, along with several other characters. The book was very well-developed and left me excited for reading Champion. I found myself staying up very late every night and reading at school with this book! I'd just like to point out to people who have just finished Legend, that Prodigy is a bit of a different experience than Legend was. Legend was much more of an introductory book, the characters beginning to blossom, but Prodigy is digging deeper into the characters and their emotions and fears. I have not yet read Champion, but I am looking forward to it!
