Book Review: Prodigy by Marie Lu

Book: Prodigy by Marie Lu
Genre: YA Dystopian
For: Fun
From: the library

I may have mentioned before that it's crazy I've waited so long to read this series. I guess it's good though because they are all out now! So I don't have to wait long in between them!

So this one takes off where the first one, Legend, left us. Day and June are running for their lives and they end up in the Patriot's camp and some how they are suddenly telling them that they'll help them assassinate the new president of the Republic (who is by the way, a young guy who just happens to have eyes for June.) June is the one lucky enough to be going inside to get him where they need him to be. And Day, of course, is the one lucky enough to be the the shooter.

But, once the plan gets going, they found out things that just don't seem right. And the whole idea of everything is turned on its head. Ah, the roller coaster ride this is! And whose side are we on? I don't know! And will June be safe and will Day be safe? Maybe, maybe not!

And Day. I just love this character. Even if he has blond hair! :) I don't know. He's just so... cool. And vulnerable. And smart. And... cool. Maybe I'll write a Character Connection on him and find some more and better words to describe him!

Anyway, the book. It's awesome. It's exciting and crazy and fun and even a little bit scary. I love this series.

Bottom line: Awesome!

  2. I"m reading this one right now! I'm not very far into it but I like it already :)

  3. I'm late to the party on this series too! I just read the first book last month, need to start this one soon. I loved the first, glad to hear that the second is also great. I'm always a little worried about starting book two in a series.

  8. I love this series too. Two of my favorite characters. I recently read the third on. So sorry it's over!

  9. In the past decade, Mexico's energy sector has suffered from deteriorating operational, financial, and technological capabilities, sharply lowering production for a vital source of state revenue. Production has fallen from a record 3.4 million barrels per day in 2004 to about 2.5 million today. Faced with rising pensions and health-care bills, the government's high dependency on oil revenues (around 30 percent of total revenues) is becoming increasingly worrisome. research by : prodigy oil and gas company-usa
