So as some of you may know, Prodigy is coming out soon! This book is due to hit book stores January 29, 2013 for the U.S. I am so excited! If you want to see what I thought of the first book, see my review at my other blog here. I actually read this in June of last year, and adored it. But that's not what this post is about! After waiting, we finally get to see further into the world of June and Day. For those who haven't read Legend, this will probably contain spoilers.
"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." (Goodreads)
Well, what am I excited to see?
There's nothing is particular I wanted to mention, but I wanted to generally go over some things. First of all, I am very excited to go see the Patriots! I think this will be very interesting and we can be able to see a whole other perspective on the Republic. Speaking of the Republic, I'm very intrigued to see where Marie Lu decides to take that. Day and June are both wanted now, so I'm curious to see how they're going to make it through. I also feel as though we're going to find a lot more about the history of the Republic as well as the Colonies. And I hope we'll get to go over there, but my odds are against it considering their job is to get the new Elector Primo, and I don't think we'll find him over in the Colonies. I actually read the first chapter which you can read here. (Just scroll down and click "Read and Excerpt" or just scroll down farther. We also can't forget about Day/June! Possible spoiler for Prodigy: I heard rumors that there was a love triangle (which I'm pretty lenient about but NO, NOT FOR THIS BOOK. So I tweeted Marie Lu saying "I heard... things about Prodigy by Marie Lu about Day... and June... not.. together? ..." and she said this back: "Oh dear, are rumors are spreading already? ;) My lips are zipped!" What does that winky face mean?!!!??! But anyways, sorry for a super not great post, school has been crazy! I still hope you enjoyed! -Kait
