Summary: “Injured and on the run, it has been seven days since June and Day barely escaped Los Angeles and the Republic with their lives. Day is believed dead having lost his own brother to an execution squad who thought they were assassinating him. June is now the Republic’s most wanted traitor. Desperate for help, they turn to the Patriots – a vigilante rebel group sworn to bring down the Republic. But can they trust them or have they unwittingly become pawns in the most terrifying of political games?” (Summary found on Goodreads).
Prodigy by Marie Lu is the second installment in the Legend series. I loved this book. There was more suspense and more excitement then there was in the first book. With that came a bit more violence and one upsetting death. To add on to that there was also a very suspenseful ending that left me quite distressed (thankfully I had the next book at home). The romance in the book was brought a few steps higher, both characters having a possible other love interest. The characters are strong and likable. For once I have no complaints about the author. I could not put this book down and there were no parts that I did not like (except for the unhappy ending). I highly recommend this book to any dystopian future fan.
