I couldn't wait to read this book. I really liked Legend the first book in the series. It's really fast paced and I love that in a quick read and this book was similar. Here is the goodreads description:
We actually don't only see the Republic this time where Day and June are from but actually get a glimpse of the Colonies. Day realizes that the Colonies aren't this utopia he things they are. Which adds a good twist to the story to me. There was almost a love triangle but not quite... this I am soooo glad about. Lu got close, but didn't let it happen and I was so excited about that.
The book has great mystery to it too. Sometimes I think in dystopians you know who the bad guys are and the good guys. Prodigy makes you wonder and gives you enough clues to guess. There is this one part in the book where some of the characters are riding around in a jet. A JET. Of course they are zooming around and flipping the jet in the air. I am an air force brat so this was all crazy to me and unrealistic. The characters would've been puking and passing out. It was really hard for me to take that part series. It was way too much and over the top.
I did have a problem with the end of the book. Beware BIG SPOILERS: Day discovers that he is dying. So he avoids telling June about it because she is offered a big government job that will keep her away from him for about 10 years. So he dumps her and tells her to take the job, that he can't be with her. He then doesn't tell her he is dying. So we have that drama. END SPOILER
Overall I think this is a good and fun read. I like Marie Lu's writing. I can't wait for the third book. Lucky for me it comes out this November, so for once I don't have to wait and entire year for the last book!!
Here is my review on the first book: Legend by Marie Lu
