4.5 starsI found myself skimming…not because I wanted to get the book over with, but because I could not turn the pages fast enough in anticipation of what was going to happen next! This book was that good! Prodigy in my opinion is leaps and bounds better than its predecessor, Legend. Legend felt a bit like light entertainment, but Prodigy delivered a much meatier story. It sends you fully emersed into the world of the Republic, the Patriots (a rebel group), and the Colonies. The author really pushes the boundaries of June, Day, Anden and Tess, by putting them in situations that force them to react in such ways that truly show their characters. And after that ending… oh that ending… oh how can you do this to us Ms. Lu? The last book can't come fast enough.
