“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?-Goodreads


Sadly this second novel, in the Legend trilogy, look me over a week to finish. I’m not sure if it was just a waning interest in the novel or if the Korean dramas I was watching were just so much more interesting.

I appreciate that Prodigy picks up right after Legend so that we know everything that is currently going on. Another aspect of Prodigy I liked is that they revealed a lot more about the history of how the republic and colonies formed. On the other hand, there is so much mistrust and jealousy going on, that I was losing interest from that.

Overall the story and characters were relatively interesting, but I do hope that the trilogy ends stronger. .
