Anyway, Prodigy picks up where Legend left off. June helped her former arch nemesis flee the wrath of the Republic, and they are now wanted fugitives. Together they aim to leave the Republic, and join the illustrious Colonies in their plight against repression. However, they find themselves indebted to a Patriot leader, Razor, who has won the trust of Kaede and Tess (Day's sidekick). So, they agree to assist him in his assassination attempt on the Republic's Elector (dictator). But alas, things are not always what they seem and June and Day have to figure out yet again who they can trust and who they can't.
During the whole plot, June is torn between the Elector and Day; Day is torn between the June and Tess. It seems that neither one of them can reconcile where their loyalties really lie. Towards the end, it seems almost certain that June and Day have chosen each other, but then a mysterious twist pops up. I won't give it away, but I will tell you that it shocked me and I wanted to cry during the last few pages.
After Legend, I just felt like I had to read Prodigy; now, I truly cannot wait to read the third book, Champion!
