Prodigy by Marie Lu



June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengence, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?


The country is on the verge of a revolution. June and Day are once again allies, after she helps him escape from execution. The sad thing is that John, Day’s older brother, was the sacrificial lamb.
It’s kinda daunting to see Day so weak, when he supposedly the face of revolution, whom every citizen looks up to. But because of this weakness I am reminded once again that he is merely a boy.
They join the Patriots and plan to take down Anden, the new Elector Primo. What do we really know about the Elector? He’s young, and good looking, but is he like the former Elector Primo?
I smell a love triangle brewing.

If they fulfill their plan in killing Anden, it’ll be a first for both of them to take a life. It’s no big deal right? They are in the middle of a war. June, as soldier should be prepared for that and Day as a rebel, can make a choice. Dang, I didn’t realize how cold I was to kill a character just like that without even finding out about their character. I am truly ashamed.

I, too, was fooled by the Patriots!
