This is a book about Day and June -- the characters that I connected with on such an emotional level in Legend. So, of course I loved this book. Not to mention that there's lots of action and danger and fighting and surviving that also kept me going.
We get to leave Los Angeles and travel to other cities in the Republic. There are some new characters to love (and hate) and Day and June are never safe. They are always trying to figure out who they can trust...and all the way to the end, we still aren't sure. That's another reason I love these books. The characters really have to fend for themselves, and each other. They really watch out for each other, because they really don't have anyone else to trust.
There's a romance that continues to bloom between our two main characters, but they both are conflicted at times with other interests involving the opposite sex. I wouldn't really call it a love triangle, though.
For a second book, there's lots of plot. Prodigy isn't a "filler." We learn a lot about the Empire, the Colonies, the Patriots, and much about the origin of the conflict is revealed. At the end, we hope that Day and June are in a position to better the lives of the people, but there's also a shocking revelation.
I, of course, can't wait until the next book in the Legend Series. I must find out what happens! Anyone who enjoyed Legend will love this one, and the sooner the better. If you haven't begun the series yet, I highly recommend it. Some would say there are some formulaic elements, but the characters are what grabbed me in Prodigy, as they did in Legend.
