    One thought on “Prodigy”

    1. Huge thanks to Julianna Helms for loaning me her ARC. Everybody go and give Julianna a cyber hug right now. GO.So today I was standing around in the kitchen in my underwear frosting cupcakes, and as I stared vacantly out of the window over the sink, I wondered, "What if I looked up and there was a zombie standing out there?"I frequently wonder this. Call me crazy, but when I finally peel myself away from my manuscript at about 3:30 in the morning and I let the dog out one last time, I bristle an [...]

    2. ____________________________________________“Love is illogical, love had consequences--I did this to myself, and I should be able to take it.”____________________________________________☆☆☆☆☆5 WHOLY STARS!☆☆☆☆☆Marie Lu never disappoints.I had really high expectations for this sequel and they were all met.This may not be my best review,because I am still under the obsession of "Outlander",so I might miss some parts or mess something.I am ready for the finale "Champion"!Pro [...]

    3. Actual rating: 4.5 stars Well, well, well. Here I am yet again eating my words. A year ago, when I read Legend, I complained about the world building. Mind you, I did think it was a fast-paced, exciting read, but it felt incomplete as a dystopian novel because I couldn't fully visualize how the society fit into the world as a whole. By the end, I was left with so many questions about how everything functioned. I felt like Marie Lu was purposefully keeping secrets from me just to string me along [...]

    4. ^My thoughts on having to wait a whole year for the next book. I've been so pleasantly surprised by my long-awaited January sequels, first Through the Ever Night, then Everbound and now Prodigy has come in and turned a series I was on the fence about into one where I anxiously obsess over what will happen in the next installment. Marie Lu really focuses on developing her characters here, whilst still exploring the politics of her dystopian society and introducing one really evil twist to this st [...]

    5. Wow, what a fun sequel! If assassination plots and stealing fighter jets weren't enough, I'd read it for the *whispers* bathtub scene alone.

    6. I thought I could tell where this story was heading but then it went and totally surprised me. "l it takes is one generation to brainwash a population and convince them that reality doesn't exist."For real, there is seriously zero second book syndrome here. The world is creative and the story is super character-driven, which makes it even more emotional. Marie Lu's writing is just SO strong. I liked The Young Elites, but this is more like Warcross!! It's so well executed that it deserves all the [...]

    7. Well that ending is a really sad thing. I'm hoping something can change in the last book =( June and Day are sneaking their way into Vegas. They meet up with The Patriots and Tess. Day gets some new armor so to speak. They make plans to assassinate the new Elector, Anden. But . . . not everything is as it seems and maybe, just maybe, Anden can be trusted. Although, in this world it's really hard to trust any one. June goes undercover so to speak and finds out some information, the kind she wasn' [...]

    8. Final rating: 4.75/5 stars “He is beauty, inside and out.He is the silver lining in a world of darkness.He is my light.”WHYE.HELL.DID.IADISW???? It's killing me to wait another year for third book! Killing me i say!!!Especially after abooooooooooooooooooom ending like that T_____T It's going to be tortureeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! And i need next book nooooooooow!!!!!! I should have waited for the last book to come out! Oh and ending:#i was not expecting this_________________________________________ [...]

    9. Español - English "Nos hemos jugado la vida por nuestro país; no por el país en el que vivimos ahora, sino por el país en el que deseamos vivir.”Sinceramente, quien no la leído esta serie debe correr a hacerlo, es fantástica. Este segundo libro de la serie es incluso mejor que el primero porque conocemos más de los personajes, sus dudas de a quién le deben su lealtad. El personaje de Anden es el punto focal de la historia y las incógnitas de que pasará con La República. Y el final, [...]

    10. ❝He is beauty inside and out.He is the silver lining in a world of darkness.He is my light.❞I completely loved Legend. 4 stars, but I still enjoyed it. I loved Marie's The Young Elites and The Rose Society and I needed more of her writing since I had to wait for the 3rd book to publish, still am. And after reading Legend, I was glad I didn't have to wait to read the rest of the trilogy. I did wait even though I owned the books, but I think we all have been in that situation where you want to [...]

    11. 3.5 stars - BR with Lian. When you imagine the fall of the US as a democracy, what kind of state do you think will emerge? I imagine one of two options are most likely. 1) A fascist surveillance state - nothing is private, nothing is your choice, your every move is strictly directed and monitored by a governing force (possibly the military). Very little personal freedom. 2) A state ruled by money - as David Mitchell calls it in Cloud Atlas, a corporacracy. Every part of your life is determined b [...]

    13.

    14. this book was amazing. the ending was bittersweet, i cried. Marie Lu knows how to make you feel for a character. the ending. Day. Oh my gosh just so surprising. Day/ Daniel was such an inspiration! just wow. and June was such a strong character, she was even a strong willed character in her weakest moments. Just go get this book! its worth every penny!

    15. It was great to be reunited with Day and June again after so long. I believe Legend was the very first ARC I ever read, before I even knew what an ARC was (I won it) so it's a bit special to me. I easily found my way back into this story even after so long; a feat in of itself considering my lack of memory (it's scary how much I forget by the time a sequel releases). Prodigy lives up to its predecessor, maybe even surpassing it with the incredible progress in the world development--which was som [...]

    16. I AM AN EMOTIONAL WRECK RIGHT NOW I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY basically, this book did NOT disappoint but it did destroy meI'll admit it did take me longer to get into than Legend but when I got hooked I literally couldn't put this book downJune and Day will be the death of me that is all I have to say about themI loved the turn the story has taken in this book, the plot has thickened massively and I love it!! The action scenes are so well written that you can literally visualise it all perfec [...]

    17. 2.7/5 stars Prodigy was one of my most anticipated sequels of 2013. Unfortunately, it might be one of the most disappointing reads of the year as well, for the following reasons:1. The beginning bored me to death. The recap was lacking and I felt lost reading the story for a very long time. Also, the first half was unbearably slow. I kept skimming through large chunks of the narration in hopes that the pace would eventually pick up but it took over 50% for the action to really get going. 2. The [...]

    18. SO GOOD. Action packed and heart wrenching. Flew through it.Just uploaded my booktalk, review/reaction/discussion, yesterday! youtube/watch?v=fF9xWm

    19. “You know, sometimes I wonder what things would be like if I just met you one day. Like normal people do. If I just walked by you on some street one sunny morning and thought you were cute, stopped, shook your hand, and said, "Hi, I'm Daniel.” ^^^Yes I've read this series twice now and if you have read the third book, you can take a guess at why I'm drenched in my own tears The first book was good- cute, nothing amazingly spectacular but enough to make me really take an interest in the char [...]

    20. “Day, the boy from the streets with nothing except the clothes on his back and the earnestness in his eyes, owns my heart.”I must have read Legend three, maybe four years ago. Luckily websites like Recaptains have detailed summaries of such books, so I didn't have to reread the whole book again.I know that I really liked the first book in this series, but I think I might just be over this dystopian YA trope. Don't get me wrong: I love YA and I love dystopian fiction but I think I might have [...]

    21. 2.5 stars - SpoilersDisappointing. Prodigy reminded me too much of The Hunger Games, and not in a good way. Also, I hated Day and the dumb love square. -What's what: After June and Day escaped from the evul-but-not-actually-all-that-evul-Republic, they joined the not-so-evul-but-secretly-evul-Patriots. Also, June was given the task to assassinate the new Elector of the Republic. And Day reunited with his childhood friend, Tess… And then moaned about his life. Good times.-June was a decent enou [...]

    22. Stayed up late in the night to finish this one. Result: tears swelling in my eyes. Not from lack of sleep.Breathtakingly beatiful. Review tomorrow. I need to sleep on it.Tomorrow:"After an eternity, I swallow hard. I will not cry. Love is illogical, love has consequences- I did this to myself, and I should be able to take it. So take it, June."So. That ending.June was likeAnd Day was likeAnd the both of them were likeAnd it's better if I don't tell you what I was like because the image of that b [...]

    23. No, seriously this organ in my chest, I don't need it. That's not a spoiler, that's a warning. This book is such a riveting installment, but be warned that it will not pull at your heart strings, rather it will pluck them until they break. Okay, I love June. She's a fantastic heroine. A little too young, but I get Lu's reasons for making her 15. The reason I gave this four instead of five stars, well there's a couple. The first is I didn't love Day as much in this book, and I really needed to. H [...]

    24. This book was fantastic!!!! I was cheering towards the end and rooting for June and Day. I am even digging and falling for Anden and his good heart. I hope he doesn't change in the last book and turn out to be one of the bad guys!!

    25. This is even better then the first book! I really enjoyed June in this book a lot more than I did in the last one, I am really looking forward to reading the next book but I don't want it to end:(
