Prodigy by Marie Lu

This review may contain spoilers of previous books in the series

Summary:(from goodreads) 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 vengeance, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?
Review: This is the second book in the Legend trilogy and I really liked it. The plot was pretty fast paced and there was a good amount of action taking place. There were a few parts where I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation and suspense. I also appreciated that there was a more background information given about the past and how and why this society was formed.  There were also a few plot twists that surprised me. Although, the way things ended wasn't really a cliffhanger, it was shocking and I already can't wait for the third and final book in this trilogy. I absolutely love Day and June in this book. I think they both go through a lot of development in this book as they come to realize the truth of their situation. Overall, this was a great continuation of this series.
