Waiting on Wednesday (89)

Hi everyone! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to share books we can't wait to read!

This week's pick is:
Prodigy by Marie Lu
January 29, 2013

Jan. 4. 1932 Hours.

Ocean Standard Time

Thirty-Five Days After Metias’s Death


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?

I absolutely loved Legend. It was a great dystopian. I'm so excited for this one too. Day and June are fantastic characters and the world this takes place in is very well-written! January can't come soon enough!

I can't wait to learn more about the world. The government and the outside were a little vague in the first novel so I'm excited to see how they handle it in this novel.
