Review

If you liked The Hunger Games, you'll love this! (Sarah Rees-Brennan, author of The Demon's Lexicon )

A romantic thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world where nothing is what it seems--Legend is impossible to put down and even harder to forget. (Kami Garcia, New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Creatures )

I could only stand up and cheer, therefore, for Marie Lu's 'Legend.' A fine example of commercial fiction with razor-sharp plotting, depth of character and emotional arc, 'Legend' doesn't merely survive the hype, it deserves it. (New York Times )

Marie Lu's dystopian novel is a 'Legend' in the making (USA Today )

Product Description

Prodigy is the long-awaited sequel to Legend, THE must-read dystopian thriller novel for all YA readers.



Perfect for all fans of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Divergent by Veronica Roth. A brilliant re-imagining of Les Miserables, the series is set to be a global film sensation as CBS films have acquired rights to the trilogy. The Twilight Saga producers, Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey, will produce.



Injured and on the run, it has been seven days since June and Day barely escaped Los Angeles and the Republic with their lives. Day is believed dead having lost his own brother to an execution squad who thought they were assassinating him. June is now the Republic's most wanted traitor.



Desperate for help, they turn to the Patriots - a vigilante rebel group sworn to bring down the Republic. But can they trust them or have they unwittingly become pawns in the most terrifying of political games?



Dystopian fiction at its very best in this thrilling instalment in the Legend trilogy.




Praise for Legend:



'If you loved The Hunger Games, you'll love this.' - Sarah Rees-Brennan, author of The Demon's Lexicon

4.0 out of 5 stars Prodigy by Marie Lu 29 Jan 2013
By Amber
Format:Paperback
After much thought, I now feel comfortable saying that Prodigy is better than Legend. Yep, you heard that right. The middle book in the trilogy was better than the first. A rare occurence, right? And yet Marie Lu managed to pull it off.

In Prodigy, the stakes felt much higher, and the risks were greater. In Legend, I didn't feel too worried about how it would end, and what would happen to the characters. Day and June are main characters, and they're not going to be killed off in the first book in the series. They're not Ned Stark. In this fantastic sequel, however, I felt as though everything could collapse around them as they fought for their lives.
We learnt a bit about the Colonies, which is something I had been looking forward to since I started reading Legend. I'm so glad that Lu made the Colonies the way they are. I won't say too much, but it really punched the characters in the gut when they learnt these things.

In addition to learning about the Colonies, we also learnt more about the world outside of what was once the United States of America. Again, this was something that I was DYING to learn about. It's not very often that, in my experience at least, and author explains what has happened to the rest of the world. We learn about Europe, Africa, Asia, and even Antarctica. Australia was mentioned briefly, which was very true to all the other dystopian novels and movies out there *wink*

I adored June in this book. She has quickly become my favourite out of the two leads. She's so clever and calculating, and the way she puts everything together in this book was both impressive and wonderful. I was cheering her on the entire time.

As for Day... Well, he annoyed me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than Legend! 4 April 2013
Format:Paperback
I'm torn as to where to start with this review because there is so much I want to talk about! Firstly, I was a little nervous starting out because it had been so long since I read the first book, and because I got that from the library I wasn't able to re-read it in the run up and worried I might not be able to remember everything. But Prodigy has the recapping down absolutely perfectly! It managed to jolt my memory and take me right back to the first book without detracting from the current story. It was all weaved in brilliantly because the characters do a lot of reflecting on how they've got to be in the position they're currently in, so I was immediately back in that world and remembering everything that happens.

As with the first book, Prodigy alternates between June and Day's perspective. They start out together but spend some of the book separated and I loved how both of their points of view were key to the story. There's a lot of focus on the relationship between the two of them and I really like how complex it is and how much the two of them are still figuring each other out and addressing their differences. I'm reluctant to use the phrase "love triangle" because it doesn't really apply to this book, but there are other interests for both Day and June which shake the story up a bit. Both relate to characters introduced in the previous book so it's nothing too new, but I did like the exploration of everyone's feelings for each other. I really like how it isn't soppy or romantic at all. At the end of the day, it's not a love story. It's a story where people are going through a tremendous ordeal and worrying after their loved ones because of it. I think it had the perfect balance to keep you interested in who cares for who.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenonal sequel to Legend! 2 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Legend was a breath of fresh air to the saturated teen dystopian genre and Prodigy does not disappoint! Full of action, twists and the ever complicated relationship of June and Day I don't think Lu could have written a more perfect addition to the trilogy! I recommend the series to any lover of great teen fiction and I'm looking forward to the final instalment.

Great book! The sequel to the equally brilliant Legend. The story of Day and June continues and does not disappoint. I personally think this trilogy is better than The Hunger Games and Divergent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely put together 29 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
June and Day are on the run after she helped him escape from his execution, June is now a traitor and is wanted along with Day.
The patriots have took them over the border but Day wants to return to the city to get his brother Eden who is being kept by the Republic because he's infected with the plague.
They end up back in the city and agreeing to help the Patriots overthrow the Republic and they will help free Eden and fix Days leg.
The elector of the republic has dies and we see his young son stepping into his boots.
The patriots want June and Day to assassinate the new Elector but not everything is as it seems and they end up in a place they had dreamed about but is that place all that it seems to be and are the Patriots who they say they are.
There is a lot more to the book but I don't want to spoil anything for the readers, it's a brilliant book that you must read if you enjoyed the first book.
