I wasn't really exited to start reading the Legend trilogy and when I finished the first book I thought that it was an "OK" novel but didn't have what it takes to make me eager to go all the way. Nonetheless, I decided to start "Prodigy" and It was much better than the first one and had more mysteries and was more Intriguing which added something extra to the plot.
In the first book, the personalities of June & Day was much alike that I couldn't imaging them as two but in "Prodigy" the distinction between these two main characters was more pronounced and well built.
The story was good and I think it's a good book for who likes dystopias in general and I think it's much more better than "The Hunger Games". It gives you a good prospective in comparing different worlds and let you think more in "what if I was in the other persons shoes?"
When I got familiar with the characters I felt that some of the actions written wasn't supposed to be the real response rather it was the author's own prospective and served her in how she wanted to close the chapter. So, sometimes I felt that the original response should have been different.
All that said, I give it a 3.5 stars.
Most of the times, I can't be objective when I really like a book because I usually become captured when it's ending is captivating as this one. But if you only like happy endings then I don't think you're going to like this one.
Having a death as a narrator was simply amusing and delightful, as strange as it may seem, and you will only feel it when you read it. The narrator himself was also excellent and added a nice taste to the book.
Sometimes it was a little boring but since it's not that big it didn't last for long.
Overall it deserves a 4.5 stars on my scale.
