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?
In this highly-anticipated sequel, Lu delivers a breathtaking thriller with high stakes and cinematic action.

I really enjoyed the first book, and I thought this book was going in a completely different direction. I didn't hate the actual story, and I was even pleasantly surprised with the turn toward the end, but I felt like everyone was too emotional.
Recently found a love for books and with Audible I can clean and keep going - I also use it in my classroom to urge kids to read.
I prefer my Dystopian, USA self destroyed worlds to have a little less romance and a little more twist and turns. I can only start to predict what the Elector has in mind or what will happen to our main characters.
I didn't know what exactly to expect from Prodigy after reading Legend but this book really did surprised me by all means. I didn't have really high hopes for this series as Legend, despite being very tension-filled and engaging, had a rather mundane, clichè and predictable plot line. This book really changed my mind about this whole series as it is the perfect sequel to its first book. I see lots of character development and I root for all characters which is a huge success for Marie Lu herself. I am truly impressed.
I absolutely got into this book. Great twists and turns, with some very exciting and yet touching parts.
An intense story full of hope and deceit. I also love the narrators. They drew me into the story, and made me feel a wide range of emotion while listening. The most memorable part for me is the ending when I was folding laundry while listening. I had to stop and dry my eyes. I will definitely listen to the next in the series. In fact, I already own it.
The story kept up the same energy and action as the first book. The voice actors seemed to have adjusted to their character portrayals a lot better then in the first book.
