I am super excited to be a part of the blog tour for Prodigy by Marie Lu. Prodigy hit shelves January 29, so pick up your copy today! I enjoyed book one and I cannot wait to see where the story goes next.
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.
PRODIGY Excerpt: I try to imagine what it must’ve once been like, a time when there wasn’t a Republic or Colonies and a single country covered North America. “And no one knows they’re here?”Kaede snorts. “You think we’d be using these if the Republic knew about them? Not even the Colonies know. But they’re great for Patriot missions.” – Day, page 113
Marie’s thoughts: The Colonies is the flooded country that has replaced the eastern half of the United States. They have much less land mass than the higher and drier Republic, and so the two sides have fought for decades over the simple resource of land. At the same time, the Colonies is also more technologically advanced than the Republic, due to the nature of their society.
