    “Love is illogical love had conseuences I did this to myself and I should be able to take it” ☆☆☆☆☆5 WHOLY STARS☆☆☆☆☆ Marie Lu never disappointsI had really high expectations for this seuel and they were all metThis may not be my best reviewbecause I am still under the obsession of Outlanderso I might miss some parts or mess somethingI am ready for the finale Champion Prodigy is an action pack dystopianfilled with moments that keep you turning pagesIt contains emotions feelings smart thoughts and full action scenesAlso a lot of secrets are discoveredwe have the chance to know about the main charactersalso some characters that had a huge part in Legend “See? she says tricked you You're always staring at your opponents eyes but that gives you a bad peripheral viewIf you want to track my arms and legs you have to focus on my chestI raise my eyebrow at that say no ” Since I first read Legend I always wanted to know about the cityand outside itWe are introduced here with the underground worldalso the ColoniesI always wandered how the Colonies were likeand I never imagined they would be that developedThey were better than the RepublicAlso the scene with the plane was awesomeone of my favorite scenes of this book “He pauses when he finishes undoing the last button then closes his eyes I can see the pain slashed across his face and the sight tears at me The Republic's most wanted criminal is just a boy sitting before me suddenly vulnerable laying all his weaknesses out for me to see” The beginning was gooda little slowbut goodAfter the failed Assassination things started to get really excitingThe tunnelsthe planethe balcony were some of the great scenes I truly enjoyedAnd then comes the ending with one of the biggest cliffhangers everRight in the feels “We're in this together right? he whispers You and me? You want to be here yeah? There's guilt in his uestions Yes I reply I chose this Day pulls me close enough for our noses to touch I love you” The characters are well developedeven that I don't think that they can get developmentbecause they are the smarteststrongestwisest teens I knowSeriouslysometimes I forget they are 15This book follows the story of the first bookLegendwith Day and June trying to get into the Patriots to save EdenThey accept them with one conditionto kill the new ElectorThey agree to do itbut with time they find out that the Elector is not who they think he isI don't want to spoil anything but the ending will hit you hard “Yeah something was wrong That was the understatement of the year” I highly recommend this book if you like dystopiansIt is one of my favorite dystopian series and I can't wait to read the finalePictures from the review are not mine I took them mostly from Google images or Tumblr

    Actual rating 45 stars Well well well Here I am yet again eating my words A year ago when I read Legend I complained about the world building Mind you I did think it was a fast paced exciting read but it felt incomplete as a dystopian novel because I couldn't fully visualize how the society fit into the world as a whole By the end I was left with so many uestions about how everything functioned I felt like Marie Lu was purposefully keeping secrets from me just to string me along to book two Well I supposed it did work and to my immense delight it was well worth the wait And I loved itInstantly I noticed a change from Legend to Prodigy The biggest being the change in my opinion over the two main characters June and Day Originally June and I didn't mesh well but in Prodigy that situation was flipped It was Day that was the new thorn in my side for the majority of the book From the beginning June warns Day of the Patriots and their leader Razor but Day blinded by his hatred of the Republic for destroying his family fails to heed her warning A part of this is due to doubt of June's loyalty being placed in his head from other Patriots and his best friend Tess who is not ashamed to show her dislike for June And just when I thought I had it up to here with him he wised up and took action The old Day that warmed my heart in Legend was backJune on the other hand I liked very much I thought her character growth was a vast improvement from Legend because she's clearly learned from past actions In Prodigy she is aware of the corruption in the Republic and is therefore able to pinpoint wary situations Yet the thing she struggles with the most in this seuel are her feelings for Day and how their relationship could possibly work out given their backgrounds Can they remain together even with the knowledge that June's actions in Legend resulted in the murdering of his family? Are they simply too different for it to work being from opposite economic classes? And then there's Anden the new Elector Primo whose interest in June was shown in Legend and apparently still holding firm Wouldn't it just be easier to be with someone like him? That's the predicament June finds herself in And while it may sound rather angsty the way I've described it I never felt it was overdone to the point of instant headdesk ationAnother improvement was the world building And with that I'm now wondering if I'm often too hard on first books in dystopians I'm noticing a trend with world building becoming pronounced in the second books in series when I usually prefer some sort of set up to the story Perhaps this is just my high fantasy mind kicking into gear But everything came together nicely here We found out how the country was split into two separate ones We find out how the outside world views the Republic We find out what's going on in the Colonies though I would have loved to hear about them Sure I would have loved to know a little of this during Legend but I have to say I've enjoyed the ride thus farFinally there's the ending which I will warn other readers does end in a rather disturbing cliffhanger sniff In my Legend review I complained about the illusion of Day and June's invincibility N n not so in Prodigy hiccup Okay okay I admit it I was a teensy bit emotional But only for like five seconds plus an hour or twomaybe And now I'm secretly cursing myself for ever complaining in the first place Why? WHY? WHY? OH GOD WHY DO AUTHORS KEEP DESTROYING MY FEELINGS? First I was in a bit of shock Marie Lu wouldn't do that to me I mean she had built up the anticipation perfectly throughout the entire novel I thought ALL THE THINGS were going to be okie dokie  We interrupt your regularly scheduled review for a moment of angst end moment of angst Er Sorry that was weirdSo then when I finished the book and was LEFT ON THE BLOODY CLIFF I was like Marie no you evil genius no So basically Marie Lu has me hook line and sinker I'm completely enthralled in this series and I can't wait to see what happens nextBig thank you to Anna from Literary Exploration for lending me her ARC More reviews and other fantastical things at Cuddlebuggerycom

    ^My thoughts on having to wait a whole year for the next book I've been so pleasantly surprised by my long awaited January seuels first Through the Ever Night then Everbound and now Prodigy has come in and turned a series I was on the fence about into one where I anxiously obsess over what will happen in the next installment Marie Lu really focuses on developing her characters here whilst still exploring the politics of her dystopian society and introducing one really evil twist to this storyThe highlight of this book for me was Anden I am delighted with how Lu handled his character and made her story so much complex than a simple battle of good vs evil This novel asks the uestion who are the good guys? And you keep changing your mind about the answer The journey we are taken on here is fast paced we see Day and June divided over their loyalties to different people as they team up with the Patriots to carry out an assassination plot on the new Elector Primo The map gets a little bit bigger too and we start to get a clearer picture of what the rest of the world is up to at this point and just how this society was formed This is information I was longing for in Legend and was disappointed not to get it but I am just relieved that this is one of those cases where the author actually knows what she's doing She knows why and how her dystopian society came into being and doesn't throw around empty words like rebellion and war hoping that will be enough to satisfy her readersI was one of the minority that didn't feel much either way for June and Day in Legend I liked them enough because they didn't annoy me or anything like that but I thought there was a lack of character development No such problem here I feel like this second book tests them as people and challenges their ability to trust each other the battle is a much psychological one than in the first book and this allows us to see sides of their characters that we didn't know before And Lu doesn't stop there There are so many characters in Prodigy that become important developed Tess begins to doubt Day's loyalty Kaede is hilarious and I love her spirit and Anden is just brilliant And the ending Oh my god THE ENDING I just can't no no no you can't just do something like that Part of me loves that Marie Lu went there and part of me is freaking out view spoilerShe can't actually kill him right? sob She better not hide spoiler

    Wow what a fun seuel If assassination plots and stealing fighter jets weren't enough I'd read it for the whispers bathtub scene alone

    Well that ending is a really sad thing I'm hoping something can change in the last book June and Day are sneaking their way into Vegas They meet up with The Patriots and Tess Day gets some new armor so to speak They make plans to assassinate the new Elector Anden But not everything is as it seems and maybe just maybe Anden can be trusted Although in this world it's really hard to trust any one June goes undercover so to speak and finds out some information the kind she wasn't expecting to find out I still loved the book I loved the action I loved most everything but that one revelation and I will never tell Of course most of you have read the books anyway On to the next MY BLOG Melissa Martin's Reading List

    Final rating 4755 stars “He is beauty inside and outHe is the silver lining in a world of darknessHe is my light” WHYTHEHELLDIDIREADTHISNOW???? It's killing me to wait another year for third book Killing me i say Especially after a booooooooooooooooooom ending like that TT It's going to be tortureeeeeeeeeeeee And i need next book nooooooooow I should have waited for the last book to come out Oh and ending#i was not expecting this The good 1 enjoyment i certainly enjoyed this far than when i read Legend it's much amazing and just ♥♥♥ 2 character development seriously 3 world building Finally there were answers about whowhatwherehow and such And it's much info than it was in the first book More explanations about Republic and Colonies and even outer world and it was cool The bad ermmmmmmmmmmmmthere was nothing i guess D Characters Day Our baby grows up ♥ He definitely gets developed because now we can see his struggles with what is right and wrong and who to trust and who not a lot of uestions a lot of doubt and so much But he is in every way just adorable and huggable Especially in the ring scene That was something cutest i have ever read And we get to find out something interesting about him he has inferiority complex and he has Stockholm syndrome Now let me explain Inferiority complex comes from his thinking that June is from high class and that he is practically no one has nothing he thinks he is not worthy of her and it just fcks him up Scene 01 After he tells June that he loves her and she answers nothing “I suddenly feel so stupid for telling her that I love her as if I’d be able to make her love me in return like some common girl from the streets She didn’t say it back anywayWhy do I even care? It shouldn’t hurt this much Should it? Don’t I have important stuff to worry about? # facepalm Scene 02 Conversation between Tess and Day “What’s the matter with you?” At my silence she puts her hand on my arm “Well do you love her?” she says uietly “Does she love you?”Love her? I’d told her so in that Vegas bathroom and I’d meant it But she didn’t say it back yeah? Maybe she never felt the same way—maybe I’m just deluding myself “I don’t know okay?” I reply My words sound angrier than I actually am #extreme head deskNo need for right? And then we have his Stockholm syndrome conversation with Tess i will leave the uote say the rest ““Day” she begins again “have you ever wondered why you like June so much? I mean—well—given how you were arrested and all—”I shake my head “What do you mean?”She takes a deep breath “I’ve heard of this thing somewhere before on the JumboTrons or something where they were talking about prisoners from the Colonies About how kidnapping victims fall for their captors”I frown The Tess I know is fading away into a cloud of suspicion and dark thoughts “You think I like June because she arrested me? You really think I’m that twisted in the head?”“Day?” Tess says carefully “June turned you in”I throw down Tess’s hands “I don’t want to talk about this”Tess shakes her head mournfully her eyes glossy with unshed tears “She killed view spoiler your mother hide spoiler

    ❝He is beauty inside and outHe is the silver lining in a world of darknessHe is my light❞ I completely loved Legend 4 stars but I still enjoyed it I loved Marie's The Young Elites and The Rose Society and I needed of her writing since I had to wait for the 3rd book to publish still am And after reading Legend I was glad I didn't have to wait to read the rest of the trilogy I did wait even though I owned the books but I think we all have been in that situation where you want to finish a series but another series or standalone book calls your name And now here I am a little upset with Prodigy because nothing happened in the beginning a little in the middle and everything just broke my heart in the end I love Marie Lu I love how she changes her characters and either makes them weak and stubborn to strong powerful and dark Or just adds small and enough changes to the other characters because a lot isn't really needed That's what happened in Prodigy Few people ever kill for the right reasons THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM LEGEND Prodigy starts off where Legend left off June and Day have escaped Los Angeles and are headed to Las Vegas After escaping they both know they are the most wanted criminal and traitor of the Republic so they pretty much know they have to escape somewhere else and not let any of the other soldiers track them down As Day and June are headed for Las Vegas they know their only chance of escaping for good and not being tracked down is to join The Patriots another group that is well known for their criminals Even with Day having a broken leg and June not being able to completely let go of the republic that knew her as a prodigy and one of the best soldiers she can't completely let go of the place she so called home at times But a lot of things have happened once they arrive The Elector dies and it's up to his son Anden to take control and manage a way for the people to love him and be like his father Or not be like his father The reason for the joining of The Patriots Day and June are sure they are the only ones that can help Day save his brother Eden And now that they are given orders that were unexpected and not being sure how to complete them one including killing the new Elector Primo Day and June must work together with each other and trust The Patriots and see where this all leads to Maybe there will be vengeance? Maybe people will listen to their innocence? Maybe there will be war and chaos? Love is illogical love had conseuences—I did this to myself and I should be able to take it June really is the same June in Legend She hasn't changed much and that was something I really liked She didn't betray anyone or lie to anyone and didn't go back to the Republic and either turn herself in or anyone else in She was loyal to The Patriots just like she was loyal to the Republic and was the same June that still seeks vengeance for her brother and risks her life for the boy that she loves but can't express her feelings She was still a kickass heroine but was still the same one that cares about the people she loves She focuses on her missions and sets her mind where it should beDay hasn't changed either His leg is broken but after being fixed he goes off running and is still the same amazing runner Razor heard about him Razor is the leader from The Patriots His relationship with June grows in some scenes but fades in others and it gets complicated but Day knows he loves the strange girl he met only ending up betraying him but helping him at the end He knows he loves her but he also knows it's a long step to make to tell her he loves her and he knows there is too much going on between them Even with that he agrees to help The Patriots if they help him back and as he and June help each other out they're able to speak their voices for the people and Day is able to see his little brother Eden again just what he was hopingAs for the other characters Tess was a complete bitch and I hated her for changing so damn much She was so jealous of Day and June's relationship and would try to give him reminders that she is the reason for his mother's death and brother John That she is the reason he got beaten up and suffered in the Republic That she is still loyal to the murderers of his family and would be able to break his heart any momentTess was also ignorant of June's decisions and how much she actually did when Tess was really nothing and did nothing I just hated her so much and I was glad she wasn't part of their journey but would always there for Day when he was hurt Sure he had someone but if it was someone else like Kaede or Razor himself would be better Tess would just argue with him and tell him their relationship wouldn't work and that why is it that he fell in love with her in a couple of months and thanks her for saving him when Tess would help him multiple times and that they've known each other for so long Okay I got it I understood they're basically childhood friends and trust each other completely but even with that it wasn't really necessary for Tess to get so jealous because Day decided to choose Tess The saving was completely different Day was about to get killed and Tess didn't do anything compared to saving him when he was about to be executed Her saving were completely different If I knew or remembered them I would say but I don't so I can't Also it's funny because June saved Tess when Tess was about to fight Kaede In Legend Tess accidentally ended up in a brawl of fighters and when Kaede was about to put it up June took her spot and decided to fight for her Damn Not even with a save from getting a face broken is she thankful PatheticKaede was cool and a little show off just because she's been with The Patriots for so long and knows a lot Her arm is still broken from the time June broke it so that made me happy Is that bad? Hey she thought she was all tough and shit but she was really nothing compared to June She's strong and was always the one going on the trips with Day and showing him how it's done They had some funny moments and I was glad there was no love triangle between them unlike Day June and Tess Well it was Tess's fault Razor is known as the leader of The Patriots He was also part of the Republic but that was just for additional information and giving it to The Patriots He wasn't loyal to the Republic but acted like one He was the one who set up the plans and told June and Day what they had to do Other than that there wasn't much to it He knew was he was doing since he probably the oldest and always knew how to solve a situationAnden is actually the one who changed He's nothing like his father and maybe never was just seemed like it He was caring and kind to June and I know there are some that ship him with June and want them together and I admit I woudn't care After that ending and seeing Day didn't try much it wouldn't bother me But I don't think it will really happen He was expected as an arrogant boy ruler but instead he really wanted to help his people and wanted everyone to rise with him There was no faith in him and it left me a little upset but I was glad Day was there to speak his voice and let everyone hear them talk about the truth about this young boy rulerThomas is still an asshole and I hate him I'm just waiting for something to happen to him in Champion that involves either being killed by June or Day themselves becoming poor and homeless or just being executed by someone I just want him to die and to not continue through the whole novel of Champion He's still a lying ass and I hate him for everything he has done He thinks he's cool and shit when he's jus a piece of shit and a weak ass He can't do anything and I hate him for stealing Ollie from Mettias and June He used him to track her down and I hate him for it but I was glad he didn't do anything If he hurt him a slight bit I would've cried and this would've lost a star just for that I'm just hoping something bad happens to himThe writing is similar to Legend June's perspective is black font and Day's is the color of the book so blue It was confusing at first and I'm not the biggest fan of colored font but I was able to keep up and keep the pages turning without repeating line over line because of how confusing the color was at first Marie didn't add a lot of changes and I was glad but I was expecting a lot action and fighting scenes I was glad she worked on the romance and relationship between Day and June Like others the bathroom scene was probably my favorite The ending was really sad and broke me because I really don't know what I'm expecting in Champion now and see where this all goes I know romance isn't the main focus of the book but I actually hope it all works out and I hope they get to be together again and actually work it all out Like I said I was expecting fighting scenes and only got a few Unlike Legend everything sped up and got really good towards the middle around page 250 I was upset because there was no focus other than romance plans and communications Hopefully there's a lot in Champion and hopefully everything I expect will be there What I really expect is for Thomas to fight someone I just want his ass kicked it's all I'm hoping to see Everything I am familiar with is gone I'm really looking forward to Champion but I don't have high expectations I had a lot for Prodigy and only a few were met The only reason I was really looking forward for this was because I saw the book trailer and I literally fell in love It's so simple and short but it was enough to grab my attention Hopefully Champion is better and there are most sci fi elements

    35 stars BR with Lian When you imagine the fall of the US as a democracy what kind of state do you think will emerge? I imagine one of two options are most likely 1 A fascist surveillance state nothing is private nothing is your choice your every move is strictly directed and monitored by a governing force possibly the military Very little personal freedom 2 A state ruled by money as David Mitchell calls it in Cloud Atlas a corporacracy Every part of your life is determined by your economic standing; free social service is nonexistent Freedom based on income My point Prodigy was an interesting read for me because it depicts the US falling into ruin then splitting into two halves each spiraling down to become one of the options above The Republic Option OneThe Colonies Option TwoThere's some food for thought Perhaps Marie Lu shares my views on the fall of the US I didn't mention this in my review of Legend because the dystopian world of the series wasn't explained and expanded until Book 2 The worldbuilding I missed in the first book was delivered in Prodigy which was a relief I couldn't give Prodigy a full five stars because of LOVE TRIANGLES UGHNot one but TWO new love triangles are established in this book and it pisses me off Not because it was unrealistic; people fall in love in inconvenient ways all the time so that was definitely believable What I can't stand is when authors turn perfectly kind and lovable people into complete dicks for the sake of resolving a love triangle conflict Ever read the Shatter Me series? Think about Adam's transformation and you'll know what I mean So Tess a lovely girl with great prospects and an admirable PLATONIC relationship with Day all of a sudden falls for him and turns into a raging asshat This is not okay Slow building character developmentdeterioration that's reasonable Total 180s out of nowhere NOPE Stop that shit Aside from that Though the plot was a bit slow the unveiling of the Republic's inner workings and the glimpse at the Colonies made up for it I enjoyed Prodigy nearly as much if not just as much as Legend
