…hosted by Breaking the Spine

Prodigy by Marie Lu
Publishing: January 29, 2013 by Putnam Juvenille
Format: Hardcover, 384 pages


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?


I know this comes out in less than a week… but I’ve pre-ordered it and it is one of my most anticipated books of this year! The first book was amazing and I cannot wait to continue the story in this compelling dystopian world. Definitely one to pick up (as well as the first in the series) if you love dystopian / action / dual narratives / strong female characters. *eeee only 6 more days til this one… well, actually… a bit longer since I ordered this from online… argh*

What are you “Waiting On” this week?
