The Overview: June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.
I know quite a few people who are eagerly awaiting the conclusion to this trilogy. It is considered the perfect substitute for those who liked Hunger Games and Divergent… perfect for the dystopian-obsessed like me. Even though a couple of people have recommended it to me, I haven’t read yet – but that’s is about to change. Legend is next on my list and I couldn’t be more excited. I have a feeling I’m going to be kicking myself for not waiting a little longer once I get to the end of Prodigy and have to wait until November for the conclusion.
