Jill at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

I adored LEGEND and when I finished I only wanted more. Too bad that we have to wait until next year for the following novel PRODIGY, but all good things come to those who wait. 

Coming January 29, 2013
Prodigy
Legend, Book Two
by Marie Lu
ISBN-13: 978-0399256769
Putnam Juvenile, 384 pages.
Read an excerpt

--from books.usatoday.com

"Where are they going for the sequel? Not Disney World — Las Vegas. 
Military-trained whiz kid June and Robin Hood-esque Day met in the first book, and now are off from Los Angeles to Sin City in Prodigy (G.P. Putnam's Sons), out in bookstores Jan. 29. The Elector Primo of the Republic has died, with his son assuming power over what's left of the USA's West Coast as it teeters on full-blown chaos. June and Day join up with Patriot rebels so they can rescue Day's brother and head east for the Colonies. In order to help, though, the rebels want June and Day to kill the new Elector, who may be a step up from his dad."

  1. This is why I despise series, and the fact that I've started so many but still haven't finished ONE. I've forgotten what happened at the end of Legend. I remember that June's brother... and then there was that twist, and then...something else happens? Haha. I need to re-read!

  5. It's hard to live up to a Legend but Prodigy manages to entertain. The evil genius of Marie Lu will captivate readers and listeners alike while planting enough yummy possibilities to make fans groan over the long wait ahead.

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
