They immediately hear the news that the Elector has been killed, which leaves the elector's son, Anden (whom June met in Legend), as the new leader.
June and Day agree to this plot and June allows herself to be caught so that she can be taken to Denver. Her job is to gain the trust of the new elector, assist in getting the rebels into the city, and finally, assassinate Anden.
Of course, things aren't all they seem - and it's often difficult to tell which faction is in the right. There are plenty of twists and turns - and friends who suddenly become enemies. But through it all, June and Day remain faithful to eachother, which keeping a sole focus of saving Day's brother Eden along the way.
Prodigy is a great continuation of Legend - and when I completed it I couldn't wait to grab a copy of Champion and continue the series!
Champion proved to be a fantastic final book to the Legend trilogy! It was as exciting and fast-paced as the first two books, and there were many additional twists and turns as June and Day attempted to protect the republic from the rebels and from the Patriots.
By this time both Day and June have become heroes among the people - and have changed their allegiance to the republic.
Once again I was struck by the possibilities that the Legend series offers. A country facing huge challenges due to drought and water shortage. Countries around the world taking advantage of the situation and becoming world powers. Cruel and corrupt leaders. Massive amounts of technological knowledge. It is the perfect illustration of a country losing its ethical and its democratic beliefs.
I thoroughly enjoyed the entire Legend series by Marie Lu - and I hope that you do as well!
