Prodigy (Legend #2) by Marie Lu

Synopsis: "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?

In this highly-anticipated sequel, Lu delivers a breathtaking thriller with high stakes and cinematic action."

My Word: NO

What.....What even.

I feel like Marie Lu likes to kill our hearts.

YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO ME MARIE LU. YOU CAN'T. I'll just hide in my room and sob until November...

I actually would've written a reasonable review if the ending didn't tear me apart. You can just delete the last 20 pages or so and everything would be okay, but THIS?! No, okay? This can't be happening.

I can't wait until June and Day get back together, and Kaede comes back to life, and Tess leaves the picture. Until then, leave me be with my bowl of ice cream and tears.

Okay, this book overall was so suspenseful and action packed and romancy and all the good stuff that I like to consume. During Legend and Prodigy, I kept turning each page, hoping to find the answers, and hoping that everything will be ok in the end.

The only difference is that I was perfectly fine with the ending of Legend, and NOT with Prodigy.

June and Day are perfect for each other, and I don't care if any of you protest that because they just are. It's final. June is so kickass, I wish I could be as amazing as her. Unfortunately, I'm not. Day is so hot and unbelievably perfect in my mind, and he's also kickass. The perfect kickass couple.

I HATE you suspenseful book. You twisted my mind. Everything was great in the end, and then some heartless author AKA Marie Lu (Just kidding, I love her) came behind my back and stabbed me until I officially died of my feels... Damn you Prodigy! This next book better have a god damn happy ending!
