Day has always been on the run, but now he has a purpose; freeing his younger brother from the clutches of the Republic. And June: She had no reason to run before, until she learned how the Republic was involved with the death of her family. Now she has given up her entire life to save Day and run with him.
When they seek the help of the Patriots, a group determined to stitch the two sides of the United States back together, they learn that the only way to get their help is to assasinate the Elector Primo. But is that what a country on the bring of collapse really needs?
This amazing sequel to Legend shows what happens when the weight of guilt and grief becomes too heavy to bear. Relying on just trust and hope, Day and June make the realization that the greass isn't always greener on the other side.
I found Prodigy to be a great sequel. The tension and page-turning never really stop. You get to see the points of view from two people who come from two completely different sides of society, and how they are never quite the same after their paths clash into each other.

The Dream Thieves
by Maggie Stiefvater ...
The second book in the raven cycle series is a wonderfully worded fairy tale with sleeping kings and dreamt night horrors. Throughout the story you follow the adventures of the raven boys - Noah, Gansey, Ronan and Adam - as well as the not-psychic daughter of psychics Blue Sargent as they try to find and wake Glendower, a lost welsh king, in the hills and mysterious forests of Virginia. This book is full of magic, despicable racers, charming hit-men and cryptic ephemeral psychics. If you liked any other of Maggie Stiefvater's books, or even if you didn't, you would enjoy this book.
