 Prodigy (Legend #2) by Marie Lu Really like this series a lot.  This second book is even better than the first.  review posted here:

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)Currently Reading : Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.  So far it is really good, but is very similar in premise to the covenant series by Jennifer Armentrout. I believe VA came out first.

Up Next? 

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1) To all the boys I’ve loved before by Jenny Han.  I won this book on a giveaway from Goodreads.  It looks cute and fun and can’t wait to read it.

Touch of Power (Healer, #1) I still have Touch of Power by Maria Snyder on my kindle too.  I liked the Poison series but heard mixed about this one.

 

And as always you never know what little treasure will show up and DEMAND to be read.  Happy reading everyone.

Prodigy (Legend #2)

   Prodigy (Legend, #2)  Prodigy (Legend #2) by Marie Lu. Published January 29, 2013 by Juvenile Putnam.  CDN #10.99 Kindle edition.

Injured and on the run, it has been seven days since June and Day barely escaped Los Angeles and the Republic with their lives. Day is believed dead having lost his own brother to an execution squad who thought they were assassinating him. June is now the Republic’s most wanted traitor. Desperate for help, they turn to the Patriots – a vigilante rebel group sworn to bring down the Republic. But can they trust them or have they unwittingly become pawns in the most terrifying of political games?   (Goodreads Excerpt)

Well my first reaction is WOW. I LOVED this book. I think I loved it more than the first Legend. That is HUGE for a sequel. It is full of action, intrigue, suspense and hang onto your seat kind of stuff legends are made of…ok cheesy for sure…but true.

I have to say kudos to June. She is one badass, kick ass, smart, awesome heroine. I love her character. I mean you just have to like her from the start. Marie Lu does an awesome job of making us feel for her in every sense. And Day…OMG the interaction between these two is freaking awesome. (Sorry for all the awesome! I’m drooling over this series. And it’s my favorite word!) Anyway, I don’t want to give too much away but this book is well worth the read. And to think I stumbled upon it in my daughter’s bedroom. Didn’t even hear much about it until then. Whoda thunk? Smart kid.

Oh did I forget to tell you about the cliff hanger? Nope cause I don’t do spoilers…lol but it is HUGE!

5 stars for me.

My Teaser:

Unexpectedly, he released my hand and leaned forward.  slowly, he reached out and held a lock of my hair, twisting it around one finger thoughtfully. I froze, and for a moment, thee was nothing going on in the world except him touching my hair.  He let my hair go,looking a little surprised-and embarrassed-at what he’d done.

54% on kindle.

My Teaser:

I look wildly around us.  Too many soldiers–we still have a lot of ground to cover.  “No you have to,” I say firmly. “Stay with me. You can make it.”

But it’s no use this time.  Before I can catch him, he falls onto is hands and collapses to the ground.

I’ve just barely started this, but I have high hopes since I really enjoyed the first book.
