Waiting on Wednesday: Prodigy by Marie Lu

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
Prodigy by Marie Lu.
Publication Date: January 29th 2013.


Prodigy - Putnam Juvenile

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?
Synopsis from goodreads.com

I probably don’t have to say a lot about why I can hardly wait for this book. I received Legend as a gift last Christmas and I’ve kept returning to thinking about Day and June. I really hope that there will be a little more to the other characters (such as Tess) as well and that we’ll get to see some more of the world beyond the Republic. I also hope that my gut instinct is wrong when it comes to Anden, Day, and June regarding a certain geometrical shape.

Tell us about the books you look forward to in 2013 ... or maybe you picked a December title?

Ugh I definitely got this vibe when I read Legend, so let's hope we're both wrong!

My WoW this week is a special movie edition!
