Prodigy Blog Tour With Marie Lu
Posted 01/25/2013 by alicemarvels in Author Guest Post
We’re so excited to have Marie Lu stopping by on her Prodigy Blog Tour today to share an excerpt from the book and her thoughts on it. Prodigy hits stores next Tuesday, and we couldn’t be more excited about it! If you haven’t read book one, Legend, never fear, you still have time to catch up.
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.
Day scoots the blanket aside. Underneath, there are plates of smooth metal (steel and titanium) where his wound used to be. The Medic also replaced his bad knee with an artificial one, and now a good third of his leg is metallic. He reminds me of the soldiers who come back from the warfront, with their synthetic hands and arms and legs, metal where skin used to be.
– June, page 66
I wouldn’t mind having access to the fashion of the Republic. I suppose I could just dress like they do, but I’d love to walk down the street wearing a full steampunk military uniform with shiny epaulettes and not get curious stares! Having bionic limbs like this would be pretty cool too. Very FullMetal Alchemist.
Thanks so much for sharing Marie! I wish I could rock the steampunk military chic look too.
