Prodigy follows the story of June and Day, a prodigy and a criminal. They are running from the republic after Day's brother's execution. They go to the patriots for help, an agree to asassinate the new Elector Primo, Anden. Soon, they realise that not everything is as it seems, and maybe there is a chance for The Republic after all.

Prodigy was even more action packed than Legend. It goes at a steady pace, although the last few chapters went at a…
