I love Day and June. I love Day and June together. I think this was June's book overall, and I do seriously love me a strong female character...but this book had a serious "second book slump". It's a terrible syndrome and I kinda feel bad because I'm sure in my head, I'm comparing Prodigy to Through the Ever Night (Veronica Rossi) and Insurgent (Veronica Roth) which are second books in a YA dystopia trilogy and neither of THOSE slumped. So, I'm probably being unfair. It falls flat. The strongest part of the book was the last thirty pages (which is good. A weak ending can KILL a book for me). I'm a little disappointed, but not enough to give up on the series at all. It's still an engaging and promising story that I enjoy reading. I'm going to reread and make notes and collect my thoughts for a more thorough review of exactly how it fell flat.
