June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps-Elect, while Day has been assigned a high-level military position.

But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them: just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything.

What I Have To Say

I have to say,  approached this book with caution, because honestly I liked how Prodigy ended. It was sad, but it felt like an ending. June and Day's story aside, I could see what else could happen. But I was so very wrong. 

Antartica was my favourite part I think. Though it was a bit apart from the main story, it was cool to see another part of the world. Though I would have liked to see how it all worked and more importantly: what's wrong with it. Because the best part of these worlds is finding the dark secrets that are hidden beneath the surface. 

Day was also completely adorable with Eden, so it was nice to see them get some time together to just be brothers even if it was short lived. 

I really really loved this trilogy and the ending was good. It may have felt a little convenient but it made the romantic in me happy.
