This one took a little longer for me to get really interested in, but once I was invested, I couldn't put it down. I have a habit of reading the last couple of pages of the books I read whenever conflict starts. I did it with Prodigy pretty much right after I started it. I don't recommend doing it [and maybe THAT'S why I couldn't get into the story]. What I didn't see coming were the various twists through out the plot. Including a serious one that really explains what's going on in that last chapter. It was good to get back into the head's of June and Day. I'm eager for the final book to see where it all goes from here.
