Opinion: The most compelling aspect of the book for me was the dynamic relationship between the two protagonists, June and Day. Their contrasting backgrounds, skills, and personalities added depth to their interactions and made their journey even more engaging. I found myself interested in their personal growth than any other book I have read and the emotional rollercoaster they went through as they struggled with loyalty, trust, and their feelings for each other. Honestly, I wasn't disappointed at any point in the story. The plot was packed with action, suspense, and unexpected twists that kept me wanting to read more. I would recommend Prodigy to anyone who enjoys fast-paced, dystopian adventures with well-developed characters and thought-provoking themes. It's perfect for readers who love a blend of action, romance, and political intrigue. This book will keep you hooked from start to finish. It’s dystopian blend with war is one of the best I have ever seen. It is almost the same level as The Hunger Games which is arguably one of the best dystopian series. So I recommend this book to almost everyone who enjoys suspense and action. I give this book a 5/5.
