A brilliant re-imagining of "Les Miserables", the series is set to be a global film sensation as CBS films have acquired rights to the trilogy.

Injured and on the run, it has been seven days since June and Day barely escaped Los Angeles and the Republic with their lives. Day is believed dead having lost his own brother to an execution squad who thought they were assassinating him. June is now the Republic's most wanted traitor.

The action scenes in this book are particularly pulse-pounding. -

Prodigy is the riveting tale of June Iparis, a rogue republican agent who in an act of pure love assists the country’s most notorious criminal escape his execution and flee to the colonies of America.

On the border a vicious war is being fought for control over the entire of America. But the plot thickens as a traitor is found among the Patriot’s ranks and they are forced into anarchy, right before the completion of a vital assignment.

Prodigy is a thrilling read, the plot twists and turns and the pace is difficult to keep up with. Although the book is set in the future, it has a very political tone to it, what with the themes of civil war, rebellion and dictatorship.

The action scenes in this book are particularly pulse-pounding, as they combine witty dialogue with dramatic narrative.

Rated 5/5 stars
