If there is one fall release I am super excited for, it’s Champion by Marie Lu. Why you ask? WHY?! Do you guys remember what happened at the end of Prodigy? No?! Well, welcome to the Cleverly Ambiguous Plot-Recap of Prodigy, also known as, Steph’s Prodigy Feels Rollercoster.
So June and Day were on the run from the baddies and I was all:
Then a bunch of stuff is happening at once (explosions, guns, fighting, oh my!) and I’m worried for all the characters. I mean, where were the Power Rangers when I needed them? But I put my battle face on, which basically means there was a lot of lip-biting to rival a Twilight movie.
And even though I felt Marie had taken my heart through a meat shredder, she gave me a reprieve with June’s speech. I was really proud of June, so obvs I was all:
So I get to the last few pages and things are looking on the up and up. Prodigy was so much more than I expected and I went:
Just when I think everything’s all good and dandy, the last page drop kicks me and this happens:
Prodigy left off left me in a puddle of feels, shamelessly begging for more. But where does that leave us with Champion?! If the trailer is any indication, we are in for supreme action! Now, I’m the kind of person who usually dislikes most book trailers, but this was pretty good and the special effects were surprising. Check it out!
What do you guys think will happen to our favorite duo in Champion?
I’m literally dying with anticipation! (Hahaha. Well, not literally. But I’ve literally been waiting to use the word “literally” wrong in a sentence. Literally.) Can you believe it comes out next week?! I totally expect for us all to do a mass twitter readalong to be there for each other’s long list of feels.
He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion?
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 once again. 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 he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.
