It's here. It's FINALLY here, guys. :heart: Prodigy (Legend #2) is now out in the world! I'm sure you've all heard me lament about this already, but Prodigy was perhaps the most difficult book I've ever written. (I say this, of course, in lieu of Legend #3, which also killed me to write.) Now I'm super nervous, anxious, and excited to hear what you all think of Prodigy. I hope you guys enjoy it!

To celebrate, I have a fantastic surprise for you guys today. Ever wanted to see Day in parkour action? Well, wait no more. Check out this Prodigy trailer of EPIC proportions: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdorzC…

-----

For any in the Southern California area, you are all invited to come out for the Prodigy launch event tonight (Jan. 29). Details below:

I really liked your book Prodigy. I didn't like the princeps, though. It sounded a bit cheesy. With Legend, I was a bit skeptical of June and Day getting together so early in the series, but the way you ended Prodigy, that was the best ending of a book. I can't wait to read the third book!

That book was amazing. I don't think I've ever wanted to cry, laugh, and throttle someone all at the same time before. I can't wait for the third book.

I pre-ordered Prodigy and when it popped up on my Kindle the 29th, I 'dropped' what I was reading. I first re-read Legend to have current in my mind, then I read Prodigy. I just finished it and I came to your website to look and see if there is going to be a Legend Series #3. I am going to imagine Day and June in their last moment in the book, indefinitely! Each book drew me in immediately and carried me along on an amazing journey where I fell for these kids. When, oh, when can we expect the next book???

I got a Kindle for chistmas and one of the first things I did was pre-order Prodigy. I swear, one of the best possible things to wake up to is having a fantastic book ready for you the minuet you get up!! :D I am well on my way through it and it is fantastic!! I suspect I would have finished it by jnow if it were not for the fact that its finals week where I live and now I must sadly go to bed :(

The trialer is awesome, cannot wait for Legend 3!!! :squee:

Believe it or not, but I found a hardcover copy of Prodigy at this grocery/department store called Meijer last night. They must have put them out early, and didn't realize the release sate was the 29th. I bought it. And saw the awesome map inside! :)

I have a cousin that lives in Santa Monica...maybe I can get him to go for me! Unfortunately, Massachusetts is on the other side of the universe, and my latest attempts to recreate a functioning warp pad have been unsuccessful.

I live right next to Boston.From the top of my schools soccer field, which is on like a hill thing, you can see Boston in the distance

Oh excellent! I'm going to school north of Boston - not close enough that you can see the city, but my dorm is very close to the water, which is nice (in the spring - not so much now, because sea breeze in winter = frigid wasteland).

Cool. That's sucks that it gets freezing, but I know what you mean.
I once went up to Maine and I had to shovel my vacation home, and the house has no heat at all so it was terrible.
