Thirty-Five Days After Metias’s Death

June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.

It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.

But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengence, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?

I read Legend about a year ago, and picking the second book for this week's WoW post only makes me want to re-read it. It was just so interesting, so fast-paced and intelligent and well-written. This one sounds like the stakes will be cranked up so much higher than they were in the first book, and so I'm really looking forward to January when this comes out. :)
