She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion?
June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republicâ€”and each otherâ€”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 governmentâ€™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 Republicâ€™s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her countryâ€™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 Luâ€™s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.
