Well, on the third try I finally made it all the way through Prodigy. I'm not sure why it didn't really connect with me. There's nothing wrong with this book exactly, I just didn't really care about the characters. Despite the action and the fast-pacing, I could have put this book down at any time and just walked away, no problem. In fact, I did that twice. I'm not sure if I'll read the third one.
