Marie Lu’s second book, Prodigy, the sequel to Legend officially hit bookstores yesterday on Jan 29th, 2013. Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in Redondo Beach hosted a book launch party with a Q&A and a book signing session. The author was surrounded by family, friends and tons of her fans — especially young girls who are young adult readers. It was fun to see them have the opportunity to ask very intelligent questions about Marie’s story, characters and her writing methods.
Prodigy picks up where the first book left of with June and Day on the run from the Republic. Watch this very cool trailer by Mainstay Production to get an idea of how tense the story is. I would be surprised if Prodigy didn’t leave people wanting to flip tables (in a good way) after the last page in the book! I am excited to hear or see all the fans’ reactions to the new reveals and twists.
If you haven’t ordered your copy yet, do it now!
It was great to be back at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore which now has a great cafe, Catalina Coffee and Cafe, attached to it with amazing seats and drinks. If you’re local around Redondo Beach or in the South Bay, I highly recommend the spot to readers and writers.
It was a fun night and all the LA Defective Geeks ladies made it to support our friend. Congratulations again, Marie!
