Description from Goodreads:
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 vengeance, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?


     " "Rarely has the Republic been as vulnerable as it is now. There will never be a better time to spark a revolution. ...there are two things you can give us that our other Runners can't. One: your fame, your status as the people's champion. And two"- he points his drink at June - "your lovely friend." " (page 29)

So this was just released today and I'm just a couple chapters in and gah I am LOVING it! The one thing I love about these books is the alternating text color for June and Day, and this time Day's text is this gorgeous deep blue!
