The Jewel, By Amy Ewing, a jewel of a book!

In the universe where The Jewel,by Amy Ewing , takes place the world works in a different way. There are rings of social living areas, the poorest being the marsh on the outer ring and the richest in the center called the jewel. The jewel houses the royals who are incapable of carrying their own children and use surrogates who posses powers to enhance the their child. These surrogates with a special gene mutation come from the marsh and are taken from their home as soon as they hit puberty, then they are trained in their powers for years.

The story centers around Violet, a surrogate who is bought by the “duchess of the lake” and you follow her through her struggles. Be it through the secret love affair that can get her killed or her plans to escape. This story is a captivating read, I stayed up to the wee hours of the morning finishing it and I loved it it can’t wait for number two and neither will you once you read it. You can pick this book, the first in the lone city series, up in September 2014! Enjoy!
