ADD IT ON GOODREADS!
The Jewel means wealth. The Jewel means beauty. The Jewel means royalty. But for girls like Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Not just any kind of servitude. Violet, born and raised in the Marsh, has been trained as a surrogate for the royalty––because in the Jewel the only thing more important than opulence is offspring.
Purchased at the surrogacy auction by the Duchess of the Lake and greeted with a slap to the face, Violet (now known only as #197) quickly learns of the brutal truths that lie beneath the Jewel’s glittering facade: the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life.
Violet must accept the ugly realities of her existence . . . and try to stay alive. But then a forbidden romance erupts between Violet and a handsome gentleman hired as a companion to the Duchess’s petulant niece. Though his presence makes life in the Jewel a bit brighter, the consequences of their illicit relationship will cost them both more than they bargained for.
WHY I'M WAITING...
*instantly hooked* WOAH, LOOK AT THAT COVER X3 I so want a dress like hers so badly,♥.♥ It's so pretty! Although the font kinda reminds me of The Selection. Anyways...the story sounds very bleak and brutal, which wonderfully contrasts with that gorgeous cover. I don't know if I'll like it or not, since it sounds like it'll be a strong one in the moral department but then again I thought the same with Wither by Lauren DeStefano and i ended up LOVING that one. I'm kinda getting over the "forbidden romances" but this one sounds like it's really going to be a real forbidden one. So I'm still excited for this one and can't wait for it's release into the bookish world :)
