Waiting On Wednesday (110): The Jewel

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The book I´m waiting this week is

The Jewel by Amy Ewing 
Release date: September 2nd 2014
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.

  5. The book sounds kind of weired, but the cover is sooooo pretty!


  6. Goodness, this book sounds like a very tough one to read. But still, I am very interested in how the author approaches a subject that is so incredibly sensitive. For me, at least. One thing before I go...That cover is absolutely one of the most beautiful I have seen this year. In longer than that actually. It is stunning!

  7. This sounds like a dystopian that will be good. The premise is certainly interesting.
