My name is Savannah and I’m the founder Books With Bite. Books have always found a way to my heart with great literature and adventure. Though I may not be a teen, I wish I could be!
This is another book that I devoured in one sitting because it has such an interesting premise/storyline, I literally fell in the story.
Plot: This is about a world that takes girls when they are young and grooms them to be surrogate. They must have children for the rich and serve them. I think the idea of just doing that is not only catchy but interesting. I wanted to know what kind of lives that they lead but also what is the drama behind it all. The Jewel call it a privilege but when people are doing that to young women, there is much more to the story. And you know what, I was right. The plot moved at a good pace keeping the reader entertained with the way that the girls are raised, auction off and life in the jewel.
The Jewel: Once the author took me into the Jewel life is not what it seems. The royalty treat their surrogates horribly but well. The give them what they want (big fancy rooms, food, clothes, etc) yet if they put one foot out of line, BAM, punishment. I’m not sure if I’m wording this correctly but the vibe that I got off these royalty really felt wrong. But the jewel is as suspected filled with hypocrisy as well as drama. Much goes own within the royalty that they should have their own tv show called Real Housewives of The Jewel. These royalty do dark and dangerous things to get their way…even kill.
Ending: I think the corruption within the Jewel and the surrogates wanting their freedom, leads to a very good ending. Every chapter has a nice build up to a very dramatic ending that makes me want more. I can’t wait to read the next book and see the development of the surrogates/royalty.
A successful start in a trilogy, I look forward to read more of The Jewel. With plenty of surprise twists and great development of characters, The Jewel is favorable.
