about

The Selection meets The Handmaid’s Tale in the epic sequel to the New York Times bestselling author Amy Ewing’s The Jewel.

Violet is on the run. She’s escaped the Duchess of the Lake, who bought her at auction, and the lifetime of servitude she was once resigned to.

But no matter how far Violet runs, she can’t avoid the rebellion brewing just beneath the Jewel’s glittering surface or the fact that she wants in on it. With Ash and a new ally by her side, Violet discovers her Auguries are more powerful than she could have ever imagined.

But is she strong enough to rise against the Jewel and everything she has ever known? And is she willing to risk the lives of everyone she cares about to find out?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK ** spoiler alert ** Did not enjoy this book as much as the 1st in the series. I'm glad that the powers go beyond growing children for the Royalty, and I guess none of the surrogates questioned why they were born with the powers in the first place (since their institutes were designed to rob them of identity and thought). I'm disappointed that some things are glossed over (surrogates living after labour) and that I've had to suspend A LOT of rational thought to believe the story in this 2nd in the series. Right now my fingers are crossed that this is only a trilogy and that the 3 book turns things around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I found this book to be a faster pace than the first one and much more interesting because it seemed to have more of a direction than the last book and answered a lot more questions. The ending was not quite as surprising as the first book though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enticing Series A great series with so many developed characters that never fail in making the reader feel exactly how Ewing wants! The setting is in a unique world too with a great concept, I would recommended

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing Unique About It Just as boring as the first book. Feels like too many other dystopian books. I can't say I'll be finishing the series but you never know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GREAT Novel I read this book a few months ago and I'm so glad I did! Even though this is the second book of the Jewel Series, it doesn't have the slightest hint of second-book-syndrome. It is a thrilling read as Violet escapes the Jewel along with her best friend Raven and her true love, Ash. It's dangerous, exciting, and illegal. This is the perfect book to read when in despair, or whenever you want so excitement in your life! Read The White Rose to find out what becomes of Violet's life and the rest of the island's as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection So very good. Such a nice continuation of The Jewel. It didn't fall flat like most sequels do when they are second in the series. Quite happy with this one. Can't wait to see how it all ends in "The Black Key".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really enjoyed this I found both books 1 & 2 are really building things up. I love the depth of this story because at first it's all about how she's going to escape being a surrogate and now it's evolved into how is she going to save the whole island? I'm really enjoying these books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really enjoyed this Both book 1 and 2 just keep building and building so I'm really hoping book 3 has a lot of excitement. I really love the depth of these stories and how it went from just worrying about her getting out of the surrogate life to her now trying to save the whole island, I'm really enjoying reading these.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The second book curse Another book plagued with the curse of being a second book in a trilogy. After reading The Jewel, I remember writing down the author and keeping track when the next book in this trilogy would be published. I don't always do this but I will if I have enjoyed a book like I did with The Jewel. The White Rose. Talk about a disappointment. I can't even say it was "terrible" because it wasn't, I didn't even feel any emotion towards it. It was average and not exciting. The romance? Bleh. Adventure? Not really. The only excitement and anticipation that I felt while reading was on the very last page (you'll know why if you've read the book) and that was the best part of the whole book. That irritates me because now I feel like I need to read the concluding novel just so I have some sort of closure. To be honest, the majority of this book was spent hoping it would be over so I could move on to something else. I never stop reading a book halfway through but if I was that kind of person, this book would have been left unfinished. On the fence whether to read the final novel in this trilogy, closure to the series may not even be worth it.
