I got this book because "they" said, "for fans of The Selection."
While The Jewel is a page turner like The Selection, it has a much darker plot.
Surrogates ripped from their families and sold to Royals to carry on the bloodlines. Royal houses plotting against one another for status putting surrogates in the direct line of fire. Forced pregnancies and forced service that is appalling.
I for one can't wait to see this hierarchy tumble! Since this first book left EVERYTHING up in the air, I can only hope that a new world order is exactly what will happen!
Great page turner!!!!
