Book review The Jewel by Amy Ewing

Book : The Jewel

Author: Amy Ewing

Rating: ★★☆☆

Pages: 358

Goodreads Synopsis: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.


This book seemed interesthing at first and the more I got in to it,  the more frustration hit me like a bom.

first of all I didn't really liked that world at all. The time set it was in reminded me of attack on titan. all these walls and being divided in social status makes me feel ugh. 

the way all these girl are being treated is horrible. I must say that the idea was a bit creative but at the same time it scared the *** out of me.

the whole idea of surrogates is maybe a bit to overwhelming for me. and then there is this thing with her falling in love. it was underdeveloped and so sudden that it didn't make any sense at all.

however I did enjoy this book even though it reminded me of wither and attack on titan. I'll read the sequel because I really want to answers. i hope the sequel contain those answers I'm looking for.

and for those who do not know what attack on titan is, it is an anime serie with a horror factor.

check this book out on goodreads
