The Jewel Boek omslag The Jewel
Amy Ewing
“I love sunrises, even more than sunsets. There's something so exciting about the worlds coming to life in a thousand colors.”
“It is frighteningly bizarre to hear myself described this way; a set of statistics, a musical instrument, and nothing more.” “I feel myself dissolve into a thousand molecules, amazed at how three small words can completely alter my state of being.”
Dit. Boek. Is. Geweldig. Maar. Echt. <3. De schrijfstijl, het verhaal, de manier waarop je de wereld ingezogen wordt. Amy sleurt je mee en je wilt stiekem alleen maar meer!

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.
