    Striking out into the wasteland with nothing but her baby sister, a handful of supplies, and a rumor to guide her, sixteen-year-old midwife Gaia Stone survives only to be captured by the people of Sylum, a dystopian society where women rule the men who drastically outnumber them, and a kiss is a crime. In order to see her sister again, Gaia must submit to their strict social code, but how can she deny her sense of justice, her curiosity, and everything in her heart that makes her whole?

    Would you listen to Prized again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to Prized again because it was a great story with a great plot. I would probably read it because the narrator was HORRIBLE!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was HORRIBLE! I don't think I could say it enough. The reader read everything completely wrong even when it said differently in the book. She would read a confrontation calmly when the book stated ".....blah blah blah, they argued." The book says that she becomes a strong woman and the narrator makes her sound like a weak little girl who has no clue what she is doing and is terrified like a 4 year old. When she is being interrogated, the narrator makes it sound like she is pleading by saying I'm sorry like a little girl when the book has her being strong and confident. This chick should never narrate a book again in her life.


    Any additional comments?

    NEVER LET THE NARRATOR READ A BOOK AGAIN! SHE IS HORRIBLE!

    "Close your eyes, Ela of Parne. Close your eyes and you will see." Ela Roeh of Parne doesn't understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She’s undignified, bad tempered, and only 17 - not to mention that no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as the elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite's prophet, Ela knows she will die young. "Istgard has turned their back on Me. See the evil they do."

    What was most disappointing about R.J. Larson’s story?

    The narrator.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brooke Heldman?

    Rebecca Soler


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Confusion. I didn't know what was going on because the narrator made everyone's voice so whiny and annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't even concentrate on the book because I couldn't get past the narrator making everyone's voice sound so whiny. The first thing I thought was "What the heck is that?" I couldn't get past Chapter 2.

    In the future, in a world baked dry by the harsh sun, there are those who live inside the wall and those, like 16-year-old midwife, Gaia Stone, who live outside. Gaia has always believed it is her duty, with her mother, to hand over a small quota of babies to the Enclave. But when Gaia's mother and father are arrested by the very people they so dutifully serve, Gaia is forced to question everything she has been taught to believe. Gaia's choice is now simple: Enter the world of the Enclave to rescue her parents, or die trying.
