The compelling and gripping sequel to Amy Ewing's debut, The Jewel, which BCCB said "[w]ill have fans of Oliver's Delirium, Cass' The Selection, and DeStefano's Wither breathless".
Violet is on the run - away from the Jewel, away from a lifetime of servitude, away from the Duchess of the Lake, who bought her at auction. With Ash and Raven traveling with her, Violet will need all of her powers to get her friends and herself out of the Jewel alive.
But no matter how far Violet runs, she can't escape the rebellion brewing just beneath the Jewel's glittering surface and her role in it. Violet must decide if she is strong enough to rise against the Jewel and everything she has ever known.

This book was very well written and the narration was excellent. It was ever bit as good as the first book. I can't wait until book 3 comes out.
This book is cross between the Hunger Games and The Selection. Plot tension was high. I rooted for characters.
Nice YA read with interesting plot twist. Highly recommend this series. It also has nice fantasy / scifi elements.
that was such a great story! I was hesitant to read it because I did not feel that the jewel was very good but this one was excellent exclamation point the ending of the book made my jaw drop because I wanted the story to go on :-) I would definitely recommend this book
this was really a nice read. it complimented thr first book well. I just cant wait to see how she explains some of thr madness that happens. This book has it all - love, drama, action, girl power- rebellion and more. I enjoyed the ride and am eagerly awaiting the next book.
