I absolutely love Cassandra Clare's books. I think we all have been dying to know what happens next and she graced us with the knowledge of where characters past are now and connects them intricately into the lives of the younger Shadow Hunters. I can't wait until the next book!!!

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.
Inner Beauty above Outter Beauty

I was pleasantly surprised!
What did you love best about Birthmarked?
This was an extremely creative read. The main character was pretty childish though she was practically a child anyway. She makes a lot of decisions that other people pay the price for and she does as well. Though she makes theses decisions based on her beliefs of what is right and wrong and no one can changer her mind.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Gaia is the main character...I love how she knows who she is. She won't change for anyone!
Have you listened to any of Carla Mercer-Meyer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I listened to the entire Birthmarked series and they were equally great.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes...my husband as well.
Any additional comments?
Check it out!
