The Selection meets The Handmaid’s Tale in the epic sequel to the New York Times bestselling author Amy Ewing’s The Jewel.

Violet is on the run. She’s escaped the Duchess of the Lake, who bought her at auction, and the lifetime of servitude she was once resigned to.

But no matter how far Violet runs, she can’t avoid the rebellion brewing just beneath the Jewel’s glittering surface or the fact that she wants in on it. With Ash and a new ally by her side, Violet discovers her Auguries are more powerful than she could have ever imagined.

But is she strong enough to rise against the Jewel and everything she has ever known? And is she willing to risk the lives of everyone she cares about to find out?

This is a perfect sequel to the first instalment. It picks up right where the 1st ended and takes off immediately with the complex storyline. Truly a page turner with all its twist and gut wrenching moments. Unanswered questions are answered and new key elements are brought to light. If you loved the first installment you'll love the second hands down. Make sure you give yourself a block of time to read cause you'll be pissed when you have to put it down. I can not wait for the third installment

I seriously think that i have read this book almost fifty times and i know every chapter by heart yet i am still on the edge of my seat when i read it and i am breathless. It is such a good book and i love the characters and the plot. There needs to be a freaking movie triology like the hunger games. I would pay to see the Jewel up on the silver screen. I'm imagining Vika Levina as Violet and someone else that looks exactly like Raven is depicted. Im dying because it's just so good.

This is the second in The Lone City series. In this one Violet is on the run. Violet was caught with Ash, which is a big no-no. Both face death as punishment. As they escape, they rescue Violet's friend, Raven. Along the way Violet learns more of how to control her auguries and becomes more powerful as she can control them better. She becomes involved with people who are not happy with how the city is run, very few have all the power and resources while the rest live in poverty and are forced into basically slavery. I enjoyed this one. I liked reading more about these auguries, in the first book they seemed almost mysterious and a side-note. In this one Violet gets to get more into those. I liked reading more about Raven and more about Ash's past. Where Ash came from and why he feels so broken having been basically forced into a slavery. I read other reviews and it seems like people either really liked this one or were disappointed and said it suffered the second-book syndrome. I thought it was a good book, just like the first one. I'm looking forward to reading the next one in the series.

Original Review: I just honestly do not know if this series is for me. I wasn't very impressed with the first book, The Jewel, and was really hoping that the series would pick up for me. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. I don't know what I was expecting, maybe for more character growth or a faster moving plot line, but the book didn't really work for me. I am in no way saying that this book is bad, but it just wasn't great either, I would say it is a mediocre book at best. I think the biggest issue for me comes down to the characters. After two books, I am still not invested in the characters, Violet grew on me some, but by no means do I find her to be a particularly good or unique main character. In fact, I still find her character to be quite dull. As much as I try, I am just not invested in her or her story. Then there is her love interest Ash, of all the characters I like him least. I just find his character whiny and annoying. There is something about the instant love and his personality that make this romance rub me the wrong way. I would have much preferred if she had had someone like Garnet as a love interest. In fact, Garnet is one of the only characters in the book I liked. As for the plot, I wouldn't say that it was bad, it just lack-luster. Based on the way that the first book ended I was really hoping for a fast-paced adventure, but I didn't get that. Instead, it was a lot of travel, backstory, and set up for the future fighting. These qualities do not necessarily create a bad novel, but it just didn't meet my expectations. I really wanted a plot that would blow me away and would really get me into the series. I wanted action and revolution, instead, I got a lot of planning and build up. This book was not a hit for me, but it was not a complete miss either. I didn't find myself bored or ready to put the book down, but I was never engrossed in it either. To be frank, this is the second book in the series and I am still not loving the story. I don't know if I will continue on to the last book or if I will DNF the series. I still have some hope that the last book will have the action I am craving, so maybe at some point, I will read it.

This book picks up right where The Jewel left off, and it doesn't stop. There are new and interesting characters and unexpected moments. It still has that "The Selection" feel to me, but the story is definitely it's own. The ending leaves me worried for one of the characters. I'm really enjoying this story, and I can't wait for the next book!

Karen at For What It's Worth and Mary at The Book Swarm occasionally post twitter-style reviews. Karen calls hers Short and Tweet, and I am going to borrow that review style here. My short and tweet (longer) review: I am glad that I continued with this series, and will read the next one as well. I liked the romance more in this one, and I liked the character development, not only of main character but side characters as well. Some characters and plot twists surprised me, but still enjoy the ones that I saw coming. I like the strength and power that has developed in Violet, and the ways that she sees she can help, and love the continuance of her seeing through other people.
