The Selection meets The Handmaid’s Tale in
this darkly riveting debut filled with twists and turns, where all that
glitters may not be gold.
The Jewel means wealth, the Jewel means beauty—but for
Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Born and raised in the Marsh, Violet finds
herself living in the Jewel as a servant at the estate of the Duchess of the
Lake. Addressed only by her number—#197—Violet is quickly thrown into the royal
way of life. But behind its opulent and glittering façade, the Jewel hides its
cruel and brutal truth, filled with violence, manipulation, and death.
Violet must accept the ugly realities of her life … all
while trying to stay alive. But before she can accept her fate, Violet meets a
handsome boy who is also under the Duchess’ control, and a forbidden love
erupts. But their illicit affair has consequences, which will cost them both
more than they bargained for. And toeing the line between being calculating and
rebellious, Violet must decide what, and who, she is willing to risk for her
own freedom. Download and start listening now!
