"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights an upcoming release that I'm eagerly awaiting. This week I can't wait for Prized: Birthmarked Book 2 by Caragh M. O'Brien.
When I read the first book Birthmarked, I fell in love with the wonderful and intriguing dystopian story. I hope that Prized will live up to the first book and judging by the summary, it sounds like it will! The cover is so gorgeous and comes out this fall on November 8, 2011. The cover and summary below are from Goodreads:
In the thrilling follow up to Birthmarked, sixteen-year-old midwife Gaia Stone has fled from the Enclave and now must fight for her baby sister’s survival in the matriarchal society of Sylum.
Striking out into the wasteland with nothing but her baby sister, a handful of supplies, and a rumor to guide her, 16-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?
