Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where I highlight an upcoming release I'm excited about.

This week I'm waiting on…
The Jewel (The Lone City #1)
By Amy Ewing
Published by HarperTeen
Release Date: September 2, 2014

The Jewel means wealth. The Jewel means beauty. The Jewel means royalty. But for girls like Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Not just any kind of servitude. Violet, born and raised in the Marsh, has been trained as a surrogate for the royalty—because in the Jewel the only thing more important than opulence is offspring.

Purchased at the surrogacy auction by the Duchess of the Lake and greeted with a slap to the face, Violet (now known only as #197) quickly learns of the brutal truths that lie beneath the Jewel’s glittering facade: the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life.

Violet must accept the ugly realities of her existence... and try to stay alive. But then a forbidden romance erupts between Violet and a handsome gentleman hired as a companion to the Duchess’s petulant niece. Though his presence makes life in the Jewel a bit brighter, the consequences of their illicit relationship will cost them both more than they bargained for.

This could be really excellent and interesting, though I've been fooled by pretty covers before. Sounds like an awesome romance with a dystopian setting.

I agree with what you said about pretty covers! But somehow I keep getting tricked, haha. This one sounds interesting, though! I'll have to keep my eye out for it.

Here's my WoW.
