My review for Prized:
I give Prized 4.5 stars. As I was hoping, the book was a lot faster than Birtmarked and it was more enjoyable to read.
So the poitical prisoner held at the Bastion is Gaia’s mother and Gaia has no clue her mother was expecting. Gaia’s mother dies from giving birth to Gaia’s baby sister, Maya, so Gaia takes Maya and goes out in the wilderness after grabbing the birth records that can answer many questions. Gaia is able to get out of Wharfton and the Enclave with the help of Leon, but he has to stay back. She is found by a man with a horse a month later and her is on the verge of death. The man takes her to a place called Sylum where the women rule and believe it is their duty to bare as many children as possible because there are so many men and the women population is dwindling. Gaia’s grandmother was the previous Matrarc, but apparently she went crazy. Gaia becomes curious. Why is the there so many males and that many females? Can it be fixed? Once someone gets acclimation sickness, you die after you leave Sylum for a little bit of time. What causes this too? Gaia tries to make the Matrarc to think about changing ways, but the Matrarc won’t listen? Gaia hears that Leon is also in the Sylum, but as a prisoner. How far will she go to try and get Leon out of prison and get the Matrarc to change things?
