In The Jewel, we followed Violet in her servitude under the Duchess of the Lake. Now we’ll hear Raven’s story and her time as a surrogate for the Countess of the Stone in this digital novella from Amy Ewing.

When Raven is bought at the Auction, she knows immediately that things will not go well. And when she arrives at the Countess’s palace, Raven quickly discovers that the Countess is much less interested in having a baby than experimenting with Raven’s mind and body. Raven can only hope for an escape…and to see Violet again, all the while reminding herself that she is Raven Stirling, and she does matter.

Raven Stirling has been one of the most beautiful and talented of all the girls in the auction. As Lot 191, she is expected to have superb abilities a Surrogate should have in conceiving a child.

Until, the Countess of the Stone had her.

It wasn’t a child she wanted but a guinea pig who would serve as her test animal for all the crazy experiments she has. And Raven wasn’t the only one.

With every torture that the Countess inflicts, Raven, who hungers for her freedom, must find a way to get out. Will she find her way before everything destroys her?

  • The book is written in Raven’s perspective. As the protagonist in this novella, we have given a glimpse of what Raven, Violet’s best friend is going through. From the beginning of her stay in the Countess’ residence to all the various experiments and brutality she faces.

All in all, this novella has been a great fast read and an interesting companion in the series. For the readers who cannot get enough of The Lone City Trilogy, this is a perfect read for you.

Till my next blog post everyone! (smiles)
