In Caragh M. O'Brien's Prized, 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, sixteen-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?

Review quote

"This series practically begs to be a book club selection." --"VOYA"

"Fans of Kristin Cashore's Graceling books should know about O'Brien's writing: these are smart, tough romances." --"Booklist"

"Much like "Birthmarked", Caragh again creates a vivid dystopian world that was so easy to imagine as the story goes on." --Mundie Moms blog

""Prized" was an intriguing read that I didn't want to put down. Most of the characters are absolutely lovely, and the plot is one to get you hooked! I am eagerly anticipating the last book in the trilogy, I am very curious to see where Caragh M. O'Brien will take readers after the unpredictable twist "Prized" ends with." --The Book Cellar

"Readers who loved "Birthmarked" by Caragh M. O'Brien will definitely not want to miss out on its sequel, "Prized", nor will fans of "Shift" by Charlotte Agell, "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins, "Delirium" by Lauren Oliver, and "Dark Parties" by Sara Grant." --The Book Muncher
