The Lone City Trilogy by Amy Ewing

The Handmaid’s Tale meets The Hunger Games!

One thing I love about my iPad and iBooks is the weekly freebie offering I can find there, this is how 2/3 weeks ago I got The Jewel by Amy Ewing as part of the free book of the week.  It sat there for a few days until I picked it up to read and could not put it down! It was so so good then I went ahead and bought the second book in the series The White Rose.

I really don’t want to give it away, but if you have read the Handmade’s Tale or even seen the movie in passing, then you know what I am talking about.  It will come to no surprise that in the midst of upcoming revolution plotting, we have a love story a bit of magic/super powers and some cool characters.  I realise the post title mentions a trilogy, but the third book is not out yet!  I like everyone else is waiting for it.

However, as I discovered on goodreads, there is a prequel and a novella also available. I have not yet read them so I cannot comment, but I have no doubt that they would be quite good.

It is a quick read and goes on at a good pace.  So give it a go, I am not sure if the first book is still available for free on iBooks but I say go for it, you will not be disappointed.
