Product description

The Selection meets The Handmaid’s Tale. Read this and feel lucky. Today is Violet’s last day of her own life. Tomorrow she becomes Lot 197: the richest slave on Earth. She’ll be auctioned to the highest royal bidder in the Jewel of the Lone City. Her sole purpose: to produce a healthy heir for the Duchess. Think living in a palace would be lovely? This one’s nothing but a gilded cage. A place where slaves live like pampered lapdogs (except for being forced to give birth, of course). In the beautiful and brutal House of the Lake, Violet must carry the child of a woman she despises. Until she sets eyes on Ash Lockwood. Has her handsome prince finally arrived?

  • Chilling and unusual dystopian fantasy from a hot new talent
  • Set in a world where slaves are surrogate mothers for the elite
  • The splendour and beauty of The Selection, with a darker edge
  • “Truly unique. Horrifying and gripping all at once” – Company

This book contains mature content more suitable for older readers.
