"With its taut, provocative plot and irresistible characters, The Jewel had me tearing through pages right up to the final, startling twist. I need the next book now!" (Andrea Cremer, praise for The Jewel)
"Excellent world building skillful descriptions." (Booklist, praise for The Jewel)
The more I read the book the more it felt like the diary of a radicalised extremist (with magic powers).
The main character is groomed and hardened by circumstances and by Lucian. She becomes alright with violent bombings and murder. She sets about converting others to her cause.
And then there was that very Martyr-like beheading.
Hmm. Unsettling ....
