Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien

I loved the cover of Birthmarked as soon as I saw it - and in this case - you can judge a book by its cover!    

Gaia lives in a future world scarred by the climate changes caused by the previous peoples. A world where your future is decided by whether you live inside the walls of the enclave or outside it. Those on the inside lead a life of privilege and ease. Outside is poverty, sacrifice and hard-work.

Gaia lives on the outside. And one night she comes home from her work as a midwife to find that her parents have been taken away.

Gaia sets out to unravel the mystery of their disappearance. A journey that becomes more dangerous as she delves into things that  the people in power want to keep secret - at any cost. And of course there is the obligatory love interest just to keep things sweet!


I couldn't put this book down. Imagine my delight when I recently discovered that book 2 'Prized' is due out November 2011 and that O'Brien plans to write a third (check out the web link below).

If you loved 'Hunger Games', then you should enjoy this one too.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment (esp on mobile devices), otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) & third party cookies, check their script filters in their browser and on their computer.Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All spammer comments will be deleted and reported.
