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, 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', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. 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 anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
