    The trouble with the first book in a trilogy rocking your world is that, as much as you anticipate the first opportunity you get to read its sequel, you simultaneously fear that it won t live up to how much you enjoyed the first Sadly, in PRIZED s case, this was true Whereas I couldn t put Birthmarked down, I struggled at times to push myself through PRIZED s copious use of info dumps and in

    Prized is a hard book to give a rating to that reflects its quality On the one hand there are a few things that are very well done, such as the idea of a matriarchal society truth is, I don t think there are any YA books that explore this idea and the gradual way Caragh M O Brien transforms Gaia from a headstrong leader into a submissive follower However, there are some things that prevent
