The second book in Caragh M. O’Brien’s Birthmarked trilogy, Prized was pretty good. Standard dystopian fare, once again, with a female as the lead character.
The second book in Caragh M. I am seeing an increasing amount of dystopian literature that revolves around exploitation of young females. Sometimes her innocence is as shocking as her world-weariness. But her innate, magnet-like draw to pregnant women and babies is her true core, and I'm glad to see it explored in more depth and layers in this book. O'Brien explores the depth of issues in the complicated web that is womanhood and motherhood, without it feeling like a treatise or lecture.

Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien was probably the first series that I picked up after the hype of the Hunger Games. I'm glad I did! Birthmarked is about Gaia, a terrific female protagonist, who has a burn scar on her face, and thus, has been "unwanted" by the Enclave that she serves. I also love all the puzzles that are in the book, and how Gaia figures them out. Lastly, I think it's interesting how her burn serves as both protection and as a mark of shame at the same time. Overall, interesting characters, exciting plot, and O'Brien has marked herself as an author to watch. 7 people found this helpful.
