“But what about Leon?”
Now, in this new story that bridges the gap between Birthmarked and Prized, Caragh M. O’Brien answers her readers’ most common question with a tale of suffering and determination from Leon’s perspective. Be warned. The story is a spoiler for the first book in the award-winning trilogy.

You can find my review of Birthmarked here
Caragh M. O'Brien has written an additional eBook for readers wondering what happened between Birthmarked and Prized. Tortured is a free eBook which provides readers with a little insight into the world of Leon after Gaia escapes the Enclave and leaves for the Wasteland.
Short and to the point, Tortured follows Leon's struggle in the Enclave. Gaia has left the Enclave in a tizzy- they are searching for her, the baby, and the records. Now, Tortured gives readers a glimpse into what happens after she leaves.
O'Brien dubbed this a "bridge story" story between Birthmarked and Prized. It is also being called "Birthmarked #1.5" in the trilogy. It is both of these things- it connects the dots for us after Birthmarked and leads nicely into Prized. It isn't a long book, and I can say that I was looking for a bit more. Tortured gave me answers but still left me wanting more. It brought up new questions which I hope will be answered in Prized.
