Gild (The Plated Prisoner Series Book 1)
About this deal
Despite the riches she lives in, she still feels a sense of sympathy and sadness towards the devastating reality of the world outside of Highbell. i read this thinking there'd be smut and there wasn't, which should be a summary enough of why i didn't like it.
If he lost the wings and looked more like a scaled orc with Bowser spikes," then you're going to love this book. So far, we know that the realm of Oria is divided into 6 kingdoms, each one ruled by a different king.In the ultimate 'F*** you' to patriarchal histories of old, it was a woman who bore the golden touch. I have burned down the court of King Midas and from those flames, I will rise and wield my own power. But when political upheaval sees me sent across kingdoms to a future I no longer understand, everything I thought I knew about King Midas is shattered.
At the beginning of the novel, Auren is incredibly in love with King Midas, who rescued her and now keeps her as his favourite, not sharing her with others, pampering her…. So it’s a fantasy series that has taken its inspiration from King Midas I’ll admit I’m only vaguely aware of the Greek tale just the main facts and that it’s an Aesop fable with a hidden message regarding greed and him turning everything to gold but i was intrigued. Despite the YA-looking cover, and its striking similarity in title and design to the Marissa Meyer book GILDED (which I keep mixing it up with), this is not a book for the kiddies. thank you so much for lending your time to be my buddy read🏻 can't wait to spend this whole series with you! It’s a fast-paced, quick read that is intriguing and addictive enough to make me want to read the second book right away!The goods do not need to be in their original packaging however in a sellable condition, and at your own cost and risk. What might seem like romanticizing toxic behavior, is an accurate representation of the mentality of a woman like Auren. little does Auren know that stepping out of her cage means she will see the world for what it truly is. I also struggled with the constant use of modern language by the MC, in what appears to be a mediaeval setting. Yes, the travel felt a little bit slow at times, but we got to know how Auren's real personality would be if she had a normal life outside her gilded cage.
