THE TIKTOK FANTASY SENSATION THAT'S SOLD OVER HALF A MILLION COPIES, PERFECT FOR FANS OF SARAH J. MAAS AND JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT 'Sexy and touching all at the same time . . . and that plot twist, OMG' 5***** Reader Review 'Read this series NOW! I felt like I was in the story watching and holding my breath the entire time' 5***** Reader Review _______ 'It's the arrogance of men to think so little of women. And it'll be their downfall too' This is the story of King Midas. Or that's what we're always told. The Golden King with his palace of riches and me, the girl he turned to gold. Upon the snowy mountains in the Sixth Kingdom of Orea, I'm locked away in Highbell Castle. It's for my safety, I'm told. Away from the dangers of the world below. No one can get in. Apart from him. King Midas rescued me from the streets. He gave me food, shelter, and his heart. I promised to love him forever. But when war comes to the kingdom, a deal is struck - and I am at the heart of the bargain. Everything starts to change. My love for Midas challenged, my trust broken. Because all that I knew about this man is wrong. Suddenly, I'm sent to travel between kingdoms to a future I no longer understand and my spirit becomes truly tested. I'm always told this is his tale. But perhaps that is no longer the case. Perhaps. . . it's mine. This is the story of Auren. _______ 'A spectacularly written, engaging, imaginative retelling of the ancient myth of King Midas' 5***** Reader Review 'I literally devoured this book in one sitting' 5***** Reader Review **Content warning: sexual violence**… (més)

this book had me so riveted. the sex scenes were raunchy but the storyline hooked me. an underdog and female lead a growing an intriguing storyline..I love/hated how Kennedy ended the books on a cliffhanger it forced me to read on to find out what the conclusion was. this book series distracted me in the pandemic and I'm impatiently waiting on the continuation which I did preorder.

I heard so many things about Gild that I was expecting a masterpiece. Sadly, it wasn't. Again, Booktok deceived me. ( )

Great start

First off, this cover is gorgeous. The book wax much different than I was expecting but it was still good. Great worlds building and setting that world to continue on with these characters. This isn't my normal subgenre but the author got me invested.

Looking forward to what happens next. ( )

This was good but not great. I think this was a good start to a series that left me intrigued but as a stand alone it has some room for improvement.

This book does deal with pretty dark themes but honestly, it wasn't as dark as I was expecting. This was probably because I've seen many reviews of this book at this point and a lot of people talked about how dark it was so I was setting myself to expect really bad stuff. I do think Kennedy does a good job presenting the darker themes in this book and showing both the reality of the situation as well as how the characters understand their situations.

I think this was the start of some interesting world-building but I do hope it's expanded in later books. I think the end of this book shows that we will be getting a lot more of this in the next books but I do wish we explored a bit more of that in this book so there would be more set-up going into book two. A lot was introduced at the very end and I am interested to see how it plays out in the next book.

Auren is an interesting character so far but I think we're going to learn more about her now that she's more separated from King Midas. I'm excited to learn more about her and her abilities in later books. The introduction we got to her was definitely enough to keep me interested. She was probably the part of the book that was most intriguing to me so I'm interested to see where that story goes.

The main reason I felt like I wanted to give this three stars was because there were times when I was kind of bored while reading. I understand needing to set up the characters and the world but a lot of this book didn't have too much plot happening and I just wanted a bit more action in this. Almost all of the action was in the last third of the book. I think this won't be a problem in the next book because we now have all the set up but I did find my mind wandering sometimes while reading this, which is a sign to me that I wasn't fully engaged with this story.

As I said, I'm excited to see where this story goes. I've seen several people say that they thought the second book was much better than the first so hopefully I will feel the same way! ( )

I really wanted to like this book, and it had a lot of promise. Unfortunately I just felt like not much happened before the book ended. The writing was decent, and I really liked the characters. But if I hadn't had the next book on hand when I finished the first I would have been upset since not a lot happened for a 300 page book. ( )
