Review: Gild by Raven Kennedy

Title: Gild

Series: Plated Prisoner #1

Author: Raven Kennedy

The fae abandoned this world to us. And the ones with power rule.


Gold floors, gold walls, gold furniture, gold clothes. In Highbell, in the castle built into the frozen mountains, everything is made of gold.

Even me.

King Midas rescued me. Dug me out of the slums and placed me on a pedestal. I’m called his precious. His favored. I’m the woman he Gold-Touched to show everyone that I belong to him. To show how powerful he is. He gave me protection, and I gave him my heart. And even though I don’t leave the confines of the palace, I’m safe.

Until war comes to the kingdom and a deal is struck.

Suddenly, my trust is broken. My love is challenged. And I realize that everything I thought I knew about Midas might be wrong.

Because these bars I’m kept in, no matter how gilded, are still just a cage. But the monsters on the other side might make me wish I’d never left.

‘Does it really matter if your cage is solid gold when you aren’t allowed to leave it? A cage is a cage, no matter how gilded.’

Auren is the Kings favoured, they go back years but now he keeps her like a pet. King Midas has turned Auren into living gold. I did like Midas although I wasn’t sure why!!!!

On a journey to another Kingdom, Auren wonders if she should’ve stayed at home in her cage…….

The world building was great, the plot was ok but a little on the slow side for me but I really loved Auren. She’s funny, brave and resilient.

Also…..Commander Rip ….now he sounds like a man I’d want to meet!

I really was not expecting that ending though so I need that next book!
