Series: Plated Prisoner #2
Author: Raven Kennedy
“You want to make your life easier? Then be the caged bird that you are and sing.”
For ten years, I’ve lived in a gilded cage inside King Midas’s golden castle. But one night changed everything.
Now I’m here, a prisoner of Fourth Kingdom’s army, and I’m not sure if I’m going to make it out of this in one piece. They’re marching to battle, and I’m the bargaining chip that will either douse the fire or spark a war.
At the heart of my fear, my worry, there’s him—Commander Rip.
Known for his brutality on the battlefield, his viciousness is unsurpassed. But I know the truth about what he is.
The betrayers. The murderers. The ones who nearly destroyed Orea, wiping out Seventh Kingdom in the process. Rip has power sizzling beneath this skin and glinting spikes down his spine. But his eyes—his eyes are the most compelling of all.
When he turns those black eyes on me, I feel captive for an entirely different reason.
I may be out of my cage, but I’m not free, not even close. In the game of kings and armies, I’m the gilded pawn. The question is, can I out maneuver them?
‘Sometimes, things need first to be ruined in order to then be remade.’
To say I inhaled this book is an understatement. I read it in something like 3 hours. Devoured. Couldn’t get enough!
It wasn’t just good it was fan.flamin.tastic!
So anyway!!!! Auren is captured along with the other saddles and soldiers by the pirate Reds and then bought by Commander Rip and they make their way to where Midas is now to bargain with (and a bit of war thrown in!)
We are introduced to the Wrath. To more of Rip. To more of Auren. To Rot. I’m not saying anymore!
Those bombshells at the end. Jaw drop. There’s no way I’m not moving onto that next book immediately! I’m so invested in this story!
