Today I'm going to review Gilded by Chistina Farley. You can get it here:
I jumped right into this book, and loved it at first. The characters are strong, and Jae's character arc is strong and believable.
I must admit, when I hit the gods and demi-gods, I nearly threw the book out the window. Especially when Haemonu turned on the charm and Jae wanted to go with him. When I got to that point, I thought the book was going to turn into a useless erotic romance between Jae and a demi-god.
It didn't. It was handled beautifully. I usually don't enjoy the gods and demi-gods, thing, but I managed to enjoy this.
And ... Maybe it's just because I'm a Christian, but I was able to find some allegorical elements in it. And I loved the end, that I will not detail because of spoilers.
So. Final thought. If you like adventure books, and don't mind magic and mysticism, then try this book. It's awesome.
