Gild (The Plated Prisoner Series Book 1) (English Edition) Format Kindle
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.
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.
The myth of King Midas reimagined. This compelling adult fantasy series is as addictive as it is unexpected. With romance, intrigue, and danger, the gilded world of Orea will grip you from the very first page.
Please Note: This book contains explicit content and darker elements, including mature language, violence, and non-consensual sex. It is not intended for anyone under 18 years of age. This is book one in a series.

Est ce que c’était parfait ? Non, mais je suis littéralement passé au dessus des défauts du livre.
Le style d’écriture m’a plu, c’était un vrai page turner, j’ai été plusieurs fois surprises par la direction que prenait l’histoire. J’ai aussi beaucoup aimé l’ambiance à la Game Of Thrones.
Et j’ai été carrément frustrée de la fin, je veux la suite maintenant, et des réponses à mes questions. Car à la fin du livre, on sait en fait peu de choses sur l’univers, j’ai donc tellement hâte d’en savoir plus.
Au niveau des personnages, c’est pareil. On ne sait pas grand choses sur eux. Je pense que l’auteure veut nous faire languir, pour apporter les révélations plus tard. Du coup, en attendant on comprend pas forcément certains comportements ou réactions. Mais je suis à fond dans le suspens.
Au final, le plus dérangeant pour moi ça été la mise en place de l’intrigue qui a été un peu longue. Et ce sentiment que le roman ce finit trop tôt.
Le niveau d’anglais est tout à fait abordable. En revanche je vous conseille de bien vous renseigner et de lire les TW avant de vous lancer.
A very original story where the author takes the time to introduce us to an extraordinary fantasy universe ... we do not see anything coming, the story takes us by surprise, the characters are all incredible .. This first volume build the story, the romance not started, the writing is amazing.. I can't wait to see where the author will take us... Must read !
It's the 💏story between 👑Midas and his favourite saddle/favorite 💃 Auren. It is sexy 🔥🔥and touching🥰 all at the same time... and that plot twist😈😱, OMG...
From the opening chapter, Raven makes a bold and so exquisite statement as to what type of story to expect and it all gets better and better through the book. I recommend this book to whoever is looking for a romance with a nice plot and written with solid mastery of storytelling. Also, if you like the juicy details, this book is for you 🔥😈
Reading this story has started an unexpected reaction here at home which is me painting a lot of items in gold 😂. This is my second book by Raven and it sure puts her on my One-click list of authors.

We have Auren who has been kept in a cage as King Midas' prisoner for ten years and is being seriously mentally and emotionally tortured. She now has a horrific case of Stockholm Syndrome and it's painful to read her adoration of Midas even as he abuses her and whores her out for his own gain. I made it to 30% through the book and then couldn't take any more crude language and nasty, vicious behaviour - I was starting to feel queasy. I flicked through the rest of the book to see if it improved but every page I landed on was a torrent of physical and sexual violence against women.
I've given it 3 stars because, if you like this kind of thing, then it's well written. But for me the story was far too violent and degrading.
However, for all my indie authors out there, don't have an amazing cover with nothing substantial to back it up because Gild is terrible. It's worse than terrible, it's boring.
I skimmed through most of it because nothing much was happening and the main character committed the worst book crime imaginable and was completely uninteresting. I felt no connection to her and spent the majority of the book hating every stupid thing that came out of her mouth. There's naivety and then theres just plain stupidity and Auren is definitely the latter.
Auren is the 'favoured' of King Midas. He turned her gold - for reasons unknown - and keeps her caged up in his golden palace to apparently just watch him indulge himself in carnal exploits. There's some reference to them having a relationship prior to her being gold which i guess is meant to explain why she doesnt realise and/or care that this is an abusive relationship. No, she simply wants to be one of his coveted 'saddles - the word for whores apparently - and join in the rest of the sordid fun because she loooves him! She also randomly has ribbons coming out of her back. Like 24 long apparently silk like sentient like ribbons that just grow out of her back. For what purpose I have no idea because they do nothing when it matters other than elude to the fact that she's clearly something 'special'. Booo!
For reasons i wont bother sharing, Auren gets to leave the palace and what follows is a pointlessly drawn out journey of her making stupid decisions, getting her acquaintances killed and raped and revealing powers that i couldnt work out why she hadnt used up til now to protect herself or her companions. Not that she would need protecting since NOTHING EVER HAPPENS TO HER. She has Main Character Protection in that everyone else gets hurt because of her actions but she is miraculously saved from torture, rape, abuse etc. even though she is literally walking treasure. Why has noone cut off her finger yet?
Anyway, throw in some random pirate, drop in a long thought dead Fae race, elude to the fact that she is something that its clear she is already by this point and youve got yourself a train wreck of a book that i literally rolled my eyes at at every swipe of the kindle page.
I always want people to try books regardless of reviews to form their own opinions but this just isnt worth it. Great marketing, great cover but this is one hundred per cent disappointment in all other aspects. When she referred to one of the pirate's hat as 'a pirate hat' instead of a 'tricorn' I knew this needed to be in the bin.
For me, the best part of this series how little we know. From the half way point, I genuinely couldn't have called where the book was going to go. I definitely didn't expect the introduction of the two factions in the last third of the book. I'm so excited to see where this series is going! The reimagining of the tale of Kind Midas is written so well and I'm fascinated by Auren and Midas' past. I really hope we get to find out how he got his powers and how he became king.
I'm very excited for book 2 of this series, I can tell it's going to be a favourite of mine!
This book is essentially an awful lot of world building. It's interesting and I liked getting to know the world and the people, but it felt like the story only ~really~ got going in the last chapter. I will pick up the next one when it's published because I want to know where its going now, but I hope its got a bit more pace about it.
Now 3 books into the series, and the pace did indeed pick up. All of things that other readers object to in this first book begin to make sense, and the character progression of the fmc is a joy to witness. There is still some grim moments to come, but there's also a steadily growing thread of hope.
So glad I kept reading beyond the first book.
