Review – Glint by: Raven Kennedy

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?

Please note: There is explicit language and romance in this book, not suitable for those under the age of 18.

“There it is, Goldfinch,’ he purrs, and that dark caress is back in his voice. ‘You’ve finally found your fight'”

HELL, that was freaken fantastic. With Glint, the beginning starts off so dark and desperate like the first book, however as we move into seeing more of the “fourth kingdom” I was loving every biting moment.

I absolutely adored commander Rip and his trio of companions. The fourth’s army was so fun to read about. There was humor, heartbreak, angst, and so much more. It was such a mix of everything you’re looking for in a great story.

With our MC, I love that Auren really starts to grow strength-wise in this installment. I am SO excited to see where we are taken in Gleam in regards to her and our new slew of characters.

The ending had me so tied up in knots. I kept having inklings of the twist, but then kept shooting it down. Phew but was it deliciously good. I cannot wait for book three!
