“I was nothing but a road to Midas. A means to get to where he wanted to go, and I paved that path in gold.”
My life has been made up of gilded lies. But death has been shaped from rot.
Like a phoenix caught fire, I will need to rise from the ashes and learn to wield my own power. Because my wings may have been clipped, but I am not in a cage, and I’m finally free to fly from the frozen kingdoms I’ve been kept in.
Yet the world doesn’t want to let me.
That’s the thing when you turn against a king—everyone else turns against you.
Good thing I have a different king in my corner.
But even with the dark threat of Slade Ravinger, the other monarchs are coming for me.
So I will fight for him and he will kill for me, and if we need to become the villains, then so be it.
Because so long as I live in this world, I won’t be used again.

“You are priceless. You are worth more than gold. And the world owes you so much more than what you’ve been given.”
Man oh man this installment was soooo goood. I’ll admit the beginning was a little slow. It took me a while to jump into it, kind of how it took Auren time to adjust as well. Maybe I was adjusting while she was? However, once the story gets going it’s impossible to put down.
Slade is something else. I am sure I professed my love for him in previous books… but he grows on me even more with this installment. I’ll take ten of him, kthanks because him and Auren together are everything.
I absolutely loved the ending even though it’s gut-wrenching in about three different ways. My heart was breaking, yet at the same time I am so excited to see where (literally) Raven Kennedy takes us in Gold.
