In this bold and immersive fantasy, a young heroine fights to save a world that would dare tame her and discovers she is her own fiercest weapon.

The Gilded Ones is a young adult fantasy novel. It is the first book in the Deathless series and was published early February 2021 by Usborne Publishing. It spans 416 pages and is Namina Forna’s debut novel.

I was so excited to read this book. The cover is stunning and the short synopsis on the back caught my attention. It has a lot of punch. Upon reading it I soon realised that this book was a very special one. I couldn’t put it down. The story was so unique, the plot and its twists so strong and elegant. And the characters I just fell in love with. By half way through the book I knew that this book was going to be my new favourite.

I don’t want to include any spoilers, but this book has something for everyone. Friendships that win through war and betrayals. Love that knows no bounds. Acceptance, action and so much more. It keeps you on the edge of your seat, unbelievably gripping and assured to take your breath away!

I would 10000% recommend this book and I cannot wait for book 2 to come out next year. I am already counting down the days!
