Gild - Plated Prisoner (Paperback)Raven Kennedy (author)
The first instalment of Raven Kennedy's sensational and sexy dark fantasy series introduces Auren, a poor girl turned to gold as the plaything of King Midas and forced into a dangerous and demeaning position as a bargaining chip during wartime.
It's the arrogance of men to think so little of women. And it'll be their downfall too.
This is the story of King Midas. Or that's what we're always told. The Golden King with his palace of riches and me, the girl he turned to gold. Upon the snowy mountains in the Sixth Kingdom of Orea, I'm locked away in Highbell Castle. It's for my safety, I'm told. Away from the dangers of the world below. No one can get in. Apart from him.
King Midas rescued me from the streets. He gave me food, shelter, and his heart. I promised to love him forever. But when war comes to the kingdom, a deal is struck - and I am at the heart of the bargain.
Everything starts to change. My love for Midas challenged, my trust broken. Because all that I knew about this man is wrong. Suddenly, I'm sent to travel between kingdoms to a future I no longer understand and my spirit becomes truly tested.
I'm always told this is his tale. But perhaps that is no longer the case. Perhaps... it's mine. This is the story of Auren.

Praise for The Plated Prisoner Series:
'This series has stolen my heart, my breath, my regard for anything else. I've never been so immersed in a story before-never read characters that have felt so real. I've cried, laughed, screamed, thrown my kindle across the room, picked it up again, swooned... these characters, this WORLD... it's everything. Raven has written a story for the ages, destined to go down as one of the epics' - Sarah A Parker, author of To Bleed a Crystal Bloom
'Raven writes with a magic that comes to life on the page. Every single word gleams like gold' - Beck Michaels, author of Divine Blood
'This is one of those series that started off phenomenal, and only gets better with every subsequent book' - Laura Thalassa, author of The Bargainer Series
'Get ready to be enthralled from the first word, and begging for more by the last. Raven Kennedy crafts an astonishing world that's filled with captivating characters and a story you won't be able to put down' - Ivy Asher, author of the Lost Sentinel Series
