Gilded Cage by Vic James (Dark Gifts #1)

4 Stars

Gilded Cage by Vic James is the first book in her Dark Gifts series. This book has such a great atmosphere full of political intrigue, magic, and rebellion. She said that the initial arc is intended to be a trilogy but she does see room to expand the story to more books if she feels it is needed. I love the way it looks like these books are going and I will happily read three books. I am a bit apprehensive about it going past more than that, because ultimately I want a happily ever after ending. I want the Slave Days to be abolished and everyone to live together peacefully. Can that happen… PLEASE?!

This world is dark. I read this at the same time I was reading Six of Crows, and I had a bit of trouble distinguishing the worlds at first. Not because they are similar in a detailed way, but it is more the feeling you get while reading. My favorite character is Silyen with his smart and powerful creepiness but I also loved the direction Luke’s character took. And then there is Renie. She is perfect but I have been scarred by dystopian writers that always seem to kill off my favorite characters. I worry she has a huge target on her back.

There were definite plot twists that I never saw coming, and I’m sure the next book will have many more. I’ll definitely be reading the next book as soon as I can get my hands on it.
