First off I would like to thank NetGalley, Delacorte Press, and Random House Children's for the ebook arc so I could have the chance to read and review this amazing book.

Now for the review! 5/5 Stars. The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna is a fresh new feminist fantasy that everyone will enjoy. First off let's discuss the world building. I have always loved fantasy, however sometimes the world building can seem very repetitive, but this was not the case for The Gilded Ones. The world building for this world was totally new and unique. It was also refreshing to see such a new and creative magic system fleshed out along with the world building. On top of the excellent writing the plot of the Gilded Ones is top tier. This book has everything you could ever want: women fighting oppression, LGBTQ+ representation, found family, and a romance that does not overpower the main character's story arc. This book made me smile, laugh, and cry. If you are looking for your new favorite fantasy series The Gilded Ones is what you need.
