The Gilded Ones, by Namina Forna

adventurous dark hopeful tense medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No
I'm absolutely blown away by this brutal but stunning debut. I loved the world, the premise, the characters, the bond between the alaki, the way Deka's story unfolded. This is a definite new favourite.
