The Gilded Ones, by Namina Forna

adventurous hopeful inspiring slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


Honestly it took me a while to get into this book but I’m glad I didn’t quit it. 
It’s a really empowering story, deka’s whole journey of understanding who she is and where she belongs. A true roller coaster. I did predict a couple of plot twists but there were some unthinkable ones. 
I love deka, belcalis, britta, keita, adwapa and especially IXA!!!!
