I thought that this book was utterly great. It’s based off the story of Rumpelstiltskin, which I honestly didn’t remember that well. So it was basically like a whole new story for me!!
I love all of Marissa Meyers books, and I knew that “Gilded” would be the same. The cover is what really drew me in, it is so enchanting looking and utterly enticing. I fell completely in love with Gild, and got so excited every-time he appeared in the book. The romance between him and the main girl was so exciting.
I really liked the villainous character as well. I feel like we didn’t really get to know him that well, but the ending had me shocked. The story kept developing in such a natural way, and I was enraptured by it. I genuinely cried near the end of the book: that’s how you know a story properly moved you. This book isn’t a stand alone (like I assumed), so I’m excited to dive deeper into the characters in the next book!
