Lynette Noni knocked this sequel out of the park. I had such high hopes because I LOVED The Prison Healer, so I was super nervous going into The Gilded Cage that the magic would be gone. It turns out it’s only gone because Kiva wanted it to be (IYKYK) :-P. It’s hard to review without spoilers for the first novel or this one even.
The story had all the heart and emotion of the first novel albeit with a different setting and different set of challenges for Kiva. Her sense of justice and right and wrong are challenged endlessly and Kiva is exactly who you want her to be from start to finish.
There are lots of intertwined plots to follow with hidden enemies and twists you don’t see coming and another godforsaken ending. Noni is killing me with these! Now I know why I usually wait until an entire series is out before I read it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thanks to Netgalley for a copy. All opinions above are my own.
Do you read books in a series as they come out or wait til it’s complete?
