GILDED CAGE by Vic James
Gilded Cage by Vic James is an aptly named novel about a dystopian world where classes exist in a modern-day version of Britain. The suppressed civilians have no choice but to serve a ten year sentence as slaves to the Equals who own them. This YA debut novel is dark, yet intriguingly charming filled with magic, romance, and hope as the resilience of the slaves is demonstrated over and over again. The masterful plot, told through many character’s point of view keeps the novel moving along at a perfect pace weaving together the horrors and injustice suffered in the slavedays and forbidden love between master and slave.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this book, but I must say I loved it and was excited to learn it’s part of a series. 5 out of 5 stars.
I received this ebook free from NetGalley with no strings attached. This book was so great that I had to write a review. Thank you so much for the opportunity to read and review an advance ebook copy. Review posted at
