Arc Book Review | Gilded Cage (Dark Gifts #1)


This was an interesting premise and what got me to pick up this book. My main problem with it: I was reading a book at the same time that had a similar theme. This book just ended up feeling unoriginal in a lot of aspects.

Maybe that’s not fair to the book, because I do think it has some original aspects to it, like the fact that it could be classified in a sense as a history what if. It had an interesting twist on slavery (though the way it’s portrayed in here, I would almost call it indentured servitude), and some of the characters were intriguing, especially the three noble brothers that Abi and her family go to serve.

My main feeling while reading this was just meh. I wasn’t liking or disliking the book. It just wasn’t grabbing me.

I think this is one I’ll have to come back to.

My Rating: 2/5 stars

*I received an arc copy of this book via Netgalley from Del Rey Books in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
