Product description

Review

Beautifully characterised and compellingly plotted, Gilded Cage is an impressive debut (Guardian)

A dazzling addition to the growing genre of alternative historical fiction, James's first novel has the added bonus of compelling page-turnability (Daily Mail)

I really enjoyed this. It was a fast-paced, entertaining story, in a world that left me wanting to find out more. I will definitely be getting the next book when it comes out (Genevieve Cogman, author of The Invisible Library)

A dark and intriguing vision of an alternate, magic-drenched Britain, Gilded Cage kept me up way into the night (Aliette de Bodard, author of The House of Shattered Wings)

Devious and deliciously dark with lashings of magic, mystery and mayhem, this juggernaut of a book will keep you hanging on by your fingernails until the very last page (Taran Matharu, bestselling author of the Summoner series)

James's dystopian debut, the first part in her Dark Gifts trilogy, addresses issues of inequality that seem all to pertinent (SFX)

It’s smart, engrossing and incredibly snappily written, with so many compelling characters and pulse-quickening situations that the whole book just flies by. We apologise for the cliché, but it is that good (SciFiNow)

The historical parallels are too delicious to ignore . . . one can’t help but anticipate the next novel in the series (Washington Post)

Brisk plotting, sympathetic characters, and plenty of intrigue will keep readers on the edges of their seats, eager for the next book in a very promising series (Publishers Weekly)

An absorbing first installment that presages an intriguing new fantasy series. (Kirkus)

Gilded Cage offers a fresh take on a popular genre. James' world is as compelling as her prose and as cleverly constructed. Told by a diverse cast of characters from various echelons of society, Gilded Cage is an unputdownable story . . . it's truly a gem (Fantasy Faction)

Ms. James writes with the skill of someone who has been an author for decades. I was blown away by how beautiful the prose was . . . In the end I was left emotionally spent and wanting another book to read immediately (Fantasy Book Review)

Twists and turns make this hard to set down (Booklist)

The most intriguing political fantasy premise since The Hunger Games . . . While the premise is unique, James’ addictive storytelling echoes the strongest qualities of a few of the political YA series of recent years (Barnes & Noble)

Book Description

An astounding debut from Vic James, and the first title in her gripping The Dark Gifts Trilogy.
