Josie Jaffrey ↠ 8 reviewOut wanting to try another vampire tale I say DO IT Dystopian paranormal dark and unpredictableMs Jaffrey deftly melds two stories into one through threads of brilliance without sacrificing either as she tells of two worlds the Blue illed with humans in what is the world s last city and the Red a wasteland The Gilgul of Park Avenue filled with unknown danger and presumably certain deathIn a world where the Solis Invicti are the ruling nobility offering their protection and taking human attendantsor blood Julia has remained in the background until the day she is called The Last of the Renshai forward to serve Lucas But Lucas is different a gentle soul and an unlikely bondorms that goes against all Julia has ever knownIn the Red Cameron desperately searches Even Eagles Need a Push: Learning to Soar in a Changing World for a lost ueen a lostriend but what he inds on his journey is an abomination to be eared by all As a Silver he may be stronger than the monsters he inds but the Weepers numbers are growing and their thirst will only be uenched by human blood the human blood of the Blue and there may be only one way to stop them a way that is as deadly as the disease they carry and it may smell Green But irst Cam must survive the threat of a powerful traitor who wants him deadFollow the myths of servitude the hopes of mere humans to gain At Sixes and Sevens favor with their masters and become immortal and the often raw and brutal realities of power and control Is living in the Blue as captive slaves worse than escaping to the Redreedom and certain deathTold in the POVs of Julia and Cameron two extremely strong and memorable characters The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole feel both of their emotions their doubts and their insecurities as well as theirears Then The Last Honest Man: Mordecai Richler: An Oral Biography feel the power of budding loves they bothind each with a being not of their kindBe part of their stories coming together in a high tension razor taut crescendo as the Red bleeds into the Blue humanity has nowhere to turn and the Silvers are ill prepared to defend against the onslaught Lies will be uncovered a ueen The Catholic Home found and an even greater battle is comingIn the heat of battle a new age is comingAbsolutely LOVED thisabulous read Sarah Binks from Josie Jaffrey LOVED IT Add this one to your MUST READ list I received a complimentary ARC editionrom Josie JaffreySeries Sovereign Book 1Publication Date June 25 2018Publisher Josie JaffreyGenre Paranormal Dystopian Available rom For Reviews Giveaways Fabulous Book News ollow An interesting read that tells the tale of a plague that has spread across the world Vampires are susceptible so they have built a haven where the humans are uncontaminated and used as Too Many Puppies! food Julia is one of those human I liked Julia though now that I think about it her character doesn t seem to have a lot goingor her I can understand that she is subservient to Lucas her Master but she didn t really have much of a personality The love story between her and Lucas was rushed IMO I wish the author had given us to work on than the cooking and eating thing they had going on I did like them together I just wish the relationship could have developed slowlyThe other POV we had was Cameron He is a vampire that has been searching The Wanderers for his vampire partneror centuries He hasn t given hope The Last Dickens finding heror his has been searching Standing for Something: 10 Neglected Virtues That Will Heal Our Hearts and Homes for his vampire partneror centuries He hasn t given hope Takedown: The Fall of the Last Mafia Empire finding heror his who is entombed As much as I liked Cam and Felix anytime it was their POV I got jerked out of the story It took a bit to get into rhythmAgain terrific book I am so hyped Gordon Loggins and the Three Bears for the next one already I can t wait to see what s going to happen 35Date Reviewed 22 June 2018This Review wasirst posted on Keep Reading Forward If you want to see check out our other locations as well as hereCheck the blog Diamantmysteriet for an excerpt of the book ARC provided by the author in exchangeor an honest review In the Gilded King the Blue is the last city in the world and it doesn t look like it is doing well Julia serves the nobility of the city even when she meets Lucas some boy who believes in the Touching the Fire: Fifteen Poets of Today's Latino Renaissance fairytales they heard Julia knows that there is no timeor these stories in the Blue However in the Blue not everyone is Human While there s the Blue the Red exists just outside the Blue s boundaries In the Red Cameron searches or a lost ueen and ends up ighting a long thought dead enemy on the rise Either way the Blue is in Torrent of Portyngale: Re-Edited from the Unique Ms. in the Chetham Library, Manchester (Classic Reprint) for an awakeningI was approached by the author to review this book When the book wasirst mentioned I was told that this series is a stand alone trilogy that takes place in the same world as her Solis Invicti series a paranormal romance My irst thought there was no way I was going to read this Paranormal romance is sort of not my thing However it was explained That This Isn T Really this isn t really paranormal romance book after all even though there is a ew bits of romance in the bookAlthough I have read a Unnatural Leadership: Going Against Intuition and Experience to Develop Ten New Leadership Instincts few paranormal books before what really took my attention and made me want to read this book was the cover and the story of this lost ueen I wanted to know about it and what was the significance of this lost ueen I was not really drawn to the Blue and the Red and what else was going on between the two areas I was just drawn to this lost ueen This is was plot I was willing toollowDue to my deep "Focus On The Topic Of "on the topic of lost ueen I wasn t really aware of what else was going on or I will didn t commit everything to remember later on However what I saw was good drawn out characters that made an interesting story between the two POV s that were interesting It definitely allowed some suspense to grow As If Being 12 3/4 Isnt Bad Enough, My Mother Is Running for President! from switching to the other POV when something dramatic happened and left us waiting throughout the next chapter to know what happened next I thought this was a good moveIt was interesting to see something I thought was a good book even when it was not in my normal rangeor books I usually read I did think this. ??d escape into the trees if she didn’t know that contamination and death awaited humanity outsideBut not everyone in the Blue is human and not everyone can be containedBeyond the city’s boundaries in the wild orests of the Red Cameron has precious little huma. .
Josie Jaffrey s book would it in perfect with the style and Stickman Odyssey, Book 2: The Wrath of Zozimos format of books that TORMacMillian or Orbit publish I d also love to see some tweaks made by an editor at a large publisher as that would vault The Gilded King intoive star territory This is easily a good enough book to be picked up by a major publisher and I really hope The Last of the Tribe for Jaffrey s sake it is The CharactersFantasy books may seem like they are always based on the new worlds or situations created to those who haven t read too many of them But those of us who have read than we can count in theantasy genre know that the best novels have strong characters and an interesting world that is along or the ride The Gilded King is all about the characters We have our typical slave girls a vampire who isn t cruel my Buffy self wants to write soul here lol and a vampire who is searching or someone in the Red Between them we get the story of why the Blue exists what the Red is like and what might happen if the two meet Along the way we experience uestions about morality choice and devotion What would you risk to The Book of Air free yourself And what would you risk toind someone The SupernaturalThere s a lot of lore and history to learn here You also have to uickly catch on to the set up In a nutshell there is virus that infects humans and supernatural alike the supernatural are or less vampires and zombies but different names but changes them in different ways The Blue is an area that is ree of this virus with a severe class set up The Red is or less everything outside the Blue that is wild and deadly so the Blue say The use of commonly known monsters like vampires and zombies with a twist is brilliant We don t need to learn a whole new type or breed of human instead we just need to learn the twist that Jaffrey has given her variation And of course igure out the new names she s given them I m not telling you ll have to read itBut not PerfectI ve been told recently that I am a tough reviewer and rater I suppose that were I to consider that this is an indie published book I might give it 5 stars because it is excellent or being indie But I refuse to rate books at different levels just because I want to keep a standard or only rating the highest at 5 So here s the thing Jaffrey is clearly a talented writer and I am really looking The Seduction of Miranda Prosper forward to of the Sovereign series as well as writing in any realm What The Gilded King needs is a little bit of massaging in the middle a little connective tissue early on I will admit to being confused on a couple occasions with the lore and not in the way in which a reveal creates but because I just missed something andinally just a wee bit of editing The Warrior Princess of Pennyroyal Academy from a top professional If these three things were tweaked this would be a story that could easily rival the likes of CS Friedman OverallThis is an exciting new voice inantasyparanormal genre Not urban supernatural and not The Pierced Heart fullantasy but instead somewhere in the middle and uniue in it s own way I just bought the second book and eagerly look orward to diving back into the world that Jaffrey has made If you want vampires with a different taste and zombies inside a beautiful antasy world Elizabeth I feel then The Gilded King is definitelyor you I was provided a ree copy of this book in exchange or an honest and unbiased review "Book Reaction 35 Stars That "Reaction 35 Stars that between like and love Review on my blogWell that was a whirlwind of an adventure if I ve
"ever been on "been on This book took me by complete surprise I thought it was going to be a book about peasants and royalty but it was so much than that Way better than I ever expected it to be Blood bonds centuries old traditions with mysteries and secrets this is a book that packs a punchJaffrey has a very direct writing style Told in the third person rom the perspective of both Julia and Cameron we get a take on two separate parts of the same world Although we only see it rom their eyes we get a greater understanding of the situation our characters reside in as mysteries slowly start to unravel The transition between the chapters is extremely effective and somehow always relating to one another even in completely different situations It really is a very intriguing story and it keeps your attention all the way throughThe characters themselves are not only different species but different people in their morals and behaviour I like that we get these two very different people as the text people in their morals and behaviour I like that we get these two very different people as the text confuses you as to who you are reading rom I do have to say that I enjoyed reading rom Julia s perspective the best She is a very relatable lawed character While Cameron is true to his person i just ound him to be a bit boring at times but that could be due to his years spent on the earth You ll know what i mean when you read the bookThe world itself is vast and ever changing I believe its set in the The Everyman Book of Nonsense Verse faruture of our earth where our species have diverged into two at times three separate breeds It s ascinating because you only learn about the world slowly and things only start to come together at the end when you nearly have all the information I just kept reading to ind out about this intriguing world and I wasn t disappointedI haven t read a book like this in a while and it is one I am extremely happy with The story is a Ten Years Beyond Baker Street: fast paced political mindield with a vagueness that actually keeps you intrigued With so many twists and turns I didn t know where we would end up but it was one hell of a rideRelease Date June 25th 2018 And they thought it couldn t be done but Josie Jaffrey proves the paranormal world wrong again THE GILDED KING is a rock solid base or a new series and a simply amazing read rom start to The Essential Library for New Moms 4-Book Bundle: Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child; The Baby Food Bible; Infant Massage; Colic Solved finish Anyone on theence ab.

Book was good to read and I know bigger paranormalfantasy ans will love this book as well The Gilded King may be a short book but this was an impressive book overallWhile I am on the line of deciding whether or not I wish to continue the series or myself I urge others to give this book a chance and discover the world it has to offer It is really interesting suspenseful and dramatic a good combination a book should have to keep it good enough throughout the entire story 4 starsI actually liked it For someone who hates vampires I sure enjoyed this book a lotWorld Building PhenomenalBlue last world s city and the orest of RedEverything its so good the worlds blend it is a delightWhat makes this book different NYCTaxiCabTales.com: Taxi Stories from streets of NYC from otherantasy YA out there is that it The Wrong Side of the Bed focuses on the characters than the description of the environment The main characters are so developed in that level that theyeel so very real Would I read it again Yeah why not Would I recommend it Of course Was it worth it Yes so worth it The Gilded King is the The Alvin Ho Super Collection: Books 1-4 first book in Josie Jaffrey s Sovereign series and it sets the standardor the rest of this series extremely high Honestly I was addicted کاروان امید from the veryirst page and I cannot wait to dive into the کاروان امید: سرگذشت تری فاکس future books in this series Inact the Sovereign series is a spin off of Josie Jaffrey s Solis Invicti series and I m rather desperate to go and grab those books now tooBeing a spin off series I was somewhat tentative about going into the Sovereign series Although it was advertised as working alone I m always nervous that I will miss links There have been many occasions where I have picked up spin off series and have missed many details as it wasn t uite the standalone it was advertised as The Gilded King does work The Cat Who Sang for the Birds (Cat Who... fine as a standalone introduction to a new series but I doeel as though readers of the Solis Invicti series will understand certain things better There were many times when events were spoken of and explained which I thought were obvious references to the Solis Invicti series As someone who is now desperate to grab A Bargain in Silver The Price of Silver Bound in Silver and The Silver Bullet I Tempting Faith Di Napoli feel as though I know what to expect with some of the details Therefore I would suggest if you re someone who likes to know everything read the Solis Invicti seriesirst If you re happy events explained rather than reading the way the events unfold then dive straight into The Gilded King it really is a great readI m a big an of dystopian worlds when they are mixed with the paranormal we known so well rom urban The Southern Belles of Honeysuckle Way fantasy and in this case it was vampires Not our usual kind though With The Gilded King we come to understand a different vampire world to what we are accustomed to we get to see a new way of vampirism As a lover of vampire novels and dystopian novels this book was exactly what I could hopeor rom a combination of the twoWe ollow two stories throughout that come to overlap towards the end of the book Both were very different kinds of stories but both were wonderful Sometimes When There Are Multiple Stories Being when there are multiple stories being within a single book I The Confident Woman: How to Take Charge and Recharge Your Life find myself wishing we were given the stories individually but not with The Gilded King I really enjoyed the back andorth I enjoyed watching the way it slowly brought the different aspects of THE WORLD TO LIFE FOR ME I CANNOT PICK world to life or me I cannot pick of the two stories were my avourite as I enjoyed the characters and the events in both so much I m so excited to see where both stories take us next and I m really hoping the two will cross over some in the utureHonestly this book had so much There was action there was drama there was romance there were twists and turns and so many other things Once I started this book I could not put it down I ound myself turning the pages at a rapid pace desperate to see how everything came together Upon reaching the end with the information given to us and the way we re left lingering with uestions I ound myself desperate or book two in the series Without a doubt I ll be grabbing it as soon as I canOverall this was a wonderful read In The Way of Women fact this was one of those cases where my inability to hand outive star ratings like the rest of the population resulted in a our point ive star read being rounded down I honestly believe though after just one book that Josie Jaffrey is than capable of pulling a The Dream of Water: A Memoir five star ratingrom me and I ll certainly be reading of her work in the hope I The Bravest Cat!
