Brought to you by Penguin.

The latest novel in the smash-hit Plated Prisoners by Sunday Times bestselling author Raven Kennedy

'Find me in another life. Find me in them all'

It all ends now. . .

But Every end is also a beginning.

I was supposed to die. If it weren’t for Slade, I would have. But he tore a hole the world I know and I went through it. To Annwyn. To home.

Annwyn is the realm of the fae, a magical place full of beauty and danger.

Here, I am known as Lyäri Ulvêre – the golden one gone. And there are people in this world who want to keep me that way.

But I am not that girl in the gilded cage anymore, and I won’t be used again. Nor stopped on my way back to Slade.

I am my own woman. And I will find him. In this world, or the next.

  • This series is the gift that keeps on giving. Gold is an immaculate continuation of the Plated Prisoner series, full of breathtaking twists and heart-wrenching revelations. Raven’s writing never fails to transcend the page, puppeteering each word into a motion picture in my mind. The only problem is I NEVER want to leave.
    So much beauty … So much growth … So much chest-battering pain … I wish I could read it for the first time all over again.
    Sarah A Parker, bestselling author of When the Moon Hatched, and the Crystal Bloom series
