This is the story of King Midas...
Or that's what we were always told. The Golden King with his palace of riches and me, his golden touched girl.
I'm kept locked away. For my safety, I'm told. No one can get in. Apart from him.
But when political upheaval becomes strife in our kingdom, I am sent with the royal court to be with my King.
And everything I know starts to change. My love for Midas is challenged, my trust is broken. Everything I knew about him was wrong.
We are told it's his tale but really, it's mine.

'I hope you burn so bright that you scorch your Golden King down to ash'

After ten years, I have left the grips of one king only to fall into the hands of another.

I have fought the terrifying Red Raid Pirates, endured the murder of those I care about, and survived the frozen planes of Orea, only to find myself a prisoner of the army of Fourth Kingdom.

Leading the army is Commander Rip, a notorious warrior whose name is whispered in taverns and street corners all over the six kingdoms.

But as I get to know him, I realise that the tales of his brutality aren't true.

He is something else. He is fae.

Part of the powerful and magical people who are said to have abandoned this world entirely three hundred years ago.

But here one stands before me. And when he turns his onyx eyes upon me, I fall captive.

For an entirely different reason.

As his army march towards a battle with the king I once adored, I must decide.

Midas or Rip.

Loyalty or freedom.

In this game of war and love, it's my turn to choose.

I was told that being confined was to keep the bad out . . . Until i realized it was about keeping me in
Midas made me forbidden and weak. Little did he know that I would find my voice which sings now.
Something has ignited within me. Something dark. Something angry.
Then comes King Ravinger.
And the last thing I wanted was my heart to break.
Can I fall in love when my fate hangs in the balance?
One thing is for sure, I won't be caught in a cage again.
This time, it'll be me setting the trap

I have burned down the court of King Midas and from those flames, I will rise and wield my own power.
The problem is, the world won't let me.
Because when you turn against a King - everyone turns against you.
But with Slade by my side we will fight the monarchs that come for us.
And if we need to become the villains, then so be it.
Because as long as I live in this world, I won't be used again.
I must be strong. I must be undefeatable. I will shine like the sun - and blind my enemies

Every end is also a beginning.

I was going to die. If it weren’t for Slade, I would have. But he ripped the world open for me 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 no one is going to use me again. Or stop me from finding my way back to Slade.

I am my own woman. And I will find him.

In this world, or the next.
