Then the god of darkness, Kud, sends an assassin to kill her.

I really am not! They are portrayed as either too possessive and violent, or completely useless with women and romance in general. Aka I was okay with white boy love interest, haha. She constantly messes up. Despite that kindness I give my candid thoughts below.

A massive, lionlike creature, eyes glowing yellow, stands in my path. But Marc has a secret of his own—one that could help Jae overturn the curse on her family for good. Again, in this case I would reply strongly to the affirmative.

Review: Gilded by Christina Farley | The YA Kitten

Christina writes fantasy for teens and children. As the two grow closer, Jae must decide if she can trust him. After teaching and traveling internationally for ten years, Gklded started writing about her adventures, tossing in a little fiction for fun. True, I don’t know any non-Koreans who have, but I’d like to think there’s a really awesome diverse student body.

Then the author hit her stride at the 80th percent mark and bounced the rating to gildee stars!

There is however the insta-love and Marc who is willing to help Jae go up against the Demigod.
