Gilded

Author: Christina Farley

Why is this book feminist-friendly?

Jae Hwa is a Korean-American teenage girl who just moved back to Seoul, South Korea with her father after her mother’s death. She learns that her family has been targeted by a Korean god for generations, and that she’s next. Trained in traditional Korean archery and Tae Kwon Do, she’s determined to fight back against the gods and her fate. Jae is an awesome female character and this is a great story that weaves Korean mythology with modern-day fantasy!

    Does the reader need to have a general knowledge of Korean mythology before reading Gilded?

      I would say no; I didn’t & was fine :) The book explains the myths that are relevant to the story.
