The Golden Cage (A Dance of Dragons #0.5) by Kaitlyn Davis

From bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis comes a fantasy adventure perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Graceling, and Game of Thrones.

In the land of Ourthuro, cruelty is a way of life. The king rules with an iron fist and no one dare defy him--no one except his daughter. Princess Leena is keeping a dangerous secret, she has fallen in love with a soldier and it would mean both of their lives if her father ever discovered their affair.

But Leena will risk it all to be with the man she loves--her heart, her life, her freedom. And when her brother's birthday celebration takes a dangerous turn, Leena is forced to make a decision that will change the fate of her nation and eventually the world.

The Golden Cage is a prequel novella to The Shadow Soul (A Dance of Dragons #1)--available now!

In THE GOLDEN CAGE we are taken back to a time of castles, kings, and forbidden love. Leena has a secret so deep, that leaving the safety of her home is the only way to escape her father's wrath. She is willing to risk hell and high water to be with the man she loves. But will it be enough?

There is no denying that this story is well written. The proof is in the words. I loved the flow and the attention the author demands with her writing and imagination. It is a short novella but when reading it, it seemed much longer. You are so caught up in the story line, you feel as if you've been around these characters before, even though you just met them. You can't help but feel for them. In the end, you want to scream. Scream for justice. Scream for wrongs to be righted. Scream for love to have a happy ending. And in the end, it leaves you wanting more.

5 Stars!
