Product description

A New York Times bestseller.

The must-read epic fantasy of 2021, as featured on Cosmo, Buzzfeed, BookRiot and Refinery 29. In this West African-inspired world, girls are outcasts by blood and warriors by choice, perfect for fans of Children of Blood and Bone and Black Panther.

Sixteen-year-old Deka lives in Otera, a deeply patriarchal ancient kingdom, where a woman’s worth is tied to her purity, and she must bleed to prove it. But when Deka bleeds gold – the colour of impurity, of a demon – she faces a consequence worse than death. She is saved by a mysterious woman who tells Deka of her true nature: she is an Alaki, a near-immortal with exceptional gifts. The stranger offers her a choice: fight for the Emperor, with others just like her, or be destroyed…

“Fans of Children of Blood and Bone and Black Panther are going to adore this one.” -Buzzfeed

“[A] stormingly good debut” – The Observer

“Namina Forna could be the Toni Morrison of YA Fantasy.” – Refinery 29

“The Gilded Ones redefines sisterhood and is sure to leave readers both inspired and ultimately hopeful.”—Stephanie Garber, #1 NYT bestselling author of Caraval

“The Gilded Ones is a fierce, unflinching fantasy that marks Forna as a debut to watch.” – Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of And I Darken

“Debut author Namina Forna’s created a fierce female protagonist you’ll root for and a captivating world that feels so real you can step inside it.” – Bookriot

Our April 2021 Teen Book of the Month

Finally, for my April Book of the Month for Teens I have chosen the astounding The Gilded Ones. This must-read, epic fantasy debut from Namina Forna has already taken the world by storm and was a New York Times bestseller. In Otera, a West African-inspired world, a woman’s worth is tied to her purity and she must bleed to prove it. But when our protagonist Deka bleeds gold – the colour of demons – she faces a choice: an eternity of torture and deaths, or to become a warrior…

The Gilded Ones is perfect for fans of Tomi Adeyemi, Leigh Bardugo and Black Panther. This fierce fantasy has a huge feminist angle throughout the plot, from the deeply patriarchal kingdom, to the strong sisterhood of the warriors, and the all-powerful female ancestors. Forna creates a captivating world that completely absorbs the reader, leaving them inspired, ambitious and in awe.
