Review: The Gilded Lynx

The Gilded LynxThe Gilded Lynx by Leah Erickson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I recieved this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book presents itself as a coming of age novel. About a young teenager who is sheltered from the outside world, and wants the chance to experience it. It is about a mother who has set out the be the best she can be, but in the process neglected her daughter. It is about learning the world is not black and white; that all ‘good’ is tainted with ‘evil’.

I don’t know exactly what I was expecting after reading the synopsis, but I know I got much more than I thought. Daphne is extremely naive, sheltered child when we first meet her, and we get to watch her grow up.

For me, the characters were well described, and played an integral role in Daphne’s story. The romantic in me was hoping for a little more resolution in the disappearance of her father, but overall an excellent book.

I will admit that the first few chapters took a little for me to get into, but it was well worth the effort.
