About the Book

Jae Hwa Lee is ready to forget about immortals and move on with her life. Until Kud, god of darkness, sends an assassin to kill her.
 
Jae escapes with the knowledge that Kud is seeking the lost White Tiger Orb, and joins forces with a legendary organization, the Guardians of Shinshi, to find the orb before Kud can steal it and discover what it’s capable of. Jae knows she’ll need her friends for this fight, but they have problems of their own: her best friend Michelle doesn’t yet fully understand the dangers of the Spirit World; boyfriend Marc is spending more and more time away from her, training to become a Guardian of Shinshi; and Marc hates the fellow trainee assigned to help them: the oddly riveting— and absurdly handsome—Kang-dae. They set out together on a harrowing journey that will take Jae into the darkest corners of the Spirit World and the real world.

But Kud is a stronger and more devious god than Jae ever imagined. Jae is soon painfully reminded that by making an enemy of Kud, she has placed her closest friends in danger, and must decide how much she can bear to sacrifice to defeat one of the most powerful immortals in all of Korea.

 


 

A Message from the Author

"In just a few short weeks, SILVERN, the sequel to GILDED will be released! I am so excited about this new adventure that Jae Hwa takes as she embarks into the deepest, darkest corners of Korea. In this book, you’ll see many of the same characters from Gilded, as well as meet new ones. You’ll also be introduced to new Korean myths as mythological creatures. I can’t wait to share this next book with YABC readers, which is why I’m thrilled to share that my publisher will be giving away 20 advanced Kindle copies of Silvern!"

About the Author

It all began when I was nine, curled under my covers, listening to my father read Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien. That’s where the beauty and power of storytelling came to life for me. I was so inspired that I started a writing group in 4th grade. All my friends came over and we’d write stories and share them. When I was ten, I submitted my first short story to a magazine. It was rejected. I thought I was a terrible writer. I put writing aside and decided to become a teacher.

It was after teaching and traveling internationally for ten years that I decided to tackle my bucket list. ‘Write a book’ happened to be on it. I wrote that book. It was awful, just as I suspected it’d be. But a very strange thing happened. I realized I liked writing. Finally I’d found that outlet to share all the crazy, wild stories floating in my head.

I was hooked. I wrote and wrote. Finally, I snagged a fabulous agent, Jeff Ourvan. He submited GILDED to publishers and found a home for it with my wonderful editor, Miriam Juskowicz at Skyscape/Amazon Children’s.

I love the cover! It is intriguing and mysterious and makes me want to open the book to see what's inside. I read Gilded and am excited to continue with Jae's adventures. In the synopsis, the word "sacrifice" really jumped out and made me think that Jae will face high stakes in her quest to defeat Kud!
