New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer concludes her young adult retelling of Rumpelstiltskin in this breathtaking sequel!It isn't true, she wanted to whisper. To lean forward and nuzzle her cheek against his temple.
To press him against the wall and mold her body to his. I am not his. I will never be his. Serilda and Gild cannot break the curses that tether their spirits to Adalheid's haunted castle. There they remain trapped for eternity. On the night of the Endless Moon, the Erlking means to capture one of the seven gods and so be reunited with his lover, Perchta, who has been banished to the underworld.
But it soon becomes clear that the Erlking's hunger for vengeance won't be satisfied with a single wish, and his true intentions have the power to alter the mortal realm forever. Serilda and Gild have no choice but to thwart his plans, all the while solving the mystery of Gild's forgotten name, and freeing all the ghosts kept in servitude to the dark ones. As the evil forces gather, it seems only their love is strong enough to sustain them . . .

Cursed By Marissa Meyer with a snoozy Puddin
This is the sequel to Gilded, a reimagining of the classic Rumpelstiltskin fairy-tale, but so much darker & twistier! We once again follow Serilda, the silver-tongued storyteller, determined to free herself, Gild, & all those who have been trapped in Adelheid Castle by the evil Erlking and his court of demons & monsters. If you’re expecting a fun & sweet fairy-tale retelling then this duology won’t be for you! It without a doubt harkens back to more Brothers Grim style stories. It’s a classic tale of good VS evil, with no form of redemption or sympathy for the villains, which is honestly a refreshing change. This was an enchanting read the whole way through, however the last third of the book really amps up the tension & ominous vibes, setting the scene for some amazing chapters full of reveals & shocks. Marissa did such a beautiful job with the world & character building, she without a doubt has a silver tongue of her own to weave such tales. There are stories within stories in this book as Serilda weaves tales presumably from thin air for the sweet children under her charge who she will do anything to free. I loved all the descriptions of the different mythical creatures, both the nightmarish ones & the beautiful ones, the descriptions are written so well I can perfectly picture them in my minds eye & what I wouldn’t give to have the talent to draw them. I was a little sad when the story finished, & wished for more of an epilogue when it was finished, but I will absolutely be rereading this in the future!
Don’t want to say anything to spoil this book or the first one. So I will just say if you love fairytale retellings and have enjoyed Marissa Meyer’s other books the. I think you should definitely check out this series.
