Wednesday, March 12, 2014

When sixteen-year old, Jae Hwa, is uprooted from her home in L.A. to Korea, she thought her biggest problem would be fitting in with her classmates and dealing with her dismissive grandfather. But she was wrong. A Korean demi-god, Haemosu, has been stealing the soul of the oldest daughter of each generation in her family for centuries. And she’s next.

    I am reminded of Shakespeare's King Lear. "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies".

  1. Unknown said...:

    for me it inspires pictures of times past when artists used things like gold leaf to enrich their pictures and jewellers gilded metals to produce beautiful artisan pieces

  1. The title reminds me of a cage. I love the pretty cover.

  1. When I first saw it, I read 'Guild' and the first guild I thought of was Sovereign. It's a kind of inside thing between me and a couple of friends though.

  1. Reminds me of a gold & riches.

  1. What comes to mind is a cage made of gold, a palace run by an evil king. Basically, someone living in luxury but unable to be happy or do what they want most.

  1. Unknown said...:

    The title reminds me of the Gilded Age (period approximately spanning the final three decades of the 19th century in the U.S.), the sentimental ballad "A Bird in a Gilded Cage," and gilding the lily.

    I didn't even know what Gilded meant until I googled it after reading another book, but now it just reminds me of crowns and castles!
