Gilded Serpent by Danielle L. Jensen ARC Review
Gilded Serpent by Danielle L. Jensen
THEIR BATTLES ENDED IN VICTORY
Lydia returns to Mudaire to enter training at the healing temple. But instead of fighting to save lives, she’s convinced she is doing more harm than good. She delves into the history of the gods only to discover a truth that will change her life forever.
His birthright as commander of the Royal Army is finally in his grasp, but Killian feels anything but victorious. Burdened by his past, he embraces the darker side of his mark—and in doing so, risks starting a war.
BUT THE WAR HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN
Having defeated the tyrant Urcon, Marcus struggles to form a lasting alliance with the Arinoquians. But he is plagued by the knowledge that there is a traitor among his friends, and it could cost him everything that he’s fought for.
Torn between her growing allegiance to the Thirty-Seventh legion and her need to liberate her people, Teriana finds herself mired in a web of secrets. She embarks upon a path that will either save everyone she loves—or put them all in their graves.

Well, this has to be my favorite of the series so far.
My heart was pounding, I was so scared, delighted, and anxious for my beloved characters all at once. (Yes, it can happen).
We get to see both sets of our favorite couples in this book so no matter if your team Marcus or a Killian you will be happy.
We get to see both simultaneous storylines from different points of view, and as soon as one storyline was cooling down from being at the breaking point the other went into high gear. There was not one single point during this book that I wanted to put it down, and this has officially placed Danielle L Jensen as an auto-buy author for me.
This book had me reeling from it for days afterward and even when I went on a local trip to a limestone cave surrounded by steep mountains, all I could think about was a certain scene with its Sharpe mountainsides.
I truly cannot wait for the next book in the series and the year will be a long wait.
If you want more of Danielle's writing don't forget her other new series:
The Bridge Kingdom. (Book 1) out now.
The Traitor Queen (Book 2) out now.
