Kurzbeschreibung

Sixteen-year-old Jae Hwa Lee is a Korean-American girl with a black belt, a deadly proclivity with steel-tipped arrows, and a chip on her shoulder the size of Korea itself. When her widowed dad uproots her to Seoul from her home in L.A., Jae thinks her biggest challenges will be fitting into a new school and dealing with her dismissive Korean grandfather. Then she discovers that 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.

But that’s not Jae’s only problem.

There's also Marc. Irresistible and charming, Marc threatens to break the barriers around Jae's heart. As the two grow closer, Jae must decide if she can trust him. But Marc has a secret of his own—one that could help Jae overturn the curse on her family for good. It turns out that Jae's been wrong about a lot of things: her grandfather is her greatest ally, even the tough girl can fall in love, and Korea might just be the home she's always been looking for.

Christina Farley ist in Upstate New York geboren und aufgewachsen. Schon als Kind war sie sehr neugierig, was sie später dazu bewegte, sich in ein Flugzeug zu setzen und um die Welt zu reisen. Sie unterrichtete zehn Jahre lang an internationalen Schulen in Asien; acht dieser zehn Jahre verbrachte sie im geheimnisvollen und wunderschönen Seoul in Korea, wo auch der Roman »Goldglanz« spielt. Derzeit lebt sie mit ihrem Mann und zwei Söhnen in Clermont, Florida - das heißt, bis die Reiselust sie wieder packt und in die unbekannte Ferne zieht. »Goldglanz« ist ihr erster Roman.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely brilliant. Educates, entertains and highly recommended. 2. Februar 2014
Von Rob Slaven - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As usual I didn't pay anything for this book but instead received it for free. This time via the courtesy of the Kindle Firsts program. Despite that kindness I give my candid thoughts below. Oh, and I do not include a plot summary so no spoilers of any kind; you can read the book description for that.

Firstly, this is a YA novel so the criteria I apply differ from those of a standard adult novel. The first thing I look at is whether I'd want my own children to read this book from a moral standpoint. Joyfully, I report that this book contains nothing really sexual in nature, unless you count some occasional kissing. Further there are no drug references or anything else untoward. It should be noted that this is pretty standard youth escapism fiction though so the usual defiance of parental authority is in evidence. In short though, I have no concerns. This is good clean stuff.

The second question I look at is whether this book teach the reader anything. Again, in this case I would reply strongly to the affirmative. The narrative is deeply entwined with Korean mythology and culture. It even goes so far as to include a lengthy glossary in the back so you know this is outside the standard dragons, elves and dwarves motif. Further, for the first time I've seen in a book of this sort, the protagonist faces and problem and actually has the help of her extended family. This isn't the usual situation in which a problem arises and the kids have to go it alone. The whole family is involved and working together. That in itself is a great lesson.

Lastly, I ask whether the reader will be entertained. To that I say, simply, that even as an adult I was entertained. The action is fast-paced and moves along brilliantly and has enough complexity to keep the reader thinking.

So in summary, this is another fine example YA literature that not only entertains but educates at the same time. Highly recommended from a reviewer who almost always finds something to complain about. In this case... I got nothing. Absolutely brilliant.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great read by promising new author, nicely written and edited 3. Februar 2014
Von Bookwyrm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

For my free Kindle book of the month I chose Gilded by Christina Farley and I'm glad I did. I read it in one extended sitting simply because the story was so engrossing and engaging.

First, let me address a few of my pet peeves and how they're handled in this book.

1) Gilded wrapped up every important story thread while leaving a few teasing hints and a path leading to the next book, which I hope is coming soon. Yes, unusual for this day and time - but gratefully appreciated - this book is a complete standalone story, even though it is the first in a series.

So many authors these days leave major parts of their story hanging and some give no resolution to *any* story threads, hoping to coerce you into buying their next book. It's gotten so rampant that I often delete the offending book, resolving to go no further because it's so exasperating. A few threads left unraveled are fine, but I've hit books that leave nothing resolved at all, which I believe is an abuse of the audience and more manipulation and moneygrubbing than creative writing. Thankfully, Gilded does not fall into this trap.

2) This book was well-edited. It means a lot to me not to have misplaced modifiers, comma splices, wrong word choices, and the like intruding upon me and throwing me out of the story. The sharp, professional editing is greatly appreciated!

3) The story was clean and tight. While this is a YA and there are instances of our heroine noticing a particular person is "hot," the romance does not overshadow or intrude upon the storyline and a few kisses are as steamy as it gets. There are no profanities, no gratuitous make-out scenes, and no sexual/offensive innuendos. This is not dumbed-down YA, but a fully-realized story quite sophisticated enough for adults to enjoy.

Based on this book, I'm looking forward to great things from Christina Farley. She has created a story steeped in Korean mythology that's left me hankering for the nearest museum, library, or airport. She captures the essence of culture shock, teenage angst, familial honor and obligations, and the human condition - all while entertaining and enlightening.

While there are stressful and painful circumstances in the book, there is hope, not depression; there is honor and bravery not defeat or cowardice. This book is uplifting even when there is pain and peril. I really loved the feisty heroine who was intelligent, motivated, and brave enough to consider kicking some spirit-world and demigod derriere.

I highly recommend this book. If you love literature, mythology, or fantasy written with the flair of Diana Wynne Jones, Connie Willis, or Lois McMaster Bujold to name a few, this one's for you.

Yet another new author worth waiting for. Thanks for the fun read, Ms. Farley; please keep the books coming! :)

Bought it without expecting very much. It was a novel on a subject culture I had heard little about by a author I had never heard of...... Once I started I could not put it down. Great characters and plot.

While I enjoyed the story, it was a little frustrating to slog through the teenage angst, but this book is written for teenagers.

It helps to have some first hand experience with the Korean culture to know how seriously students take their schooling. It's incredible! American students wouldn't last a week in the Asian education system. Having been there and lived next door to a high school, I was floored by the hours - 8+, 6 days a week. The kids were always laughing after school, they really enjoyed it.

That said, I am not sure American teens will appreciate how much the heroine and her friends study and how seriously high school is taken by everyone.

The author does a wonderful job of describing Korea, she uses some Korean words, but translates them (there is a complete translation at the end of the book, which is helpful while reading it).

It's a fun fantasy with Korean mythology - lots of dragons, etc. Plenty of descriptive martial arts moves, beautiful cultural dresses, flying chariots, good vs evil, and the heroine must save all her female ancestors from imprisonment in "hell".

I can see this story making it to the big screen and I would love to see it in the hands of the right director.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great YA fantasy 4. Februar 2014
Von Peri - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Very good YA fantasy based on Korean mythology about a Korean-American teen from California, carried to Seoul Korea by her father's job only to become embroiled in an unusual family curse. A kick-ass heroine, passionate about archery and Tae Kwon Do, with close friends, Jae is believable and likeable. Oh yeah, there is a cute boy with secrets of his own too.
