My Thoughts : 

Princess Leena hates to see her 5 year old brother turning out like her father. He is King of Ourthuro and is very cruel. On her brothers birthday a servant drops the sword the King had made for him and the king makes the 5 year old cut off the mans hand. Leena hates this and they way of life in the Kingdom. Her sisters wedding is coming up and Leena knows that if she doesn't do something soon, she will be next. See Leena is already in love with Mikza, the soldier assigned to be her personal guard. 

When her father introduces her to the match he made for her she knows now is the time to forsake her kingdom and run. She makes plans with Mikza to leave but will they be able to? 

Well, what a tiny surprise!! Being only 51 pages long this novella sure packs a punch. I literally gasped when this ended because I was like NOOOO!! This is my first Kaitlyn Davis book and it definitely wont be my last.  

Its only the prequel and already I love the world and characters she has created. The king seems pure evil and is trying to make his son like him. Leena hates to see it but is powerless to stop it. I loved Leenas character, she is brave, kind and strong. She loves Mikza and is willing to forsake her fortune and life for him. Mikza is a soldier and is handsome and brave and will do anything for her and is the only one who knows her secret. Reading their story was heartbreaking but so sweet.

The Golden Cage was a breathtaking love story and the start of something that's sure to be amazing. Its an emotional roller coaster and one that leaves you wanting more. Cant wait to read book 1 and see where the book takes us.
