Gilded-FarleyWhen 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.

Praise for GILDED
“An amazing contemporary fantasy that explores the vast legends of Korea, this richly detailed novel kept me turning the pages well into the night. Jae Hwa starts off as a strong character and ends as a noble one, using both her brains and her brawn to win the day–she’s exactly the kind of girl YA literature needs.” ~from Beth Revis, NY Times Bestselling author of Across the Universe series

“Farley brings South Korea’s fascinating culture and mythology into vivid detail in this shining debut, and Jae is a compelling heroine. An exotic, thrilling read, GILDED had me utterly entranced!” ~from Jessica Khoury, author of ORIGIN and VITRO

“The Korean setting and myths make for an interesting backdrop” ~School Library Journal 


“Energy, adventure, and ancient Korean legends whisk the reader away to lands real and spirit bound. Jae Hwa proves to be a worthy heroine as she accepts the challenge of her life, learns that even tough girls can fall for nice boys, and finds that Korea has become her true home. Further adventures are on the way.” —Booklist 



5 Stars- “Gilded is an extremely fun book that offers the perspective of a Korean-American teen living in a foreign country. It’s also a twist on standard paranormal books, with new monsters and mythical beings. Jae Hwa is a great role model — a strong fighter who’s still unsure she can defeat Haemosu. She’s real and believable. Gilded also has interesting locales, a romance, side characters, and Korean myth and history. After finishing the first book, readers will be eager to dive into the second one, Silvern.” ~ Common Sense Media

SILVERN (Gilded #2)
The power to save. The power to destroy.

ChristinaFarley-Silvern high resJae Hwa Lee has destroyed Haemosu, the dangerous demi-god that held her ancestors captive, and now she’s ready to forget about immortals and move on with her life. Then the god of darkness, Kud, sends an assassin to kill her. She escapes with the knowledge that Kud is seeking the lost White Tiger Orb, and joins the Guardians of Shinshi to seek out the orb before Kud can find it.
But Kud is stronger and more devious than Haemosu ever was. Jae is soon painfully reminded that by making an enemy of Kud, she has placed her closest friends in danger, and must decide how much she can bear to sacrifice to defeat one of the most powerful immortals in all of Korea.

Praise for SILVERN
“Offering enough backstory for new readers to jump right in, Silvern will do well in libraries with demand for high fantasy and strong female protagonists, especially those of Asian decent. Additionally, a small side plot involving a visit to North Korea may interest those who would like to learn more about this closed-off country. Recommended.” ~School Library Journal (SILVERN)

BRAZEN (Gilded #3)
BRAZEN cover

Jae Hwa Lee spent her sixteenth year in Seoul, trying to destroy the evil immortals who had been torturing her family for centuries. The last thing she expected was to be forced to become their assassin. Trapped in the darkest part of the Spirit World as a servant to the Korean god Kud, fighting to keep her humanity, and unable to contact her loved ones, Jae Hwa is slowly losing hope. Kud, god of darkness, will do anything to keep her as a pawn in his quest for power over all of Korea, her entire family thinks she’s dead, and Jae’s true love, Marc, believes she is lost to him forever.

When Kud sends Jae to find and steal the powerful Black Turtle orb, Jae sees an opportunity to break free and defeat Kud once and for all…but first she needs to regain Marc’s trust and work with him to vanquish the darkness that threatens to overwhelm Korea. There’s much to lose as Jae struggles to save the land she’s come to call home.
