I’m delighted to welcome Andy C. Perez to KT Literary as my newest client. I fell head over heels for Andy’s YA fantasy, THE GILDED HEIRS. A Latinx romventure set in a fantastical version of the Dominican Republic and Colombia, THE GILDED HEIRS is a delightful exploration of identity, belonging and colonization, following a thief and her unlikely allies on their quest to find the mythical city of gold, El Dorado.
More on THE GILDED HEIRS below:
Ten years after her parents were murdered by General Tobal, Sofia finally gets her hands on the map they died for. Joined by Tobal’s two children, Sofia sets out across the sea in search of the lost city of El Dorado and its legendary riches, but nestled among the forests and mountains is more than just treasure. Hidden behind a golden veil lies a thriving civilization, free of would-be invaders and ruled by a family Sofia never knew she had, who can bend the world’s rarest metal to their will. But General Tobal is tight on her heels and won’t stop until the whole world kneels at his feet. To stop him, Sofia must learn to understand a magic she can’t control. Or watch the man who took everything from her steal it all for a second time.
Andy is a YA Fantasy writer creating stories with Latinx protagonists. Born and raised in Washington Heights, New York City, she now lives in Austin, Texas with her adorable demon dog Bingsu and is working on becoming a trophy wife and best selling novelist.
