So Many Books… So Little Time!

by Annie Sullivan

Rating: 3 out of 5.

During one of my many bargain hunts at Mardels Bookstore, I came across this unique and wonderful retelling of King Midas’ daughter who as a young girl was turned to gold.


I don’t typically read fantasy/adventure novels, but was captivated by the beautiful design of the cover and the book did not disappoint!
If you enjoy fantasy/adventure, this is definitely a book you will want to add to your collection.

“Because as it turns out, the rumors are wrong—my heart isn’t made of gold. It’s very soft and very alive. And now it’s shattered.”

– A Touch of Gold

A touch of gold

SUMMARY:

After King Midas’s gift—or curse—almost killed his daughter, he relinquished The Touch forever. Ten years later, Princess Kora still bears the consequences of her father’s wish: her skin shines golden, rumors follow her everywhere she goes, and she harbors secret powers that are getting harder to hide.

Kora spends her days concealed behind gloves and veils. It isn’t until a charming duke arrives that Kora believes she could indeed be loved. But their courtship is disrupted when a thief steals treasures her father needs to survive. Thanks to Kora’s unique ability to sense gold, she sails off on her quest to find the missing items.

Magic, mythology, fantasy, and pirate adventures charge through every page as Kora learns that not everything is what it seems—not her companions, not the thieves, and not even Kora herself.
