We are super excited to be a part of the BLINK Summer Reading Tour! We are showcasing A Touch Of Gold by Annie Sullivan so let's get this show on the road!


Publisher: BLINK
Release Date: August 14, 2018
Genres: Young Adult Fiction -- Mythology, Retelling


King Midas once had the ability to turn all he touched into gold. But after his gift—or curse—almost killed his daughter, Midas 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 locked in the palace, concealed behind gloves and veils, trying to ignore the stares and gossip of courtiers. It isn’t until a charming young duke arrives that Kora realizes there may be someone out there who doesn’t fear her or her curse. But their courtship is disrupted when a thief steals precious items from the kingdom, leaving the treasury depleted and King Midas vulnerable. Thanks to her unique ability to sense gold, Kora is the only one who can track the thief down. As she sails off on her quest, Kora learns that not everything is what it seems—not thieves, not pirates, and not even curses. She quickly discovers that gold—and the power it brings—is more dangerous than she’d ever believed.

Midas learned his lesson at a price. What will Kora’s journey cost?

Can I start by asking when does the second book come out?!?! This retelling of King Midas surpassed all my wildest expectations and then some. This spin was written rather creatively and I found myself enjoying this adventure full of pirates, first loves, and curses. I will tell you that I was shocked and caught off guard by some startling revelations and I eagerly await with anticipation for the next book. Kudos to this author's storytelling and spell weaving as I fell in love with the web she spun.

I give this read:
