Gold is wealth. Wealth is power. Power is a curse. 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 From author Annie
Sullivan comes A Touch of Gold, the untold story of the daughter
King Midas turned to gold, perfect for fans of Cinder and The Wrath
and the Dawn.
