A Curse of Gold | Book Review + Giveaway


Curses and queens. Pirates and kings. Gods and magic. The final saga of a princess cursed by Midas’s touch, a vengeful Greek god, and a dazzling kingdom in the balance.

After barely surviving thieving, bloodthirsty pirates and a harrowing quest at sea to retrieve her stolen treasure, Kora finds readjusting to palace life just as deadly. Her people openly turn against her, threatening to overthrow her as heir to the throne due to fear of her magical powers. When Dionysus puts out a challenge to kill the girl with the golden touch and burn down her kingdom, it’s not just her future on the throne in danger. Kora’s life and entire kingdom are now on contract.

With no other choice, Kora sets out to find Dionysus, journeying to the mysterious disappearing island of Jipper. If she wants to save her kingdom and have any chance at reversing her father’s curse, she will have to enter into a deadly game with Dionysus, the greatest trickster the world, or the underworld, has ever seen.

If you love fantastical and mythological adventures, you do not want to skip A Curse of Gold (and the duology’s first book, A Touch of Gold) from Annie Sullivan!

As the daughter of King Midas, Kora has been cursed by his golden touch. For the sake of her throne and her kingdom, she must find a way to reverse this curse—but of course, to do so is no easy task. She must find Dionysus, a complicated quest that has her facing danger at every turn.

I so enjoyed adventuring with Kora (and friends) once again. A Curse of Gold complements A Touch of Gold perfectly, and I cannot imagine reading one without the other. I highly, highly recommend reading the complete duology (especially now that it can be so easily binged)—the characters, the drama, the mythology are all sure to captivate and intrigue from beginning to end.


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Annie Sullivan grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. She received her Masters degree in Creative Writing from Butler University. She loves fairytales, everything Jane Austen, and traveling. Her wanderlust has taken her to every continent, where she’s walked on the Great Wall of China, found four-leaf clovers in Ireland, waddled with penguins in Antarctica, and cage dived with great white sharks in South Africa.
