Hello! A am so excited to be a part of A Golden Fury blog tour. The cover of this book is absolutely stunning and the story is one to be remembered. Lets get started!
While combing through her mother’s notes, Thea learns that there’s a curse on the Stone that causes anyone who tries to make it to lose their sanity. With the threat of the French Revolution looming, Thea is sent to Oxford for her safety, to live with the father who doesn’t know she exists.
But in Oxford, there are alchemists after the Stone who don’t believe Thea’s warning about the curse—instead, they’ll stop at nothing to steal Thea’s knowledge of how to create the Stone. But Thea can only run for so long, and soon she will have to choose: create the Stone and sacrifice her sanity, or let the people she loves die.
I wanted to read this book because the synopsis reminded me of An Affair of Poisons. If you are a fan of it then you will most likely love this book. Mothers who go crazy, subtle romance, and a ton of alchemy. The first half of the book was absolutely amazing and had so much action and plot twists. In fact the first chapter drew me in so much that I read this in one sitting.
The main character has a lot of ignorance for being so smart about alchemy. She doesn’t want the philosophers stone for power but instead to impress and hopefully fix her mother who went mad. This fact drives most of the plot.
If you are a fan of historical fantasy then this absolutely for you. Plus enjoy the cover. Maybe put this one face out on your shelf.
