A Golden Fury: A Novel
The Philosopher’s Stone is the one thing all alchemists search for. Thea Hope wants nothing more than to create the stone with her mother, but just as they are getting close, her mother locks her out of the lab. The only thing worse is the fact that as the weeks pass, her mother goes mad, leaving Thea to journey to a father she knows nothing about. The stakes are high as others begin to go mad, but no one believes Thea when she says the stone is cursed. Thea wants to create the stone, too, but is it worth the cost of her life?
I hated many of the characters, but they were made to be that way. A couple managed to redeem themselves, and one became one of my favorites. For the most part, each character was different and not flat. The climax to the story was a well-foreshadowed twist that made sense but wasn’t obvious. I was sad to see the book end. In some ways I wish it had ended a little different, but it wrapped everything up in a satisfying way.
