The Gold-Son

Carrie Anne Noble

The Gold-Son

All sixteen-year-old Tommin wants is to make beautiful shoes and take care of his granny, but his insatiable need to steal threatens to destroy everything. Driven by a curse that demands more and more gold, he's sure to get caught eventually.

When mysterious Lorcan Reilly arrives in town with his "niece," Eve, Tommin believes the fellow wants to help him. Instead, Lorcan whisks him off to the underground realm of the Leprechauns, where, alongside Eve, he's forced to prepare to become one of them. While Lorcan plots to use his "gold-children" as stepping-stones to the throne of the Leprechaun king, Tommin and Eve plan their escape. But Tommin's humanity is slipping away, and unless they find a cure for the curse, he'll be doomed to spend eternity as a thieving trickster.
