#BookReview: The Gold-Son by @noblebat #Giveaway

This title will be released on June 20, 2017.
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—and find themselves falling in love. But Tommin’s humanity is slipping away, and unless Eve discovers the remedy in time, he’ll be doomed to spend eternity as a thieving trickster.

Can Tommin and Eve’s love survive over two centuries and help them defeat Lorcan and his magic, or is there no hope of breaking the Leprechaun’s curse?

This one was ok. Although it was noted as a Young Adult novel, it's another one that starts out sounding like a middle-grade read. This one is another one that I would tell you not to read the synopsis if you haven't done so.  It gives way to much away and pretty much sums up the story for you the reader. I felt through reading this book that I already knew what was going to happen.  And for the most part, I did. All thanks to that blurb.  There were a few twists and turns that kept the story moving at a good pace, the characters although fully formed were lacking that spark to make them feel truly alive to me.  This is one if your looking for a book to bridge the gap between high Middle-grade titles to low Young-Adult titles then pick this one up. It was a good fantasy with romance, action, and Leprechauns.
