Hello my fellow bookworms!✨
I’ve never participated in a blog tour before, so you can imagine my reaction when Wednesday Books actually reached out to me of all people and offered me the chance to participate in the blog tour for A Golden Fury!!! Ahhhh it’s such an honor.🥺
I haven’t read the book yet, with my unfortunately cramped schedule, but I so can’t wait to try out Samantha Cohoe’s debut novel!
Hope you enjoy this tour stop! Now……let’s begin.
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Historical Fiction.
Expected Publication: October 13, 2020 by Wednesday Books.
Set in eighteenth century England, Samantha Cohoe’s debut novel, A GOLDEN FURY, follows a young alchemist as she tries to save the people she loves from the curse of the Philosopher’s Stone. The streets of London and Oxford come to life as this historical fantasy unravels. Weaving together an alluring story of magic and danger, Samantha’s debut has her heroine making messy decisions as she toes the line between good and evil while it becomes blurred.
Thea Hope longs to be an alchemist out of the shadow of her famous mother. The two of them are close to creating the legendary Philosopher’s Stone—whose properties include immortality and can turn any metal into gold—but just when the promise of the Stone’s riches is in their grasp, Thea’s mother destroys the Stone in a sudden fit of violent madness.
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.
A GOLDEN FURY and the curse of the Philosopher’s Stone will haunt you long after the final page.

This was a lot of fun. So thankful to Wednesday Books again for giving me this opportunity!
