Publisher's Summary

All sixteen-year-old Tommin wants is to make beautiful shoes and care for his beloved grandmother, 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.

As Lorcan's plans for his "gold-children" are slowly revealed, Tommin and Eve plan their escape. But with Tommin's humanity slipping away, the fate-crossed pair has everything to lose unless they can find a way to outsmart a magical curse centuries in the making.

Whimsical

Gerald Doyle gave a wonderful performance!!!! He has such a lovely rich voice throughout the whole story and the way he brings out the characters to life, one can't help but feel like they are part of the story!!!! The story is lovely too but the Mermaid's Sister is a better story all the way around!!!!

Folking Fantastic!

This is a wonderful folk tale told with equal parts fantasty and humanity. Carrie Ann Noble pulls you into a magical world that overlaps with our own in a wonder-filled way. Gerard Doyle always shines, and really brings out the internal struggle of the protagonist, who is trapped between two worlds.

Aimed at a younger public, but still enjoyable

While I can see this book being more fun to middle schoolers, at 27 I cherished the moments I spent listening to the wonderful Gerard Doyle telling the story of a boy cursed to become a leprechaun.

This book has a fairy tale feel to it, but it's a fresh take on the folklore. I will be sure to check her other book that covers mermaids. What can I say, I'm young at heart and it the story was well told and entertaining! :)

Wonderful Story

The Gold-Son is a wonderful story written in the style of traditional folklore. I very much enjoyed the tale and the narration of the Brilliance Audio production.

Again!

The Mermaid's Sister is one of the best books I have ever read. I was counting down the days until the release of this book and devoured it. Different creative story told just as well as my favorite. I will keep coming back to Carrie Ann Noble. Can't wait for the next book. Truly one of the smartest fantasy writers out there. Also loved the touch of the Irish narrator. Really added to the performance of the story. Very worth the wait. So pleased.
