The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
Book #1 in The Glittering Court trilogy
Expected Publication Date: April 5, 2016
Synopsis: For a select group of girls, the Glittering Court offers a shot at a life they’ve only ever dreamed of, one of luxury, glamour, and leisure. To high-born Adelaide, whose wealthy family is forcing her into a loveless marriage, the Glittering Court represents something else: the chance to chart her own destiny, and adventure in an unspoiled, prosperous new land across the sea.
After a chance meeting with the dazzling Cedric Thorn, Adelaide poses as a servant to join the crop of impoverished girls he promises to transform into proper ladies. But her familiarity with upper class life comes with a price: she must hide her identity from her new friends, mysterious refugee Mira and fiery former laundress Tamsin, and most importantly, from Cedric himself—even though she’s falling in love with him.
Everything begins to crumble when Cedric discovers Adelaide’s ruse, and she catches the eye of a powerful young governor, who wants her for a wife. She didn’t leave the gilded cage of her old life behind just to become someone else’s property. But nothing is as daunting—or as wonderful—as the potent, forbidden attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. One that, if acted on, would make them both outcasts in a wild, dangerous, uncharted world, and possibly lead them to their deaths.
Richelle Mead is my favorite author and she wrote my favorite series, The Vampire Academy. I’m so excited to read this one, though I will admit, the synopsis doesn’t sound all that appealing to me. It’s been getting compared to The Selection and I have no idea how I feel about that. I feel like this one will be better than it sounds and I have all the faith in the world in Richelle. Plus, I really love that cover.
