Title: The Glittering Court (The Glittering Court #1)
Author: Richelle Mead
Published Date: April 5th 2016
***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Big and sweeping, spanning from the refined palaces of Osfrid to the gold dust and untamed forests of Adoria, The Glittering Court tells the story of Adelaide, an Osfridian countess who poses as her servant to escape an arranged marriage and start a new life in Adoria, the New World. But to do that, she must join the Glittering Court.
Both a school and a business venture, the Glittering Court is designed to transform impoverished girls into upper-class ladies who appear destined for powerful and wealthy marriages in the New World. Adelaide naturally excels in her training, and even makes a few friends: the fiery former laundress Tamsin and the beautiful Sirminican refugee Mira. She manages to keep her true identity hidden from all but one: the intriguing Cedric Thorn, son of the wealthy proprietor of the Glittering Court.
When Adelaide discovers that Cedric is hiding a dangerous secret of his own, together they hatch a scheme to make the best of Adelaide’s deception. Complications soon arise—first as they cross the treacherous seas from Osfrid to Adoria, and then when Adelaide catches the attention of a powerful governor.
But no complication will prove quite as daunting as the potent attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. An attraction that, if acted on, would scandalize the Glittering Court and make them both outcasts in wild, vastly uncharted lands…
***Melanie – #NerdGirlVamp’s Review***
I LOVE the Vampire Academy series and so when I got the opportunity to review the first book in the new series by Richelle Mead I jumped at the chance and I wasn’t disappointed.
Fans of the VA series will immediately feel at home with the writing and the characters are immediately relatable even in this more historical setting. I knew straight away what I wanted to happen and Richelle didn’t let me down.
This was a very quick, easy read, and I look forward to returning to the Glittering Court very soon. A very solid 4 stars from me!
