Waiting on Wednesday: The Glittering Court


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
Release Date: April 5, 2016

I have yet to go wrong with one of Richelle Mead's books.  I loved her Vampire Academy series and I just picked up a copy of Bloodlines.  I will have to stay current with her Glittering Court series while I work my way through the Bloodlines series.

The Glittering Court (The Glittering Court, #1)Goodreads Overview: 

Big and sweeping, spanning 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 capable of arranging 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 later, 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. . . .

  2. Saw this the other day and I immediately wanted it. If Ellen Page and Emma Watson had a child, the cover model would be her. LOL!

  6. Not heard of this one, and not really read much from this author, I never made it though the first VA book. It's on my shelf to try again at some time. :)

    1. You should definitely give VA another try. There was a lot of world building the first half of book 1, but after that all of the books were quick reads for me.
