Waiting on The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

I'm interested to read...

The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

Publisher: Razorbill
Series: The Glittering Court, Book One
Publication Date: 5 April 2016
Pre-Order: Amazon | The Book Depository | Dymocks Australia

A dazzling new fantasy series set in a mix of Elizabethan and frontier worlds that’s dripping with romance from Richelle Mead, #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy.

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. . .
(summary from Goodreads)


"A mix of Elizabethan and frontier worlds that's dripping with romance", oh, yes please. They know how to get my attention, right? I'm sure this one has been a popular choice lately. It's definitely being added to my TBR list. 

What upcoming release has you intrigued? Will you read The Glittering Court?

    1. I've not read a lot of her books. I started her Vampire Academy series but then got spoiled and so never continued. I haven't read her Bloodlines series because of that either. But I recently loved her standalone, Soundless. And I do love the sounds of this one. :-D Thanks, Jessica.
