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.
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
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)
