The Glittering Court
Book #13 Read in 2016
The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
This is the seemingly first book in a new series by the author of such hits as the Vampire Academy series and Soundless. In this book, young Lady Whitmore is being matched up for marriage by her grandmother and she is not given much say in the matter. When an opportunity to take over the identity of one of her maids presents itself, she cannot resist and she becomes Adelaide. She joins the Glittering Court, where maids and such girls are taught lessons in etiquette and academics in order to make them a better level of bride. The girls then head to a different land, where bachelors of many stations will contract them as brides. Adelaide falls in love with one of the company man, which is not in the cards. But their love is not without serious obstacles....will they ever be able to be together? This was a good read, with interesting characters, romance, humor, action and neat settings. I enjoyed it. I was sent this book by Amazon Vine in exchange for a honest review.
