The Glittering Court

by: Richelle Mead

Release date: April 5th, 2016

Synopsis: (from goodreads)

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. . . .

Why am I waiting on it?

I loved the title of this book the first time I read it, and the cover captured my interest as well. But the synopsis really sold it for me. It seems that this book has the potential to be an epic, sweeping period-like drama. I’m seeing visions of extravagant dress and court life with secrecy, lies, and romance mixed in. Can’t wait to give it a try!


  1. I’m so excited for this!! I love Richelle Mead so much 😍 I’ve read all of her books: Succubus Blues, Dark Swan, Gameboard of the Gods, VA, and Bloodlines – plus I’m currently reading Soundless. This sounds so amazing! Ugh, Richelle Mead is queen
