My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It’s modern day outside the palace of Versailles. Inside, the people act like it’s the eighteenth century with the added bonus of technology. A lot of girls dream to be betrothed to the king but Danica isn’t one of them.
The novel follows Danica Grayson, who witnessed a murder done by the king. Her mother, knowing what she witnessed, found it a great chance to sell her daughter to the king. She had no way out until she discovered about Glitter–a drug so powerful, even a pinch can make a person addicted. With the drug, she can make more money than she ever dreamed. That could help her escape.
Falling with a drug dealer outside the palace, it’s one risk she had to take. But secrets are hard to keep inside the palace of Versailles.
I give the book 4.5 out of 5 stars! The book was an amazing read. I was interested till the end! I love everything about it–the characters, the setting, the plot and the theme. It’s very inventive! It has a creative mixture of the past and the future. The author worked with both elements so great! It mixed very well with the concept of the book. The scene transitions went really smooth.
I love the characters best. They’re vivid–the emotions were conveyed clearly. As for the plot, I like it. The scenes and the cause were explained well enough to keep the readers aware of what they need to know. Add to that, the story was unpredictable! I didn’t expect that the book would end with such an ending! It was shocking and I can hardly process that I already finished the book. Indeed a great read!
