THE GLITTERING COURT – Richelle Mead’s newest series

Richelle Mead, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Vampire Academy series, is back with a brand-new, THE GLITTERING COURT, where she’s traded vampires for the politics of the royal court for a thrilling listen.

We follow the wealthy Adelaide, who wants so desperately to escape from a loveless marriage that she disguises herself as a servant for the chance to join the mythical Glittering Court. According to the dazzling Cedric Throne, here, impoverished girls are transformed into to proper ladies at the court. However, beneath the glamour lies another hidden world that they never expected.

Narrator Kristen Sieh is fantastic. She manages to capture the upper class lit of Adelaide as well as the many accents and phrasings of the other characters, giving them all their own distinguishable voice. It’s quite enjoyable, hearing her smooth voice discuss the makeup of the court, only to slip into a more sinister accent to show that not all is as it appears.

If you’re looking for the chance to hear the enchanting tale of a young woman who refuses to follow society’s commands, this is the perfect listen for you.
