What grabbed my attention when I read about this book on Netgalley was the quote:
"From #1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike comes a truly original new novel—Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette in a near-future world where the residents of Versailles live like it's the eighteenth century and an almost-queen turns to drug dealing to save her own life."
What could beat a novel that put together Breaking Bad with Marie Antoinette? In my mind nothing! And I had to read this book!
So the beginning started a little slow to me and didn't get going until she does in fact decided to sell drugs to escape a crazy engagement to the crazy king. Not to mention a little romance it thrown in at that point too. I couldn't put the book down after that. And it's not fair that this is a series, the ending set up the next book and I loved it so much I hated it. I can't wait for the next book.
