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.

Outside the palace walls, it’s modern day. Inside the gates of Versailles, i’s the eighteenth century (with a few key technological advancements that make it easy to track the inhabitants). Seventeen-year-old Danica Grayson is just a low titled girl of the court, until the night she witnesses a murder. Thrown into a world of blackmail, Dani finds herself betrothed to the dashing—and dangerous—king. She will marry him on her eighteenth birthday . . . unless she finds a way to buy her freedom first.

Enter Glitter. A powerful and expensive drug that can be laced into a pot of rouge or lip gloss. Dealing the happy-inducing makeup to the ladies of the court is easy. Keeping secrets, avoiding the childish and murderous nineteen-year-old king, and not falling in love with a drug dealer who lives outside the palace walls is impossible.
