it was amazing
Read from June 09 to 16, 2011

Won this ARC on Goodreads..... and I loved, loved, loved it. The descriptions of the palaces, the clothes and the people were amazing. The book was full of rich descriptions of the time and I fell in love with Louis XIV, as everyone else did in the story. I am looking for a sequel already. The characters and time have inspired me to read more about this time and place in history. It is such a difficult subject with so much detail but the story was handled very well with some mystery and love intrigue. It must have been a lot like the young king and court would have actually been like. It is definitely a must read if you have read any of the historical fiction of other kingdoms.
