Danica planned to use beauty, blackmail, and a glittering drug to control her own fate. Her escape from the twisted world of the Palace of Versailles was perfectly orchestrated and paid for. Or so she thought.

Betrayed by the man who had promised her freedom, Dani is now married to the murderous King. It's a terrifying position to be in...and yet it's oddly intoxicating. Power may be an even stronger drug than Glitter--a drug Dani can't resist, in the form of secrets, manipulation, and sabotage.

In her new position at the head of the court, Dani must ask herself who she really is. Can she use her newfound power to secure her real love, Saber's freedom and a chance at a life together outside the palace? Or is being Queen too addictive to give up? 

My Review: Being Queen could grow on Dani. Only a few chapters in and she is using her power well. Getting the freedom for the one she loves by blackmailing to use her votes on another. The King will have to keep his eye on Dani, she is quite brilliant and is learning just what being Queen really entails.

Dani and Saber can have their time together with meaning while she's out there faking her love with the King for all others to see. As long as things go smoothly, there should be nothing to stop her from having her way.

Overall I'm excited for how this book turned out. I wasn't a fan of the first book, but since I'm a fan of the author's other books, I decided to give this one more shot and it was worth it!
