Publisher's Summary

The final installment in Richelle Mead's sweeping, enthralling Glittering Court series answers the trilogy's biggest question: What is the secret that drives Tamsin to win at all costs?

Tamsin Wright is unstoppable. She must become the Glittering Court's diamond: the girl with the highest test scores, the most glamorous wardrobe, and the greatest opportunities to match with an elite suitor in the New World. Training alongside other girls in the Glittering Court, Tamsin immerses herself completely in lessons about etiquette, history, and music - everything a high-society wife would need to know. Once she's married, she'll be able to afford a better life for her family, so the sacrifice is worth it if she can be the best.

When her friendship with Mira and Adelaide, her roommates at the Glittering Court, threatens her status as the top-ranked prospect, she does the only thing she knows will keep her on track: She cuts them out of her life. But when her voyage across the sea goes off course, Tamsin must use her unrelenting grit and determination to survive the harsh winter far north of her intended destination in hopes of making it back to the Glittering Court in time to secure a proposal - and a comfortable future for her family.

Experiencing new cultures and beliefs for the first time, Tamsin realizes that her careful studies haven't prepared her for everything, and with new alliances formed with roguish tradesman Jago Robinson and good-natured minister Gideon Stewart, Tamsin's heart begins to be pulled in different directions. But she can't let her brewing attraction get in the way of her ultimate goal: protecting the secret she holds closest to her heart, the one that would unravel everything she's worked for if it's uncovered.

Excellent reader, excellent story

This is my favorite book of the series. I didn’t think it could top Midnight Jewel, which I loved, but it surpassed it! I adored Tamsin’s story. I will re-read it many times in the future, I am sure! The reader is excellent and I loved hearing all of the voices brought to life in such an imaginative way! 5 stars for sure.

whisper voice is creepy

It being read completely in a whisper voice was completely bizarre. good thing it was a decent enough story to try and get past it.

Great Series! I wish there were more books!

I loved it. I am a huge Richelle Mead fan. This series was totally different than Vampire Academy or Bloodlines. All of her books have a flgrest flow to them for me. In some ways this one is my favorite, but there is no match to a love like Rose and Dimirti for me.

Not as good as the others

I was excited to get to book three but it wasn't exciting as I'd hoped. The story starts to drag with meaningless details and the plot gets confusing with so many new parties involved. I can barely remember who is who and what is what and why it matters. Tamsin is likable and relatable but the rest of the characters are one dimensional. I couldn't bring myself to care about the them or the rest of the plot because they're random outsiders with problems that have little to do with her needs. The tie-in toward the end could've been smoother if the characters were more interesting. Instead it felt like the story was dragging on too long with filler details. There were ideas here but I felt like it wasn't well executed.

Amazing end to the series

I loved this - it’s the third book in he glittering court series, I was so excited to hear Tamsin’s story and it was just as good as I’d hoped! We really get to know her character well and follow all the things that happened to her (and her journey is so eventful!). I would recommend this if you like historical / ya fiction and romance, and there’s also lots of interesting twists in it too. The romance was great. Narrated so well. Just amazing 💜
