Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Emerald Sea by Richelle Mead, which I am so very excited for!

I was chosen to promote Midnight Jewel, which happens to be one of the few sequels I read that didn’t let me down, woooo! I adore Mira’s character, so I was thrilled to read a book from her perspective, and I definitely got the badass character I was excited about! So today, I have a moodboard for you all about Midnight Jewel! 

Midnight Jewel by Richelle Mead
Series: The Glittering Court #2
Published by Razorbill on June 27, 2017
Pages: 416

In MIDNIGHT JEWEL, Richelle Mead goes beyond the glitz and glamour of the Glittering Court, delving into the dark, political underbelly of Cape Triumph through the eyes of one girl who dares to fight for her freedom.

A refugee of war, Mira was cast out of her home country and thrust into another, where the conditions were inhospitable at best. In a life-altering twist of fate, she is given the chance to escape once more, and she takes it, joining the Glittering Court.

Both a school and a business venture, the Glittering Court is designed to transform impoverished girls into upper-class ladies who appear destined for powerful and wealthy marriages in the New World. There, Mira finds herself subjected to persecution, not only from her fellow Glittering Court jewels, but from her suitors, as well—men she would potentially be expected to give her life to.

By day, she goes through the motions, learning the etiquette and customs that will help to earn her anonymity, even making a couple true friends in the process, the forthright ladies’ maid Adelaide and the ambitious laundress Tamsin. But by night, Mira hatches a different plan entirely—one that, if exposed, could get her hanged in the highest court of Adoria.

MIDNIGHT JEWEL is the extraordinary story of a girl with few options who courageously forges a new path, finding love, passion, lifelong friendships, and maybe even a way to freedom.

  1. I keep saying I’m going to give this series a go, because I love Mead’s Vampire Academy/Bloodlines series, but I still haven’t. The description doesn’t entice me that much, and I’m not the biggest fan of series that switch character focus every book. My favorite gem is Morganite 🙂
