***WARNING*** This book is a work of ALTERNATE HISTORY and borderline HORROR with depictions of graphic violence. If you are looking for a straight retelling of Marie Antoinette's story, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.
In 1770, fourteen-year-old Austrian archduchess, Maria Antonia, left her homeland to marry the most sought after prince in Europe. Upon stepping into France she became Dauphine Marie Antoinette and assumed a fairytale life would follow.
But being the Queen of France is not all masked balls, beautiful dresses, and extravagant living. There are horrifying and unnatural forces at work behind the scenes, a mysterious plague causing a sinister transformation in the residents of Paris. When Marie Antoinette learns the details, she is stunned to find out that France has kept the secret for over two hundred years, and now she will be burdened with one of her own.
Determined to be the obedient daughter of the iron-willed Holy Roman Empress, she agrees to fulfill her commitment to the French Crown, until she unexpectedly falls for the handsome Swedish count, Axel von Fersen. Torn between her husband and her true love, her duty and her desire, Marie Antoinette longs for the day when she can be free to choose her path and follow her heart.

Another great book my Ginger Myrick. I just finished the book. I admit I didn't know anything about Marie Antoinette. This is an alternative history but a great read. It makes me want to find out more about the history of France in the time of Marie Antoinette. I have read all of Ginger's books and have loved them all. Can't wait for the next one. Keep up the great work Ginger.
