I always get a little nervous about girly novels about the Queen....after all we know, at least some of us, so much about her now....we'll see. If its' historically faultless and has some new things to say, why not? But so much has been said...

I read the trailer...there is a sentence which reads:

"Why must it be me? When I am so clearly inadequate to my destiny?"

Is that english?

Can one be inadequate to a destiny? Shoud it not be "inadequately equipped to fulfil my destiny"?

What are your thoughts? Anyway it bodes ill...

I read an advanced copy of the book and I really loved it. Which was surprising, since the last new Marie Antoinette book I read ("The Bad Queen" by Carolyn Meyer) was disappointing for me.

I posted a review here: http://vivelaqueen.blogspot.com/2011/06 ... l#comments

I admit I am a tad nervous to see where Juliet Grey goes with Axel Fersen in the second and third books, though.
