EDIZIONE SPECIALE: CONTIENE UN ESTRATTO DEL NUOVO ROMANZO Un nuovo romanzo dopo il successo di Il diario proibito di Maria Antonietta Scandali reali, tradimenti e bugie: la storia della più chiacchierata regina di Francia Parigi, 1774. Alla tenera età di diciotto anni, Maria Antonietta ascende al trono di Francia accanto al marito, Luigi XVI. La giovane regina è bella, elegante e raffinata, ha un sorriso ammaliante, occhi lucenti, una pelle bianca come la porcellana e capelli di un delizioso color biondo fragola. A Versailles tutti ne ammirano il portamento e l’incedere leggiadro ma, sotto gli sfarzosi abiti di seta e le vertiginose acconciature, Maria Antonietta è una donna inquieta e fragile come tante altre. Il re è assente e poco incline a soddisfare i desideri della consorte e la giovane regina comincia a condurre una vita spensierata e stravagante, fatta di balli in maschera, giochi d’azzardo e spettacoli teatrali. Si circonda di uomini frivoli e senza scrupoli, di cortigiani e dame che la intrattengono e la distraggono e così diventa presto protagonista di scandalosi pettegolezzi. La dinastia dei Borbone è quanto mai discussa e invisa al popolo: dal Nuovo Mondo inizia a soffiare il vento della libertà ed echi di minacce in grado di spazzare via la monarchia fanno tremare gli animi soprattutto all’interno delle lussuose mura di Versailles... Il ritratto di una delle principesse più spregiudicate e ribelli della storia Inchinatevi alla più affascinante regina di Francia «L’ultima regina di Francia racconta, attraverso la penna dell’autrice, la vita di corte, gli amori e la sua tragica fine.» Donna Moderna «Quelli di Juliet Grey sono romanzi di scorrevole lettura, supportati da una rigorosissima struttura storica.» Il Tempo «Come sarà stata la giovinezza di un’arciduchessa?

Imagine that, on the night before she is to die under the blade of the guillotine, Marie Antoinette leaves behind in her prison cell a diary telling the story of her life—from her privileged childhood as Austrian Archduchess to her years as glamorous mistress of Versailles to the heartbreak of imprisonment and humiliation during the French Revolution. Carolly Erickson takes the reader deep into the psyche of France's doomed queen: her love affair with handsome Swedish diplomat Count Axel Fersen, who risked his life to save her; her fears on the terrifying night the Parisian mob broke into her palace bedroom intent on murdering her and her family; her harrowing attempted flight from France in disguise; her recapture and the grim months of harsh captivity; her agony when her beloved husband was guillotined and her young son was torn from her arms, never to be seen again. Erickson brilliantly captures the queen's voice, her hopes, her dreads, and her suffering. We follow, mesmerized, as she reveals every detail of her remarkable, eventful life—from her teenage years when she began keeping a diary to her final days when she awaited her own bloody appointment with the guillotine.

A novel for fans of Philippa Gregory and Michelle Moran, Confessions of Marie Antoinette blends rich historical detail with searing drama, bringing to life the first years of the French Revolution and the final days of the legendary French queen. Versailles, 1789. As the burgeoning rebellion reaches the palace gates, Marie Antoinette finds her privileged and peaceful life swiftly upended by violence. Once her loyal subjects, the people of France now seek to overthrow the crown, placing the heirs of the Bourbon dynasty in mortal peril. Displaced to the Tuileries Palace in Paris, the royal family is propelled into the heart of the Revolution. There, despite a few staunch allies, they are surrounded by cunning spies and vicious enemies. Yet despite the political and personal threats against her, Marie Antoinette remains, above all, a devoted wife and mother, standing steadfastly by her husband, Louis XVI, and protecting their young son and daughter. And though the queen secretly attempts to arrange her family’s rescue from the clutches of the rebels, she finds that they can neither outrun the dangers encircling them nor escape their shocking fate. Advance praise for Confessions of Marie Antoinette “Juliet Grey brings her trilogy on Marie Antoinette’s life to a triumphant finale, depicting with sensitivity and compelling vividness the collapse of a bygone glamorous world and the courageous transformation of its ill-fated queen.”—C. W. Gortner, author of The Queen’s Vow “A heartfelt journey with Marie Antoinette in her wrenching last days . . . We see the end looming that is still veiled from her eyes, and knowing her hopes are in vain makes it all the more poignant. Far from the ‘let them eat cake’ woman of legend, Juliet Grey’s Marie Antoinette reveals herself to be a person we can admire for her courage, her loyalty, and her love of her family and her adopted country, France.”—Margaret George Look for special features inside.

OH, WHAT A TANGLED WEB... Everything should have been quiet and pleasant for Ben Holiday, the former Chicago lawyer who became sovereign of the Magic Kingdom of Landover. But it wasn't. Horris Kew, conjurer, confidence-man, and trickster, had returned to Landover from Ben's own world. Alas, Horris had not returned of his own volition--he had been sent by the Gorse, a sorcerer of great evil, whom Horris had unwittingly freed from the magic Tangle Box, where it had long ago been imprisoned by the fairy folk. Now it had returned to enslave those who had once dared condemn it. But first, it would rid Landover of all who could stand in its way... Soon Ben found himself imprisoned within the gloom of the Tangle Box, lost in its mists and its labyrinthine ways. The only one who could free Ben from the Tangle Box was the lady Willow. But she had disappeared, was gone from Landover on a mysterious mission of her own.... From the Paperback edition.
