The Court of King Clovis DuFresne, The Year of Light 2525. Gabriella Bergeron is about to enter a new phase in her life. she would have to fulfill the task she was chosen to do and Michel Auclair, Personal Trainer, would help her carry it out.
this novella is set in the distant future but it seems that nothing much has changed with how the world looked in this little corner of the universe. people continue to live in abject filth and poverty beyond the walls of the King's chateau. corruption, tyranny and abuse are still part and parcel of power hungry individuals like King Clovis.
amidst all the despair and evil, a handful of men led by the Sun King, Michel and his closest friend Beaufort LeBlance are resolute in ending the present monarchy's reign and reforming the status quo. unknown to them, Brie has her own agenda too.
aside from graphic sexual situations, there are references to perverted acts so this book is definitely for mature readers. though this was a fast short read, i felt that certain elements were not thoroughly developed. for instance, the Sun King who made a brief and sudden appearance also disappeared as fast as the events that unfolded towards the end of the story. i think his character, origins, plans, etc. should have been more explored.
i also have no idea if there is a sequel to this book. whether Brie and Michel's story will continue or not is something i do not really look forward to right now but it would have been great if author Jill Noelle brought closure to some of the characters as she did for Brie and Michel.
