About the Book

Decadent, thrilling, and romantic, this Black Mirror-esque retelling of the reign of one Marie Antoinette is perfect for fans of The Belles and American Royals.

The year is 3070, and Marie Antoinette has just arrived at the glittering, thrilling palace of Versailles to marry the shy, soft-spoken Louis-Auguste.

But beneath the luxurious world lies a sinister underbelly and an uncompromising elite who want to keep Marie and Louis pawns in a deadly game.

Will history repeat itself? Or will these doomed lovers outwit their enemies and escape their grisly fate?

Cake Eater will take readers to a dazzling world full of breathless luxuries, deadly secrets, and a thrilling romance that attempts to rewrite history itself.  

Critical Praise

"Cake Eater's cyberpunk reimagining of Marie Antoinette whisks you into the dazzling neon-lit world of far future Versailles only to peel back layer after layer of unnerving truths. A bittersweet story about one girl's struggle against the tragic cycles of human greed and human history."  — Xiran Jay Zhao, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Iron Widow

"Viciously sharp, Cake Eater is part-mystery, part-thriller, and part rom-com. Biting and unflinching, Cake Eater is unlike any YA book I have ever read." — Lillie Lainoff, author of One for All

“The slow blossoming of the royal romance will break readers’ hearts… Intriguing and imaginative.” — Kirkus Reviews
