{Wattys 2018 Winner - The Contemporaries} Versailles, France 1787: Where the only things more prevalent than opulence and wealth, are secrets.

After the gruesome death of his older sister, the young French courtier, Gabriel de la Marche, swears to save his surviving little sister from the same life of corruption and deceit. And during one fateful rain-drenched night on the streets of Paris, his answer comes in the form of an organization of assassins bent on bringing the French Court to its knees....

Told from the perspectives of a young man fighting to protect people he loves, the French Court's seemingly perfect golden boy, an English courtier with a deadly secret of her own, and a wild female assassin with a thirst for blood, this is the story of romance, passion, betrayal, and one too many glasses of champagne under the sparkling chandeliers of Versailles.

Vive la France!

Amazing start! I love Gabriel, I love the elements a out his character and context you worked in, and I’m curious to learn his reasons for becoming an assassin.

What are that names ? I'm French but I know that it was used during the 16e-17e century. But they 2nd first name is too much
                               However, it's a very very good story.
