Subtlety is not a virtue in a series that adopts a powerfully feminist sensibility amid jarringly modern vernacular. (I doubt “Wham, bam, thank you ma’am” was part of anyone’s vocabulary back then.) Purists will scoff, though others might enjoy the sight of folded paper doves flying through an opulent Versailles, containing vile rumors like an early form of Twitter. With spies at every keyhole, do these not-quite-lovebirds stand a chance?
