Love. Magic. Revolution...Gita Trelease's debut fantasy about an orphaned girl who uses dark magic to save her sister and herself from ruin is "a soaring success" (NPR)!

Paris is a labyrinth of twisted streets filled with beggars and thieves, revolutionaries and magicians. Camille Durbonne is one of them. She wishes she weren't...

When smallpox kills her parents, Camille must find a way to provide for her younger sister while managing her volatile brother. Relying on magic, Camille painstakingly transforms scraps of metal into money to buy food and medicine they need. But when the coins won't hold their shape and her brother disappears with the family's savings, Camille pursues a richer, more dangerous mark: the glittering court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

Using dark magic forbidden by her mother, Camille transforms herself into a baroness and is swept up into life at the Palace of Versailles, where aristocrats both fear and hunger for magic. As she struggles to reconcile her resentment of the rich with the allure of glamour and excess, Camille meets a handsome young inventor, and begins to believe that love and liberty may both be possible.

But magic has its costs, and soon Camille loses control of her secrets. And when revolution erupts, Camille must choose - love or loyalty, democracy or aristocracy, reality of magic - before Paris burns.

Genre: Young Adult Romance

Praise for this book

"Enchantée is a sparkling, decadent confection of a book, one with a hidden bite. Its sumptuous and evocative Paris has magical depths that will enthrall you. Be careful. Once you start reading, you won't stop until the final page." - Jessica Cluess

"Enchantée is truly enchanting: a sumptuous, slow burn of a book that builds to an exciting conclusion. This is a book to be savored: from the rich, detailed descriptions of Paris on the brink of revolution; to the witty repartee and tender romance; to the dark, dangerous thread of magic woven through this wonderfully vivid world that Gita Trelease has crafted. I didn't want it to end!" - Rosalyn Eves

"Deliciously addictive. Enchantée is a lit firework crackling with treacherous magic, decadent romance, and disguises that take on lives of their own. I adore this gorgeous book." - Stephanie Garber

"An intoxicating blend of opulence, magic, intrigue and romance. Gita Trelease deftly balances a spellbinding story of desperation and deceit on the precipice of the epic revolution that changed history. Camille's tale wrapped around me as entrancingly as her magical gown. J'étais enchantée par ce livre." - Alwyn Hamilton

"A heady, sparkling dream of a book. I tumbled head over heels into Enchantée's dark and sumptuous magical Paris and wanted to stay there forever. One of the best fantasies I've read in years." - Margaret Rogerson

"Enchantée is an utterly beguiling spell that lingers long after the final page." - Laura Sebastian
