Enchantee

(2019)
A novel by

 
 
A compellingly beautiful tale of magic, intrigue and deception, set against the backdrop of 18th-century Paris on the cusp of revolution.

Paris in 1789 is a labyrinth of twisted streets, filled with beggars, thieves, revolutionaries - and magicians....

When 17-year-old Camille is left orphaned, she has to provide for her frail sister and her volatile brother. In desperation, she survives by using the petty magic she learnt from her mother. But when her brother disappears Camille decides to pursue a richer, more dangerous mark: the glittering court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

Using dark magic Camille transforms herself into the 'Baroness de la Fontaine' and presents herself at the court of Versaille, where she soon finds herself swept up in a dizzying life of riches, finery and suitors. But Camille's resentment of the rich is at odds with the allure of their glamour and excess, and she soon discovers that she's not the only one leading a double life....

Enchantee is a compelling historical fantasy and is Gita Trelease's debut novel.

Genre: Young Adult Romance

"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
