"Narrator Justine Eyre helps transport listeners to prerevolutionary France and the intrigues of Louis XVI's court...Period details, some romance, and an exciting ending create a satisfying listen." — AudioFile Magazine Love. Magic. Revolution... 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. Praise for Enchantée: "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, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval “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, New York Times bestselling author of An Enchantment of Ravens "Enchantée is a soaring success. I can think of no more satisfying way to fly across the years and enjoy a gilded view of Paris as it never was but could have been, with a little magic." — NPR

Love. Magic. Revolution...

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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Narrator Justine Eyre helps transport listeners to prerevolutionary France and the intrigues of Louis XVI's court. AudioFile Magazine
“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. Alwyn Hamilton, New York Times bestselling author of the Rebel of the Sands trilogy
“Narrator Justine Eyre helps transport listeners to prerevolutionary France and the intrigues of Louis XVI’s court…Eyre’s aristocratic accent, mixed with French, sets the atmosphere for this Cinderella story. Eyre provides dramatic tension, capturing Camille’s constant fear of being revealed as an imposter, the gentry’s easy disregard for commoners, and the sinister motives of a fellow gambler. Period details, some romance, and an exciting ending create a satisfying listen.” AudioFile
“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, author of Caraval
