Day’s YA – ENCHANTÉE

Welcome to the final Day’s YA post of 2018!

Read on for magic, deception, and hot air balloons! And see you all back here in 2019!

ENCHANTÉE by Gita Trelease
9781250295521
Ages 12 to 18
Available February 5, 2019 from Flatiron Books and Macmillan Young Listeners

In order to provide for her chronically ill sister and to escape an abusive thieving brother, Camille uses forbidden magic to transform herself into Cécile Descharlots, Baroness de la Fontaine. As the Baroness, Camille swindles wealthy young Versaille aristocrats out of their precious coins. The glamorous palace life and the attention of a handsome hot air balloon inventor are intoxicating—but the line between her two disparate lives begins to blur as the French Revolution ignites around her.

 


ENCHANTÉE is a Cinderella-esque story with more layers than Marie Antoinette’s cakes. The stakes are high, the magic system is unlike that of any other YA fantasy, and the descriptions of Paris and Versailles are simply enchanting. The cast of characters that Camille encounters are equally humorous and maddening, and their obsession for excess and luxury juxtaposes perfectly with the poverty experienced by Camille’s family.

Paris, 1889: In this city, no one keeps tabs on secrets better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier, Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance. To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin will need help from a band of experts. Together, they’ll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt the artifact through the dark and glittering heart of Paris.

“Chokshi shines as a master storyteller in her newest novel; the setting, world building, plot, and conflict are all staggering. However, the elements that perhaps shine the most are the history, riddles, mysteries, and science, woven together in a world brimming with power and magic.”—Booklist, starred review
