"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

"Romance and fantasy readers will enjoy the magic realism, ruse and tension of Camille's double identity, authentic historical references, and Camille's daring, passionate spirit. A must-have." --School Library Journal, starred review

"An immersive, glittering debut that intriguingly blends history and fantasy. A striking examination of power, privilege, and choice in a limited world makes Trelease a new voice to watch." --ALA Booklist

"Set against the burgeoning throes of revolution, this immersive drama makes brilliant use of its conceit. Fans of substantial historical romance as well as fantasy will be thoroughly enchanted." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"An extended riff on Charles Perrault's version of the Cinderella tale, this is an ambitious, rich and absorbing debut, featuring intrigues, balloons, midnight games of hide-and-seek among the fountains at Versailles. Gita Trelease's Enchantée is a fine teen novel that deals with concealment and identity: the young characters experiment, hiding and revealing secrets, as France tries to forge a new path. This is a thrilling account of love, passion and adventure." --Literary Review (UK)

"A triumph which should keep young readers enthralled to the meticulously plotted end." --The Telegraph (UK)

"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, author of A Shadow Bright and Burning

"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, author of Blood Rose Rebellion

"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

"Air balloons and intrigue, magic and mayhem, all in a sumptuous Paris on the verge of revolution--a delight from beginning to end." --Alison Goodman, author of The Dark Days Club

"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, author of Rebel of the Sands

"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, author of An Enchantment of Ravens

"Enchantée is an utterly beguiling spell that lingers long after the final page." --Laura Sebastian, author of Ash Princess
