#BookReview: Everything That Burns (Enchantée #2) by Gita Trelease






Synopsis: Magic. Betrayal. Sacrifice

Camille Durbonne gambled everything she had to keep her and her sister safe, and now the Vicomtesse de Seguin seeks a new life in Paris. But revolution roils the bloody streets and “aristocrat” is a dangerous word. Safety may no longer be possible.

Following in her father’s footsteps, Camille prints revolutionary pamphlets, sharing the stories of girls.

My Review: This was a great story with layers of romance and a wonderful story. Fight for the revolution and join your side as you go on an adventure of a lifetime! I am so glad that looks like we have another story on the way.  I need more!! I loved how this one turned out and can not wait to see where this story leads.  







Review

Praise for All That Glitters (previously published as Enchantée):

NPR Best Book of the Year
Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Pick
Book of the Month Club Pick

“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“Romance and fantasy readers will enjoy the magic realism, ruse and tension of Camille's double identity, authentic historical references, and Camille's daring, passionate spirit.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.” ―SLJ, starred review

“Set against the burgeoning throes of revolution, this immersive drama makes brilliant use of its conceit, suggesting that the decadent opulence of the French nobility was maintained by a fragile illusion that depended on the abject sorrow and blood of the French people. The period detail is exquisite, with Camille’s family situation and the inclusion of the problems surrounding the development of the hot-air balloon (Camille falls for an aeronaut) enabling readers to see what daily life was like for various classes of people as well as what new technologies were on the horizon. Fans of substantial historical romance as well as fantasy will be thoroughly enchanted.” ―The Bulletin

“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.” ―Booklist

“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. A thrilling account of love, passion, and adventure.” ―Literary Review (UK)

“A triumph that should keep young readers enthralled to the meticulously plotted end.” ―The Telegraph (UK)

“Deliciously addictive, this book is a lit firework crackling with treacherous magic, decadent romance, and disguises that take on lives of their own.” ―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

“A heady, sparkling dream of a book: one of the best fantasies I’ve read in years.” ―Margaret Rogerson, author of An Enchantment of Ravens
