I liked The Vine Witch. I may have turned a blind eye to its flaws because I was in the right mood for a slower, cozier read. Once its standalone sequel, The Glamourist, appeared on my NetGalley feed, I grabbed a copy and started reading.

The book focuses on Yvette Lenoir, an orphaned, untrained witch, pursued for a murder she has committed as a young girl. She wants to discover her ancestry and learn magic. After confronting her adoptive mother, she receives a mysterious book that gets her into

*received a free copy from netgalley for honest review* I waited what felt like forever to read The Vine Witch so when I saw this was "read now" for me on netgalley I knew I had to get it!! I'll admit I wasn't sure where this book was going to go but I really loved the direction it did! I read this book pretty quickly because I just didn't want to put it down so I plan on rereading it in a few months but great book! great series!
Rosie Rizk
In an alternate early twentieth century France, witches live and work, mostly unnoticed by the blind mortals. A young woman yearns to learn more of her witch heritage, yet is stymied by having to run and hide from the law. Another young woman is given an ultimatum. In order to keep her witch license, she must turn in her fellow witch to the authorities. When their fates intertwine, they're led on a magical journey of discovery.

I received an advanced copy of The Glamourist, after expressing my eager anticipation for its release. I thoroughly enjoyed The Vine Witch and The Glamourist was book two in the series.

Although the same characters exist in both books, The Glamourist is a book that can stand alone and is not dependent on The Vine Witch. Exciting new characters were introduced and created new heroes and antagonists to further energize the story, which was a new story from the first book.

What I love best about

I really loved The Vine Witch and was so excited to be able to get an advanced copy of The Glamourist. When I read The Vine Witch I sped through it in one afternoon and was happy for things to end there. While I did end up enjoying The Glamourist, it was by no means as interesting to me as The Vine Witch. It took me a good 25-30% to get pulled into the book and at that point I was in and out of interest. It took me longer than normal to read which caused to be very annoyed very easily in ...more

I absolutely adored The Vine Witch. Loved it. So when I had the opportunity to receive and arc of its sequel from the author, of course I took it. The Glamourist picks up a few months after the events of The Vine Witch. This time we find our characters not in the vineyards, but in Paris. This story is about Yvette. Suddenly trapped within the city limits by a stolen wish, Yvette needs to learn about her past to find herself and her magic and only then will she be free. By fate or design Elana is ...more

I read "The Vine Witch" and it was a wonderful book. And "The Glamourist" is the second book of "The Vine Witch" series. Elna Boureanu is the vine witch of Chateau Renard and is to be married to the owner, John Paul. Yvette and jinni witch, Sidra were in prison with Elena in the Vine Witch and now Yvette longs to uncover where she came from and how to use her magical powers. Elena and John Paul are in the city to meet his mother and don't realize Yvette is in the city too.

I was gifted an ARC of The Glamourist by the author to review. Thank you !

This is the second book in The Vine Witch series.
I love the Vine Witch, it is on my favourite book list. So I was very excited to dive back into this world

The Glamourist picks up where The Vine Witch left off. This time focusing on both Elena and Yvette. Their fates have been joined due to a stolen wish! While helping Yvette find out who she is Elena discovers more about herself.
I love this book and devoured it. The

First off I didn't even realize this was next book in the vine witch series. Oh I loved it. This one I would have thought would be more about Elena tinkering with her blood for poison, but I was happily surprised that we get to follow one of her old jail buddy, Yvette. When she accidentally steals a wish to find out who she and her mother truly is with the help of Elena and some old buddies of the two. I was definitely surprised by what she was.

This is the second book in the series. Although I didn't read the first, I had no problem following the plot.

Taking place in Paris, the book follows Yvette as she searches for a way to access her witch powers. Aided by several characters, it becomes a journey of self discovery.

I loved the book. The plot was interesting. The characters came alive. It is a beautifully written, entertaining fantasy.

I was given an advance copy of this book and I am giving my honest opinion.

Brush strokes of magic paint a luminous story filled with Parisian glamour and redemption in the sequel to 'The Vine Witch.'

'The Glamourist' is a remarkable journey about the golden threads that bind people together. It follows Yvette, who must discover her magical lineage in order to awaken her dormant powers. With only a black cat and a mysterious grimoire to help her, along with Elena- The Vine Witch and a troupe of outré characters, the journey of self-discovery becomes a matter of

This is the sequel to The Vine Witch. I really liked The Vine Witch and I have really enjoyed the sequel! Will there be another? I really liked that again the romance was part of the story not the main focus.. The Glamourist involves the same characters moving on in their lives in different ways but being brought together again in ways that were not the norm. The battles are new and different. It was easy to get into and flowed well. There is Elena who has to face the gifts handed down from her ...more

Let me start out by saying I have not read 'The Vine Witch', so I jumped into this story knowing I've probably missed some vital context.

That being said...
Luanne G. Smith paints a beautiful picture with the flow of her writing. Right away I was sympathetic to Elena's situation and Yvette's plight and that alone made me want to continue reading. Immersing myself into the world of the story felt easy...almost natural, perhaps that was because it's a second book in the series and the world building

A fun story of magic and intrigue split between Elena, the vine witch from the story of that name, and Yvette, a girl with an unknown magical history. We met Yvette briefly in The Vine Witch during Elena's time in prison but this story takes place in Paris and focuses on both women. I enjoyed the magic and characters. Though not entirely required, it would be good to read The Vine Witch first to get a better feel for the world of the stories. This novel picks up where the first left off and did ...more

In the Vine Witch, we are introduced to Elena & John Paul. Elena worked as a Vine Witch (good) whose parents were potion witches (bad). In the witch world you can't change your lines& are generally assigned to do whatever your parents did. Witches have lots of laws .. or maybe because they are French.
In the last book, Elena was helped by witches Yvette (from a carnival), and a jinni witch named Sidra.
This book has two main story lines. The first is Elena in Paris trying to have her

The Glamourist was easy to step into without a refresher on the first book and is a fine story, the characters lively, the villain dastardly...but, unfortunately, it lacked the charm that made the first book a standout.
