Camille Durbonne gambled everything she had to keep herself and her sister safe. But as the people of Paris starve and mobs riot, safety may no longer be possible...

Big news on Bastille Day!

First, a little backstory. When I started querying agents three years ago *today,* the working title for my manuscript was Enchantée, and to me it captured many crucial aspects of the story. But after the book was published, and as I wrote (and rewrote!) the sequel, my idea of these books began to change. I’d always known the general arc of Camille’s journey, but the more finished the series became, the more I wondered if the titles—especially Liberté—did it jus

There's a synopsis! But the titles have changed, which makes me a little sad. I thought Enchantee and Liberte were a great fit for this series, and kind of made them stand out among lots of other YA books that have titles very similar to these... but 🤷‍♀️ as long as the author likes the new ones, I guess.


No synopsis? Don't care. Loved the first one, will read the second!

... but synopsis, please, would be nice. Thank you. :3

Okay I rarely get mean about these things but I just gotta rant: soooo apparently the author decided to change the titles to this series and honestly.... really? “Everything That Burns”?? I mean I’d rather have the author be happy with her titles but like..... especially with non-matching typography 😬 The one word titles were perfect imo

i’ll just get the ebook lol

Plunging right into this one after re-reading Enchantee left me a little wanting. Although I liked the characters (I liked them enough to continue reading the series, after all), it was missing the charm and the fun of the first book.

This book is an immediate continuation of Enchantee where the French Revolution plays a much larger role. In this world, part of the revolution entails identifying magicians and executing them for being traitors to France. Therefore, Camille has to hide her magic e

The second installment of ENCHANTÈE (ALL THAT GLITTERS) set during the French Revolution, Gita has written another masterpiece to capture a whole story that will captivate your heart, ETB is a truly spellbinding novel with risks, blood, love, suffers, it just makes it an epic fantasy that will immerse yourselves in and never want to leave. I love Gita's style of writing, the elements she puts are so compelling and outstanding, ETB is a beautifully written prose and fascinating crafted plots that ...more

Everything That Burns is one of those rare (and awesome!) books that is better than its predecessor. While I quite enjoyed Enchantée (which is apparently now titled  All That Glitters , in case you want to grab that one), I found this sequel/finale to be more engaging and entertaining, and just a really solid follow up. There were so many elements that I really enjoyed that I am ju
Really gutted I didn't enjoy this one. An alternative history of the French Revolution, magical realism galore? Yes, please!

Camille Durbonne uses her magic for good – if unintentionally. Now that she and her sister, Sophie, are safe from their corrupt brother, Camille lives for the rebellion. Using her father’s treasured printing press, she publishes a series of inflammatory pamphlets that present a powerful exposé of life under the tyranny of the aristocracy. But as her work begins to captivate

A sumptuous and thrilling conclusion to Camille’s story set during the French Revolution.

Camille and her sister Sophie now have a home and money; but many other lost girls are less fortunate. Camille helps a flower girl escape the untrue accusations of a nobleman and meets a group of girls that are about to be evicted. She writes their stories to get them support. Meanwhile, both the king and the revolutionaries are calling for the deaths of magicians like her. Revolutionary Paris becomes even

Everything That Burns returns to revolution in France, where Camille and Lazare are living through the aftermath of the fall of the Bastille. While Camille promises that she’s done with magic, she is tempted to use it for good when she meets a group of young girls fighting to keep their home. Surely just one pamphlet telling their stories couldn’t hurt? Public desire for the persecution of magicians begins to spark and Camille is forced to examine her beliefs about the nature of magic. When Laza ...more

Everything That Burns by Gita Trelease is the sequel to All That Glitters (previous published under the title of Enchantee) is about a young woman with magic who is printing pamphlets for freedom in Paris during the beginning of the French Revolution but begins to question if the cause is truly oriented towards good and not towards mob mentality. This book focuses on the nuance of the French Revolution and the people involved in it. I overall really enjoyed this book especially since one of my a ...more

I must say that I wasn’t disappointed at all, i cant wait for this book to come out tomorrow February 2, 2021 and I get a finished copy. The author does amazing job with this world and with the characters. Camille is still my favorite character.

I was drawn into All that Glitters, book 1 in the Enchantée series, by the dark magic and the glitter of the court of Versailles. I was drawn back for the sequel by Camille, her tough determination to save herself and her sister against all odds.

The mood of Everything that Burns couldn’t be more different from All that Glitters. It’s only weeks since we left Camille, but revolutionary fervor has pamphlets being spread throughout the city and ideas being debated in the papers, in bookstores, and

Everything That Burns is the second book in the Enchantée series by Gita Trelease. A young adult fantasy full of magic and a hint of romance that is sure to keep you turning the pages. Camille is truly inspiring and a powerful heroine. Her decisions are outstanding and so much more grown than in the first part. The author has developed the characters very interestingly. I was pulled in from the beginning and could not put this one down. I had to know what happened next.

First of all, thank you so much to the publisher and Net Galley for an e-ARC of Everything that Burns in exchange for an honest review!

Everything that Burns picks up some time after Everything that Glitters (originally Enchantée). Camille lives with her sister in the mansion and money left to her after her husband's death. But revolution is coming, and when Camille thinks she and magic are done, she begins printing the stories of the girls who are about to lose their home, and it's not just the

I was super excited for the sequel to Enchantée by Gita Trelease and I felt like this follow up was as strong as the first book. The book has a more feminist focus than the debut, re-uniting us with Camille, Sophie and Lazare whilst also introducing new characters in The Lost Girls. In a world where France has ordered all magicians to be killed, Camille must do what she can to survive.

After the events of book one, Camille and Sophie are living in Seguin’s mansion, no longer struggling to find fo

Trelease does it again with this magical beauty. I found myself wholly sucked into this world with Camille and her family and friends. My heart was ripped in shreds as I followed this painfully magic story full of power, revolution, and a reminder that sometimes it’s not enough to be silent and safe, but sometimes you need to fight for what’s right and embrace every aspect of who you are.

Wonderfully done and a series I highly recommend to everybody.

Everything That Burns is exactly what I want in a sequel.

When we left Camille in All That Glitters, it felt as though she had finally be relieved of a great burden. There was a sense of freedom and of hope… but as we enter this new book and whispers of the revolution dance along the streets of Paris… things, somehow,

I was lucky enough to read an early copy of this story and I was thrilled to be back in Camille's world for another magical adventure.

EVERYTHING THAT BURNS is an enchanting YA historical fantasy. Camille now has the things she thought she wanted - a grand house, safety for her and her sister, and a printing press to print her father's revolutionary ideas. However, she seems to be unable to sell his pamphlets, and she is watching Paris go up in flames. The Revolution is taking hold, but it is leaving key people behind. One such group is that of young girls in a home together that is going to be destroyed because it is unsightly ...more

Liberté follows the events of Enchantée, in which the Revolution in France is just beginning. Camille now lives in the Hôtel de Seguin with Sophie, and the reader follows her printing pamphlets to support the beliefs her father instilled in her, while also developing her own beliefs. Trelease interweaves pamphlets throughout the novel, illustrating both Camille's work and the views of society around her. This clever use of form truly drew me into the world, without the need for words or descript ...more

This sequel was confusing for me.
Maybe it's because Enchantée was marketed so heavily as a French Revolution story, but this was not the sequel I was expecting. Enchantée let me down a bit because I assumed we'd experience some of the bloody moments during the French Revolution, and then when I read it, I realized the book served more as an introduction to the guillotine instead of in the midst of it. Though in Enchantée, I adored the writing, trips to Versailles, and the characters, specifical

Enchantee was one of my favorite reads of 2019 and I impatiently waited for the sequel. I was rewarded with a great duology conclusion filled with action, justice, danger and magic.
This book starts right where the first one left off with Camille and Sophie living in Hotel Seguin with the majority of Paris against magicians. The story brought back some of my favorite characters (Lazare, Chand

In this magical reimagining of the French Revolution, the fantastical elements of the first book have given way to the grim complexities of revolt. What were once rumblings of discontent and idealistic debate are now violent mobs and brutal executions.

We find Camille finally doing the printing she longed for in the first book as she tells the stories of "The Lost Girls" living under a bridge in Paris, but the addictive magic she promised to bid adieu might run too deep to dislodge. And what if s
