Publisher Description

Inspired by Moulin Rouge! and set on an island in a magical version of Prohibition-era New York, Revelle is a breathtaking YA stand-alone fantasy full of dazzling magic, romance, and mystery from debut author Lyssa Mia Smith.

On the island of Charmant, magic flows like bootlegged champagne, and fantasies can be bought for the price of a gemstone.

Luxe Revelle, star of her family’s fantastical show, knows the splendor is just an illusion. With Prohibition threatening their livelihood, her family struggles to make a living, watering down champagne and patching holes in their sequined costumes. So when the son of Charmant’s wealthiest family makes her an offer—everything the Revelles need to stay in business, in exchange for posing as his girl and helping him become mayor—she can’t refuse.

The moment Jamison Port sets foot in Charmant, he can’t shake the feeling of familiarity. An orphan with as few memories as gemstones, he’s desperate to learn what happened to his parents. But as he delves into the island’s secrets, he risks angering the wrong person and discovering a truth that just might break his heart.

When Luxe and Jamison accidentally meet, the sparks that fly are more than her magical enchantments. But keeping secrets from powerful people is a dangerous game . . . one that could destroy them both.

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This book did the damn thing!! 👏🏼👏🏼”
“First of all, the magic system in this book was really interesting. I enjoyed the concept of jewels being the monetary exchange that happened, and how giving the jewel over to a Revelle gave them the power to manipulate your feelings. I liked how there was a cost to the magic, as it created the sense of balance and utilization of that power in a way that the person had to weigh the consequences before the execution. The book paced well, and I did love how the family came together near the end to take on the burden Luxe carried since she was 11. The idea of the story was intriguing but I did feel like the ending kind of rushed things and I felt like I still had some unanswered questions. I didn’t understand the significance of Jamieson being the catalyst for Luxe’s power in every timeline. I expected a big reveal regarding that connection and it didn’t seem to come together well in the end. I wasn’t truly sold on Luxe’s and Jamieson’s relationship, as well as I didn’t feel like I was fully satisfied with Dewey’s reveals. Overall it was an okay book, but I don’t think like I will think about the story now that it’s complete or feel compelled to recommend it.”
