Belle Revolte by Linsey Miller is a YA, LGBT Fantasy out now!
“Emilie des Marais is more at home holding scalpels than embroidery needles and is desperate to escape her noble roots to serve her country as a physician. But society dictates a noble lady cannot perform such gruesome work.
Annette Boucher, overlooked and overworked by her family, wants more from life than her humble beginnings and is desperate to be trained in magic. So when a strange noble girl offers Annette the chance of a lifetime, she accepts.
Emilie and Annette swap lives—Annette attends finishing school as a noble lady to be trained in the ways of divination, while Emilie enrolls to be a physician’s assistant, using her natural magical talent to save lives.
But when their nation instigates a frivolous war, Emilie and Annette must work together to help the rebellion end a war that is based on lies.”
In this magical YA Fantasy story, we are thrown into a world of swapped places and charged rebellions. The two main characters want different lives for themselves and strive for self discovery while also battling through the war outside.
This book dives into gender roles through diverse scenerios, so if you love stories that have a strong focus on these traits, you will absolutely love this one! And the world building creates a fantasy world you can’t put down.
I gave this one a solid 4 out of 5 stars. It was fairly entertaining and encompasses a unique, strong story!
