Est et Ouest. Humains et Esprits. Breccans et Tamerlaines. L’île de Cadence s’est toujours maintenue, ainsi que ses habitants, dans un équilibre précaire. Mais aujourd’hui, Bane, l’esprit du vent du nord, a poussé tout le monde et tout ce qui se trouve sur son chemin à dévier dans le but de dominer les humains et les esprits.
À l’est, une maladie se propage dans les vergers et touche les membres du clan Tamerlaine. Sidra, leur guérisseuse, cherche désespérément un remède tandis que son mari Torin, le nouveau chef du clan, tente d’obtenir des réponses des esprits. Mais les humains n’ont jamais été conçus pour marcher longtemps parmi les élémentaires, et plus il s’aventure dans leur royaume, plus le clan et lui-même se perdent.
Dans l’Ouest, Adaira a du mal à s’adapter au mode de vie plus brutal des Breccans. Le clan et les esprits souffrent sous le commandement de Bane, dont la puissance croissante se ressent à chaque coup de vent. Alors que l’île est de plus en plus déséquilibrée, Jack décide de reprendre sa harpe et de franchir la ligne du clan, non seulement pour retrouver Adaira, mais aussi pour élucider un sinistre mystère qui lui permettrait de vaincre Bane et de restaurer la paix sur l’île. Cependant, personne ne peut défier le Vent du Nord sans payer un prix, et le sacrifice requis cette fois-ci pourrait bien être le plus grand que Torin et Sidra puissent supporter de payer.

East and West. Humans and Spirits. Breccans and Tamerlaines. The Isle of Cadence has always held itself and its residents in a tenuous balance. But now Bane, the spirit of the North Wind, has pushed everyone and everything in his path off-kilter in a bid to claim dominion over human and spirit alike.

In the East, a sickness is spreading through the orchards, affecting the people of the Tamerlaine clan. As their healer, Sidra desperately searches for a cure while her husband Torin, the clan’s new leader, attempts to draw answers from the spirits. But humans were never meant to walk for long amongst the elementals, and the deeper he strays into their realm, the further lost he and the clan become.

In the West, Adaira finds it hard to adjust to the more brutal way of life that the Breccans embrace. Both the clan and the spirits suffer beneath Bane’s command, whose growing power can be felt in every gust of wind. With the island falling further out of balance, Jack decides to take up his harp and cross the clan line, to not only reunite with Adaira but to unravel a sinister mystery that would grant him the knowledge to defeat Bane and restore peace to the isle. Yet no one can challenge the North Wind without paying a price, and the sacrifice required this time may just be the ultimate one.Torin, and Sidra can bear to pay.

Reviews

“This novel is richer and better than the first in the series, building on and adding to the deep elemental world that Ross has constructed and supported by well-forged, believable relationships and friendships. The twists are compelling, the narrative developments are well paced, and the way everything comes together is satisfyingly neat while still feeling unexpected. Ross has skillfully brought her duology to an exciting and emotional end.” — Booklist (starred review)

“Ross creates a magical story with lyrical prose that draws the reader into the tale and its setting. Recommend this series to fans of Jeffe Kennedy, Susanna Clarke, and Terry Brooks.” — Library Journal

“Ross has built a fully realized world clearly inspired by Scottish myth and legend and thick with heroes. . . A rich fantasy of bards and bairns in which the magical island setting becomes the main character.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on A River Enchanted

“Vividly imagined . . . This will appeal to lovers of fantasy from Name of the Wind to the Earthsea series.” — Publishers Weekly on A River Enchanted

“With lush worldbuilding and lyrical prose, A River Enchanted feels like the echo of a folktale from a world right next to our own.” — Hannah Whitten, New York Times bestselling author of For the Wolf

“An alluring and rich tale, at once a fast-paced mystery and a love story as warm as a hearth. Like music, it will bewitch your senses, carrying you to the wind-swept hills and effervescent waters of the isle of Cadence. A River Enchanted made me homesick for places I’ve never been. This is a classic in the making.” — Ava Reid, internationally bestselling author of The Wolf and the Woodsman

“A sublime mix of romance, intrigue and myth, A River Enchanted is a stunning addition to the canon of Celtic-inspired fantasy. With its lyrical prose and tight world building, this story is both modern and timeless, drawing from the traditions of genre greats like Steven Lawhead and marrying them to the sensibilities of modern works like Genevieve Gornichec’s The Witch’s Heart and Tana French’s In the Woods.” — BookPage (starred review) on A River Enchanted
