Jack Tamerlaine n’a pas mis les pieds sur Cadence depuis dix longues années, se contentant d’étudier la musique à l’université du continent. Mais lorsque des jeunes filles commencent à disparaître de l’île, Jack est rappelé chez lui pour aider à les retrouver. Les enchantements sont profonds sur Cadence : les ragots sont portés par le vent, les châles à carreaux peuvent être aussi solides qu’une armure, et le moindre coup de couteau peut inspirer une peur insondable. Les esprits capricieux qui gouvernent l’île par le feu, l’eau, la terre et le vent trouvent leur compte dans la vie des humains qui y vivent. Adaira, héritière de l’est et ennemie d’enfance de Jack, sait que les esprits ne répondent qu’à la musique d’un barde, et elle espère que Jack pourra les attirer par la chanson, les incitant à ramener les filles disparues.

Alors que Jack et Adaira travaillent ensemble à contrecœur, ils découvrent qu’ils sont meilleurs alliés que rivaux et que leur partenariat se transforme en quelque chose de plus. Mais avec chaque chanson qui passe, il devient évident que le problème avec les esprits est beaucoup plus sinistre qu’ils ne le pensaient au départ, et un secret plus ancien et plus sombre sur Cadence se cache sous la surface, menaçant de les détruire tous.

Avec des personnages inoubliables, une intrigue rapide et un univers fascinant, A River Enchanted est une histoire émouvante de devoir, d’amour et du pouvoir d’un véritable partenariat, et marque l’entrée brillante de Rebecca Ross sur la scène de la fantasy pour adultes.


Jack Tamerlaine hasn’t stepped foot on Cadence in ten long years, content to study music at the mainland university. But when young girls start disappearing from the isle, Jack is summoned home to help find them. Enchantments run deep on Cadence: gossip is carried by the wind, plaid shawls can be as strong as armor, and the smallest cut of a knife can instill fathomless fear. The capricious spirits that rule the isle by fire, water, earth, and wind find mirth in the lives of the humans who call the land home. Adaira, heiress of the east and Jack’s childhood enemy, knows the spirits only answer to a bard’s music, and she hopes Jack can draw them forth by song, enticing them to return the missing girls.

As Jack and Adaira reluctantly work together, they find they make better allies than rivals as their partnership turns into something more. But with each passing song, it becomes apparent the trouble with the spirits is far more sinister than they first expected, and an older, darker secret about Cadence lurks beneath the surface, threatening to undo them all.

With unforgettable characters, a fast-paced plot, and compelling world building, A River Enchanted is a stirring story of duty, love, and the power of true partnership, and marks Rebecca Ross’s brilliant entry on the adult fantasy stage.
