owenna Winthrop a toujours su qu’elle avait de la magie en elle. Mais bien qu’elle entende des voix dans le vent et qu’elle possède des talents inhabituels, sa mère Mairead pense que Rowenna manque de discipline et refuse de lui enseigner le métier qui assure la sécurité de leur village écossais. Et lorsque Mairead meurt d’une mort sinistre, il semble que la seule chance qu’avait Rowenna de développer son pouvoir se soit éteinte avec elle. Puis, par une nuit de tempête fatidique, Rowenna sauve d’un naufrage un bel étranger nommé Gawen, et sa mère revient miraculeusement d’entre les morts. C’est du moins ce qu’il semble.

La Mairead ressuscitée n’a plus rien à voir avec l’ancienne. Pour cacher sa nouvelle nature monstrueuse, elle transforme les frères de Rowenna et Gawen en cygnes et prive Rowenna de sa voix. Obligée de fuir, Rowenna se rend à Inverness pour trouver un moyen de briser la malédiction. Mais les monstres prennent de nombreuses formes, et à Inverness, Rowenna est bientôt prise dans un réseau d’étrangers qui veulent utiliser sa magie brute à leur propre profit. Si elle veut se sauver et sauver les personnes qu’elle aime le plus, Rowenna devra prendre son destin en main et libérer le pouvoir qui lui échappe depuis si longtemps.


owenna Winthrop has always known there’s magic within her. But though she hears voices on the wind and possesses unusual talents, her mother Mairead believes Rowenna lacks discipline, and refuses to teach her the craft that keeps their Scottish village safe. And when Mairead dies a sinister death, it seems Rowenna’s only chance to grow into her power has died with her. Then, on a fateful, storm-tossed night, Rowenna rescues a handsome stranger named Gawen from a shipwreck, and her mother miraculously returns from the dead. Or so it appears.

The resurrected Mairead is nothing like the old one. To hide her new monstrous nature, she turns Rowenna’s brothers and Gawen into swans and robs Rowenna of her voice. Forced to flee, Rowenna travels to the city of Inverness to find a way to break the curse. But monsters take many forms, and in Inverness, Rowenna is soon caught in a web of strangers who want to use her raw magic for their own gain. If she wishes to save herself and the people she loves most, Rowenna will have to take her fate into her own hands and unlock the power that has evaded her for so long.

“Transportive and beautiful. Each page turned in A Rush of Wings is the smell of salt and the spray of sea water. With lyrical prose and a steadfast protagonist fighting against her world and then some, this is a story forged with strength.”

– Chloe Gong, New York Times bestselling author of These Violent Delights

“Fierce, lush, and lyrical, A Rush of Wings feels simultaneously like a story passed down through ages and something entirely new. A must-read from historical fantasy’s best.”

– Hannah Whitten, author of For the Wolf

Outlander meets an old classic in A Rush of Wings, Laura E. Weymouth’s retelling of the seven swans. Chock-full of cold, coastal atmosphere and ancient magic, Rush also features Weymouth’s signature, a fully-drawn cast of characters who are by turns prickly, stern, deceptive, cruel, and vulnerable. Another success from a brilliant author.”

– Anna Bright, author of The Beholder and The Boundless

– Erica Waters, author of Ghost Wood Song and The River Has Teeth

“Once again, Laura Weymouth’s storytelling is unmatched. Calling to mind childhood fairy-tales and teeming with original interpretation, A RUSH OF WINGS is refreshing blend of nostalgia and unpredictability. Her prose will lift you up on white wings before plunging you from sharp cliffs, and her characters will dazzle against a world framed by history and coloured by magic. There are stories to read and stories to live in – and this is a world readers will never want to leave.”

– Aleksandra Ross, author of Don’t Call the Wolf
