Olivia Prior a grandi à l’école pour filles Merilance, et tout ce qu’elle a de son passé est le journal de sa mère – qui semble se perdre dans la folie. Puis, une lettre invite Olivia à rentrer chez elle, à Gallant. Pourtant, lorsqu’Olivia arrive, personne ne l’attend. Mais Olivia n’est pas prête à quitter le premier endroit qui lui semble être sa maison. Peu importe que son cousin Matthew soit hostile ou qu’elle voie des goules à moitié formées hanter les couloirs.

Olivia sait que Gallant cache des secrets, et elle est déterminée à les découvrir. Lorsqu’elle franchit un mur en ruine au bon moment, Olivia se retrouve dans un endroit qui est Gallant, mais qui ne l’est pas. Le manoir s’écroule, les goules sont solides et un personnage mystérieux règne sur tout. Olivia voit maintenant ce qui a démêlé des générations de sa famille, et d’où vient peut-être son père.

Olivia a toujours voulu avoir sa place quelque part, mais prendra-t-elle sa place en tant que Prieur, protégeant notre monde contre le Maître de la Maison ? Ou prendra-t-elle sa place à ses côtés ?

V. E. Schwab, auteur à succès du New York Times, signe un roman vivant et luxuriant qui s’attaque aux démons qui sont souvent enfermés derrière des portes closes. Une saga étrange et autonome sur la vie, la mort et la jeune femme attirée par les deux. Les lecteurs de Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, Melissa Albert et Garth Nix se perdront rapidement dans ce roman qui s’adresse à tous les âges.

Olivia Prior has grown up in Merilance School for Girls, and all she has of her past is her mother’s journal—which seems to unravel into madness. Then, a letter invites Olivia to come home to Gallant. Yet when Olivia arrives, no one is expecting her. But Olivia is not about to leave the first place that feels like home; it doesn’t matter if her cousin Matthew is hostile, or if she sees half-formed ghouls haunting the hallways.

Olivia knows that Gallant is hiding secrets, and she is determined to uncover them. When she crosses a ruined wall at just the right moment, Olivia finds herself in a place that is Gallant—but not. The manor is crumbling, the ghouls are solid, and a mysterious figure rules over all. Now Olivia sees what has unraveled generations of her family, and where her father may have come from.

Olivia has always wanted to belong somewhere, but will she take her place as a Prior, protecting our world against the Master of the House? Or will she take her place beside him?

New York Times–bestselling author V. E. Schwab crafts a vivid and lush novel that grapples with the demons that are often locked behind closed doors. An eerie, stand-alone saga about life, death, and the young woman beckoned by both. Readers of Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, Melissa Albert, and Garth Nix will quickly lose themselves in this novel with crossover appeal for all ages.

“A bone-chilling standalone… which fuses Shirley Jackson’s gothic horror sensibilities with the warmth and dark whimsy of Neil Gaiman.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Gripping worldbuilding, well-rounded characters, and fantastic horror.”Kirkus Reviews, starred review 

“Unsettling and intriguing.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review

“A haunting and beautifully tilled garden of darkness, V. E. Schwab’s Gallant unearths the shadows—webs of family history, the price of deadly bargains, and the secrets we guard—plunging readers into a triumphant tale that can’t be missed.” —Dhonielle Clayton, New York Times–bestselling author

“Seeking a place to call home, Olivia uncovers long-buried secrets after arriving at Gallant… Olivia unravels the ominous secrets of both her family and the house, where ghouls lurk around every corner and the dilapidated garden gate calls to her. The evolving relationships between Olivia and her found family shine, and themes of freedom, the self, and belonging are well depicted… The gripping writing and effective incorporation of horror elements, including haunting, inky artwork, are satisfyingly spine-tingling.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Olivia is elated to receive a letter from her uncle Arthur, inviting her to come live at Gallant, the Priors’ estate. Upon arriving, however, Olivia learns that Arthur is dead, and neither her ill-tempered cousin, Matthew, nor the manor’s kindly caretakers are expecting her… [But] she’s determined to uncover the truth regarding her family’s past in this place. Evocative prose, eerie [black and white] artwork by Šumberac, and superbly rendered characters… elevate this affective, bone-chilling standalone from Schwab, which fuses Shirley Jackson’s gothic horror sensibilities with the warmth and dark whimsy of Neil Gaiman.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Fourteen-year-old Olivia is grateful, if a little shocked, when she receives a letter from a previously unknown uncle inviting her to his manor estate, Gallant… This story strikes just the right balance between menace and melancholy, and the undercurrent of grief running beneath the suspense and horror brings emotional nuance and deep sympathy for each character… Schwab’s exquisite prose is rich…A surefire hit… [for] any reader looking for a dark read on a stormy night.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

“When a letter arrives at Merilance inviting Olivia to come to Gallant, a mysterious old home, she may finally have found the family she’s always wanted… Schwab nestles this story of heritage and hope into rich, evenly paced prose. Readers of character-driven literary fiction will be mesmerized by this darkly magical tale… [Gallant] will appeal to all her audiences.” —Booklist

“Schwab uses a blend of Gothic, fantasy, and horror to create an unsettling story that reads like a cautionary folktale to beware the shadows… There is so much grief in this story: over losing family, home, and the way things were… A must-buy for… [fans of] Holly Black, Neil Gaiman, Emily Lloyd-Jones, and other authors of creepy and unnerving tales.” —School Library Journal

“[When] a letter arrives from a hitherto-unknown uncle, welcoming Olivia back home to the family estate… she discovers a mirrored world where a Death-like demon reigns, making knights of his shadows and sucking the life out of every living thing… Olivia is a stalwart and sympathetic heroine, whose actions occasionally defy the rules of the house but never those of the heart. Bittersweet, gripping, and with atmosphere to spare, Schwab’s latest gothic tale is exactly the right mix of dark and delightful.” —Horn Book Magazine
