Le clerc errant Chih des Collines Chantantes se rend dans les Riverlands pour enregistrer les récits des célèbres artistes martiaux quasi-immortels qui hantent la région. Sur la route de Betony Docks, ils rencontrent deux jeunes femmes loin de chez elles, et un couple plus âgé qui est plus qu’il n’y paraît. Alors que Chih fonce tête baissée dans une ancienne querelle, ils se retrouvent bien plus impliqués dans l’histoire des Riverlands qu’ils ne le pensaient.


Wandering cleric Chih of the Singing Hills travels to the riverlands to record tales of the notorious near-immortal martial artists who haunt the region. On the road to Betony Docks, they fall in with a pair of young women far from home, and an older couple who are more than they seem. As Chih runs headlong into an ancient feud, they find themself far more entangled in the history of the riverlands than they ever expected to be.

Praise for Into the Riverlands

“A thrilling, wuxia-style addition to the series.”―BuzzFeed News

“A delicious bonbon of a novella about stories and their unreliable narrators, who wink at their listeners (or readers), fully expecting us to catch on.”―The Wall Street Journal

“Spellbinding. . . . Vo expertly weaves myths and histories of this fantastical land throughout, while also offering readers a deeper understanding of Chih themself, a character who may have been left as a framing device in lesser hands. The result is a pitch-perfect series installment.”―Publishers Weekly, (starred review)

“Rides the knife edge between telling a story and being in the middle of it and explores how tales become legends. . . . Highly recommended for . . . anyone who likes high fantasy inspired by Imperial China or wuxia movies and stories.”―Library Journal (starred review)

“The novella is written in Vo’s rich, lovely language, and it’s nice to have such a wonderful fantasy series be totally accessible in standalone volumes. . . . Fans of folklore-inspired fantasy will eat this one up.”―Booklist

Praise for the Singing Hills Cycle

“Gorgeous. Cruel. Perfect.”―Seanan McGuire

“A quiet, wrenching tale of resistance, resilience, and court intrigue.”―R. F. Kuang

“A stunning feminist fantasy.”―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“An epic in miniature, beautifully realised.”―Zen Cho

“At once epic and intimate, this story of revenge, power and the weight of history is a small, masterful jewel.”―Aliette de Bodard

“Resides in the intimate margins of its (beautifully imagined) world’s history, portraying how the marginalized may yet shape those narratives and harness the power of stories.”―Indra Das
