Ileth, quatorze ans, a grandi dans un orphelinat et, en raison de son bégaiement, on ne pensait pas qu’elle serait destinée à autre chose qu’à faire la cuisine et le ménage. Mais elle a toujours rêvé de servir avec les dragons depuis sa rencontre avec un dragon argenté étincelant et sa dragonne. Pendant des années, elle attend, et dès qu’elle est en âge de s’engager, Ileth s’enfuit pour devenir dragonneau novice dans l’ancienne forteresse humano-dragon de la Serpentine.

Alors que la plupart de ses compagnons d’apprentissage sont issus de familles riches et influentes, Ileth doit se battre pour se faire une place dans le monde, même si cela implique un duel avec son patron à la table des mangeurs de poissons. Elle est ensuite envoyée chez les danseurs de dragon après un baiser stupide avec un garçon au nom célèbre et on lui confie la responsabilité d’un vieux dragon malade au passé mystérieux. Mais elle découvre que ces épreuves n’étaient rien lorsqu’elle doit prendre la place d’un dragonnier décédé et s’occuper de son dragon emprisonné sur les terres ennemies…..


Fourteen-year-old Ileth grew up in an orphanage, and thanks to her stutter was never thought to be destined for much beyond kitchen work and cleaning. But she’s dreamed of serving with the dragons ever since a childhood meeting with a glittering silver dragon and its female dragoneer. For years she waits, and as soon as she is old enough to join, Ileth runs away to become a novice dragoneer at the ancient human-dragon fortress of the Serpentine.

While most of her fellow apprentices are from rich and influential families, Ileth must fight for her place in the world, even if it includes a duel with her boss at the fish-gutting table. She’s then sent off to the dragon-dancers after a foolish kiss with a famously named boy and given charge of a sickly old dragon with a mysterious past. But she finds those trials were nothing when she has to take the place of a dead dragoner and care for his imprisoned dragon in enemy lands….

“Stunning. . . . Stories are rarely as powerful or as skilfully crafted as The Centaur’s Wife. The novel is as grand a book as you are likely to read this year, a story of impossibilities delivered with a calm, steady confidence. The reader knows from the opening lines they are in the hands of a master storyteller; Leduc never lets them down.” —Quill & Quire (starred review)

“Amanda Leduc has created an exquisite magical world, perfectly rendered, for her dark and wonderful story about the dream life of outsiders and the disabled. And through it, she has scattered her own collection of fairy tales that rival Grimm and Anderson in their provocative beauty.” —Heather O’Neill, author of The Lonely Hearts Hotel and Lullabies for Little Criminals

“Mythological mayhem and the chaos of our times converge in this delicately told tale. Imaginative at every turn, author Amanda Leduc explores the supernatural and superhuman paths we take toward the mirage of family, identity and belonging.” —Catherine Hernandez, award-winning author of Scarborough and Crosshairs

“[The Centaur’s Wife] looks at the fairy tale tradition, rips it apart and audaciously reassembles it. . . . [T]hough it enters the realm of the mysterious and inexplicable, it is anchored to a persuasive naturalism in chronicling the drama of a small group of people fighting for survival in the wake of planetary disaster. . . . [R]eaders will be hooked immediately.” —Calgary Herald
