La Maison de Berethnet règne sur Inys depuis mille ans. Toujours célibataire, la reine Sabran le Neuvième doit concevoir une fille pour protéger son royaume de la destruction, mais les assassins se rapprochent de sa porte.

Ead Duryan est une étrangère à la cour. Bien qu’elle se soit élevée au rang de dame d’honneur, elle est fidèle à une société secrète de mages. Ead garde un œil vigilant sur Sabran, la protégeant secrètement avec de la magie interdite.

De l’autre côté de la mer sombre, Tané s’est entraînée toute sa vie pour devenir une dragonnière, mais elle est forcée de faire un choix qui pourrait faire basculer sa vie.

Pendant ce temps, l’Est et l’Ouest divisés refusent de parlementer, et les forces du chaos sortent de leur sommeil.


The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction–but assassins are getting closer to her door.

Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.

Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.

Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

“Shannon artfully builds on the world of The Priory of the Orange Tree with this masterful standalone prequel. … it’s an expansive epic … Shannon skillfully grounds high-stakes fantasy action in human emotion and a mature exploration of duty, bodily autonomy, identity, and motherhood. Series fans and any reader looking for queernorm fantasy will be thrilled by this self-assured adventure.” —Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“[A] fantasy trilogy in one volume, allowing for deep exploration of each protagonist as they navigate a brutal cataclysm. This richly detailed epic roars to a satisfying conclusion; both Priory devotees and newcomers are in for a treat.” —Booklist, Starred Review

“A magnificent, sweeping epic. Shannon has created a world rich in intricate mythology, beautifully realized and complex, and placed at its heart bold and vivid characters. Their journeys sweep the reader along, compelled by a thrilling plot of peril and warfare, but utterly captivated by the heartfelt relationships, the simmering romances, the betrayals, the loss and the love. Highly recommended for hiding away from the real world and losing yourself in this one instead” —Jennifer Saint, internationally bestselling author of Ariadne

“In this stunning epic fantasy, lush with detail and nuance, Shannon weaves a tale of three powerful women that intersect in the most thrilling ways. Huge in scope, rich with emotion, and gorgeously queer, A Day of Fallen Night is the Roots of Chaos book fans have been waiting for. Shannon is simply a master of the genre’” —C. S. Pacat, New York Times-bestselling author of Dark Rise

“Like a dragon in flight, Samantha Shannon takes you soaring through a tale full of fire and spirit. It is in that freefall that I fell utterly in love with these new characters. The novel draws strength from the power of a woman’s choice, giving the characters a depth of fortitude that is masterful in its craft and execution. Shannon lays bare the intricacies of the world she’s created with sublime skill, enrapturing the reader with political intrigue and momentous action, cleaved through with heart and passion. Simply put, Samantha Shannon hasn’t just done it again, she’s surpassed all that has come before and cemented herself as a legend of the genre.” —Saara El-Arifi, Internationally-bestselling author of The Final Strife

“A mesmerizing diversion for a cold February weekend.” —Washington Post on THE PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE

“Epic in scope, yet careful and tender in its depiction of personal grief, A Day of Fallen Night shows the heights of courage and depths of hope that people can find during terrifying, destruction chaos. A triumph of a book.” —Helen Corcoran, author of Queen of Coin and Whispers

“Epic feminist fantasy… with queer representation on the page, complex female characters, and a fantastical world that rivals Westeros, the pages simply fly by. Shannon has taken the fantasy epic and breathed new life into it, allowing women’s stories to take center stage where they belong, even in a world nothing like our own.” —BuzzFeed on THE PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE

“The world building alone is a masterpiece, with religions, different lore and histories, as well as differing societal norms seeping into the pages of the book, coating it in a rich, spellbinding tale that takes hold of the reader and doesn’t let go… I didn’t know how hollow Fantasy felt until The Priory of the Orange Tree filled that void.” —Hypable on THE PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE

“A masterpiece of intricate world-building with the depth, complexity, heart and soul of a timelessly relevant classic.” —Karen Marie Moning, #1 New York Times-bestselling author on THE PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE
