A River Enchanted

By Rebecca Ross
A River Enchanted by Rebecca Ross digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

“Exquisitely written with compelling characters and romance . . . I was swept away by the enchanting and magical world Rebecca Ross crafted, and loved every moment of it.” — Sue Lynn Tan, bestselling author of Daughter of the Moon Goddess

Enter the isle of Cadence in this novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Divine Rivals—a Scottish-inspired fantasy brimming with enemies-to-lovers romance, magic and spirits, and a captivating mystery

It starts with a letter and an ominous journey across dark waters. Ten years after being sent away to the mainland to become a bard, Jack Tamerlaine is summoned home to Cadence. Girls are going missing from the island, and Adaira, his childhood nemesis and the future leader of the clan, believes Jack is the only one who can find them.

The elemental spirits that dwell in every breath of air, splash of water, blade of grass, and flicker of fire find mirth in the lives of the humans, and a bard’s music is the only way to summon them and ask that the girls be returned. Yet as Jack and Adaira get closer to solving the mystery, it becomes apparent that an older, darker secret about Cadence lurks beneath the surface, and no harp song may be strong enough to stop it.

With unforgettable characters, a thrilling plot, and a lush folklore-infused world, A River Enchanted is a stirring story of duty, love, and creating harmony between opposing forces. This first book in the Elements of Cadence duology marks Rebecca Ross’s brilliant entry on the adult fantasy stage.

Expressionless Face“**unpopular opinion incoming** I had no idea what the plot was gonna be, but a kidnapping mystery with a lackluster romance subplot was not it. Also I’m so sick of books ending on the “take me to spare them” trope. Like you’re telling me the leaders of different lands can’t have diplomatic conversations for mutually beneficial results? This did nooooot need to be a duology. Three stars tho simply because of the beauty of Rebecca Ross’s writing”
Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“A slow start nearly derailed me from what turned out to be a beautiful and immersive story. Jack and Adaira grow from childhood rivals to something much more complex and magical in this tale of an Island steeped in, yet divided by, the spirits’ games and mortal enmities. It was refreshing to read a true ‘ensemble’ tale - with multiple points of view leading us to better understand the motivations and growth in a wide host of characters. Cadence and its heather-covered hills and stream-fed valleys are somewhere I’m eager to visit again….”
