A River Enchanted: A Novel (Elements of Cadence, 1)

We rated this book:


A River Enchanted exists on the Isle of Cadence. This river flows through the land of the western clan, the Breccans, and the eastern clan, the Tamerlaines. These clans have hated each other for centuries and keep to their respective sides, at least until winter when the Breccans raid the east for food and supplies.

But now, young Tamerlaine girls are going missing, so the heir to the east, Adaira, calls home her childhood enemy, Jack, from the mainland to help. As a bard, he can summon the spirits to ask them questions which they will use to their advantage. However, they will discover there are many more secrets to Cadence then either of them ever knew.

I will definitely say that Rebecca Ross knows her stuff when it comes to world-building. While the Isle is full of spirits and other magical things, it feels familiar as well, like you could easily find it if you wished. You can’t help but enjoy getting to know Adaira, Jack, Torin, and Sidra as you watch them change and grow. This book is for fans of Hannah Whitten or just fantasy in general.
