Shadow Heir (Dark Swan 4)

New York Times bestselling author Richelle Mead returns to the Otherworld, a mystic land inextricably linked to our own - and balanced precariously on one woman's desperate courage... Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham strives to keep the mortal realm safe from trespassing entities. But as the Thorn Land's prophecy-haunted queen, there's no refuge for her and her soon-to-be-born children when a mysterious blight begins to devastate the Otherworld... The spell-driven source of the blight isn't the only challenge to Eugenie's instincts. Fairy king Dorian is sacrificing everything to help, but Eugenie can't trust the synergy drawing them back together. The uneasy truce between her and her shape shifter ex-lover Kiyo is endangered by secrets he can't - or won't - reveal. And as a formidable force rises to also threaten the human world, Eugenie must use her own cursed fate as a weapon - and risk the ultimate sacrifice...

Richelle (en wallon Ritchele) est une section de la commune belge de Visé située en Région wallonne dans la province de Liège. C'était une commune à part entière avant la fusion des communes de 1977.

Sommaire

Geographie

Richelle est posté en haut d'une falaise surplombant la Meuse de plusieurs dizaines de mètres. Le village est à une altitude approximative de 120 mètres, mais une toute petite partie du territoire du village court jusqu'à la Meuse, à ce moment à 60 mètres au-dessus du niveau de la mer.

Ce lieu bucolique est caractérisé par près de 500 habitations regroupées autour de la place du village, à l'exception de celles de deux rues qui fuient d'une part vers Dalhem et d'autre part vers Visé.

Histoire

De par sa position stratégique entre Liège et Maastricht et en surplomb de la Meuse, Richelle n'a pas été épargnée par les conflits de l'histoire. Au Moyen Âge, c'est à Richelle même que s'exerce la (basse et moyenne) justice, comme en témoignent encore les deux cours de justice du village. Après avoir dépendu de l'abbaye de Chèvremont, elle est rattachée au duché de Limbourg. Elle est ensuite terre espagnole, française, autrichienne et même hongroise avant la naissance de la nation belge.

Aujourd'hui, Richelle déborde d'activités comme en témoigne le titre officiel de village le plus convivial de Wallonie décerné en l'an 2000.
