Un matin, Charles décide de partir en montagne comme il en a l’habitude. Alors qu’il arrive au sommet de la colline du marronnier au pendu, il sombre dans un trou noir qui le fait se réveiller au milieu d’un paysage lunaire, quasi désertique. La stupeur le gagne : lui qui souhaitait s’évader un moment de son quotidien ne pensait pas quitter pour autant la civilisation. Est-ce la mort ? Un rêve ? S’agit-il d’une téléportation ? Au beau milieu de ce décor calciné, il aperçoit un semblant de village, comme tout droit sorti d’une catastrophe. Les pérégrinations du héros ne font que commencer... Un spectacle effarant, une atmosphère tant inqualifiable que surprenante, des découvertes étranges : à coup sûr, ce roman puise dans les ressorts du fantastique sans toutefois compromettre le réalisme. Il est à l’image des situations traversées par le héros : incroyablement singulier. Malgré la prolifération de scénarios de fin du monde qui peuvent lasser, le lecteur ne sera pas déçu car pris au dépourvu.

When the naked, mutilated body of a man is found in a Notting Hill graveyard and the police investigation led by Detective Chief Inspector Grant Foster and his colleague Detective Superintendent Heather Jenkins yields few results, a closer look at the corpse reveals that what looked at first glance like superficial knife wounds on the victim's chest is actually a string of carved letters and numbers, an index number referring to a file in city archives containing birth and death certificates and marriage licenses. Family historian Nigel Barnes is put on the case. As one after another victim is found in various locations all over London, each with a different mutilation but the same index number carved into their skin, Barnes and the police work frantically to figure out how the corresponding files are connected. With no clues to be found in the present, Barnes must now search the archives of the past to solve the mystery behind a string of 100-year-old murders. Only then will it be possible to stop the present series of gruesome killings, but will they be able to do so before the killer ensnares his next victim? Barnes, Foster, and Jenkins enter a race against time – and before the end of the investigation, one of them will get much too close for comfort.

Dans UN PRIX DE COURAGE (Tome 6 de L’anneau du Sorcier), Thor poursuit sa quête qui le mène plus loin encore dans l’Empire, pour retrouver l’Épée de Destinée volée et ainsi sauver l’Anneau. Comme une tragédie ampute d’un de ses membres le groupe qu’il forme avec ses compagnons, les rescapés, plus proches que jamais, apprennent à affronter ensemble l’adversité. Leur voyage les emporte dans des paysages nouveaux et exotiques : les Champs de Sel, le Grand Tunnel et les Montagnes de Feu. À chaque tournant, ils devront affronter toutes sortes de monstres inattendus. Les talents de Thor s’affirment au cours d’un entraînement particulièrement difficile et il devra apprendre à utiliser des pouvoirs plus puissants que jamais s’il veut survivre. Les compagnons découvrent enfin où l’Épée se trouve : pour la retrouver, ils devront s’aventurer dans la région la plus terrifiante de l’Empire : le Pays des Dragons. Du côté de l’Anneau, Gwendolyn se remet lentement de son agression et lutte contre une profonde dépression. Kendrick et ses compagnons jurent de défendre son honneur, même si leurs chances d’y parvenir sont faibles. S’ensuit une des plus grandes batailles de l’histoire de l’Anneau, alors qu’ils se battent pour libérer Silesia et vaincre Andronicus. Pendant ce temps, Godfrey se retrouve incognito derrière les lignes ennemies et commence à s’épanouir, en apprenant ce qu’être un guerrier signifie d’une façon unique. Gareth se débrouille pour rester en vie, en mettant à profit toute sa ruse pour échapper à une capture de Andronicus. Erec se bat avec sa vie pour sauver Savaria de l’invasion imminente de l’Empire – et l’amour de sa vie, Alistair. Argon paye un terrible prix pour avoir transgressé une règle sacrée en se mêlant des affaires humaines. Gwendolyn doit décider entre abandonner sa propre vie ou choisir une existence de nonne recluse dans l’ancienne Tour d’Asile. Mais pas avant qu’un incroyable rebondissement n’apprenne à Thor l’identité de son véritable père. Thor et ses compagnons survivront-ils à cette quête ? Retrouveront-ils l’Épée de Destinée ? L’Anneau se relèvera-t-il de l’invasion de Andronicus ? Quel sort attend Gwendolyn, Kendrick et Erec ? Et qui est le véritable père de Thor ? Entre univers sophistiqué et personnages bien construits, UN PRIX DE COURAGE est un conte épique qui parle d’amis et d’amants, de rivaux et de prétendants, de chevaliers et de dragons, d’intrigues et de machinations politiques, de jeunes gens qui deviennent adultes, de cœurs brisés, de tromperie, d’ambition et de trahison. C’est un conte sur l’honneur et le courage, sur le destin et la sorcellerie. C’est un roman de fantasy qui nous entraîne dans un monde que nous n’oublierons jamais et qui plaira à toutes les tranches d’âge et tous les lecteurs. Le livre compte 70 000 mots.

« Longtemps, j'ai cru que je n'aimais pas le sexe; seul m'occupait l'amour, le plaisir n'en était qu'un des attributs. j'ai été nommée en Orient vingt-huit jours avant le début de la guerre, et ma vie en a été bouleversée... » Telles sont les premières lignes du journal intime que Viviane reçoit un jour par la poste accompagné d'une fiole exhalant un mystérieux parfum, mélange d'ambre et de pâte d'amande. D'où vient ce texte ? Pourquoi le lui a-t-on envoyé ? Et surtout, qui est la femme qui se livre ainsi, avec rage et impudeur, n'omettant aucune de ses aventures érotiques ? A-t-elle un lien avec ces noyées que l'on retrouve au même moment dans l'Ourcq, accrochées à une écluse, au pied de l'appartement où Viviane exerce comme psychologue, spécialisée dans les "addictions" ? La jeune femme est happée par une enquête qui, au fil des pages, va la mener bien au-delà des berges du canal et l'inciter à franchir toutes les frontières, y compris et surtout celles du sexe.

Emma - I know it sounds crazy. You (and Mum!) will be wondering where I've been disappearing to, and when I'll be back. That's why I'm leaving you all this evidence - in case something happens and I DON'T come back. Look at everything in my book. Call the phone numbers. Check out the websites. But, you can't tell ANYBODY about it, unless you want to end up in over your head, like me. But don't worry, I'll be OK (I think). Hey, maybe this is the beginning of a new life for me. For sure it's the end of the old one. Call me. Love, Cathy This book reaches beyond the written word to interact with teenage girls in ways they are quite familiar with in other areas of their lives. From instant-messaging to text-messaging, from surfing the web to having their own sites, the age-old story of 'boy dumps girl and girl wins boy back' is lifted from the page to our three-dimensional, 21st-century world.

The Little Prince is a work in French language, the most famous by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Published in 1943 in New York simultaneously in English and French, it’s a poetic and philosophical tale in the guise of a children's story. It has simple and uncluttered language, because it is intended to be understood by children, and, in fact, for the narrator, it is the preferred vehicle of a symbolic conception of life. Each chapter talks about a meeting of the little prince who leaves him perplexed about the absurd behavior of grown-ups. Each of these meetings can be read as an allegory. The watercolor paintings are part of the text and participate in this purity of language: simplicity and deepness are the key qualities of the work. You can read an invitation from the author to find the child in yourself, because all grown-ups were first children (but few of them remember). The book is dedicated to Léon Werth, but when he was a little boy.

Traumatized by memories of his war-ravaged country, and with his son and daughter-in-law dead, Monsieur Linh travels to a foreign land to bring the child in his arms to safety. The other refugees in the detention center are unsure how to help the old man; his caseworkers are compassionate, but overworked. Monsieur Linh struggles beneath the weight of his sorrow, and becomes increasingly bewildered and isolated in this unfamiliar, fast-moving town. And then he encounters Monsieur Bark. They do not speak each other's language, but Monsieur Bark is sympathetic to the foreigner's need to care for the child. Recently widowed and equally alone, he is eager to talk, and Monsieur Linh knows how to listen. The two men share their solitude, and find friendship in an unlikely dialogue between two very different cultures. Monsieur Linh and His Child is a remarkable novel with an extraordinary twist, a subtle portrait of friendship and a dialogue between two cultures.

“Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games will find it here. Dystopian sci-fi at its best, Starters is a terrific series kickoff with a didn't-see-that-coming conclusion that will leave readers on the edges of their seats . . .” raves the Los Angeles Times. In the future, teens rent their bodies to seniors who want to be young again. One girl discovers her renter plans to do more than party--her body will commit murder, if her mind can't stop it. Sixteen-year-old Callie lost her parents when the genocide spore wiped out everyone except those who were vaccinated first--the very young and very old. With no grandparents to claim Callie and her little brother, they go on the run, living as squatters, and fighting off unclaimed renegades who would kill for a cookie. Hope comes via Prime Destinations, run by a mysterious figure known only as The Old Man. He hires teens to rent their bodies to seniors, known as enders, who get to be young again. Callie's neurochip malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her rich renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, even dating Blake, the grandson of a senator. It's a fairy-tale new life . . . until she uncovers the Body Bank's horrible plan. . . . "STARTERS is a smart, swift, inventive, altogether gripping story. Callie Woodland, the narrator, deserves a series, and happily I am sure she'll get one!"—Dean Koontz . . Kami Garcia, coauthor of the New York Times bestselling Beautiful Creatures novels said “Fans of The Hunger Games will love it.”

But when he marries into the domineering Tulsi family on whom he indignantly becomes dependent, Mr. Biswas embarks on an arduous -- and endless -- struggle to weaken their hold over him, and purchase a house of his own.
