Petit point sur mes derniers achats en VO ! J'étais trop heureuse de recevoir le colis ce matin !
Plus besoin de vous présenter le pitch de Divergent, ce pack est juste sublime et il me tarde de les relire !
Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a disgraced rabbi who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic. When her master, the husband who commissioned her, dies at sea on the voyage from Poland, she is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York in 1899.
Ahmad is a djinni, a being of fire, born in the ancient Syrian desert. Trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard centuries ago, he is released accidentally by a tinsmith in a Lower Manhattan shop. Though he is no longer imprisoned, Ahmad is not entirely free - an unbreakable band of iron binds him to the physical world.
The Golem & The Djinni is their magical, unforgettable story; unlikely friends whose tenuous attachment challenges their opposing natures - until the night a terrifying incident drives them back into their separate worlds. But a powerful threat will soon bring Chava and Ahmad together again, challenging their existence and forcing them to make a fateful choice.
Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive. Da first brought Mackenzie Bishop here four years ago, when she was twelve years old, frightened but determined to prove herself. Now Da is dead, and Mac has grown into what he once was: a ruthless Keeper, tasked with stopping often-violent Histories from waking up and getting out. Because of her job, she lies to the people she loves, and she knows fear for what it is: a useful tool for staying alive.
Being a Keeper isn't just dangerous - it's a constant reminder of those Mac has lost. Da's death was hard enough, but now that her little brother is gone too, Mac starts to wonder about the boundary between living and dying, sleeping and waking. In the Archive, the dead must never be disturbed. And yet, someone is deliberately altering Histories, erasing essential chapters. Unless Mac can piece together what remains, the Archive itself might crumble and fall.
Enfin le troisième et dernier tome de la saga d’Amy Plum ! L’auteur nous avait laissé sur une fin pleine de suspens… Voici la présentation de « Qu’importe l’éternité » :
Kate est désespérée. Vincent, celui qu’elle aime par-dessus tout, a disparu. Seul son esprit parvient encore à communiquer avec la jeune fille. De plus en plus doucement. De moins en moins souvent.
Kate décide de forcer le destin, de tout faire pour sauver l’amour de sa vie. Même si elle doit affronter le clan des numa. Même si elle doit y laisser la vie.
Plutôt la mort que la vie sans Vincent.
