  • Mississippi, 1857. Quel capitaine de vapeur sensé refuserait le marché de Joshua York ? Cet armateur aux allures de dandy romantique offre des fonds illimités pour faire construire le navire le plus grand, le plus rapide et le plus somptueux que le fleuve ait jamais connu. En échange de quoi ses exigences paraissent bien raisonnables : garder la maîtrise des horaires et des destinations, et, surtout, ne jamais être dérangé dans sa cabine hermétiquement close, dont il ne sort qu'une fois la nuit tombée.
    Voilà enfin l'occasion qu'attendait le capitaine Marsh, vieux loup de rivière, pour relancer sa compagnie en perte de vitesse. Si ce formidable vapeur lui permet de coiffer ses concurrents au poteau, peu lui importe les lubies de l'étrange armateur.
    Jusqu'au jour où une vague de meurtres sanglants apparaît dans le sillage du Rêve de Fevre...

  • Sous les ruines d'un monde ancien grouille la vie...
    Dans une ville croulante, sur une planète mourante et oubliée de tous, le jeune Annelyn profite de la fête organisée à l'occasion de la nouvelle Mascarade solaire. Superbe dans son costume de soie, son arrogance est à la hauteur de sa beauté.
    Quand il est moqué devant ses nobles amis par le Viandard, chasseur de grouns, il échafaude un plan de revanche. Mais la terrible vérité qui se cache derrière l'histoire de son ennemi va transformer sa tentative en une inexorable descente aux enfers...

    Il était une fois, perdu dans un lointain passé, le royaume des Sept Couronnes... En ces temps nimbés de brume, où la belle saison pouvait durer des années, la mauvaise toute une vie d'homme, se multiplièrent un jour des présages alarmants. Au nord du Mur colossal qui protégeait le royaume, se massèrent soudain des forces obscures ; au sud, l'ordre établi chancela, la luxure et l'inceste, le meurtre et la corruption, la lâcheté et le mensonge enserrèrent inexorablement le trône convoité. Pour préserver de l'ignominie les siens et la dynastie menacés se dresse alors, armé de sa seule droiture, le duc Stark de Winterfell, aussi rude que son septentrion natal. Mais en dépit du pouvoir immense que vient de lui conférer le roi, a-t-il quelque chance d'endiguer la tourmente qui se lève ?

    Dans la lignée des Rois maudits et d'Excalibur, Le Trône de fer plonge le lecteur, sans lui laisser reprendre souffle, dans un univers de délices et de feu. L'épique et le chevaleresque côtoient sans cesse le vil et le démoniaque. La bravoure et la loyauté se heurtent à la duplicité et à la fourberie. Mais dans ce tourbillon d'aventures cruelles, ce sont finalement l'amour, la tendresse, l'indestructible force de l'amitié qui rayonnent au-dessus des ténèbres.

    Comment Lord Eddard Stark, seigneur de Winterfell, Main du Roi, gravement blessé par traîtrise, et par la même plus que jamais à la merci de la perfidie de la reine Cersei ou des imprévisibles caprices du despotique Roi Robert, aurait-il une chance d'échapper à la nasse tissée dans l'ombre pour l'abattre ?
    Comment, armé de sa seule et inébranlable loyauté, cerné de toutes parts par d'abominables intrigues, pourrait-il à la fois survivre, sauvegarder les siens et assurer la pérennité du royaume ?
    Comment ne serait-il pas voué à être finalement broyé dans un engrenage infernal, alors que Catelyn, son épouse, a mis le feu aux poudres en s'emparant du diabolique nain Tyrion, le frère de la reine ?
    /> Si les hautes figures, les personnages émouvants et les monstres sadiques conservent dans Le Donjon rouge la place de choix qu'ils occupaient dans Le Trône de fer, ce sont surtout les femmes qui tiennent cette fois les premiers rôles : lionnes innocentes ou rebelles, elles réservent à leurs seigneurs et maîtres, censés pourtant dominer la partie, les plus suaves et déchirantes surprises...

  • THE BOOK BEHIND THE FOURTH SEASON OF THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES
    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.
    A FEAST FOR CROWS
    It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. . . . With the death of the monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in King’s Landing. Robb Stark’s demise has broken the back of the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron Throne still exist--or they are held in hands too weak or too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out.
    But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle, it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces--some familiar, others only just appearing--are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.
    It is a time when the wise and the ambitious, the deceitful and the strong will acquire the skills, the power, and the magic to survive the stark and terrible times that lie before them. It is a time for nobles and commoners, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and sages to come together and stake their fortunes . . . and their lives. For at a feast for crows, many are the guests--but only a few are the survivors.

But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind.
    Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way to Daenerys. But his newest allies in this quest are not the rag-tag band they seem, and at their heart lies one who could undo Daenerys’s claim to Westeros forever.

Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel . . . and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

  • In this unforgettable space opera, #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin presents a chilling vision of eternal night--a volatile world where cultures clash, codes of honor do not exist, and the hunter and the hunted are often interchangeable.

She is bound to another man, and to a dying planet that is trapped in twilight. Gwen needs Dirk’s protection, and he will do anything to keep her safe, even if it means challenging the barbaric man who has claimed her. But an impenetrable veil of secrecy surrounds them all, and it’s becoming impossible for Dirk to distinguish between his allies and his enemies. In this dangerous triangle, one is hurtling toward escape, another toward revenge, and the last toward a brutal, untimely demise.

    Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse--unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
    Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister--the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
    Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki--whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

    Armed with this unique equipment, Tuf is set to tackle the problems that human settlers have created in colonizing far-flung worlds: hosts of hostile monsters, a population hooked on procreation, a dictator who unleashes plagues to get his own way . . . and in every case, the only thing that stands between the colonists and disaster is Tuf’s ingenuity--and his reputation as a man of integrity in a universe of rogues.
