  • Mon nom est Yeine et j'ai dix-neuf ans. Je suis membre du peuple darrène, au nord des Cent Mille royaumes. Une barbare. Il y a un mois, ma mère a été assassinée. Elle était l'héritière des Arameris, la plus puissante famille du monde. Ce matin, j'ai reçu un message de l'empereur, mon grand-père : une invitation à venir séjourner à Ciel, le palais familial. Plus qu'une invitation, un ordre.
    Je veux découvrir pourquoi ma mère est morte. Même si on ne revient jamais de Ciel.

  • En descendant du train à Penn Station, le jeune homme se rend compte qu'il a tout oublié : son nom, son passé, son visage... Une seule certitude : quoiqu'il n'ait jamais mis les pieds à Manhattan, il est ici chez lui. Rien d'anormal, donc, à ce qu'un vieux taxi jaune à damiers s'arrête devant lui au moment où il en a le plus besoin. Il doit impérativement se rendre sur FDR Drive ; il ignore pourquoi, mais cela a sans doute un rapport avec les tentacules qui sèment le trouble à chaque coin de rue. La ville, sa ville est en danger, et lui seul semble être en mesure de la défendre. Lui seul ? Non, ils sont cinq, un pour chaque arrondissement de New York...

  • La Cinquième Saison jette les derniers vestiges de la civilisation dans une froide nuit sans fin. Essun - jadis Damaya, puis Syénite, mais qui n'est plus aujourd'hui que vengeance - a trouvé un abri, mais pas sa fille. Son chemin croise à nouveau celui d'Albâtre, le destructeur du monde revenu d'entre les morts, porteur d'une demande qu'elle seule peut satisfaire et dont il ne peut résulter que le chaos...
    Pendant ce temps, le pouvoir de Nassun, sa fille, ne cesse de croître. Elle a suivi son père, Jija, loin au sud, où l'attend un autre fantôme du passé de sa mère.

  • Le retour imminent de la Lune signifie-t-il la fin de l'humanité ou au contraire sa rédemption ? La réponse à cette question repose sur les épaules d'une femme et de sa fille. La première, Essun, entend se servir des pouvoirs qu'elle a hérités d'Albâtre pour bâtir un monde dans lequel les orogènes seraient libres. Mais pour la seconde, Nassun, il est trop tard. Elle a vu ce que le monde avait à offrir de pire, et elle a accepté ce que sa mère n'admettra jamais : qu'il est corrompu au-delà du point de non-retour, et que sa destruction est inévitable.
