  • 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.

Mais la terrible vérité qui se cache derrière l'histoire de son ennemi va transformer sa tentative en une inexorable descente aux enfers...

  • GAME OF THRONES: A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, NOW ON HBO.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 CROWSIt 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 oer 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.From the Hardcover edition.

    A GAME OF THRONES A CLASH OF KINGS A STORM OF SWORDS A FEAST OF CROWS A DANCE WITH DRAGONS One of the best series in the history of fantasy.--Los Angeles Times 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 Kings Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Roberts 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 queens 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.
