Un roman officiel MINECRAFT !
On peut être amis malgré les différences. Max et Alison sont la preuve vivante. Max est toujours en quête d'aventures, même s'il s'attire des ennuis, tandis qu'Alison est plus à cheval sur les règles. Cependant, ils sont tous deux fascinés par le vieux carnet usé que Max a découvert. Son auteur anonyme, l'Enchanteur, y décrit un étrange portail menant à un monde mystérieux et dangereux : le Nether. Max et Alison hésitent : rester en sécurité dans l'Overworld ou se laisser aller à l'exaltation de l'aventure et franchir le portail... jusqu'à ce qu'un incident fâcheux décide à leur place.
Si vous trouvez ce carnet, ne suivez surtout pas ma piste. Le danger est grand et les risques sont nombreux.
"Wit, style and plenty of sardonic dialogue, like Douglas Adams writing an episode of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER" - James Lovegrove, The Financial Times COULD YOU FIND A HOTEL FOR A HARPY? OR A BAR FOR A BIGFOOT?
Following the disaster that was her last job, Zoö is searching for a fresh start as a travel writer in New York City. After stumbling across a seemingly perfect position, though, Zoö is blocked at every turn because of the one thing she can't take off her rösumö - human.
Not to be put off by anything - especially not her blood-drinking boss or death goddess co-worker - Zoö delves deep into the monster world. But her assignments turn deadly when the careful balance between humans and monsters starts to crumble with Zoö right in the middle.
"If Buffy grew up, got therapy and found a real job, it would look like this." - Scott Sigler "Shows exactly why so many writers have been buzzing about Mur Lafferty for so many years: an unbeatable mixture of humor, heart, imagination, and characterization. I want to live in Mur's New York." - Cory Doctorow "Lafferty's novel has wit, style and plenty of sardonic dialogue, like Douglas Adams writing an episode of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER" - James Lovegrove, The Financial Times "THE SHAMBLING GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY is a high-concept, high-comedy romp through the supernatural underworld. It's like nothing you've ever read before - and that's a good thing." - Seanan McGuire (aka Mira Grant, author of FEED) "A wild ride through the secret side of New York City, Mur Lafferty's mighty debut is urban fantasy the way it should be: fast, funny, with bags of action and characters you'll love. A total delight from cover to cover." - Adam Christopher, author of EMPIRE STATE "Without Mur Lafferty, the SF genre would be a much duller place." - Paul Cornell
