  • Après des décennies de guerres intestines, les tribus Listes edur se sont enfin unies sous la férule du roi-sorcier des Hiroths, au prix d'un pacte aussi mystérieux qu'inquiétant. Au sud, le royaume expansionniste de Lether se prépare pour l'accomplissement de l'antique prophétie qui le verra renaître en tant qu'empire : tous les peuples voisins, moins puissants que lui, sont désormais asservis. Tous, sauf les Tistes Edur.
    Mais ce n'est qu'une question de temps avant qu'eux aussi ne tombent, écrasés sous le poids étouffant de l'or ou passés au fil de l'épée. Alors que les deux parties se réunissent afin de conclure un traité crucial dont personne ne veut vraiment, d'anciennes forces se réveillent. Car derrière le conflit qui couve se cache une tout autre lutte : celle d'un dieu manipulateur anciennement trahi qui n'aspire plus qu'à la vengeance...
    Situé chronologiquement avant Les Jardins de la Lune, Les Marées de Minuit étend l'univers tentaculaire de Steven Erikson en introduisant une foule de nouveaux personnages hauts en couleur et en creusant les soubassements de l'intrigue exceptionnellement riche du Livre des Martyrs.

  • Deuxième tome de la saga épique de Steven Erikson, Les Portes de la Maison des Morts nous emmènent sur le vaste continent de Sept-Cités, au coeur du Saint-Désert de Raraku où l'oracle Sha'ik rassemble son armée pour une rébellion des plus sanglantes : un maelström de fanatisme et de férocité qui façonnera des destinées et enfantera des légendes... Félisine, la plus jeune fille de la Maison Paran, tombée en disgrâce, rêve de vengeance dans les mines d'Otataral.
    Pendant ce temps, le sapeur Violain et l'assassin Kalam, deux Brûleurs de Ponts devenus hors-la-loi, se sont fixé comme mission de ramener la jeune Apsalar chez elle et, ce faisant, de confronter l'Impératrice Laseen. Tandis qu'à Hissar, Coltaine, commandant de la 7ème Armée de Malaz, s'apprête à lancer ses fidèles Wickiens et ses troupes dans une ultime bataille pour sauver les populations jetées sur les routes par le chaos de la rébellion.
    C'est ce moment que choisissent deux vagabonds séculaires pour revenir : Mappo le Trell et son compagnon Icarium de demi-sang Jaghut, porteurs d'un secret dévastateur qui menace de rompre ses chaînes à tout instant...

  • Au nord de Genabackis, un groupe d'incursion mené par trois guerriers teblors descend de la montagne dans le but de ravager les plaines méridionales occupées par les basse-terriens qu'ils honnissent. Pour le dénommé Karsa Orlong, ce raid marquera le début d'une extraordinaire destinée.
    Quelques années plus tard, Tavore, la nouvelle Adjointe de l'Impératrice, débarque dans le dernier bastion de Sept-Cités encore aux mains des Malazéens après les événements dramatiques de la Chaîne des Chiens. Nouvelle à son poste de commandement, elle devra aguerrir douze mille soldats fraîchement recrutés pour la plupart - à l'exception d'une poignée de vétérans ayant survécu à la légendaire marche de Coltaine - afin de former une armée capable de renverser les hordes de l'Apocalypse qui se terrent au coeur du Saint-Désert.
    Tandis que les Grands Prêtres et les généraux de Sha'ik se livrent à une lutte de pouvoir qui menace l'âme même de la Rébellion, d'obscures forces se rassemblent autour de Raraku et de son mystérieux Tourbillon. Dans le Naissant, Onrack, un T'lan Imass perdu, libère de ses fers le Tiste Edur Trull Sengar, abandonné et banni par ses semblables ; tous deux vont dès lors se lancer dans une longue odyssée pour rejoindre leur domaine d'origine. Sur Avalii la dérivante, une sanglante confrontation ravive les inimitiés qui règnent entre les trois garennes primordiales, forçant Ammanas et Cotillon à sortir de leur réserve. Et au coeur de Kurald Thyrllan, les Tistes Liosan sont aux abois : Osric, leur dieu, a disparu, et personne ne semble savoir où il est.
    Un terreau propice à l'avènement de la Maison des Chaînes du Dieu Estropié qui, en secret, poursuit son inquiétant recrutement...

  • « Il n'y a pas et n'y a jamais eu d'extraterrestres présents sur Terre. Il est important que vous continuiez à le croire. Voici pourquoi. » Des activités suspectes dans le système solaire ne font aucun doute : des extraterrestres viennent d'y arriver. Pour preuve une autrice de SF a été enlevée... Sans jamais s'expliquer, ils vont peu à peu intervenir afin d'orienter notre destin. L'humanité s'en trouvera changée, à jamais.
    Rencontre du troisième type, Rendez-vous avec Rama, 2001 L'odyssée de l'espace voire même E.T. ont tenté de répondre à ces questions en leur temps. Plus récemment, le succès d'un film comme Premier contact de Denis Villeneuve montre l'engouement autour de ce thème. Steven Erikson prend leur suite, en y appliquant les questions les plus contemporaines : la place de la femme dans un monde libéré de la violence des hommes et la catastrophe climatique, en particulier.

  • Bled dry by interminable warfare, infighting and bloody confrontations with Lord Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii, the vast, sprawling Malazan empire simmers with discontent.

  • The Seven Cities Rebellion is over, Sha'ik is dead, but a last rebel force remains, holed up in the city of Y'Ghatan under the fanatical command of Leoman of the Flails. The prospect of laying siege to this ancient fortress makes the battle-weary Malaz 14th Army uneasy - for it was here that the Empire's greatest champion Dassem Ultor was slain and a tide of Malazan blood spilled... But agents of a far greater conflict have made their opening moves. The Crippled God has been granted a place in the pantheon, a schism threatens, sides must be chosen but whatever each god decides, the rules have changed - and the first blood spilled will be in the mortal world: a world in which a host of characters, familiar and new, search for a fate that they might fashion by their own will. If only the gods would leave them alone. But gods are disinclined to be kind. There shall be war, war in the heavens. And the prize? Nothing less than existence itself...

  • The Letherii Empire is in turmoil. Rhulad Sengar, the Emperor of a Thousand Deaths, spirals into madness, while the Errant, once a farseeing god, appears suddenly blind to the future. Driven by the corruption and self-interest, the empire edges ever-closer to all-out war with its neighbouring kingdoms.

  • In Northern Genabackis, just before the events recounted in GARDENS OF THE MOON, a raiding party of savage tribal warriors descends from the mountains into the southern flat lands. Their intention is to wreak havoc among the despised lowlanders, but for the one named Karsa Orlong it marks the beginning of what will prove an extraordinary destiny.

    Some years later, it is the aftermath of the Chain of Dogs. Coltaine, revered commander of the Malazan 7th Army is dead. And now Tavore, elder sister of Ganoes Paran and Adjunct to the Empress, has arrived in the last remaining Malazan stronghold of the Seven Cities to take charge. Untested and new to command, she must hone a small army of twelve thousand soldiers, mostly raw recruits, into a viable fighting force and lead them into battle against the massed hordes of Sha'ik's Whirlwind. Her only hope lies in resurrecting the shattered faith of the few remaining survivors from Coltaine's legendary march, veterans one and all.

    In distant Raraku, in the heart of the Holy Desert, the seer Sha'ik waits with her rebel army. But waiting is never easy. Her disparate collection of warlords - tribal chiefs, High Mages, a renegade Malazan Fist and his sorceror - is locked in a vicious power struggle that threatens to tear the rebellion apart from within. And Sha'ik herself suffers, haunted by the private knowledge of her nemesis, Tavore...her own sister.

    So begins the awesome new chapter in Stven Erikson's MALAZAN BOOK OF THE FALLEN - an epic novel of war, intrigue, magic and betrayal from a writer regarded as one of the most original, imaginative and exciting storytellers in fantasy today.

  • Le livre des martyrs, le souffle duamoissonneur, tome 7 Nouv.

  • After decades of warfare, the tribes of the Tiste Edur have at last united under the rule of the Warlock King. But peace has been exacted at a terrible price - a pact made with a hidden power whose motives are at best suspect, at worst deadly.
    To the south, the expansionist kingdom of Lether has devoured all of its less-civilised neighbours with rapacious hunger. All save one - the Tiste Edur. But Lether is approaching a long-prophesied renaissance - from kingdom and lost colony to Empire reborn - and has fixed its gaze on the rich lands of the Tiste Edur. It seems inevitable that the tribes will surrender, either to the suffocating weight of gold, or to slaughter at the edge of a sword. Or so Destiny has decreed.
    A pivotal treaty between the two sides nears - but unknown ancient forces are awakening. For the impending struggle between these two peoples is but a pale reflection of an altogether more profound, primal battle - a confrontation with the still-raw wound of betrayal and the craving for vengeance at its heart. War and confrontation, magic and myth collide in this, the stunning fifth chapter in Steven Erikson's magnificent 'Malazan Book of the Fallen' sequence, hailed as an epic of the imagination and a fantasy classic in the making

  • On the Letherii continent the exiled Malazan army commanded by Adjunct Tavore begins its march into the eastern Wastelands, to fight for an unknown cause against an enemy it has never seen.

    The fate awaiting the Bonehunters is one no soldier can prepare for, and one no mortal soul can withstand - the foe is uncertainty and the only weapon worth wielding is stubborn courage. In war everyone loses, and this brutal truth can be found in the eyes of every soldier in every world.

    Destinies are never simple. Truths are neither clear nor sharp. The Tales of the Malazan Book of the Fallen are drawing to a close in a distant place, beneath indifferent skies, as the last great army of the Malazan Empire seeks a final battle in the name of redemption. Final questions remain to be answered: can one's deeds be heroic when no one is there to see it? Can that which is unwitnessed forever change the world? The answers await the Bonehunters, beyond the Wastelands...
