Empire of gold
S A Chakraborty

51ncBSeFDZL._SX325_BO1,204,203,200_

Synopsis du tome 1:

« On the streets of eighteenth-century Cairo, Nahri is a con woman of unsurpassed skill. She makes her living swindling Ottoman nobles, hoping to one day earn enough to change her fortunes. But when Nahri accidentally summons Dara, an equally sly, darkly mysterious djinn warrior, during one of her cons, she learns that even the cleverest of schemes can have deadly consequences.

Forced to flee Cairo, Dara and Nahri journey together across hot, windswept sands teeming with creatures of fire and rivers where the mythical marid sleep, past ruins of once-magnificent human metropolises and mountains where the circling birds of prey are more than what they seem, to Daevabad, the legendary city of brass.

It’s a city steeped in magic and fire, where blood can be as dangerous as any spell; a city where old resentments run deep and the royal court rules with a tenuous grip; a city to which Nahri is irrevocably bound—and where her very presence threatens to ignite a war that has been simmering for centuries. »

 

 

 

 

 

Shorefall
Robert Jackson Bennett

51iiK4c-6gL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

Synopsis du tome 1:

« The city of Tevanne runs on scrivings, the magical inscriptions that make inanimate objects sentient; they power everything, from wheels to weapons. Scrivings have brought enormous progress and enormous wealth – but only to the four merchant Houses who control the magic. Everyone else is a servant or slave, or they eke a precarious living in the hellhole called the Commons.

There’s not much in the way of work for an escaped slave like Sancia Grado, but she has an unnatural talent that makes her one of the best thieves in the city. When she’s offered a lucrative job to steal an ancient artefact from a heavily guarded warehouse, Sancia agrees, dreaming of a leaving the Commons – but instead of escape, she finds herself the target of a murderous conspiracy: someone powerful in Tevanne wants Sancia dead, and the artefact in their hands.

To survive, Sancia will need every ally and every ounce of wits at her disposal. Because if the Houses get the artefact and unlock its secrets, thousands will die – and even worse, it will allow ancient evils back into the world and turn their city into a devastated battleground. »

 

 

 

 

Seven blades in black
Sam Sykes

20190403_123520

« Betrayed by those she trusts most and her magic ripped from her, all Sal the Cacophony has left is her name, her story, and the weapon she used to carve both. But she has a will stronger than magic, and knows exactly where to go.

The Scar, a land torn between powerful empires, where rogue mages go to disappear, disgraced soldiers go to die and Sal went with a blade, a gun, and a list of seven names.

Revenge will be its own reward. »

 

 

 

 

 

The rage of dragons
Evan Winter

20191128_094346

« The Omehi people have been fighting an unwinnable war for generations. The lucky ones are born gifted: some have the power to call down dragons, others can be magically transformed into bigger, stronger, faster killing machines.

Everyone else is fodder, destined to fight and die in the endless war. Tau Tafari wants more than this, but his plans of escape are destroyed when those closest to him are brutally murdered.

With too few gifted left the Omehi are facing genocide, but Tau cares only for revenge. Following an unthinkable path, he will strive to become the greatest swordsman to ever live, willing to die a hundred thousand times for the chance to kill three of his own people. »

 

 

 

 

 

A little life
Hanya Yanigahara

20191207_141303

« Épopée romanesque d’une incroyable intensité, chronique poignante de l’amitié masculine contemporaine, Une vie comme les autres interroge de manière saisissante nos dispositions à l’empathie et l’endurance de chacun à la souffrance, la sienne propre comme celle d’autrui.
On y suit sur quelques dizaines d’années quatre amis de fac venus conquérir New York. Willem, l’acteur à la beauté ravageuse et ami indéfectible, JB, l’artiste peintre aussi ambitieux et talentueux qu’il peut être cruel, Malcolm, l’architecte qui attend son heure dans un prestigieux cabinet new-yorkais, et surtout Jude, le plus mystérieux d’entre eux. Au fil des années, il s’affirme comme le soleil noir de leur quatuor, celui autour duquel les relations s’approfondissent et se compliquent, cependant que leurs vies professionnelles et sociales prennent de l’ampleur.

Révélant ici son immense talent de styliste Hanya Yanagihara redonne, avec ce texte, un souffle inattendu au grand roman épique américain.

Traduit dans vingt-trois pays, Une vie comme les autres, lauréat du Kirkus Award et sélectionné pour le Man Booker Prize, a déjà conquis plus d’un million de lecteurs. »
