Stella_Gemmell On vous en parlait en avril dernier.
Les ambitions littéraires de Stella Gemmell, veuve de David, prennent aujourd'hui un tour plus concret avec l'image de la couverture et quelques informations sur le contenu de ce roman épique où vous retrouverez une terre stérilisée par la rivalité et les guerres sans fin. L'empereur, que peu ont eu la chance de voir, semble immortel tant sa vie se prolonge, et les batailles avec. Shuskara, longtemps son plus grand général, a disparu. Alors que tout le monde le croit mort, il va tenter de libérer la ville du joug qui l'étouffe. Le synopsis en entier :

The City is ancient and vast, built up over the millennia, layer upon layer. Once a thriving metropolis, it has sprawled beyond its walls, inciting and waging constant wars with neighbouring tribes and kingdoms - creating a barren wasteland of what was once green and productive.

At the heart of the City lives the emperor. Few have ever seen him, but those who have recall a man in his prime, though he should be very old. Some speculate that he is no longer human, others wonder if indeed he truly ever was. And a small number have come to the desperate conclusion that the only way to stop the City’s incessant war and the constant bloodshed is to end the emperor’s unnaturally long life.

From the maze-like sewers and catacombs below the City, where the poor struggle to stay alive in the dark, to the blood-soaked fields of battle where few heroes manage to survive the never-ending siege, these rebels pin their hopes on one man: Shuskara. Once the emperor’s foremost general, he was betrayed long ago and is believed to be dead. But, under different aliases, he has survived, forsaking his City and hiding from the man to whom he once vowed his allegiance. Now, the time has come for Shuskara to emerge from the shadows and lead a final bid to free the City from those who have brought it and its people to their knees for so long...

Avec un tel nom, inutile de dire qu'il y aura de l'attente.
Rendez-vous en avril 2013 !
