• Les somnambules

    Chuck Wendig

    Dans un petit village de Pennsylvanie, Shana surprend sa soeur, Nessie, quittant d'un pas résolu leur maison. Lorsqu'elle tente de l'intercepter, la petite fille ne réagit pas à sa présence. Mutique, absente, le regard vide, elle avance... Croyant à une crise de somnambulisme, Shana commence à la suivre. Rapidement, elles sont rejointes par un deuxième errant, frappé des mêmes symptômes que Nessie. Puis un autre. Bientôt, ils sont des centaines à converger vers la même destination inconnue, tandis que leurs proches, impuissants, leur emboîtent le pas. Très vite, cette mystérieuse épidémie enflamme le pays.

    Chuck Wendig tend à notre monde un miroir dans lequel se reflètent ses hantises les plus contemporaines : l'irruption de l'inconnu, la peur de l'autre, la défiance envers le gouvernement, la force rampante des discours religieux et extrémistes... Rappelant autant Le Fléau que The Leftovers, Les Somnambules est un portrait humain mais sans concession d'une société au bord de l'extinction.

  • La Bataille d'Endor a provoqué l'éclatement de l'Empire. Mais les derniers Impériaux ont riposté par une attaque brutale, forçant la Nouvelle République à intensifier ses opérations afin d'achever cet ennemi tapi dans l'ombre. À la demande expresse de Leia, l'ancienne pilote Norra Wexley est chargée de mener la chasse contre la grande amirale Rae Sloane. Cependant, sa loyauté envers la Nouvelle République n'est pas la seule motivation de Norra : il lui reste des comptes, d'ordre personnel, à régler avec l'Impériale.
    Sloane poursuit également sa propre quête : retrouver Gallius Rax, le véritable cerveau derrière l'embuscade impériale, qui se prépare à exécuter le plan ultime de l'Empereur défunt.

    Alors qu'une armada de chasseurs de la République s'approche de la flotte ennemie, Norra et son équipe se retrouvent au coeur d'une confrontation apocalyptique au cours de laquelle doit se jouer l'avenir de la galaxie.

  • Forte de sa victoire décisive - l'Étoile de la Mort détruite, l'empereur et Dark Vador vaincus -, la Nouvelle République se lance à la poursuite des derniers reliquats de l'Empire.

    Mais dans l'espace de la lointaine planète Akiva, la riposte impériale se trame. Lors d'une mission en solitaire, le pilote Wedge Antilles découvre la flotte de destroyers qui se regroupent tels des oiseaux de proie pour une mise à mort. Fait prisonnier, il n'a pas le temps d'avertir la République.

    Norra Wexley, une rebelle retirée du combat, intercepte le message d'alerte. Elle n'a pas le choix : elle doit reprendre la lutte pour la liberté.

  • Miriam Black a un don, elle sait quand la mort frappera à votre porte.
    Âgée d'une vingtaine d'années, elle a déjà vu des centaines de morts aux causes diverses et variées : accidents, suicides, maladies.
    Quand Miriam monte dans le camion de Louis Darling, qui l'a prise en stop, elle lui serre la main et elle voit que dans trente jours, il sera monstrueusement assassiné et prononcera son nom avant de mourir.
    Miriam avait abandonné l'idée d'essayer de sauver les gens :
    Cela ne faisait que précipiter leur mort.
    Pourtant, elle va devoir essayer.

  • A decadent rock star. A deeply religious radio host. A disgraced scientist. And a teenage girl who may be the worlds last hope. From the mind of Chuck Wendig comes a magnum opus . . . a story about survival thats not just about you and me, but all of us, together ( Kirkus Reviews , starred review). Shana wakes up one morning to discover her little sister in the grip of a strange malady. She appears to be sleepwalking. She cannot talk and cannot be woken up. And she is heading with inexorable determination to a destination that only she knows. But Shana and her sister are not alone. Soon they are joined by a flock of sleepwalkers from across America, on the same mysterious journey. And like Shana, there are other shepherds who follow the flock to protect their friends and family on the long dark road ahead. For as the sleepwalking phenomenon awakens terror and violence in America, the real danger may not be the epidemic but the fear of it. With society collapsing all around them--and an ultraviolent militia threatening to exterminate them--the fate of the sleepwalkers depends on unraveling the mystery behind the epidemic. The terrifying secret will either tear the nation apart--or bring the survivors together to remake a shattered world. Advance praise for Wanderers This career-defining epic deserves its inevitable comparisons to Stephen Kings The Stand . -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) A suspenseful, twisty, satisfying, surprising, thought-provoking epic. --Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Run Away A true tour de force. --Erin Morgenstern, New York Times bestselling author of The Night Circus A masterpiece with prose as sharp and heartbreaking as Station Eleven . --Peng Shepherd, author of The Book of M A magnum opus . . . It reminded me of Stephen Kings The Stand-- but dare I say, this story is even better. --James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Crucible An inventive, fierce, uncompromising, stay-up-way-past-bedtime masterwork. --Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World An American epic for these times. --Charles Soule, author of The Oracle Year
