Pierre Pevel, who achieved international renown with his Cardinal’s Blades series published in ten countries, now offers us an action-packed epic that takes place within a world as rich and as believable as any historical setting. As various clans maneuver and clash in anticipation of an impending war of succession, this novel brings together a gallery of enthralling characters, a pinch of magic, and concealed dragons, and is certain to appeal to fans of Game of Thrones.
Pierre Pevel is bringing all the skills of a historical fantasy writer to an epic stage.
In this debut novel, Antoine Rouaud displays an astonishing virtuosity, creating a very subtle plot based on unfolding secrets, in a fashion seldom seen in a work of Fantasy and designed to sustain a high level of suspense. Depicting mortal characters thrown into the maelstrom of History and who ultimately become figures of legend, The Book and the Sword is a real page-turner !
‘The Path of Anger is one of those books you start reading one evening, and devour non-stop until you reach the words « the end »’
Comment ça marche ?
Prix Gulli 2014 for best novel!
Adrien and Hadrien are two thirteen-year-old boys and they live only a few kilometres from one another in northern France. They both have problems in school, at home, and with girls, like most boys their age. There’s only one thing that sets them apart: Adrien lives in the year 2014, and Hadrien in 1914. But magic intervenes in their destinies and two mailboxes appear before their respective houses, allowing them to exchange letters.
This skilfully drawn, fantastic parallel, will allow readers to plunge into a crucial historical period and to follow the story of a beautiful friendship.
Two teenagers exchange letters.
One lives in 2014… the other in 1914.
Sascha is no ordinary young woman: she can possess people by simply touching them, but she has no idea where this power comes from.
It all becomes clear when she meets enemy brothers Raphaël and Zekiel… except perhaps which one she prefers.
Destined from birth to unleash the Apocalypse, the future of the human race depends on her. But then again, she might just do what her heart dictates...
'Not to be missed! Action, suspense, a wickedly off-beat sense of humour, an appealing heroine and a breathtaking ending!'
Rose de Saulnay, a quiet young woman belonging to the upper classes, has a passion for fashion which she expresses by creating superb dresses in secret. But her husband, a violent and possessive man, finds this pastime unworthy of her social rank and disapproves of her behaviour.
At a grand ball, she meets Alexander Wright, the French capital’s most renowned couturier. Her husband hires him to design an outfit for Rose, and it’s love at first sight. When divorce becomes legal in France in July of that year, Rose finds the courage to take her life in her own hands. She
leaves her spouse at last and opens a dress-making shop.
Despite the difficulties of her situation and society’s rejection of her, Rose gradually wins her independence and, thanks to Alexander Wright, regains her faith in the future... and in love.
In 19th-century Paris, a lady turns seamstress, and becomes mistress of her fate.

Armed with his corrosive sense of humour, but also his soft heart, Gérard decides to try dating websites. He soon realizes that finding his special someone is not going to be easy…
Through the hilarious and touching tales of his meetings and mishaps, from the female collector of ‘Dating Site Boys’ to the intense astrology fanatic, Gérard learns to live on his own and to enjoy the pleasures of being single.
Dating 2.0: realistic, touching, and hilarious!
