La conquête des terres chinoises à peine achevée, Gengis Khan se voit contraint d'envoyer ses guerriers dans une autre direction. Mohammed, le shah du Khwarezm, a en effet torturé et massacré les émissaires que le chef mongol lui avait envoyés, et Gengis se doit de laver cet affront. Pour le grand khan et ses armées menées par ses frères et ses plus fidèles généraux, c'est le début de la plus longue campagne qu'ils aient jamais entreprise, à l'assaut d'un immense territoire qui s'étend de la mer d'Aral aux rives de la mer Caspienne. La conquête continue... Mais si Gengis sait se montrer à la hauteur lorsqu'il s'agit de conquérir, sera-t-il capable d'assurer sa succession afin de veiller à la pérennité de son empire et de son peuple ?.

Summary:

Le recueil se compose de deux récits, qui partagent deux traits communs. L'un est une même technique de narration : un narrateur non identifié rapporte les dires d'un autres narrateur, on a un récit dans le récit. L'autre est que le narrateur identifié est le même : un vieux marin, nommé Charles Marlowe, qui est plus ou moins un double de Conrad lui-même. Dans le premier récit, Marlowe, jeune, vient de prendre son premier poste d'officier sur un cargo chargé de quelques centaines de tonnes de charbon à destination de Bangkok. Le navire connaît toutes les mésaventures possibles, voie d'eau, tempête épouvantable qui lui cause de graves avaries, et entraînent un retard de plusieurs mois de son départ. Enfin, après avoir appareillé pour de bon, on découvre au milieu de l'Océan Indien, que la cargaison a pris feu spontanément... Le deuxième récit, qui donne son titre au recueil, voit un Charles Marlowe, vieux commandant pratiquement à la retraite, s'ennuyer. Il accepte de commander un bateau de rivière, chargé de remonter un grand fleuve. Aucun nom n'est donné, mais il ne fait pas de doute qu'il s'agit du Congo, dans ce qui sera le Congo belge. Il est chargé d'aller chercher un personnage étrange, nommé Kurtz, qui commande un poste commercial qui lui sert à razzier de l'ivoire. D'autres européens sont passagers sur le bateau, dont le directeur local de l'entreprise. Tous reconnaissent à Kurtz un charisme hors du commun. Celui-ci, malade, doit être relevé mais refuse de l'accepter...

Summary:

The Bible is a book concerned with faith. Because God is a God of relationship, the Bible traces the lives of many who had a relationship with God, as well as many who did not. In the Bible God tells Hosea, “for I am God and no mortal,” (11:9). Simply put, this scripture teaches us that God does not choose as we do. For example, he delivers The Ten Commandments into the hands of a murderer, a non-Jewish prostitute is chosen to become the great-great grandmother of King David of Israel, and a hated Samaritan becomes the hero of one of Jesus’ most enduring parables. These Biblical figures can teach us much about grace, faith, courage, and repentance. Through brief daily readings, The Bones of the Bible reviews and makes relevant some of the people and events of each book of the Bible, all within the course of a year. You will discover that their journeys are not that different from our own and that the one constant we can depend on is the grace of a loving God.

Summary:

For four months and five hundred miles Colin Thubron walked the mountains of Lebanon, following tracks and rivers. His journey was not only a survey of a remarkable country, but a quest for the gods and divinities who held the secrets of death and rebirth in the land's ancient cults. He visited almost every place of cultural importance, and lived with the people along his way, recording a country of outstanding natural scenery, rich with a unique medley of races and religions. The Hills of Adonis is both a travel book and a personal journal; for the quest is the search for meaning, a reflection on faith and reason and a poem on the joy and complexity of living.

Summary:

A thrilling, inventive follow-up to The Desert of Souls by Howard Andrew Jones, a "rare master of the storyteller's art" (Greenmanreview.com) As a snowfall blankets 8th century Mosul, a Persian noblewoman arrives at the home of the scholar Dabir and his friend the swordsman Captain Asim. Najya has escaped from a dangerous cabal that has ensorcelled her to track down ancient magical tools of tremendous power, the bones of the old ones. To stop the cabal and save Najya, Dabir and Asim venture into the worst winter in human memory, hunted by a shape-changing assassin. The stalwart Asim is drawn irresistibly toward the beautiful Persian even as Dabir realizes she may be far more dangerous a threat than anyone who pursues them, for her enchantment worsens with the winter. As their opposition grows, Dabir and Asim have no choice but to ally with their deadliest enemy, the treacherous Greek necromancer, Lydia. But even if they can trust one another long enough to escape their foes, it may be too late for Najya, whose soul is bound up with a vengeful spirit intent on sheathing the world in ice for a thousand years... "The Bones of the Old Ones is a damn good tale that not only pays homage to the masters, but sets its own print on the genre." --SF Signal "This rousing sequel to The Desert of Souls offers a mélange of ancient adventure myths populated by convincing, endearing characters... As intricately woven as the magic carpet of Greek sorceress Lydia, Jones's tale incorporates real historical personages and settings like Mosul of "haggard beauty" from the early days of Islam, and fills the pages with gallantry and glamour to provide a thrilling spectacle." –Publishers Weekly, starred review

Summary:

Comment devient-on Gengis Khan, le plus grand conquérant de tous les temps ? XIIe siècle, entre le lac Baïkal et la Mandchourie, au cœur de l'Asie Centrale. A la mort de Yesugei, khan de la tribu mongole des Loups, l'un de ses guerriers s'empare du pouvoir et abandonne dans l'immensité de la steppe la veuve et ses enfants. Temüdjun, le fils cadet du vieux khan, n'a alors que douze ans mais parvient à survivre avec sa mère et ses frères en se nourrissant du peu que leur concède une terre aride et rude. En compagnie d'une poignée d'hommes bannis comme lui, il multiplie les razzias. Temüdjin ne serait peut-être resté que le chef d'une bande de pillards si une détermination farouche ne l'habitait : venger la mort de son père, et, à cette fin, unir toutes les tribus mongoles face aux Tartars.

Summary:

Certain works of fantasy are immediately recognizable as monuments, towering above the rest of the category. They have been written by the likes of Stephen R. Donaldson, Robert Jordan, and Terry Goodkind. Now add to that list David Farland, whose epic fantasy series began with The Runelords, continued in Brotherhood of the Wolf and the New York Times bestseller Wizardborn, and reaches its peak now in The Lair of Bones. Prince Gaborn, the Earth King, has defeated the forces arrayed against him each time before: the magical and human forces marshaled by Raj Ahten, who seeks immortality at any cost and has given up his humanity in trade; and the inhuman, innumerable, insectile hordes of the giant Reavers from under the Earth, whose motives are unknowable, but inimical to human life. Now there must be final confrontations, both on the field of battle, with the supernatural creature that Raj Ahten has become, and underground, in the cavernous homeland of the Reavers, where the sorcerous One True Master who rules them all lies in wait--in the Lair of Bones. The survival of the human race on Earth is at stake. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Summary:

A tale of love, power and intrigue from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Alice Network and The Huntress. Powerful, prosperous, and expanding ever farther into the untamed world, the Roman Empire has reached its peak under the rule of the beloved Emperor Trajan. But neither he nor his reign can last forever... Brash and headstrong, Vix is a celebrated ex-gladiator returned to Rome to make his fortune. The sinuous, elusive Sabina is a senator's daughter who craves adventure. Sometimes lovers, sometimes enemies, Vix and Sabina are united by their devotion to Trajan. But others are already maneuvering in the shadows. Trajan's ambitious Empress has her own plans for Sabina. And the aristocratic politician Hadrian—who is both the Empress's ruthless protégé and Vix's mortal enemy—has ambitions he confesses to no one, ambitions rooted in a secret prophecy. When Trajan falls, they all will be caught in a deadly whirlwind that may seal their fates, and that of the entire Roman Empire...
