Lettres écarlates, Anne Bishop (The Others tome 1)

Présentation de l’éditeur Meg Corbyn est une cassandra sangue, une prophétesse du sang, capable de prédire l’avenir lorsqu’elle s’incise la peau. Une malédiction qui lui a valu d’être traitée comme de la viande par des hommes sans scrupules prêts à la taillader pour s’enrichir.

Même si elle sait, grâce à cette vision, que Simon Wolfgard causera également sa perte. Car si le chef des loups... [Lire la suite]
