La Cité, lassitude chez les fans de Gemmell ou renouveau grâce à sa femme ?

Construite sur des milliers d’années, faite d’une multitude de niveaux, la Cité est aussi vaste qu’ancienne. Au fil des siècles, elle s’est étendue au-delà de ses remparts, menaçant sans cesse les royaumes voisins. Au cœur de la Cité réside le sanguinaire Empereur, dont le visage reste un mystère et que la mort même semble craindre : certains vont jusqu’à douter de son humanité. Une poignée de rebelles espérant mettre fin à ce règne de terreur placent leurs espoirs en un seul homme, dont le nom sonne comme une légende : Shuskara. Celui qui fut autrefois le général favori de l’Empereur. Un homme respecté, capable de provoquer un soulèvement et d’unir la Cité. Mais aussi un criminel trahi, emprisonné et torturé avant de disparaître…


Avis : White Hot Kiss de Jennifer L. Armentrout

One kiss could be the last Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses. Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever. Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul. But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.
