"Tolède, 1487. Ce que je vais te livrer est le plus troublant, le plus prodigieux de tous les secrets. Libère ton esprit de toute entrave. Bois chacune de mes phrases. Que ni le parfum mourant des jasmins, ni le babillage des femmes voilées, qu'aucune de ces choses terrestres ne puisse te distraire de ta lecture. C'est l'histoire d'un livre." Dans une Espagne déchirée par la guerre de reconquête et l'Inquisition, trois hommes vont partir à la recherche de ce mystérieux ouvrage. Trois hommes que tout sépare : un juif, un moine franciscain et un Arabe. Ils n'auront pas d'autre choix que d'unir leur prodigieux savoir pour accéder à la plus grande révélation de tous les temps. Doña Manuela Vivero, proche d'Isabel la Catholique, va croiser leur route. Elle est détentrice, affirme-t-elle, de la clé, l'ultime, celle qui conduit au Livre... Prix des libraires 1996

Gwen's life has been a rollercoaster since she discovered she was the Ruby, the final member of the secret time-traveling Circle of Twelve. In between searching through history for the other time-travelers and asking for a bit of their blood (gross!), she's been trying to figure out what all the mysteries and prophecies surrounding the Circle really mean. At least Gwen has plenty of help. Her best friend Lesley follows every lead diligently on the Internet. James the ghost teaches Gwen how to fit in at an eighteenth century party. And Xemerius, the gargoyle demon who has been following Gwen since he caught her kissing Gideon in a church, offers advice on everything. Oh, yes. And of course there is Gideon, the Diamond. One minute he's very warm indeed; the next he's freezing cold. Gwen's not sure what's going on there, but she's pretty much destined to find out.

"Ecoutez-moi, âmes nobles, gens d'ici et d'ailleurs. Moi, le mendiant, l'errant, l'oublié de la fortune, j'ai mission de vous transmettre les mots de nos pères, les pensées oubliées. Ecoutez-moi ! Poursuivi par la vindicte de Dieu, la solitude est mon lot. Je me suis souvent demandé pourquoi. Pourquoi moi ? Pourquoi cette torture ? Jusqu'au jour où un ange m'a confié que le Très-Haut m'avait volontairement condamné à l'errance éternelle pour avoir dilapidé les heures, pour avoir traversé le monde tel un chien fou. Aussi, aujourd'hui, lecteur, tu es mon dernier recours. Si seulement je parvenais à te convaincre de la richesse des pensées anciennes, alors, peut-être - ô délice ! - verrais-je le Tout-Puissant mettre fin à mon exil sur Terre. Alors, je t'en prie. Désaltère-toi à la source des mots. Prends cette coupe de conseils, bois-la et donne généreusement ce qu'il en reste à qui a soif." Gilbert Sinoué est né au Caire, en 1947. Il a publié de nombreux romans, parmi lesquels "Le Livre de Saphir" (prix des Libraires, 1996) et "L'Enfant de Bruges".

le livre « Elle était plus que belle, elle était magnifique. Lady Hamilton, née Emily Lyon, avait l'eau du ciel dans le regard et le feu sur les lèvres. Née le 26 avril 1765, dans un petit hameau naufragé entre le pays de Galles et la mer d'Irlande, elle grandit dans le plus parfait dénuement. Son père, forgeron de métier, meurt deux mois après la naissance de sa fille. Sa mère, Mary, ne sait ni lire ni écrire. La petite Emily, surnommée aussi Emma, va pourtant connaître un destin éblouissant. Femme de ménage, vendeuse, serveuse, courtisée par de jeunes nobles oisifs, fille-mère à l'âge de 16 ans, elle gravira, presque à son insu, tous les échelons de la société londonnienne, jusqu'au jour où elle épousera lord William Hamilton, ambassadeur de sa Très Gracieuse Majesté au royaume de Naples. Il a trente-cinq ans de plus qu'Emily. Il est éperdument amoureux d'elle. Grâce à lui, la jeune paysanne devenue ambassadrice (elle n'a alors que 23 ans) apprivoise le monde des lettres, de l'art, de la musique et les méandres de la politique. Elle devient la confidente de la reine de Naples, Marie-Caroline, fille de Marie-Thérèse d'Autriche. Aiguillonnée par son mari, elle se découvre de véritables dons de cantatrice et surtout d'extraordinaires facultés de mime. Ses apparitions éblouissent les spectateurs les plus critiques. Un matin d'automne 1793, une rencontre bouleverse sa vie. Un navire, L'Agamemnon, vient d'arriver en rade de Naples. A son bord, un jeune capitaine. Il s'appelle Horatio Nelson, 35 ans, marié depuis six ans et demi. Entre la jeune ambassadrice et le futur amiral, c'est le coup de foudre. » G. S. L'auteur Gilbert Sinoué est né en 1947 au Caire. Après des études chez les Jésuites, il entre à l'école normale de musique de Paris et étudie la guitare classique, qu'il enseignera par la suite. Il publie en 1987 La Pourpre et l'olivier (Orban, prix Jean d'Heurs du roman historique), en 1989, Avicenne ou la route d'Ispahan (Denoël), puis, en 1991, L'Egyptienne (Denoël, prix littéraire du quartier latin), premier volume d'une saga égyptienne suivie par La Fille du Nil en 1993. En 1996, Le Livre de Saphir ( Denoël) obtient le prix des Libraires. Gilbert Sinoué publie ensuite une biographie de Méhémet Ali, Le Dernier Pharaon (Pygmalion, 1997), et L'Enfant de Bruges (Gallimard, 1999, 90 000 ex.) Ses derniers livres : A mon fils, à l'aube du troisième millénaire (Gallimard, 2000), Le Livre des sagesses d'Orient (Editions 1, 2000) et Des jours et des nuits (Gallimard, 2001).

Struggling with bullies, trauma and the first pangs of teenage love, Victor carries a secret that followed his mother to her grave. Struggling for leads, Vilar is shaken when the colleague investigating Pablo's kidnapping disappears. When a sadistic caller claims to have information about his son, Vilar is torn between duty and a desperate chance of redemption.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR, BUZZFEED, AND BOOKLIST • With shades of The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, and Game of Thrones, debut author Pierce Brown’s genre-defying epic Red Rising hit the ground running and wasted no time becoming a sensation. Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom. As a Red, Darrow grew up working the mines deep beneath the surface of Mars, enduring backbreaking labor while dreaming of the better future he was building for his descendants. But the Society he faithfully served was built on lies. Darrow’s kind have been betrayed and denied by their elitist masters, the Golds—and their only path to liberation is revolution. And so Darrow sacrifices himself in the name of the greater good for which Eo, his true love and inspiration, laid down her own life. He becomes a Gold, infiltrating their privileged realm so that he can destroy it from within. A lamb among wolves in a cruel world, Darrow finds friendship, respect, and even love—but also the wrath of powerful rivals. To wage and win the war that will change humankind’s destiny, Darrow must confront the treachery arrayed against him, overcome his all-too-human desire for retribution—and strive not for violent revolt but a hopeful rebirth. Though the road ahead is fraught with danger and deceit, Darrow must choose to follow Eo’s principles of love and justice to free his people. He must live for more. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Pierce Brown's Morning Star. Praise for Golden Son “Gripping . . . Both author and lead character have cranked up the emotional stakes. . . . With Golden Son, Brown avoids the sophomore slump, charging the novel with the kind of dystopia-toppling action you’d expect in a trilogy ender, not a middle volume. On virtually every level, this is a sequel that hates sequels—a perfect fit for a hero who already defies the tropes. [Grade:] A”—Entertainment Weekly “Stirring . . . Comparisons to The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones series are inevitable, for this tale has elements of both.”—Kirkus Reviews “Brown writes layered, flawed characters . . . but plot is his most breathtaking strength. . . . Every action seems to flow into the next.”—NPR “It’s a far superior sequel, in fact: one of the rare breed of reads that improves upon its predecessor in every conceivable category. . . . In a word, Golden Son is stunning. Never mind how little we’ve seen of 2015: Among science fiction fans, it should be a shoo-in for book of the year.”—Tor.com “Brown is a prodigy. As great as the first book of the Red Rising Trilogy is, Golden Son is even better. A wild ride full of suspense, intrigue, and serious ass-kicking bravado, it’s expertly written and emotionally engaging, with top-notch universe-building that begs for further exploration. I want more!”—Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Snowblind “The stakes are even higher than they were in Red Rising, and the twists and turns of the story are every bit as exciting. The jaw-dropper of an ending will leave readers hungry for the conclusion to Brown’s wholly original, completely thrilling saga.”—Booklist (starred review) “Dramatic . . . the rare middle book that loses almost no momentum as it sets up the final installment.”—Publishers Weekly

In the year 1492, the Inquisition has all of Spain in its grip. After centuries of pogrom-like riots encouraged by the Church, the Jews - who have been an important part of Spanish life since the days of the Romans - are expelled from the country by royal edict. Many who wish to remain are intimidated by Church and Crown and become Catholics, but several hundred thousand choose to retain their religion and depart; given little time to flee, some perish even before they can escape from Spain. Yonah Toledano, the 15-year-old son of a celebrated Spanish silversmith, has seen his father and brother die during these terrible days - victims whose murders go almost unnoticed in a time of mass upheaval. Trapped in Spain by circumstances, he is determined to honor the memory of his family by remaining a Jew. On a donkey named Moise, Yonah begins a meandering journey, a young fugitive zigzagging across the vastness of Spain. Toiling at manual labor, he desperately tries to cling to his memories of a vanished culture. As a lonely shepherd on a mountaintop he hurls snatches of almost forgotten Hebrew at the stars, as an apprentice armorer he learns to fight like a Christian knight. Finally, as a man living in a time and land where danger from the Inquisition is everywhere, he deals with the questions that mark his past. How he discovers the answers, how he finds his way to a singular and strong Marrano woman, how he achieves a life with the outer persona of a respected Old Christian physician and the inner life of a secret Jew, is the fabric of this novel. The Last Jew is a glimpse of the past, an authentic tale of high adventure, and a tender and unforgettable love story. In it, Noah Gordon utilizes his greatest strengths, and the result is remarkable and moving.

The Handmaid’s Tale meets The Selection in this darkly riveting tale that BCCB said “Will have fans of Oliver’s Delirium, Cass’s The Selection, and DeStefano’s Wither breathless.” The Jewel means wealth, the Jewel means beauty—but for Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Born and raised in the Marsh, Violet is destined for the Jewel. She is trained as a surrogate for the royalty and is bought by the Duchess of the Lake at auction. And she quickly learns the brutal truths that lie beneath the Jewel’s glittering facade: the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life. Violet must accept the ugly realities of her life . . . all while trying to stay alive. But before she can accept her fate, Violet meets a handsome boy who is also under the Duchess’s control, and a forbidden love erupts. But their illicit affair has consequences, which will cost them both more than they bargained for. And toeing the line between being calculating and rebellious, Violet must decide what, and who, she is willing to risk for her own freedom.
