• Les somnambules

    Chuck Wendig

    Un nouveau monde, le nôtre ?Dans un petit village de Pennsylvanie, Shana surprend sa soeur, Nessie, quittant d'un pas résolu leur maison. Lorsqu'elle tente de l'intercepter, la petite fille ne réagit pas à sa présence. Mutique, absente, le regard vide, elle avance... Croyant à une crise de somnambulisme, Shana commence à la suivre. Rapidement, elles sont rejointes par un deuxième errant, frappé des mêmes symptômes que Nessie. Puis un autre. Bientôt, ils sont des centaines à converger vers la même destination inconnue, tandis que leurs proches, impuissants, leur emboîtent le pas. Très vite, cette mystérieuse épidémie enflamme le pays.
    Chuck Wendig tend à notre monde un miroir dans lequel se reflètent ses hantises les plus contemporaines : l'irruption de l'inconnu, la peur de l'autre, la défiance envers le gouvernement, la force rampante des discours religieux et extrémistes... Rappelant autant Le Fléau que The Leftovers, Les Somnambules est un portrait humain mais sans concession d'une société au bord de l'extinction.

  • La Bataille d'Endor a provoqué l'éclatement de l'Empire. Mais les vestiges impériaux ont riposté par une attaque brutale contre la Nouvelle République, forçant la jeune démocratie à intensifier ses opérations pour achever cet ennemi tapi dans l'ombre. À la demande expresse de Leia, l'ancienne pilote Norra Wexley est chargée de mener la chasse contre la grande amirale Rae Sloane. Mais sa loyauté envers la Nouvelle République n'est pas la seule motivation de Norra : il lui reste des comptes, d'ordre personnel, à régler avec l'Impériale.
    Sloane poursuit également sa propre quête : retrouver Gallius Rax, le véritable cerveau derrière l'embuscade tendue par l'Empire, qui se prépare à exécuter le plan ultime de l'Empereur défunt. Alors qu'une armada de chasseurs de la République s'approche de la flotte ennemie, Norra et son équipe se retrouvent au coeur d'une confrontation apocalyptique au cours de laquelle doit se jouer l'avenir de la galaxie.

  • La galaxie est en plein bouleversement, mais la paix semble enfin possible.
    Alors que Han Solo veut régler sa dernière dette en aidant Chewbacca à libérer sa planète natale : Kashyyyk, Norra Wexley et sa bande de rebelles poursuivent l'Amirale Rae Sloane et les leaders Impériaux restants à travers la galaxie. Même lorsque l'Empire se bat pour regagner du terrain, la Princesse Leia et la Nouvelle République cherchent à négocier une paix durable.
    Mais la chasse des Rebelles s'interrompt rapidement après la disparition de Han Solo et Chewbacca. Prête à tout pour les sauver, la Princesse Leia engage Norra, Sinjir, Jas, et le reste de leur équipe pour retrouver les contrebandiers disparus et les soutenir dans leur combat pour la liberté.

  • Star Wars ; riposte

    Chuck Wendig

    La jeune République, tout juste née de ses cendres, pourchasse les derniers vestiges de l'Empire. Mais celui-ci n'a pas encore abattu toutes ses cartes... IL Y A BIEN LONGTEMPS, DANS UNE GALAXIE LOINTAINE, TRÈS LOINTAINE.... Forte de sa victoire décisive - l'Étoile de la Mort détruite, l'empereur et Dark Vador vaincus -, la Nouvelle République se lance à la poursuite des derniers reliquats de l'Empire. Mais dans l'espace de la lointaine planète Akiva, la riposte impériale se trame. Lors d'une mission en solitaire, le pilote Wedge Antilles découvre la flotte de destroyers qui se regroupent tels des oiseaux de proie pour une mise à mort. Fait prisonnier, il n'a pas le temps d'avertir la République. Norra Wexley, une rebelle retirée du combat, intercepte le message d'alerte. Elle n'a pas le choix : elle doit reprendre la lutte pour la liberté. INÉDIT

  • Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens
    The second Death Star has been destroyed, the Emperor killed, and Darth Vader struck down. Devastating blows against the Empire, and major victories for the Rebel Alliance. But the battle for freedom is far from over.
    As the Empire reels from its critical defeats at the Battle of Endor, the Rebel Alliance-'now a fledgling New Republic-'presses its advantage by hunting down the enemy's scattered forces before they can regroup and retaliate. But above the remote planet Akiva, an ominous show of the enemy's strength is unfolding. Out on a lone reconnaissance mission, pilot Wedge Antilles watches Imperial Star Destroyers gather like birds of prey circling for a kill, but he's taken captive before he can report back to the New Republic leaders.Meanwhile, on the planet's surface, former rebel fighter Norra Wexley has returned to her native world-'war weary, ready to reunite with her estranged son, and eager to build a new life in some distant place. But when Norra intercepts Wedge Antilles's urgent distress call, she realizes her time as a freedom fighter is not yet over. What she doesn't know is just how close the enemy is-'or how decisive and dangerous her new mission will be.Determined to preserve the Empire's power, the surviving Imperial elite are converging on Akiva for a top-secret emergency summit-'to consolidate their forces and rally for a counterstrike. But they haven't reckoned on Norra and her newfound allies-'her technical-genius son, a Zabrak bounty hunter, and a reprobate Imperial defector-'who are prepared to do whatever they must to end the Empire's oppressive reign once and for all.

  • It is a dark time for the Empire. . .The Emperor is dead, and the remnants of his former Empire are in retreat.

Even as more and more officers are brought to justice, Sloane continues to elude the New Republic, and Norra fears Sloane may be searching for a means to save the crumbling Empire from oblivion. But the hunt for Sloane is cut short when Norra receives an urgent request from Princess Leia Organa. The attempt to liberate Kashyyyk has carried Han Solo, Chewbacca, and a band of smugglers into an ambush-'resulting in Chewie's capture and Han's disappearance.Breaking away from their official mission and racing toward Kashyyyk, Norra and her crew prepare for any challenge that stands between them and their missing comrades.
