Au fil des jours, Kelsea Glynn apprend à assumer ses nouvelles responsabilités de souveraine. Mais en stoppant les livraisons d’esclaves au royaume voisin de Mortmesne, elle a provoqué la colère de la tyrannique Reine rouge, qui tire son pouvoir de la magie noire. En représailles, sa terrible armée déferle sur le Tearling pour s’emparer de ce qui, selon elle, lui revient de droit. Rien ne peut arrêter l’invasion. À mesure que l’armée Mort se rapproche, voici qu’une mystérieuse connexion s’établit entre Kelsea et une époque datant d’avant la Traversée. Elle se trouve unie à une étrange alliée, qui pourrait s’avérer dangereuse : une certaine Lily, qui lutte pour sa vie dans un monde où il ne fait pas bon être femme. Bientôt, Kelsea elle-même commence à changer ; elle ne reconnaît plus ni son reflet dans le miroir, ni l’extraordinaire pouvoir dont elle dispose à présent. Qui sait ? Le sort du Tearling, et celui de l’âme-même de Kelsea, dépendent peut-être de Lily et de son histoire ? Mais pour la Reine du Tearling, face aux hordes noires qui menacent de déferler sur sa cité et sur son peuple, le temps vient à manquer. Dans ce second tome de la trilogie, nous retrouvons les personnages déjà présents dans La Reine du Tearling. Mais Erika Johansen enrichit son récit d’une nouvelle dimension temporelle, à travers la vie et les pensées d’une deuxième héroïne très attachante, qui elle aussi joue sa destinée. Une destinée indissolublement liée à celle de Kelsea, au Tearling, et au monde meilleur. Traduit de l’anglais par Valérie Rosier

A #1 Indie Next Pick and LibraryReads Selection Magic, adventure, mystery, and romance combine in this epic debut in which a young princess must reclaim her dead mother’s throne, learn to be a ruler—and defeat the Red Queen, a powerful and malevolent sorceress determined to destroy her. On her nineteenth birthday, Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn, raised in exile, sets out on a perilous journey back to the castle of her birth to ascend her rightful throne. Plain and serious, a girl who loves books and learning, Kelsea bears little resemblance to her mother, the vain and frivolous Queen Elyssa. But though she may be inexperienced and sheltered, Kelsea is not defenseless: Around her neck hangs the Tearling sapphire, a jewel of immense magical power; and accompanying her is the Queen’s Guard, a cadre of brave knights led by the enigmatic and dedicated Lazarus. Kelsea will need them all to survive a cabal of enemies who will use every weapon—from crimson-caped assassins to the darkest blood magic—to prevent her from wearing the crown. Despite her royal blood, Kelsea feels like nothing so much as an insecure girl, a child called upon to lead a people and a kingdom about which she knows almost nothing. But what she discovers in the capital will change everything, confronting her with horrors she never imagined. An act of singular daring will throw Kelsea’s kingdom into tumult, unleashing the vengeance of the tyrannical ruler of neighboring Mortmesne: the Red Queen, a sorceress possessed of the darkest magic. Now Kelsea will begin to discover whom among the servants, aristocracy, and her own guard she can trust. But the quest to save her kingdom and meet her destiny has only just begun—a wondrous journey of self-discovery and a trial by fire that will make her a legend . . . if she can survive. This book will be a beautifully designed package with illustrated endpapers, a map of the Tearling, and a ribbon marker.

"Katniss Everdeen, you have competition."—Entertainment Weekly The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Tearling trilogy. In less than a year, Kelsea Glynn has transformed from a gawky teenager into a powerful monarch. As she has come into her own as the Queen of the Tearling, the headstrong, visionary leader has also transformed her realm.

Now, as the suspenseful endgame begins, the fate of Queen Kelsea—and the Tearling itself—will finally be revealed.

In this riveting sequel to the national bestseller The Queen of the Tearling, the evil kingdom of Mortmesne invades the Tearling, with dire consequences for Kelsea and her realm. With each passing day, Kelsea Glynn is growing into her new responsibilities as Queen of the Tearling. By stopping the shipments of slaves to the neighboring kingdom of Mortmesne, she crossed the Red Queen, a brutal ruler whose power derives from dark magic, who is sending her fearsome army into the Tearling to take what is hers. And nothing can stop the invasion. But as the Mort army draws ever closer, Kelsea develops a mysterious connection to a time before the Crossing, and she finds herself relying on a strange and possibly dangerous ally: a woman named Lily, fighting for her life in a world where being female can feel like a crime. The fate of the Tearling —and that of Kelsea’s own soul—may rest with Lily and her story, but Kelsea may not have enough time to find out. In this dazzling sequel, Erika Johansen brings back favorite characters, including the Mace and the Red Queen, and introduces unforgettable new players, adding exciting layers to her multidimensional tale of magic, mystery, and a fierce young heroine.

I only saw her for the briefest of moments, but when I did, I knew I'd never forget her. She's the most powerful, intoxicating woman I've ever seen; no mere mortal could have been responsible for this irresistible creation. But could it also be possible that she's a murderer? A huntress? As I seek to avenge the untimely death of a fellow dragon, I can't ignore the fact that Freya now holds a sacred possession that once belonged to my dearly departed comrade. But there's something about her that's unlike any human I've ever known; something that threatens to consume me entirely if I can't rein in the fiery beast within. For the first time in my long existence, I'm finding it hard to control myself. But to be honest, I'm not sure I want to. This is the third installment of the Dragons Of Sin City series.

We live in an age of persuasion. Leaders and institutions of every kind--public and private, large and small--must compete in the marketplace of images and messages. This has been true since the advent of mass media, from broad circulation magazines and radio through the age of television and the internet. Yet there have been very few true geniuses at the art of mass persuasion in the last century. In public relations, Edward Bernays comes to mind. In advertising, most Hall-of-Famers--J. Walter Thomson, David Ogilvy, Bill Bernbach, Bruce Barton, Ray Rubicam, and others--point to one individual as the "father" of modern advertising: Albert D. Lasker. And yet Lasker--unlike Bernays, Thomson, Ogilvy, and the others--remains an enigma. Now, Jeffrey Cruikshank and Arthur Schultz, having uncovered a treasure trove of Lasker's papers, have written a fascinating and revealing biography of one of the 20th century's most powerful, intriguing, and instructive figures. It is no exaggeration to say that Lasker created modern advertising. He was the first influential proponent of "reason why" advertising, a consumer-centered approach that skillfully melded form and content and a precursor to the "unique selling proposition" approach that today dominates the industry. More than that, he was a prominent political figure, champion of civil rights, man of extreme wealth and hobnobber with kings and maharajahs, as well as with the likes of Albert Einstein and Eleanor Roosevelt. He was also a deeply troubled man, who suffered mental collapses throughout his adult life, though was able fight through and continue his amazing creative and productive activities into later life. This is the story of a man who shaped an industry, and in many ways, shaped a century.

Destined by blood to command the Morgravian army, Wyl Thirsk assumes his awesome responsibility while barely a teenager when his father meets an early death -- a duty that calls him to the royal palace of Stoneheart and into the company of the crown prince Celimus.

With dread war looming in the north, Wyl must obey the treacherous dictates of Celimus and embark on a suicidal journey to the court of an ancient enemy -- armed with a strange and awesome secret that could prove both boon and curse. For unless he accepts Myrren's gift, it will surely destroy him . . . and the land he must defend as well.
