Siren & The Sandcastle Empire : Mes deux dernières déceptions

Aujourd’hui on se retrouve pour un format de chronique un peu particulier ; en effet cet article ne contiendra pas une mais deux chroniques (donc plus courtes qu’habituellement) sur mes deux dernières lectures : Siren, le troisième tome de la série The Vinyl Trilogy de Sophia Elaine Hanson, et The Sandcastle Empire de Kayla Olson.

Je n’irai pas jusqu’à dire que j’ai détesté ces lectures, mais elles ont néanmoins été des déceptions pour moi.. Poursuivre la lecture de « Siren & The Sandcastle Empire : Mes deux dernières déceptions »

The Witcher : Une première saison qui promet du lourd

Officiellement annoncée il y a maintenant plus d’un an, l’adaptation des romans d’Andrzej Sapkowski est sortie le 20 Décembre dernier sur Netflix. C’était une série que j’attendais avec énormément d’impatience, et c’est sans surprise que je me suis jetée dessus dès sa sortie.

J’ai rapidement visionné les 8 épisodes de cette première saison de The Witcher, et on se retrouve donc aujourd’hui pour mon avis (sans spoilers) de cette série qui, je pense, n’a pas fini de faire battre mon cœur.

Synopsis : La série suit l’histoire de Geralt de Riv, un sorceleur chasseur de monstres en tous genres qui arpente les royaumes fragiles et corrompus du Continent. Sa destinée mettra sur son chemin Yennefer, une puissante sorcière et Ciri, une jeune princesse dotée d’un don.

Sands of Arawiya, Tome 1 : We Hunt the Flame de Hafsah Faizal

▬ Synopsis

Lecture VO

People lived because she killed.
People died because he lived.

Zafira is the Hunter, disguising herself as a man when she braves the cursed forest of the Arz to feed her people. Nasir is the Prince of Death, assassinating those foolish enough to defy his autocratic father, the king. If Zafira was exposed as a girl, all of her achievements would be rejected; if Nasir displayed his compassion, his father would punish him in the most brutal of ways.

Both are legends in the kingdom of Arawiya—but neither wants to be.

War is brewing, and the Arz sweeps closer with each passing day, engulfing the land in shadow. When Zafira embarks on a quest to uncover a lost artifact that can restore magic to her suffering world and stop the Arz, Nasir is sent by the king on a similar mission: retrieve the artifact and kill the Hunter. But an ancient evil stirs as their journey unfolds—and the prize they seek may pose a threat greater than either can imagine.

Set in a richly detailed world inspired by ancient Arabia, We Hunt the Flame is a gripping debut of discovery, conquering fear, and taking identity into your own hands.
