Les chroniques de Nick Tome 1 Infinit
« Je suis devenu tel que je suis à cause des agissements d’une créature, et je maudis le jour où j’ai appelé Acheron Parthenopaeus “mon ami ”. Si les choses avaient été faites différemment, j’aurais une existence autrement plaisante que le cauchemar qu’elle est devenue. Je suis Nick Gautier. Et ceci est ma vie, et ce qu’elle aurait dû être... » À l’âge de 14 ans, Nick vit dans les bas-fonds de La Nouvelle-Orléans. Lorsque semble venue sa dernière heure, la rencontre fortuite de Kyrian Hunter lui donne la clef d’une nouvelle existence : celle du cercle très fermé des Chasseurs de la Nuit. Peu à peu, Nick va découvrir un monde de ténèbres et de secrets insoupçonnés. Il devra aussi faire face à ses démons. Des démons qu’il préférerait ne pas combattre seul...

Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—or whoever— is hunting her?

The intergalactic adventures of Arthur Dent begin in the first volume of the 'trilogy of five', Douglas Adams' comedy sci-fi classic The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
