• « Bien qu'ils aient prétendu tout le contraire, le Ralliement militaire et le conseil civil n'ont pas choisi les meilleurs éléments. En réalité, ce qu'ils ont fait, ou tenté de faire, ç'a été d'atteindre l'équilibre qui conférerait aux membres de l'expédition le plus de chances de survie.
    Douze hommes et femmes dans un énorme véhicule blindé ne forment pas un si gros risque. Ils ont beau être porteurs de beaucoup d'espoirs et de rêves, si on devait les perdre, leur absence serait supportable. On peut se passer d'eux et ils le savent. ».
    Une contamination biologique a conduit l'espèce humaine à la chute et transforme les hommes en zombies. Les rescapés les appellent les « affams ». Un groupe de scientifiques et de militaires a embarqué dans un laboratoire mobile et blindé pour aller étudier ces affams. Parmi eux se trouve Stephen, quatorze ans, autiste et surdoué, dont la mission est de sortir la nuit pour observer les victimes.
    Sauveront-ils l'humanité ?
    La Part du monstre se déroule dans le même univers que Celle qui a tous les dons et le précède.

  • Remparts t.1 : le livre de Koli Nouv.

    À l'instar de Niourk de Stefan Wul, Le Livre de Koli imagine un futur si dévasté qu'il s'apparente presque au passé. Au lieu d'évoluer, l'humanité a régressé et vit désormais en petites communautés, pauvres et agricoles, coupées les unes des autres par la forêt. Génétiquement modifiés, les arbres et les plantes ont acquis au fil des siècles la capacité de pousser très rapidement, en même temps que le réflexe d'attaquer tout être humain passant à portée de branche. C'est pourquoi le jeune Koli a été élevé dans la crainte de cette nature aussi menaçante qu'envahissante.
    Heureusement, quelques élus sont capables de faire fonctionner une ancienne technologie (les restes de notre science du XXe siècle) et assurent ainsi la protection du village. Ils jouissent d'un prestige révérencieux et échappent aux corvées quotidiennes.
    Rien d'étonnant donc à ce que Koli, à la veille de ses 15 ans, rêve d'intégrer cette élite et d'endosser leur autorité. Mais la technologie ne s'éveille pas pour lui, et il se voit condamné à une vie de dur labeur sans perspective de récompense...
    C'est plus qu'il n'en peut supporter : Koli décide de voler la technologie qu'il n'a pas su gagner. Loin de lui faciliter la vie, cela marquera le début des ennuis : banni de son village, il devra affronter la forêt, ses dangers et ses secrets.

  • Koli is a boy who is afraid of trees. After the world broke down, plants and animals were dying, so people made them stronger. Now everyone is afraid of them. Koli is also afraid of Shunned Men, the outcasts outside the village walls. And he's afraid to tell the girl he likes how he feels. But if Koli can become a Rampart, if he can wake the technology of the old world, he knows he won't have to be afraid of anything again. He's wrong.
