We Free The Stars by Hafsah Faizal

The battle on Sharr is over. The dark forest has fallen. Altair may be captive, but Zafira, Nasir, and Kifah are bound for Sultan’s Keep, determined to finish the plan he set in motion: restoring the hearts of the Sisters of Old to the minarets of each caliphate, and finally returning magic to all of Arawiya. But they are low on resources and allies alike, and the kingdom teems with fear of the Lion of the Night’s return.

As the zumra plots to overthrow the kingdom’s darkest threat, Nasir fights to command the magic in his blood. He must learn to hone his power into a weapon, to wield not only against the Lion but against his father, trapped under the Lion’s control. Zafira battles a very different darkness festering in her through her bond with the Jawarat—a darkness that hums with voices, pushing her to the brink of her sanity and to the edge of a chaos she dare not unleash. In spite of the darkness enclosing ever faster, Nasir and Zafira find themselves falling into a love they can’t stand to lose…but time is running out to achieve their ends, and if order is to be restored, drastic sacrifices will have to be made.

Lush and striking, hopeful and devastating, We Free the Stars is the masterful conclusion to the Sands of Arawiya duology by New York Times–bestselling author Hafsah Faizal.

Something is killing the children T1 de James Tynion IV

Lorsque les enfants de la petite ville d’Archer’s Peak se mettent à disparaître les uns après les autres – certains sans laisser la moindre trace, d’autres dans des circonstances extrêmement violentes – la peur, la colère et la suspicion envahissent l’entourage des victimes et laissent la police locale dans le plus grand désarroi. Aussi, quand le jeune James, seul témoin oculaire du massacre de ses trois camarades, sort de son mutisme pour parler de créatures terrifiantes vivant dans la pénombre, le coupable semble tout trouvé. Son seul espoir viendra d’une étrange inconnue, Erica Slaughter, tueuse de monstres capable de voir l’impensable, ce que l’inconscient des adultes ont depuis longtemps préférer occulter.

Something is killing the children T2 de James Tynion IV

En tant que coupable idéal, James avait perdu espoir de se faire entendre au sujet du meurtre de ses amis auquel il a assisté, impuissant. Après tout, ses arguments de défense étaient tout sauf crédibles. Des monstres auraient investi les environs d’Angel Peak et seraient à l’origine des récentes disparitions d’enfants… James rencontre alors Erica Slaughter qui lui confirmera l’existence de ces créatures. S’il n’a pas tout à fait sombré dans la folie, James n’en est pas rassuré pour autant. Mais il dépassera ses appréhensions pour apporter toute l’aide possible à la tueuse de monstres. aura eu le mérite de confirmer qu’il n’est pas totalement fou. La mission d’Erica est de les éliminer, et James compte bien lui apporter son aide. Tout comme Tommy, le frère d’une des victimes. Lui aussi les voit désormais, et ils ne seront pas de trop de trois pour venir à bout de l’invasion qui menace Archer’s Peak.
