Nous oublions qui nous sommes vraiment. Nos esprits sont des fragments d'infini. Notre idéation est sans limite.
Et nous avons la chance d'avoir été insérés dans un univers étrange et merveilleux et nous nous regardons vivre absurdement alors que nous devrions ouvrir les mains vers le soleil.
Il fallait que j'écrive un livre pour enluminer la vie, apporter le brasillement à la routine, la perspective à l'horizontal, la couleur au temps, suggérer qu'il existe une forme de méditation (nouvelle?) basée sur l'image mentale, plutôt que l'absence de toute pensée.

Eve and her sisters are widely admired by their classmates—they’re beautiful, intelligent, talented, and command respect with their very presence. They have everything in the world at... More > their fingertips, and everything in the world going for them.
At least, they do until they’re kidnapped and taken to a place they’ve never heard of and told they are in truth beings known as “sorceresses” who have reincarnated multiple times for the sake of fighting a war that has been waging for twenty thousand years.
Eve, Estella, Iris, Dolly, and Emerald will have to learn not only the language, but also how to fight with weapons and their freshly unsealed magic if they want to survive this time, and that’s not always easy when you suddenly find yourself without electricity, and around men who claim to be your husband.< Less
Alex Forrest kept her life very simple and organized—go to school, get top grades, help her scatterbrained mother and workaholic father take care of her autistic younger brother, stay out of... More > trouble.
That all comes to an end, though, when she finds a dying girl right next to her favorite café.
Unable to save the girl's life, Alex decides to help Private Investigator, Elda Morgan—an alcoholic chain smoker with a temper as bad as she is beautiful—search for the killer, who Elda insists will eventually come after Alex herself. And as if that wasn't enough to deal with, Alex also has to come to terms with abilities she has that Elda and her assistant, Damian, make impossible to ignore, especially in the shadows of the mortal world, where the vampiric murderer is waiting to pounce.< Less
Anna is still reeling from the Battle of Scoresby Sund a year later, and now has to worry about the new witch in town. Amelia herself isn’t much of a bother, but the curse that follows her is... More > another matter—one that seems hell bent on ending Amelia’s life, and will use vampires to do it.

Even a wedding can’t go entirely as planned for Anna and James. With the warnings of a titan—a fallen god—Anna and her allies know where Carl and Marcus will strike next: the... More > Himalayas.
But first, Anna has an unexpected trip to take—one fourteen years into the past, summoned there accidentally by a seventeen year old Eve to a place Anna had only ever heard of as “the Capitol.”
Now, in a foreign land right out of the Middle Ages, Anna finds herself faced with a different war. Knowing the future, trying not to change it, all she can do is wait for Eve to remember who she really is so she can send Anna back to her own time, to her own war, before the irreparable happens in either time period.

More > meet his brother, Erik, and a vague conversation with him leads Anna to wonder if her biological father was as human as Chun said he was.

With the appearance of her biological father, the reappearance of James’, and Jezebel’s constant interference, Anna isn’t the only one who thinks she may actually go insane this time.< Less
