Heartfire

Traduit de l'ANGLAIS

À propos

Peggy is a Torch, able to see the fire burning in each person's heart. She can follow the paths of each person's future, and know each person's most intimate secrets. From the moment of Alvin Maker's birth, when the Unmaker first strove to kill him, she has protected him. Now they are married, and Peggy is a part of Alvin's heart as well as his life. But Alvin's destiny has taken them on separate journeys. Alvin has gone north into New England, where knacks are considered witchcraft, and their use is punished by death. Peggy has been drawn south, to the British Crown Colonies and the court of King Arthur Stuart in exile. For she has seen a terrible future bloom in the heartfires of every person in America, a future of war and destruction. One slender path exists that leads through the bloodshed, and it is Peggy's quest to set the world on that path to peace.

Orson Scott Card

Orson Scott Card est né en 1951. D'aucuns considèrent Le cycle d'Ender comme le chef-d'oeuvre de cet auteur contemporain majeur. De confession mormone, il n'a de cesse de défendre une science-fiction initiatique et humaniste. Roman parallèle à La stratégie Ender, La stratégie de l'ombre propose un point de vue différent sur les événements qui s'y déroulent et peut se lire indépendamment.
