Read full description of the books L'étoile de la sor'cière:Ce sera bientôt l'ultime combat contre le Seigneur Noir.
Elena la sorcière a regagné l'île de Val'loa où elle espère reconstituer ses forces. C'est alors qu'Harlequin Quail entre en scène, un petit homme en costume de bouffon qui se prétend espion. Il revient tout juste de la forteresse de Noircastel où subsisterait l'un des portails du Weir, le plus puissant, avec lequel, dans une lune à peine, le Seigneur Noir instaurera un règne maléfique. Elena et la puissante magie du Journal Sanglant peuvent encore l'arrêter, mais Noircastel est un bastion impénétrable, et seul le Seigneur Noir sait où le portail est caché.
Traqués par les sbires de l'ennemi, menacés par un traître dans leurs rangs, Elena et ses courageux compagnons vont tenter d'achever une quête désespérée. En route, de nombreuses questions trouveront leur réponse, maintes illusions voleront en éclats et les liens de la magie et de l'amour seront éprouvés jusqu'au point de rupture...
Read information about the authorJames Rollins and James Clemens are two of the pen names of American veterinarian Jim Czajkowski (born 1961), author of bestselling fantasy and action-packed adventure-thrillers. He sold his veterinary practice in Sacramento, California, to concentrate full-time on writing.
James is an amateur spelunker and a certified scuba diver. These pastimes provide much fodder for his novels, which are often set in underground or underwater locations.
Among those who have inspired him, James cites the authors of the Doc Savage series. As a youth, James had acquired an extensive collection of Doc Savage novels, but, he says, he remained oblivious to their influence on him as a novelist until one of his fans brought this matter to his attention.
Under the pen name James Clemens, James also writes fantasy novels including Wit'ch Fire, Wit'ch Storm, Wit'ch War, Wit'ch Gate, Wit'ch Star, Shadowfall (2005), and Hinterland (2006) .
In 2007, he was hired to write the novelization of the script for the movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Born in Chicago, Illinois, James graduated from the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri in 1985 with a doctorate (D.V.M) in veterinary medicine. His undergraduate work focused on evolutionary biology. Thereafter, he moved to Sacramento, CA, where he established his veterinary practice.
As a boy, James was fascinated by stories of the exploits of Howard Carter and his discovery of the tomb of the ancient Egyptian pharaoh, King Tutankhamun (King Tut). This true-life tale later inspired James' novel, Excavation, in which the main character, archaeologist Henry Conklin, and his nephew Sam discover a lost Inca city in the mountains of the Andean jungle that contains a treasure—and a curse.
As a youth, James also enjoyed Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan novels, L. Frank Baum's Oz series, and C. S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia. In general, James was also inspired by such authors as Jules Verne and H. G. Wells, whose works he used as a springboard for creating similar contemporary novels filled with what he refers to as "the three M's of fiction: magic, mayhem, and monsters."
Czajkowski sold his first novel, Witch Fire (1999), under the pen name of James Clemens through Terry Brooks' publisher. Brooks had been one of the judges of the Maui Writers' Conference contest, in which James had entered a manuscript he had recently completed.
