Après une vie de primes et d’effusions de sang, Viv raccroche son épée pour la dernière fois.

L’orc usé par les combats veut prendre un nouveau départ en ouvrant le tout premier café de la ville de Thune. Mais d’anciens et de nouveaux rivaux se dressent sur la route du succès, sans parler du fait que personne n’a la moindre idée de ce qu’est réellement le café.

Si Viv veut mettre la lame derrière elle et faire de ses projets une réalité, elle ne pourra pas faire cavalier seul.

Mais la vraie récompense des chemins inexplorés, ce sont les voyageurs que l’on rencontre en chemin. Et qu’ils soient attirés ensemble par une magie ancienne, une pâtisserie feuilletée ou une tasse fraîchement préparée, ils peuvent devenir des partenaires, une famille et quelque chose de plus profond que ce dont elle aurait jamais pu rêver.


After a lifetime of bounties and bloodshed, Viv is hanging up her sword for the last time.

The battle-weary orc aims to start fresh, opening the first ever coffee shop in the city of Thune. But old and new rivals stand in the way of success—not to mention the fact that no one has the faintest idea what coffee actually is.

If Viv wants to put the blade behind her and make her plans a reality, she won’t be able to go it alone.

But the true rewards of the uncharted path are the travelers you meet along the way. And whether drawn together by ancient magic, flaky pastry, or a freshly brewed cup, they may become partners, family, and something deeper than she ever could have dreamed.

“Warga follows her cybernetic narrator from first awareness to final resting place—and stony indeed will be any readers who remain unmoved by the journey. The intelligences here may be (mostly) artificial, but the feelings are genuine and deep.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“A touching, fact-filled novel [that] centers the maturation of gutsy Mars rover Resilience.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“An endlessly inventive story, replete with gentle humor and playful pondering, offering a unique perspective on everything from music and electronics to loyalty and love. Res is written in a distinct, precise voice and sweetly countered by interspersed letters to the rover from a young girl intimately connected to his being, and both thoughtfully evolve as the years pass. A profound and poignant exploration of the universe both outside and within us all.” — Booklist (starred review)

“Will thrill fans of both adventure and robot stories and also provide intellectual sustenance for the deep thinkers…Through the character of a robot Warga probes issues of identity, attachment, and the purpose of life, offering readers an unusual but heartfelt example of the importance of staying true to yourself, quirks and all.” — Horn Book Magazine

“A fictional Mars Rover narrates its own journey from the robotics lab to the Red Planet. The format of brief journal entries and letters is engagingly readable for even reluctant readers, and the humorous interactions between ­robots and machines keep the science-heavy story moving at a reasonable pace. A fresh format and timely topic engage readers in this uplifting and deeply human sci-fi story.” — School Library Journal

“As a mechanical engineer and STEM-lover, this beautiful book filled my heart right to the top. Res may be a rover, but he taught me what it means to be fully alive.”  — Christina Soontornvat, two-time Newbery Honor recipient
