Le garçon a vécu toute sa vie enfermé dans une chambre remplie de livres, plus vieille que des empires et plus grande que des villes.

La jeune fille a été arrachée à la périphérie de la civilisation pour suivre une formation de bibliothécaire et étudier les mystères de la grande bibliothèque au cœur de son royaume.

Ils n’étaient pas censés se rencontrer. Mais dans la bibliothèque, ils se sont rencontrés.

Leurs histoires s’enroulent l’une autour de l’autre, à travers les mondes et le temps. C’est une histoire de vérité, de mensonges et de cœurs, et de l’estompement de l’un dans l’autre. Un voyage au cours duquel la connaissance érode la certitude et où, même si la plume est plus puissante que l’épée, le sang sera versé et les villes brûlées.


The boy has lived his whole life trapped within a book-choked chamber older than empires and larger than cities.

The girl has been plucked from the outskirts of civilization to be trained as a librarian, studying the mysteries of the great library at the heart of her kingdom.

They were never supposed to meet. But in the library, they did.

Their stories spiral around each other, across worlds and time. This is a tale of truth and lies and hearts, and the blurring of one into another. A journey on which knowledge erodes certainty and on which, though the pen may be mightier than the sword, blood will be spilled and cities burned.
