  • Par une nuit fatale à Alasea, pays ravagé par une malédiction, trois mages accomplissent un ultime sacrifice dans l'espoir, de préserver le bien.

    Cinq cents ans jour pour jour après cette nuit funeste, une jeune fille hérite d'un pouvoir perdu depuis longtemps. Mais avant qu'elle puisse en saisir les implications, le Seigneur Noir lance ses hordes des ténèbres pour s'emparer de la magie embryonnaire qu'elle détient. Dans sa fuite, Elena est précipitée vers une issue terrible... mais aussi vers la compagnie d'alliés inattendus, avec lesquels elle va tenter de combattre les forces maléfiques et de secourir un empire autrefois glorieux.

  • Elena porte désormais la marque de la sor'cière dans la paume de sa main.

    Cette tache écarlate est la preuve d'un don fabuleux à la puissance inimaginable: un pouvoir sauvage, séduisant, difficile à contrôler. Seule celle qui maîtrise la magie sanglante peut s'opposer aux créatures et au mal du Seigneur Noir. Pourtant Elena n'est pas encore maîtresse de son pouvoir. Protégée par un guerrier sans âge et une bande de renégats, elle part en quête d'une cité perdue où, selon la prophétie, un ouvrage mystique détient la clé de la défaite du Seigneur Noir.

    Mais si celui-ci la trouve en premier, Elena deviendra son arme la plus terrible...

  • Elena et son armée de hors-la-loi ont vaincu les suppôts du mal qui occupaient l'île de Val'loa et déverrouillé les secrets mystiques du Journal Sanglant.

    Mais durant la bataille, l'infâme Seigneur Noir a mis en place les portails du Weir auxquels il puise l'essentiel de son pouvoir. Pour les trouver et les détruire, les alliés d'Elena embarquent pour de dangereuses destinations à bord de vaisseaux aériens... Aucun des rebelles ne rentrera indemne et certains ne reviendront pas. Elena elle-même, dans l'antre de son ennemi juré, parviendra-t-elle à découvrir l'identité du Seigneur Noir ?

  • La magie sanglante est un pouvoir ravageur.

    La jeune Elena le tient entre ses mains... et bien plus encore. Car tout dépend du Journal Sanglant, un puissant talisman forgé cinq siècles auparavant. Seuls les secrets contenus dans ses pages permettront à Elena de vaincre le maléfique Seigneur Noir. Malheureusement, le Journal Sanglant est caché à Val'loa, la cité légendaire sur laquelle règne Shorkan, le bras droit du Seigneur Noir. Pour s'en emparer, Elena aura bien besoin de ses compagnons, dont le guerrier manchot Er'ril, le seul homme capable de déverrouiller les protections magiques, ou encore de son dragon Ragnar'k...

  • Dans une lune à peine, le Seigneur Noir imposera son règne maléfique.

    La forteresse de Noircastel abrite le plus puissant portail du Weir grâce auquel le terrible mage espère asseoir son autorité. Il est encore temps de l'arrêter, mais lui seul sait où cette porte est cachée. L'heure est enfin venue pour Elena et ses compagnons d'achever leur quête désespérée. L'ultime combat contre le Seigneur Noir approche... "L'histoire devient plus captivante de livre en livre" - Terry Brooks.

  • On a fateful night five centuries ago, three mages made a desperate last stand, sacrificing everything to preserve the only hope of goodness in the beautiful, doomed land of Alasea. Now, on the anniversary of that ominous night, a girlchild ripens into the heritage of lost power. But before she can even comprehend her terrible new gift, the Dark Lord dispatches his winged monsters to capture her and bring him the embryonic magic she embodies. Fleeing the minions of darkness, Elena is swept toward certain doomand into the company of unexpected allies. There she forms a band of the hunted and the cursed, the outcasts and the outlaws, to battle the unstoppable forces of evil and rescue a onceglorious empire ...From the Paperback edition.

  • With Wit'ch Fire and Wit'ch Storm, two novels of extraordinary imaginative power and originality, James Clemens staked his claim to being among the finest writers of fantasy to emerge this decade. Now Clemens adds to his masterpiece in the making with Wit'ch War, the dazzling third volume in the epic saga of The Banned and the Banished . . .
    In her hands, the young wit'ch Elena holds the awesome energies of blood magick--and more. For the fate of all Alasea hinges on her recovery of the Blood Diary, a potent talisman forged five hundred years ago, then locked away behind wards too strong for any mage to break. But only with the secrets recorded in its pages can Elena defeat the evil magicks of the Dark Lord. The challenge? The Diary lies hidden in A'loa Glen, the fabled city that belongs to Shorkan, chief lieutenant of the Dark Lord, and his fearsome army.
    Now, with the aid of the ocean-dwelling Sy-wen and her great dragon, Elena prepares a desperate invasion of A'loa Glen. At her side stands the one-armed warrior Er'ril, her faithful protector and the only man who knows how to unlock the wards surrounding the Blood Diary--a man who also happens to be the brother of the dreaded Shorkan.
    Meanwhile, Elena's brother, whose magick brings him prophetic dreams, has glimpsed a future in which Elena falls by the deadly sword of . . . Er'ril. But his visions do not always come true. How can he act against his sister's trusted guardian on the basis of a future berayal that may never happen? For Elena's sake, and for the sake of all Alasea, how can he afford not to?

  • Four millennia have passed since the gods came to Myrillia, creating the nine lands of peace as a haven from the nightmarish, accursed Hinterlands. In all this time nothing has disturbed the harmony of the nine lands.

    But now the goddess of the Summering Isles has been murdered. The only witness is Tylar de Noche, a crippled and disgraced former Shadowknight. As he holds the dying goddess, her last breath bestows a powerful blessing on him-a mark that heals his broken body. A mark that many see as proof that he killed a god. A mark that unleashes a powerful force of darkness within him.

    Chased across Myrillia by enemies both human and ethereal, Tylar must uncover and face down a being powerful enough to kill an immortal-the true godslayer. For if he fails, all of Myrillia will fall into shadow.
