A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

On the home world of the bat-like S'sinn, a last-ditch effort is underway to prevent a new war between humanity and the S'sinn that would destroy the multi-race Commonwealth. Jarrikk, a S'sinn, and Kathryn, a human, are both empaths, able to sense others' feelings, and use those skills as Translators. They fear and hate the others' species, but have sworn an oath, so they Link, exchanging memories and emotions. They hit on a dangerous plan to fake Translation. They prevent immediate war, but destroy their abilities in the process. Jarrikk no longer has reason to live, and sets out to perform the suicide he was turned away from years before. Kathryn fails to prevent his attempt, but manages to save his life - and in the process creates a one-of-a-kind bond with him even stronger than that created by the symbiote. They risk everything to stop their own races from engulfing the galaxy in war - and perhaps save each other in the process.

About the Author:

E.C. Blake, who has written under the pen name Edward Willett, was born in New Mexico, “Land of Enchantment,” and the state’s nickname seems to have rubbed off: he started writing fantastical stories in elementary school and wrote his first fantasy novel in high school. He’s been a newspaper reporter and editorial cartoonist, a magazine editor, a writing instructor and a professional actor, and has written (under another name) more than 30 works of nonfiction, ranging from biographies to science books to history books, but his first love has always been fantasy. He now lives in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, with his wife and a daughter whose favorite stories all involve “sword-fighting princesses.” Come to think of it, so do his. He can be found at ecblake.com.
