Ce livre est la transition parfaite entre la saga Harry Potter et la trilogie des Magiciens. [...] En plus de tout ça, on trouve, en vrac : des références culturelles géniales, l'utilisation de la technologie par les sorciers, une guerre inter-espèces, la lutte contre le sexisme, des super-héros discrets, quelques insultes bien envoyées [...] un roman one-shot à lire absolument pour tous ceux qui aiment la magie, les histoires de grands ados (les héros sont majeurs) et, ok, les histoires d'amour un peu.
Ladainian Abernaker is a very old vampire, bitter and maladjusted to modern life. His only passion: the blues. His only friend: Ezequiel, a raven. Naturally, he lives in Chicago, a city he has seen born, grow and prosper. A refugee in his music bar, Willie's, he lives through the years with this one obsession: to perpetuate the blues of Chicago, a tone so particular that it is the only thing that soothes his tortured mind. The outside world is only there to allow him to satisfy this fixed idea; it has no other interest in his eyes. Thus, he works as an expert hit-man to earn money for his craze.
A saga dedicated to an atypical vampire, an ambiance inspired by film noir, independent episodes ... Don't hesitate to discover the world of Ladainian!
