    Summary

    Before 1936, I was alone.

    Russia was in a state of chaos after the Bolshevik takeover. Lenin was gaining power at a frightening rate. Outside of Russia, the world was at war with itself. After Archduke Ferdinand's assassination, Europe was plunged into turmoil. Everything was going insane.

    I wasn't alone in the familial sense. Although my mother died giving birth to my younger sister and my father was killed in Petrograd, I still had my sisters. Katyushka was my older sister. She treated me with a maternal gentleness; in fact, it was she who made me my scarf.

    Natalia was my younger sister. She was very attached to me, and some might've called it obsessive, but I didn't blame her. When she was three, I had fallen very ill, and I almost didn't make it. Katyushka soon got over my near death, but since Natalia was so young, her mind never fully recovered.

    But even with my sisters, I was still alone. I was always trying to find some way for us to scrape by, which made me spend most waking hours away from home. The friendships I had were shaky, at best. Whenever I tried to talk to anyone, they would push me out of their ways, thinking I was another street boy.

    Before 1936, I was alone.

    Summary

    If you asked most people of Daniel J. Howell’s lot in life, they’d tell you it was pretty good. A small career writing for a fashionable magazine, the heir to one of New York’s most prestigious hotels, the convenience of youth and an ailing millionaire father… what more could an 18-year-old ask for?

    So when a night at the symphony turns into the start of a whole new double life in the city’s queer underworld, the heir to New York’s most fashionable hotel will have to learn what is what when you're dating a cabaret singer, and who is who when that singer becomes a troubled star.

    So it’s nothing but fate to blame when things start to fall apart. The catch? It’s the last half of the 1920s–

    And this romance is illegal.

    Summary

    Steve expects to see flames in front of him, to see flames on him as they eat the dismembered pieces of his physical shell, but when he opens his eyes, he doesn’t see fire. He doesn’t see the dark grey clouds through the plane’s glass window in front of him. What he sees instead is a woman in front of him wearing a sharp suit and an unreadable expression on her face. Despite the confusion and the bleariness, Steve wonders why a woman is wearing a suit, but he doesn't get the chance to ask as the woman steps forward.

    “Captain Trevor. Welcome back.”

    Summary

    In the last days of the First World War, Dr. Watson returns from the service for which he departed in "His Last Bow," and looks for a new kind of work. He joins Dr. Arthur Hurst in his radical treatment of shell-shocked soldiers. But their work on the forefront of medical research, locked in battle against the destruction of the war, is disrupted by violent death. In addition to the obvious danger near at hand, there is the risk that this will discredit Hurst’s radical methods, and shake his confidence in his ability to cure those who so desperately need his help. Dr. Watson does the only thing he can do: he calls in Holmes. The case will require their joint expertise, and all the wisdom of their shared experience.

    Summary

    "Armistice" est mon premier OS.
    C'est une histoire belle, et triste, comme la vie peut l'être parfois.
    Elle est inspirée des "Croix de bois", l'émouvant roman de Roland Dorgelès, et de la chanson "A tous les enfants" de Boris Vian.
    Elle parle de Harry et de Louis, de la guerre de 1914-1918, et d'un immense amour.
    Merci à tous ceux qui auront envie de la découvrir.
    Bonne lecture.

    Summary

    The Dictator.
    No one knows where he comes from, who he is or that he has a plan to take over the world.
    One rainy day, this 'Dictator' tells his assistants about a plan and the prophecy that would cause it to fail.
    The plan states that he will make sure that all of the countries have at least one child. When ready, he'll kill everyone he needs and wants to. He'd take over the world.
    The only thing that stands in his way is the prophecy. A prophecy that one of these children will rise up, start an uprising against him and tear him down. He must find and kill this child at all cost before it does any harm to his perfect little plan.
    This 'prophecy child' is a girl named Kate, the daughter of Germany.
    When thrown into many tests, she defies The Dictator, proving to him that she is, in fact, The Prophecy Child that needs to be destroyed.
    Kate didn't know that she was throwing everyone she loves and herself into imminent danger. When she figures out about The Dictator's plan, she learns of the war she unknowingly threw herself into.
    Kate realizes that because of her ignorance, she must push herself to her every limit, or she and everyone she loves will die.
