Night Vale : une sympathique communauté au cœur du désert, où de mystérieuses lumières nous survolent pendant que nous faisons tous semblant de dormir. Un endroit à part, peuplé de spectres, d’anges et d’extraterrestres, où prennent vie théories conspirationnistes et légendes urbaines... une ville où il ne fait pas bon croiser les créatures encapuchonnées qui ont investi le nouveau parc à chiens interdit au public, où la police secrète a pignon sur rue, où l’acquisition d’un poisson rouge vous fera vous poser des questions sur son régime de souris, où certains jours de la semaine sont annulés à cause de contraintes de calendrier : bienvenue à Night Vale. « Cela fait des années que je suis fan de Bienvenue à Night Vale, et je me suis délecté de ces histoires intelligentes, tordues, belles, étranges et merveilleuses. Cet ouvrage, encore meilleur que je l’espérais, reprend tout cela et plus. Il s’agit sans doute du meilleur livre que j’aie lu depuis des années. » Patrick Rothfuss, auteur du Nom du vent

New York Times Bestseller A page-turning mystery exploring faith and science from the authors of the New York Times bestselling novel Welcome to Night Vale and the creators of the #1 international podcast of the same name. “It Devours! is different from other mystery novels. It is as captivating and light as any mystery novel can be but explores one of the most complex issues: the conflict between science and reason on the one hand and, on the other hand, religion and cult.”— Washington Book Review Nilanjana Sikdar is an outsider to the town of Night Vale. Working for Carlos, the town’s top scientist, she relies on fact and logic as her guiding principles. But all of that is put into question when Carlos gives her a special assignment investigating a mysterious rumbling in the desert wasteland outside of town. This investigation leads her to the Joyous Congregation of the Smiling God, and to Darryl, one of its most committed members. Caught between her beliefs in the ultimate power of science and her growing attraction to Darryl, she begins to suspect the Congregation is planning a ritual that could threaten the lives of everyone in town. Nilanjana and Darryl must search for common ground between their very different world views as they are faced with the Congregation’s darkest and most terrible secret. A page-turning mystery exploring the intersections of faith and science, the growing relationship between two young people who want desperately to trust each other, and the terrifying, toothy power of the Smiling God, It Devours! will entertain both fans of Welcome to Night Vale and those discovering its extraordinary world for the first time.

The New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy makes her brilliant adult debut with this mesmerizing story in the tradition of The Lovely Bones, Her Fearful Symmetry, and The Ocean at the End of the Lane—a tale of family, ghosts, secrets, and mystery, in which the lives of the living and the dead intersect in shocking, surprising, and moving ways. Wealthy Richard Walker has just died, leaving behind his country house full of rooms packed with the detritus of a lifetime. His estranged family—bitter ex-wife Caroline, troubled teenage son Trenton, and unforgiving daughter Minna—have arrived for their inheritance. But the Walkers are not alone. Prim Alice and the cynical Sandra, long dead former residents bound to the house, linger within its claustrophobic walls. Jostling for space, memory, and supremacy, they observe the family, trading barbs and reminiscences about their past lives. Though their voices cannot be heard, Alice and Sandra speak through the house itself—in the hiss of the radiator, a creak in the stairs, the dimming of a light bulb. The living and dead are each haunted by painful truths that will soon surface with explosive force. When a new ghost appears, and Trenton begins to communicate with her, the spirit and human worlds collide—with cataclysmic results. Elegantly constructed and brilliantly paced, Rooms is an enticing and imaginative ghost story and a searing family drama that is as haunting as it is resonant.
