    Les précepteurs d'Urgaïa by Marc Feuermann

    Montreal: Editions Dédicaces, 2012. Paperback. New. Neuf années se sont écoulées depuis la révolution et la fondation de la Nouvelle Fédération.

A l'autre extrémité de la Fédération, sur la lointaine Triton, l'organisation de Virginia Enora connaît elle aussi un succès grandissant. Et voilà que Narcisse, l'empereur déchu des mondes d'Uranus, resurgit d'un passé qu'on avait presque oublié. Le temps n'a en rien atténué sa soif de vengeance et son plan machiavélique pour frapper la capitale de la Fédération semble infaillible. Aménor et ses alliés sauront-ils déjouer les menaces qui pèsent sur la jeune Fédération ? Et surtout, y arriveront-ils tout en préservant le grand secret qui se cache dans les brumes glacées d'Uranus ?
