Présentation de l'éditeur

The Secret Histories novels deliver “a terrific, adventurous blend of genres...[and] high-octane heroism,” (SFRevu) wrapped up in a thrilling and dangerous supernatural world that only New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green could dream up....

Call me Drood, Eddie Drood. Some know me as Shaman Bond and most simply don’t want to know me at all. For centuries, my family has been keeping the things that lurk on the darker side of existence as far away as possible from humans like you, without you even knowing we’re there.

Unfortunately for us, not everybody appreciates what we Droods do. Recently, I personally managed to survive yet another attempt on my life, but the rest of my relatives weren’t so lucky. My parents are missing in action. My grandfather has been murdered. And the future of my family lies in the iron grasp of the Lady Faire, an incredibly seductive, mysterious, and powerful being.

She possesses an ancient object that can save them. I have to steal it from her. Easy enough to say, difficult—and very, very dangerous—to do...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The name is Drood. Eddie Drood. 8 juin 2014
Par D. C. Stolk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
"Property Of A Lady Faire" is the eight volume in The Secret Histories series by Simon R. Green and continues the story-arc that started in previous volume "Casino Infernale." The series is best described as a cross-pollination of urban fantasy with James Bond-style widescreen adventures, with lots of hidden conspiracy tales added into the mix, and leavened with Green's wacky sense of humor. It stars a secret agent with a supernatural twist called Eddie Drood (aka Shaman Bond), who is a scion of the Drood family that has a long tradition of fighting those unnamable things that lurk on the darker side: when these things go bump in the night, the Droods bump back. Hard.

In "Property Of A Lady Faire," Eddie returns to the family manor Drood Hall for the reading of his grandmother's will. As you might guess, where there's a will, there's a complication: she bestows on him a mysterious box that supposedly will make him Patriarch of the family. Of course, this comes with one condition: he has to give up his girlfriend Molly - forever. And although neither becoming Patriarch nor giving up his lady love holds any appeal to him, this plunks him in a sticky situation with the rest of the family, who of course suspect all kinds of nefarious motives.

Besides that, Eddie and his girlfriend Molly Metcalf must also find out who is behind a group of seemingly unstoppable mercenaries, who have decimated the Department of Uncanny - and also murdered Eddie's grandfather, the Regent of Shadows. Of course, as per usual, everybody - including the Droods - thinks that Eddie and Molly murdered everyone at the Department of Uncanny. Especially because the late Regent was also behind the death of Molly's parents - and now can't answer any questions about who gave him those orders.

And as if this isn't enough, Eddie's parents have gone missing. A solution is at hand: a phantom Voice informs Eddie that it's holding his parents hostage, and that only finding an ancient object will secure their release. So Eddie and Molly have to go after the Lazarus Stone, an object that once belonged to his family and has the ability to control time and bring people back from the past. The catch: it is now in the possession of the Lady Faire, a very mysterious and powerful being - and someone who isn't willing to give It up without a fight. So it's up to Eddie and Molly to figure out a way for getting their hands on the Lazarus Stone and rescuing his parents.

As per usual in a Green novel, the action never stops, taking the reader along on a roller-coaster ride of an adventure that will have you gasping for air by the time you've finished it. Now, I probably should withdraw a star because this is just the literary equivalent of a popcorn-movie, escapist fare that doesn't require you to think too hard while reading about the improbable escapades of Eddie Drood. But it being such a light-hearted adventure is the major reason why I like this series so much. That, and the way Simon R. Green manages twists to the story that you usually didn't see coming, as well as his skill at turning even the most calamitous situation his heroes end up in, into something that will make me grin often because of the witty banter and the over-the-top semi-comic capers. Recommended!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I wish I could rate it higher........... 15 juin 2014
Par J. Ellis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I am a fan of Simon Green's novels. I own and have read almost everything he has written. I wish I could rate the latest in the Secret Histories higher but ....it is rather predictable and not that exciting. If you've read the previous entries in this series you KNEW what was going to happen several chapters earlier than you should (I had the perpetrator figured out way too soon) . I'll rate this book as a 3 star effort as the characters are still likeable, especially Eddie and Molly, and it can be improved but this series needs a literary "kick in the pants" if it is going to continue.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Yet another thoroughly fun Eddie Drood book 7 juin 2014
Par Porter G - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
There's really not much else to say except Simon Green does it again. Fast paced, action packed, multiple scenery, colorful characters, and a great plot. Twists and turns.

I do have two minor complaints: first, no one, especially Molly, uttered the words "I have a slap in my pocket with your name on it", nor mentioned that "someone needs a lie down". Come on, Simon, those are part and parcel of the Secret Histories!!!!!!! :)

Second, please, please get to what actually happened with Molly's parents. Gotta know the details. Otherwise, keep it up. Whether any e-book is worth $10.99, well, this is as close as it gets.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simon R. Green doesn't disappoint! 4 juin 2014
Par M Gaddis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I read this book in one sitting. I always try to figure out who the real villain is in these books. Simon manages to stump me almost every time. This book was no exception!

Major ass kicking battles...being a truly scary drood...and a bit of grand old nostalgia, I'm impressed! I also love how you bring in some other major players from your other series!

All in all...I can't wait for the next book!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not quite as good as the previous books but still worth buying 18 juillet 2014
Par Kenneth - Publié sur Amazon.com

Not quite as good as the previous books but still worth buying. I think the issue is the book is a little to fast pace with not enough character interaction. Some plot threads were just skinned over. A next book is mentioned at the end. I WILL buy it and hope it is better.
