La chronique des Anciens Tome 3 L treinte du serpent
Il y a quelques mois, le griffon Rune Ainissesthai a contracté un pacte avec Carling Severan, la sorcière vampire devenue Chancelière du tribunal des Anciens. Alors que Rune s’apprête à s’acquitter de sa dette envers la belle Carling, il la découvre au bord de la déraison, rongée par un mal étrange. Depuis quelque temps déjà, la vampire traverse une période de déchéance qui, tôt ou tard, la fera sombrer dans la folie et, enfin, la mort. Sa maladie serait-elle liée au baiser du serpent, la morsure qu’elle a jadis reçue en échange de la promesse d’une vie éternelle ? Nul doute que pour sauver la femme qu’il aime Rune devra résoudre cette énigme...

Despite the danger, Rune is drawn to the ailing Queen and decides to help her find a cure for the serpent's kiss - the vampyric disease that's killing her. With their desire for each other escalating just as quickly as Carling's instability spirals out of control, the sentinel and the queen will have to rely on each other if they have any hope of surviving the serpent's kiss.

Drake is a Killer vampire. Unlike the Guardians of the Night, Drake feeds on human blood, choosing victims who deserve to die. But still he works with the Guardians to protect those humans who yet have some good in them.

A Chambermaid s Diary
First published in 1900, “The Diary of a Chambermaid” is a decadent novel written by Octave Mirbeau. It was originally published as a serial between from 1891–2, and was later reworked and polished into a novel. It is presented as the diary of a chambermaid called Mademoiselle Célestine R. whose professional life is continually disrupted and diverted by the desires of her various employers. Octave Mirbeau (1848 – 1917) was a French playwright, travel writer, journalist, pamphleteer, art critic, and novelist whose work has been translated into thirty languages. Mirbeau became famous in Europe and enjoyed immense popularity, while simultaneously remaining appealing to the literary and artistic avant-garde. Other notable works by this author include: “Sébastien Roch” (1890), “Dans le ciel” (1893–1989), and “Le Jardin des supplices” (1899). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of erotic literature.
