Celle qui sait (She Who Knows)
“You are the one who knows.
The currents carry you and bring you back to where you want to be.
You know what lies beyond things, beyond the void and beyond the stars.
You are the one who sees this world and the others.”
This sequel to QuanTika takes place in a parallel universe to that of the trilogy.
On their return from the Builders' planet, the protagonists of QuanTika discover that the ice planet Gemma has changed drastically: it is now Indiga, a water-covered exoplanet where humans and Builders live together. And the melting of Gemma's ice is due to much more than an orbital change: The Great Arc has generated a new line of universes, thus altering reality…
Between clashes of civilizations, alien creatures and children with strange gifts, the universe is undergoing a serious transformation and the human colony is in great danger.
“It is a pleasure to find all the ingredients that made the first trilogy a success, namely the mix of space opera and planet opera against a backdrop of quantum physics and growing inter-species tensions.
Identity, communication, environment, first contact, difference, culture, science: these are the strong themes that feed the novel.
A second volume will conclude this new story, which is far from having delivered all its secrets. So much the better!”
