His name was Kovall. They tortured him beyond all pain. Yet he survived. He put himself back together. But Kovall is dead; in his place is Valrin, and the hunt begins. Although he wants to understand, he really longs to seek revenge. What does it matter how powerful the enemy is? Valrin will not let go of his prey. From planet to asteroid, from vessel to arcology, little by little he moves forward on the trail of a plot with cosmic dimensions whose stakes are nothing less than the domination of the galaxy.
La mécanique du talion takes us on a hallucinating quest right to the heart of the universe and its myths.
