Publisher's Summary

À peine sorti de prison, Ombre apprend que sa femme et son meilleur ami viennent de mourir dans un accident de voiture et qu'ils étaient amants. Seul et désemparé, il accepte de travailler pour l'énigmatique Voyageur qui se prétend Roi de l'Amérique. Entraîné dans une aventure où ceux qu'il rencontre semblent en savoir plus sur ses origines que lui-même, Ombre va découvrir que son rôle dans les desseins de Voyageur est bien plus dangereux qu'il aurait pu l'imaginer.

Car, alors que menace un orage d'apocalypse, se prépare une guerre sans merci entre les anciens dieux saxons des premiers migrants, passés à la postérité sous les traits des super-héros de comics, et les nouveaux dieux barbares de la technologie et du consumérisme qui prospèrent aujourd'hui en Amérique...

Un roman fantastique culte, lu par le doubleur en français d'Ombre dans la série télé produite en 2017.

The performance by the reader is exquisite.

First of all, this audiobook is in French. However, if you understand the language (as I do) then you will considerably appreciate this magnificent work.

French Gods

Why on earth would Audible not clearly show when a book is foreign language or warn you about what language you're buying? What a waste of my time.

Misleading

This book was not labeled as the French translation. I was confused and frustrated to not have it in the language depicted in the title.

Surprise it’s in French.

Unlike all other foreign language books, this doesn’t have “[French]” suffix on the the title.
