Le troisième tome de la célèbre saga de Kenneth Oppel!

La terre tremble et se fissure soudain, aspirant Griffon, un chauve-souriceau aux ailes d'argent, dans ses entrailles. Ombre, son père, se lance dans un dangereux périple pour le sortir des Enfers, le monde malsain qui le retient prisonnier. Mais quelqu'un d'autre poursuit aussi griffon. un être maléfique que tous croyaient disparu à jamais!

 

The forest heaves and splits in a terrible quake, and Griffin, a newborn Silverwing bat, is sucked down a fissure deep into the earth. Shade, Griffin's father, soon realizes that his son has been drawn into the Underworld and embarks on the most dangerous of journeys to rescue him. Shade knows he must find Griffin quickly -- legend says that if the living stumble into the land of the dead, they have only a short time before death claims them, too. But something else is hunting Griffin -- a deadly foe Shade hoped he would never see again. Who will find Griffin first?
