Mercy Thompson, car mechanic and shapeshifter, faces a threat unlike any other in this thrilling entry in the number one New York Times best-selling series. I am Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman. My only superpowers are that I turn into a 35 pound coyote and fix Volkswagens. But I have friends in odd places and a pack of werewolves at my back. It looks like I'm going to need them. Centuries ago, the fae dwelt in Underhill - until she locked her doors against them. They left behind their great castles and troves of magical artifacts. They abandoned their prisoners and their pets. Without the fae to mind them, those creatures who remained behind roamed freely through Underhill wreaking havoc. Only the deadliest survived. Now one of those prisoners has escaped. It can look like anyone, any creature it chooses. But if it bites you, it controls you. It lives for chaos and destruction. It can make you do anything - even kill the person you love the most. Now it is here, in the Tri-Cities. In my territory. It won't, can't, remain. Not if I have anything to say about it.

In this powerful entry in the number-one New York Times best-selling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves.... My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic. And a coyote shape-shifter. And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack. Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadnt stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who live in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and interact with the fae. The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming, and her name is Death. But we are pack, and we have given our word. We will die to keep it.

La différence entre les champions et les espoirs : le mental. Les sportifs donnent souvent l'impression d'être des rocs impénétrables et incassables. Dans l'imaginaire collectif, l'exigence liée aux compétitions, à l'entraînement quotidien suppose un mental d'acier, une force morale surhumaine qui ne peut se permettre de plier à la moindre difficulté rencontrée. Ce n'est pas faux : supporter l'intensité du très haut niveau n'est pas à la portée de tous, il faut une sacrée dose d'égo, de volonté, de courage pour y prétendre. Mais les athlètes sont des femmes et des hommes comme les autres : ils doivent dépasser, surmonter des épreuves et ont tout à gagner à mieux se connaître. Devenir champion propose précisément de plonger au cur des obstacles auxquels se trouvent confrontés nos sportifs. Qu'ils soient basketteurs, gymnastes, footballeurs, tous ont au moins une fois dans leur carrière jeté l'éponge, après une défaite humiliante ou une blessure. Cédric Quignon-Fleuret, Psychologue clinicien et responsable de l'Unité de Psychologie du Sport de l'INSEP, partage la sphère intime de nos plus grandes personnalités sportives et pourvoyeurs de médailles depuis de longues années. Fort de cette expérience unique, il partage dans cet ouvrage une analyse sans détours des principaux maux ou épreuves auxquels les champions sont confrontés, depuis leur enfance jusqu'à leur consécration sur le podium. Son propos s'appuie sur des interviews et des témoignages exclusifs qui, chaque fois, servent de socle à la présentation de l'auteur. Riche et instructif, vision inédite du monde des sportifs de haut niveau, Devenir champion montre comment psychologie et performance sont les meilleures alliées d'une carrière sportive.
