Lucy Wolverene, volume 1. The crystals of Orleans, text by Sandra Dussault, Magellan collection, Quebec America editions

At 17, Lucy Wolverène – Wolverene, it’s an old name for the American Wolverine – prides herself on being one of the best thieves in Quebec City. Taken from her Cree family when she was just a child, the teenager learned to play rough, even with her team of young bandits. When Lucy learns of the upcoming visit of a Japanese prince (a true fact: Prince Fushimi went to Quebec in June 1907), she takes risks to make the coup of the century. Historical novel spiced with fantasy (Île d’Orléans is home to a frightful and fictitious prison in this series), Lucy Wolverène will appeal to adventure seekers who are not too sentimental.
