Description

The final volume of Shi: "Two women against an empire."

From the Publisher:

In this final volume, Kita and Jay plot their ultimate revenge against the "Glorious Eries," the secret cabal of Royalists that's seeking to take back the newly independent American colonies with the covert help of Queen Victoria herself. Meanwhile, the ruthless police commissioner Kurb is on their trail and finds unexpected and unwitting help from the street urchin Pickles. Jay's family continues to come apart but her estranged mother makes one last attempt to reach out to her. Everything is set in motion now: can anyone change the course of events, or is it too late?

Caught by the police and the horrible Kurb, Jay and Kita are trapped. They manage to escape at the last minute thanks to Sensei's help, but the price is terrible.

A price on their heads, they ally themselves with the Dead Ends, the gang of street urchins. Together, they want to take revenge on this British Empire which crushes them without pity. And what better to achieve their ends than to profit from the decisions of Queen Victoria. Not appreciating that the provinces of North America claim their independence, the Queen has ordered the construction of a naval fleet to go and declare war on America and recover what belongs to her. An attack is preparing for the inauguration day ...

resume:

Rattrapées par la police et l'horrible Kurb, Jay et Kita sont prises au piège. Elles parviennent à s'enfuir in extremis grâce à l'aide de Senseï, mais le prix à payer est terrible.

Leurs têtes mises à prix, elles s'allient au Dead Ends, le gang de gamins des rues de Husband et Sainte Marie-des-Caniveaux. Ensemble, ils veulent se venger de cet Empire britannique qui les écrase sans vergogne. Et rien de mieux pour parvenir à leurs fins que de profiter des décisions de la Reine Victoria. N'appréciant nullement que les provinces d'Amérique du Nord revendiquent leur indépendance, la Reine a ordonné la construction d'une flotte navale pour aller déclarer la guerre à l'Amérique et récupérer ce qui lui appartient. Un attentat se prépare pour le jour de l'inauguration...

Il arrive que le démon verse des larmes, mais ne vous méprenez pas, il s'en nourrira pour devenir plus fort et déversera sa haine...
