The Quest of the Mecha-Soul (trilogy Novel)

LA QUETE DE L’AME MECANIQUE

Je suis un survivant; un soldat malgré moi

Jai une histoire à raconter la mienne celle dun peuple.

Je suis… j’étais… un Chevalier…

Mais cette histoire est bien plus que celle dun Chevalier de lArbre. Cest avant tout celle dun monde, dun univers dont je fais partie et que je porte en moi depuis bien longtemps…

Trop longtemps peut-être

Jaurais aimé pouvoir me présenter à vous et vous donner mon nom, comme le ferait nimporte quel soldat qui relaterait lune des plus formidables épopées jamais contées. Mais il est encore trop tôt

Et puis mon nom importe peu

Tout ce qui compte en définitive, c’est que cette histoire ait existé et que grâce à vous, elle vive à jamais dans le coeur et la mémoire des générations à venir.

Afin qu’on n’oublie jamais…

The Quest of the Mecha-Soul is one of my dearest childhood’s dreams made come true.

I was born with Star Wars (actually I was 10 in 1977 when the first film of George Lucas smashed the movie making galaxy) and I was immediately touched by the power of all that lied beneath the heroes and the starships.

Add to that the incredible Lord of the Rings trilogy, released by Peter Jackson in 2001, and you end up with a boy who’s just obsessed by the idea of creating his own universe as well.

From the very beginning, I always had in mind that a real token of success would be if my spacecrafts and characters end up some day wrapped in the kid’s menus from Mac Donalds.

Over the decades, as I grew old, the urge to create my own trilogy became greater and greater, until that moment, a couple of years ago, when I had to start writing and writing again.

First I had to fine-tune my concept and develop the universe around which I would be able to tell the epic story I had in mind. As a matter of fact, « in my mind » doesn’t quite say it. It was rather in my heart or better even, in my soul.

For starters, until The Quest of the Mecha-Soul finds suitable distribution, I’ve posted here above the introduction to the first volume. Entitled « The Thenth », it develops over some 600 pages and has undergone its final revision.

Meanwhile, I’ve already reached 460 pages in the writing of volume 2 « The Master of Arms » (Le Maître d’Armes), while the outline of volume 3 « The Eternal Tree » (L’Arbre Eternel) is already shaping up.

The Quest of the Mecha-Soul is undoubtedly my most elaborated and accomplished achievement to date. It’s written in my mother language, French. However, as soon as  it’ll be released, my next move will definitely be to make it available in English as well.
