Read full description of the books:
En mission d'exploration sur Séthi IV, le jeune Moineau dévisse d'une falaise. Très grièvement blessé, il est rapatrié sur son vaisseau-génération, l'Astron, pour y être soigné. Alors qu'il se remet lentement de ses blessures à l'infirmerie, on tente sans succès de l'empoisonner. Guéri, mais amnésique, Moineau ne peut que redécouvrir le monde où il est né : un vaisseau délabré, hanté par un équipage indifférent, voire hostile. Le capitaine de l'Astron est prêt à répondre aux questions de Moineau. Mais cet immortel semble avoir perdu la raison : il veut traverser la Nuit, une partie de la galaxie totalement dénuée d'étoiles, pour aller chercher des signes de vie extraterrestre de l'autre côté. Un voyage de cent générations, qui semble bien impossible pour un vaisseau aussi abîmé que l'Astron.
Fresque spatiale écrite comme un thriller, Destination ténèbres, souvent comparé à Moby Dick, s'est imposé dès sa parution, en 1991, comme un classique de la science-fiction américaine.
