From New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman comes an electrifying new series about a brother and sister who must harness their powers and find their place in a sharply divided world.

Everyone in Vallen knows that ice wolves and scorch dragons are sworn enemies who live deeply separate lives.

So when twelve-year-old orphan Anders takes one elemental form and his twin sister, Rayna, takes another, he wonders whether they are even related. Still, whether or not they’re family, Rayna is Anders’s only true friend. She’s nothing like the brutal, cruel dragons who claimed her as one of their own and stole her away.

In order to rescue her, Anders must enlist at the foreboding Ulfar Academy, a school for young wolves that values loyalty to the pack above all else. But for Anders, loyalty is more complicated than obedience, and friendship is the most powerful shapeshifting force of all.

For fans of Marie Lu comes the first book in an epic series that bends the sci-fi genre into a new dimension.
 
 “A truly beautiful novel that redefines the form." —Victoria Aveyard, bestselling author of Red Queen

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded.
      The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than a speck at the edge of the universe. Now with enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to evacuate with a hostile warship in hot pursuit.
     But their problems are just getting started. A plague has broken out and is mutating with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a web of data to find the truth, it’s clear the only person who can help her is the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.
      Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, maps, files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

From the Hardcover edition.
Al doilea volum al Trilogiei Constelații

Fărâme de șoapte aduce în scenă o pereche de îndrăgostiți aflați în taberele adverse ale unui război sângeros.


Jubilee Chase și Flynn Cormac n-ar fi trebuit să se întâlnească niciodată.


Lee este căpitan și face parte din forțele trimise pe Avon să-i supună pe coloniștii rebeli ai acestei planete terraformate.


Flynn conduce revolta împotriva corporațiilor care nu și-au respectat promisiunea de a transforma planetele ospitaliere în unele pe care se poate trăi.


Încercând cu disperare să-și asigure un avantaj cât de mic într-un război nemilos, Flynn face singurul lucru care pare să aibă sens atunci când el și Lee își încrucișează cărările: se întoarce la bază, luând-o prizonieră.


Dar în timp ce tovarașii lui se pregătesc s-o execute pe această fată dură, cu nervi de oțel, Flynn face o altă alegere, care îl va schimba pentru totdeauna.


Lumea fantastică pe care o imaginează autoarele, talentul lor de a îmbina teme originale și familiare, de a susține două voci într-o poveste presărată cu romantism și tensiune – toate promit, în a treia parte a trilogiei, o altă lume, o altă aventură și, dacă avem noroc, un alt cuplu de îndrăgostiți. – Booklist


Acest science-fiction accesibil ne oferă conflicte autentice, conspirații de tot felul și o analiză surprinzătoare a noțiunii de vină. – Kirkus Reviews


Nici nu-mi amintesc cum am ajuns la mine. Dar brusc mă pomenesc în camera mea, amețită de gânduri, cu pielea înfiorată. Mă pregătesc de culcare cu destulă ușurință, având în sânge acest ritual după atâția ani în care m-am simțit extrem de obosită la sfârșitul unei zile pentru a mai face și altceva.


Nu trebuie să mă mai gândesc, nu trebuie să mai rămân în această stare teribilă în care simt cum adrenalina îmi pompează prin vene. Nu trebuie să mai rememorez cele întâmplate cu Flynn.


Nu trebuie să mă îndrăgostesc de un băiat care reprezintă toate lucrurile împotriva cărora am luptat de când aveam opt ani.


Dar pentru că nu mă pot opri să fac toate astea, măcar pot să nu-l mai ating vreodată.
