Queens, New York. Aisling Kopp believes the unthinkable: that Endgame can be stopped. But before she can act on her own, she is approached by the CIA. And they have their own ideas about how Endgame should be Played.

Kingdom of Aksum, Ethiopia. Hilal ibn Isa al-Salt narrowly survived an attack that leaves him horribly disfigured. But the Aksumites have a secret that is unique to their line. A secret that could help redeem all of humanity.

London, England. Sarah Alopay has found the first key. But getting Earth Key has come at a great cost to Sarah. And the only thing that keeps the demons at bay is Playing. Playing to win.

With only two keys left to claim, the remaining Players will stop at nothing to find Sky Key—wherever it is, whatever it is—as the world begins to crumble.

Jay Dobyns
Here, from Jay Dobyns, the first federal agent to infiltrate the inner circle of the outlaw Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, is the inside story of the twenty-one-month operation that almost cost him his family, his sanity, and his life.

Getting shot in the chest as a rookie agent, bartering for machine guns, throttling down the highway at 100 mph, and responding to a full-scale, bloody riot between the Hells Angels and their rivals, the Mongols--these are just a few of the high-adrenaline experiences Dobyns recounts in this action-packed, hard-to-imagine-but-true story.

Dobyns leaves no stone of his harrowing journey unturned. At runs and clubhouses, between rides and riots, Dobyns befriends bad-ass bikers, meth-fueled “old ladies,” gun fetishists, psycho-killer ex-cons, and even some of the “Filthy Few”--the elite of the Hells Angels who’ve committed extreme violence on behalf of their club. Eventually, at parties staged behind heavily armed security, he meets legendary club members such as Chuck Zito, Johnny Angel, and the godfather of all bikers, Ralph “Sonny” Barger. To blend in with them, he gets full-arm ink; to win their respect, he vows to prove himself a stone-cold killer.

Hardest of all is leading a double life, which has him torn between his devotion to his wife and children, and his pledge to become the first federal agent ever to be “fully patched” into the Angels’ near-impregnable ranks. His act is so convincing that he comes within a hairsbreadth of losing himself. Eventually, he realizes that just as he’s been infiltrating the Hells Angels, they’ ve been infiltrating him. And just as they’re not all bad, he’s not all good.

Reminiscent of Donnie Brasco’s uncovering of the true Mafia, this is an eye-opening portrait of the world of bikers--the most in-depth since Hunter Thompson’s seminal work--one that fully describes the seductive lure criminal camaraderie has for men who would otherwise be powerless outsiders. Here is all the nihilism, hate, and intimidation, but also the freedom--and, yes, brotherhood--of the only truly American form of organized crime.
Book 7
The seventh and final book in the #1 New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series brings the Garde’s story to a breathtaking conclusion.

The Garde didn’t start this war, but they’ll do whatever it takes to end it once and for all. . . .

The Mogadorians have invaded Earth and the Garde are all that stand in the way, but they’ll need an army of their own to win this fight. They’ve teamed up with the US military, but it might not be enough. The Garde need reinforcements, and they’ve found them in the most unexpected place. Teenagers from across the globe, like John Smith’s best friend, Sam, have developed abilities. So John and the others must get to them before the Mogs, because if they don’t their enemies will use these gifted teens for their own sinister plan.

But after all that has been taken from John—his home, his family, his friends, and the person he loves most—he might not want to put any more lives in danger. He’s got nothing left to lose, and he’s just discovered he has an incredible new Legacy. Now he can turn himself into the ultimate weapon. So will he risk his life to save the world, or will he realize that power in numbers will save us all?

Michael Bay, director of Transformers, raved: “Number Four is a hero for this generation.” This epic young adult series is perfect for fans of action-packed science fiction like The Fifth Wave series by Rick Yancey, The Maze Runner series by James Dashner, and Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game.

Don’t miss the first book in the brand-new I Am Number Four spin-off series: Generation One.

Mänsklighetens framtid ligger i deras händer



Om 94 dagar utplånas alla utom den vinnande Spelaren och dennes ätt. Vem orkar kämpa och vem ger upp? Kan mänskligheten räddas? Endgame: Spelet är andra delen i James Freys banbrytande trilogi i samarbete med Google, där du genom att lösa ledtrådar i texten tävlar om chansen att vinna en äkta guldskatt.

Spelet är i full gång! Efter att Jordnyckeln har hittats är Spelarnas uppgift nu att finna den andra nyckeln, Himmelsnyckeln. De Spelare från de tolv urtida ätterna som överlevt så här långt hinner knappt hämta sig förrän de är mitt inne i jakten. De måste använda all sin list och all sin styrka för att hålla sig vid liv och för att förstå hur de ska Spela vidare. Men snart börjar de undra vad det är som Skaparna har satt igång, och vad dessa uråldriga varelser egentligen är ute efter. Dessutom står det också klart för Spelarna att de inte bara måste slåss mot varandra ...
Spelarna ska Spela för sin ätts överlevnad, men allianser har bildats – mot alla regler. Frågan är bara om det går att lita på sina allierade. Och om det går att lita på Skaparna ... Vilka är de goda och vilka är de onda i det ödesdigra Spelet? Frågorna hopar sig och snart börjar den största frågan av alla att utkristallisera sig: Går Spelet att stoppa?

Kampen om mänsklighetens framtid tar vid där den slutade i första boken, Endgame: Kallelsen. En storfilm är planerad och under 2015 lanserar även Google Niantic Labs ett spel: Endgame Proving Grounds. Läs mer på www.endgame.nu.

James Frey
Perhaps the most unconventional and literally breathtaking father-son story you'll ever read, My Friend Leonard pulls you immediately and deeply into a relationship as unusual as it is inspiring.

The father figure is Leonard, the high-living, recovering coke addict "West Coast Director of a large Italian-American finance firm" (read: mobster) who helped to keep James Frey clean in A Million Little Pieces. The son is, of course, James, damaged perhaps beyond repair by years of crack and alcohol addiction-and by more than a few cruel tricks of fate.

James embarks on his post-rehab existence in Chicago emotionally devastated, broke, and afraid to get close to other people. But then Leonard comes back into his life, and everything changes. Leonard offers his "son" lucrative—if illegal and slightly dangerous—employment. He teaches James to enjoy life, sober, for the first time. He instructs him in the art of "living boldly," pushes him to pursue his passion for writing, and provides a watchful and supportive veil of protection under which James can get his life together. Both Leonard's and James's careers flourish…but then Leonard vanishes. When the reasons behind his mysterious absence are revealed, the book opens up in unexpected emotional ways.

My Friend Leonard showcases a brilliant and energetic young writer rising to important new challenges—displaying surprising warmth, humor, and maturity—without losing his intensity. This book proves that one of the most provocative literary voices of his generation is also one of the most emphatically human.

Tolv ungdomar från tolv uråldriga släkten är kallade till slutstriden. Den släkt som vinner blir ensam kvar på jorden. Alla andra människor dör.



De flesta civilisationer har någon berättelse som handlar om att gudar eller varelser som besitter större krafter och kunskaper än människorna kommit ner till jorden från himlen. Nu är varelserna tillbaka för att kräva in det som människorna lovade dem.
Under tusentals år har familjer övat varje generation i hur de ska överleva och döda om de blir kallade som spelare i slutstriden. De som är mellan 13 år och 19 år och 364 dagar är ständigt beredda. Men ingen har blivit kallad. Förrän nu. Tolv meteoriter slår ner på jorden och tolv familjer skickar iväg ett barn till Xi'an i Kina där spelet börjar.
Sarah Alopay ska just hålla tal för avgångsklasserna i highschool. Hon tänker att det är 377,43625 dagar kvar till hennes 20-årsdag, då hon inte längre kan bli kallad till slutstriden. Då det riktiga livet kan börja.
Jago Tlaloc tänker att några av de andra spelarna kommer att vara starkare eller smartare än vad han är. Några kommer kanske till och med vara fulare. Men han vet att han kan döda dem alla.
Chiyoko Takeda är stum, liten och späd som en tolvåring trots att hon är nästan arton. Det tänker hon använda till sin fördel i spelet på samma sätt som den som är smart använder sin intelligens eller den hjärtlöse använder mord.
An Liu är en lysande hacker och sprängämnesexpert. Han tänker att det bästa är om så få deltagare som möjligt över huvud taget kommer fram till mötesplatsen i Xi'an.
Ingen av dem eller de andra åtta spelarna har superkrafter, men alla är noga förberedda.
Det är dags för slutstriden om vem som ska överleva kampen om vår jord - spelet kan börja.

Samtidigt som första boken i serien ges ut, lanserar Googles Niantic Labs ett internationellt realityspel för läsare över hela världen. Målet är att hitta nyckeln till en glaskista full med guld. God jakt!
