Book 2

13

Milo is a robot, no taller than a child, designed to look like a toy soldier. His job had always been to welcome visitors to the Robot World Party amusement park… but that was before the world went crazy and the robots rose up to exterminate mankind from the face of the Earth. Years later, Robot World Party had been transformed into a terrifying place, plagued by monstrous androids that wanted nothing more than to destroy anything that crossed paths with them. And just when Milo thought that he would never see a human again, a child’s laughter forces him out of hiding and pushes him to become a hero, accompanied as always by Pinny, his loyal friend, a robot penguin who is as simple as he is loveable. A short, self-contained story; a tale that serves to provide a better understanding of the world and characters of Hearts of Iron.

 What if the fate of two worlds were in the hands of one person: you?

The childhood secret of a troubled teen warrior is used against her by her enemies. It turns out what Neiko imagined is real, and she becomes trapped in the same world she imagined by an otherworldly evil that is worse than the devil. Getting home is the least of her problems.

The Indians and the Crackedskulls are locked in the turmoil of a war that has raged for centuries, and it is presently in a stalemate. Her enemies, Raven and Bloodhawk, have come up with a scheme to take her down, but in doing so they inadvertently open the door to another universe and to an otherwordly evil. Neiko later finds out that a land she thought she had only imagined is actually real and the dark being is not a figment of her childhood imagination–he is terrifyingly real and she faces him for the first time. To make matters worse, it is now in her world and he has evil plans especially for her.

 

After several standoffs with the malevolent Ramses the Dark Pharaoh in Hawote, she is trapped in Qari by his strange and powerful magic. Trapped in another universe in a place that is not exactly the way she imagined it, and she must somehow find a way to teleport home. That is easier said than done; the odds are overwhelmingly against her and her scorpion-cobra companion as they must travel to find the answer and help but at the same time avoid Ramses’ allies, traps, and tricks. Can she come back home and turn the tables on her enemies?

Breyden is at a major crossroads in his life - return to the life he had known and be a part of the corrupt, evil People’s Government or become a high-priority target of that establishment as an outlaw, hunted by it and his own father.

With the aid of some new friends, Breyden sets out to build his own army to fight the system. His efforts to gain the necessary people and equipment to start his revolution puts him at odds with an underground government also set on maintaining their control of people who run from the dominant authority.

The deeper he digs, the more Breyden discovers just how far the People’s Government’s reach extends and to what lengths they and his father will go to take him down. His efforts to strike out at his enemies and bring freedom to earth and the universe will leave thousands of lives at risk.

The #1 New York Times bestseller!

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series, the Mistborn trilogy, and the Stormlight Archive comes the second book in an epic series about a girl with a secret in a dangerous world at war for humanity's future.

All her life, Spensa has dreamed of becoming a pilot. Of proving she's a hero like her father. She made it to the sky, but the truths she learned about her father were crushing. The rumors of his cowardice are true--he deserted his flight during battle against the Krell. Worse, though, he turned against his team and attacked them.

Spensa is sure there's more to the story. And she's sure that whatever happened to her father in his starship could happen to her. When she made it outside the protective shell of her planet, she heard the stars--and it was terrifying. Everything Spensa has been taught about her world is a lie.

But Spensa also discovered a few other things about herself--and she'll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to.

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

From Brandon Sanderson, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series, Words of Radiance, and the internationally bestselling Mistborn series, comes the first book in an epic new series about a girl who dreams of becoming a pilot in a dangerous world at war for humanity's future.

Spensa's world has been under attack for decades. Now pilots are the heroes of what's left of the human race, and becoming one has always been Spensa's dream. Since she was a little girl, she has imagined soaring skyward and proving her bravery. But her fate is intertwined with her father's--a pilot himself who was killed years ago when he abruptly deserted his team, leaving Spensa's chances of attending flight school at slim to none.

No one will let Spensa forget what her father did, yet fate works in mysterious ways. Flight school might be a long shot, but she is determined to fly. And an accidental discovery in a long-forgotten cavern might just provide her with a way to claim the stars.
