La nueva serie de novelas basada en el universo Mass Effect.

El nuevo juego de la saga llevará la historia de Mass Effect en una dirección totalmente nueva: una zona del espacio inexplorada en la que los protagonistas se enfrentarán a un nuevo enemigo mortal.

La nueva saga de novelas formará parte del arco argumental canónico del mundo de Mass Effect e incluirá una precuela y varias secuelas del nuevo juego. Todas las historias, desarrolladas en estrecha colaboración con el equipo del juego en Bioware, estarán ambientadas en la acción del nuevo juego y revelarán acontecimientos que se mantienen en secreto durante el mismo.

Tras un sueño de cientos de años, los colonos de la galaxia Andrómeda descubrirán que todas sus esperanzas de encontrar un nuevo hogar han desaparecido. La misión está en peligro antes incluso de llegar a la Nexus, la enorme estación espacial desde la que los colonos explorarán su nuevo hogar. La jefe de seguridad Sloane Kelly deberá enfrentarse a una galaxia inexplorada y a amenazas que escapan a su comprensión para salvarla. Si falla, toda la Iniciativa Andrómeda podría desaparecer.

Part one of a thrilling action-adventure sci-fi duology featuring indomitable characters, incredible worlds, and plenty of rip-roaring action and thrills!

Rescue operation—or suicide mission?

Skyler Luiken and his ragtag crew of scavengers, scientists, and brawlers have a new mission: a long journey to a distant planet where a race of benevolent aliens are held captive behind a cloud of destructive ships known as the Swarm Blockade. No human ships have ever made it past this impenetrable wall, and Skyler knows not what to anticipate when they reach their destination.

Safe to say that the last thing he expects to find there is a second human ship led by the tough-as-nails captain, Gloria Tsandi. These two crews—and their respective captains—initially clash, but they will have to learn to work together when their mutual foe closes in around them and begins the outright destruction of their vessels—along with any hope of a return to Earth.

Jason M. Hough’s pulse-pounding debut combines the drama, swagger, and vivid characters of Joss Whedon’s Firefly with the talent of sci-fi author John Scalzi.
In the mid-23rd century, Darwin, Australia, stands as the last human city on Earth. The world has succumbed to an alien plague, with most of the population transformed into mindless, savage creatures. The planet’s refugees flock to Darwin, where a space elevator—created by the architects of this apocalypse, the Builders—emits a plague-suppressing aura.
Skyler Luiken has a rare immunity to the plague. Backed by an international crew of fellow “immunes,” he leads missions into the dangerous wasteland beyond the aura’s edge to find the resources Darwin needs to stave off collapse. But when the Elevator starts to malfunction, Skyler is tapped—along with the brilliant scientist, Dr. Tania Sharma—to solve the mystery of the failing alien technology and save the ragged remnants of humanity.
