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.

Andy Weir
Novela brillante, delirio ingenioso, con una mecánica del suspense que sorprenderá al lector una y otra vez.

Una experiencia literaria excepcional en gravedad cero.

«La mejor novela de ciencia ficción en años.»
Wall Street Journal

Seis días atrás el astronauta Mark Watney se convirtió en uno de los primeros hombres en caminar por la superficie de Marte. Ahora está seguro de que será el primer hombre en morir allí. La tripulación de la nave en que viajaba se ve obligada a evacuar el planeta a causa de una tormenta de polvo, dejando atrás a Mark tras darlo por muerto. Pero él está vivo, y atrapado a millones de kilómetros de cualquier ser humano, sin posibilidad de enviar señales a la Tierra.

De todos modos, si lograra establecer conexión, moriría mucho antes de que el rescate llegara. Sinembargo, Mark no se da por vencido; armado con su ingenio, sus habilidades y sus conocimientos sobre botánica, se enfrentará a obstáculos aparentemente insuperables. Por suerte, el sentido del humor resultará ser su mayor fuente de fuerza.

Obstinado en seguir con vida, incubará un plan absolutamente demencial para ponerse en contacto con la NASA.

Reseñas:
«Una de las mejores novelas que he leído en mucho tiempo. Parece tan real que casi podría ser no-ficción y, sin embargo, tiene la unidad narrativa y la potencia de un cohete. Un Apollo 13 multiplicado por cien.»
Douglas Preston, #1 del New York Times

«¡No lo podía dejar! Tiene la rara combinación de ser una buena y original historia y con unos personajes interesantes con una fascinante precisión técnica. Una suma de MacGyver y La isla misteriosa de Verne.»
Chris Hadfield, astronauta, comandante de la Estación Espacial Internacional y autor de la Guía de un astronauta para vivir en la Tierra.

«El mejor libro que he leído en mucho tiempo. Inteligente, divertida e intensa.»
Hugh Howey, autor de Espejismo

«Weir ha creado un thriller de supervivencia que no da tregua, entretenido y creativo, un MacGyver atrapado en Marte que se lee, se siente y se vive de manera tan real y terrible como la verdadera historia de la Apollo 13.»
Ernest Cline, autor de Ready Player One

«El marciano se perfila como el nuevo Robinson Crusoe de Defoe, pero escrito por alguien aún más brillante.»
Larry Niven, ganador de varios premios Hugo y Nebula.

«Fuerte y valiente. Un Robinson Crusoe en Marte en el siglo XXI.»
Steve Berry

Jason M. Hough
Published in rapid succession, Jason M. Hough’s first three novels, The Darwin Elevator, The Exodus Towers, and The Plague Forge, earned mountains of praise and comparisons to such authors as James S. A. Corey and John Scalzi. Now Hough returns with a riveting near-future spy thriller that combines the adrenaline of a high-octane James Bond adventure with mind-blowing sci-fi speculations worthy of Christopher Nolan’s Inception.

Technologically enhanced superspy Peter Caswell has been dispatched on a top-secret assignment unlike any he’s ever faced. A spaceship that vanished years ago has been found, along with the bodies of its murdered crew—save one. Peter’s mission is to find the missing crew member, who fled through what appears to be a tear in the fabric of space. Beyond this mysterious doorway lies an even more confounding reality: a world that seems to be Earth’s twin.

Peter discovers that this mirrored world is indeed different from his home, and far more dangerous. Cut off from all support, and with only days to complete his operation, Peter must track his quarry alone on an alien world. But he’s unprepared for what awaits on the planet’s surface, where his skills will be put to the ultimate test—and everything he knows about the universe will be challenged in ways he never could have imagined.

Includes the complete bonus novella The Dire Earth, a prequel to the bestselling sci-fi adventure The Darwin Elevator.

Book 1
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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.

The hunt is on for the mysterious keys left by the alien Builders. While Skyler’s team of immune scavengers scatters around the disease-ravaged globe in search of the artifacts, Skyler himself finds much more than he expected in the African desert, where he stumbles upon surprising Builder relics—and thousands of bloodthirsty subhumans. From the slums and fortresses of Darwin to the jungles of Brazil and beyond, Skyler and company are in for a wild ride, jam-packed with daunting challenges, run-and-gun adventure, and unexpected betrayals—all in a race against time to finally answer the great questions that have plagued humanity for decades: Who are the Builders, and what do they want with Earth?

The sudden appearance of a second space elevator in Brazil only deepens the mystery about the aliens who provided it: the Builders. Scavenger crew captain Skyler Luiken and brilliant scientist Dr. Tania Sharma have formed a colony around the new Elevator’s base, utilizing mobile towers to protect humans from the Builders’ plague. But they are soon under attack from a roving band of plague-immune soldiers. Cut off from the colony, Skyler must wage a one-man war against the new threat as well as murderous subhumans and thugs from Darwin—all while trying to solve the puzzle of the Builders’ master plan . . . before it’s too late for the last vestiges of humanity.
