 The world is a darker place than what we could perceive from our well-lit cities, and Lucas knows this better than anybody else. This sombre character has travelled to all corners of the world hunting the results of the humanity's bad actions: the demons. However, suddenly, his life will take an unexpected turn when media announces that in Jerusalem an Arabic boy is considered the new Messiah. Will it be true that he is the God's second son, who has come to redeem again our sins? For a long time, the human being has looked up to the sky and has asked God to save us and to forgive us for our human sins. That divine mercy has been always directly related with the image of Jesus Christ, but is the world ready for the arrival of a new saviour? Are the western religions, authentic trade companies of faith, ready? Or maybe they fear that the new Messiah expels again the merchants from the temple?

The hunter will be involved in a dangerous battle in which his enemies will not be just the inhabitants of the Avern. He will also have to defend himself against the fanatic components of an ancient Christian organisation of warriors, who vowed to fight against the Lucifer's army. However, the current corruption in the Vatican curia will turn them into even more dangerous enemies than the angels of night, to which he is used to fight. Now, only God will be able to recognise his own people.

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.

Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.

Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.

The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) from the author of The Da Vinci Code.
 
Bilbao, Spain
 
Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.
     As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.
     Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself . . . and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery . . . and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.
 
Origin is stunningly inventive—Dan Brown's most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.
The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon.

Jasmine Bashara never signed up to be a hero. She just wanted to get rich.
 
Not crazy, eccentric-billionaire rich, like many of the visitors to her hometown of Artemis, humanity’s first and only lunar colony. Just rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment and eat something better than flavored algae. Rich enough to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time.
 
So when a chance at a huge score finally comes her way, Jazz can’t say no. Sure, it requires her to graduate from small-time smuggler to full-on criminal mastermind. And it calls for a particular combination of cunning, technical skills, and large explosions—not to mention sheer brazen swagger. But Jazz has never run into a challenge her intellect can’t handle, and she figures she’s got the ‘swagger’ part down.
 
The trouble is, engineering the perfect crime is just the start of Jazz’s problems. Because her little heist is about to land her in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
 
Trapped between competing forces, pursued by a killer and the law alike, even Jazz has to admit she’s in way over her head. She’ll have to hatch a truly spectacular scheme to have a chance at staying alive and saving her city.
 
Jazz is no hero, but she is a very good criminal.
 
That’ll have to do.
 
Propelled by its heroine’s wisecracking voice, set in a city that’s at once stunningly imagined and intimately familiar, and brimming over with clever problem-solving and heist-y fun, Artemis is another irresistible brew of science, suspense, and humor from #1 bestselling author Andy Weir.
 El mundo es un lugar mucho más oscuro de lo que nosotros podemos percibir desde nuestras bien iluminadas ciudades, y eso Lucas lo sabe mejor que nadie. Este sombrío personaje ha viajado por todos los rincones de la tierra dando caza al resultado de las malas obras de la humanidad, los demonios. Pero de pronto, su vida dará un giro inesperado cuando los medios de comunicación anuncien que, en Jerusalén, un joven de origen árabe es considerado el nuevo mesías. ¿Será cierto que es el segundo hijo de Dios, que ha venido a redimir de nuevo nuestros pecados? Desde antiguo, el ser humano ha mirado al cielo y ha pedido a Dios que nos salve y perdone los pecados de la humanidad. Esa misericordia divina siempre se ha relacionando directamente con la imagen de Jesucristo; pero, ¿está el mundo preparado para que un nuevo salvador venga a nosotros?, ¿lo están las religiones occidentales, autenticas empresas comerciantes de fe?, ¿o tal vez se asustarían de que el nuevo mesías expulse de nuevo a los mercaderes del templo?
El cazador se verá envuelto en una peligrosa batalla en la que sus enemigos no solo serán los habitantes del averno. También tendrá que defenderse de los fanáticos componentes de una antigua organización cristiana de guerreros, que juraron luchar contra las huestes de Lucifer. Sin embargo, la actual corrupción en la curia Vaticana los convertirá en unos enemigos mucho más peligrosos que los ángeles de la noche, con los que está habituado a luchar. Ahora solo Dios será capaz de reconocer a los suyos.
 Tras el incidente de Stirling, el mundo es consciente de que existe una realidad aterrado­ra que no comprende y que los gobiernos más importantes del planeta han descubierto recientemente con horror. Para responder a esta nueva amenaza, se ha creado una nueva unidad de combate capaz de responder a cualquier amenaza que no se pueda controlar por los medios habituales. El misterioso organizador de este nuevo ejército insiste en re­clutar a Lucas, que vuelve al servicio de manera oficial tras varios años desde que aban­donó la orden de cazadores de demonios. Parece que con esta rcgularización será mucho más fácil purgar a los vastagos del infierno. Sin embargo, durante la primera misión ocurrirá algo que nadie espera y que alterará el curso de la historia de la humanidad. I.a trama se solapa con la historia de Roberto de Lyon, un joven caballero de la pri­mera cruzada que será testigo de cómo la brecha entre el mundo de los humanos y el in­fierno se abre, poblando la Ciudad Santa de sombras aterradoras, monstruos y brutales asesinatos. Unos dicen que la cruzada ha sido maldecida, otros que el diablo campa a sus anchas por las calles de Jerusalén; pero muy pocos saben que han sido los propios soldados de Cristo los que han provocado un mal que amenaza con engullir por comple­to a la raza humana. Ahora, ambas épocas se entremezclarán formando un todo en el que héroes, villanos y simples humanos tendrán que sobrevivir y descubrir la verdad sobre Dios y el Diablo.
