• L’ora segreta• Dentro le tenebre• I cacciatori della notteAllo scoccare della mezzanotte, dalle pieghe del tempo nasce un’altra ora, in cui il mondo si congela, le normali leggi fisiche vengono sospese, e creature letali tornano da un passato antichissimo, di nuovo in caccia, di nuovo affamate. Solo chi è nato a mezzanotte in punto, come Jessica e i suoi amici, può muoversi nell’ora segreta. Per quei sessanta minuti, ogni giorno, il mondo si colora di una spettrale luce blu e tutti gli esseri umani si paralizzano, tranne loro. E i difetti per cui a scuola gli altri studenti li prendono in giro si trasformano in incredibili doni: Rex acquista una vista speciale, Melissa legge nel pensiero, Dess forgia armi mortali, e Jonathan sa volare. Ma anche Jessica ha un dono. E proprio per questo le creature della mezzanotte cercano così disperatamente di ucciderla. I diari della mezzanotte è una saga da leggere tutta d’un fiato, quando calano le ombre della notte. Un mondo fantastico che colora di blu il grigio della vita quotidiana, un universo magico in cui gli incubi possono diventare realtà.Un successo da oltre 100.000 copie!L’ora segreta, Dentro le tenebre e I cacciatori della notte per la prima volta raccolti in un unico volume!«Una saga fantasy contemporanea, assolutamente innovativa.»Publishers Weekly«Emozionante.

From the acclaimed author of Fine Prey, Polymorph, and Evolution's Darling (Philip K. Dick Award special citation and a New York Times Notable Book) comes a sweeping epic, The Risen Empire, Scott Westerfeld's dazzling hardcover debut. The undead Emperor has ruled his mighty interstellar empire of eighty human worlds for sixteen hundred years. Because he can grant a form of eternal life, creating an elite known as the Risen, his power has been absolute. He and his sister, the Child Empress, who is eternally a little girl, are worshiped as living gods. No one can touch them. Not until the Rix, machine-augmented humans who worship very different gods: AI compound minds of planetary extent. The Rix are cool, relentless fanatics, and their only goal is to propagate such AIs throughout the galaxy. They seek to end, by any means necessary, the Emperor's prolonged tyranny of one and supplant it with an eternal cybernetic dynasty of their own. They begin by taking the Child Empress hostage. Captain Laurent Zai of the Imperial Frigate Lynx is tasked with her rescue. Separated by light-years, bound by an unlikely love, Zai and pacifist senator Nara Oxham must each in their own way, face the challenge of the Rix, and they each will hold the fate of the empire in their hands. The Risen Empire is the first great space opera of the twenty-first century. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Saleem Sinai is born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, the very moment of India’s independence. Greeted by fireworks displays, cheering crowds, and Prime Minister Nehru himself, Saleem grows up to learn the ominous consequences of this coincidence. His every act is mirrored and magnified in events that sway the course of national affairs; his health and well-being are inextricably bound to those of his nation; his life is inseparable, at times indistinguishable, from the history of his country. Perhaps most remarkable are the telepathic powers linking him with India’s 1,000 other “midnight’s children,” all born in that initial hour and endowed with magical gifts. This novel is at once a fascinating family saga and an astonishing evocation of a vast land and its people–a brilliant incarnation of the universal human comedy. Midnight’s Children stands apart as both an epochal work of fiction and a brilliant performance by one of the great literary voices of our time. From the Trade Paperback edition.
