• 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.

The Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ genetically fabricated animals as their weaponry. Their Leviathan is a whale airship, and the most masterful beast in the British fleet. In this striking futuristic rendition of an alternate past where machines are pitted against genetically modified beasts, Aleksandar Ferdinand, a Clanker, and Deryn Sharp, a Darwinist, are on opposite sides in the First World War. But their paths cross in the most unexpected way, and together they embark on an around-the-world adventure….One that will change both their lives forever.

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.

Lily Proctor has come a long way from the weak, sickly girl she used to be. She has gained power as a witch and a leader, found her way home, chosen to face battle again, and (after losing her first love and being betrayed by her new love) she has learned more about loss and grief than she ever wanted to know. Thrust once again into a society different from anything they have ever seen, Lily and her coven are determined to find answers—to find a new path to victory, a way to defeat the monstrous Woven without resorting to nuclear weapons or becoming a tyrannical mass murderer like her alternate self, Lillian. But sometimes winning requires sacrifices . . . and when the only clear path to victory lies at Lillian's side, what price will Lily be willing to pay? Internationally bestselling author Josephine Angelini takes us on another emotionally wrenching thrill ride in the stunning conclusion to her Worldwalker Trilogy.
