• 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.

Tally lives in a world where your sixteenth birthday brings aesthetic perfection: an operation which erases all your flaws, transforming you from an 'Ugly' into a 'Pretty'. She is on the eve of this important event, and cannot wait for her life to change. As well as guaranteeing supermodel looks, life as a Pretty seems to revolve around having a good time. But then she meets Shay, who is also fifteen - but with a very different outlook on life. Shay isn't sure she wants to be Pretty and plans to escape to a community in the forest - the Rusty Ruins - where Uglies go to escape ' turning'. Tally won't be persuaded to join her, as this would involve sacrificing everything she's ever wanted for a lot of uncertainty. When she is taken in for questioning on her birthday, however, Tally gets sent to the Ruins anyway - against her will. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she could ever imagine: find her friend Shay and turn her in, or never turn Pretty at all. What she discovers in the Ruins reveals that there is nothing 'pretty' about the transformations... And the choice Tally makes will change her world forever. ‘The longing for fairy-tale beauty has never looked so sinister’ - Amanda Craig, The Times ‘Fast paced, exciting and thought-provoking.’ The Bookseller's Choice ‘With a beginning and ending that pack hefty punches, this introduction to a dystopic future promises an exciting series.’ Kirkus *starred review* ‘Superb sci-fi.’ Amanda Craig, The Times Supplement ‘Westerfeld introduces thought-provoking issues’ Publishers Weekly ‘Naughty children, from Max in Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, to Tally in Scott Westerfeld's Uglies trilogy, have the imagination and energy to go beyond convention.’ The Times ‘This exciting story makes you realise how important it is not to judge people by appearances.’ Newcastle Upon Tyne Journal ‘This book is a real thrill-ride and the world utterly convincing.’ Trashionista.com ‘Vivid, relevant and exhilarating dystopia which somehow manages to be thought-provoking and wicked good fun at the same time. It’s official: I'm an Uglies fangirl.’ I was a teenage book geek (Blog), 'Fun, and the many by-the-skin-of-your-teeth escapes and hoverboard chases, plus the non-stop action plotting were enough to catch my attention and have me eagerly wanting more.’ The Book Smugglers

X-Men meets Heroes when New York Times bestselling author Scott Westerfeld teams up with award-winning authors Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti to create a sizzling new series filled with “cinematic nonstop action,” (Booklist) romance, and adventure. Don’t call them heroes. But these six California teens have powers that set them apart. Take Ethan, a.k.a. Scam. He’s got a voice inside him that’ll say whatever you want to hear, whether it’s true or not. Which is handy, except when it isn’t—like when the voice starts gabbing in the middle of a bank robbery. The only people who can help are the other Zeroes, who aren’t exactly best friends these days. Enter Nate, a.k.a. Bellwether, the group’s “glorious leader.” After Scam’s SOS, he pulls the scattered Zeroes back together. But when the rescue blows up in their faces, the Zeroes find themselves propelled into whirlwind encounters with ever more dangerous criminals. At the heart of the chaos they find Kelsie, who can take a crowd in the palm of her hand and tame it or let it loose as she pleases. Filled with high-stakes action and drama, Zeroes unites three powerhouse authors for the opening installment of a thrilling new series.
