È l'aprile 1978: sono passati tre anni da quando un misterioso virus ha decimato uno dopo l'altro tutti gli adulti di Berlino. In una città spettrale e decadente, gli unici superstiti sono i ragazzi e le ragazze divisi in gruppi rivali, che ogni giorno lottano per sopravvivere con un'unica certezza: dopo i sedici anni, quando meno se lo aspettano, il virus ucciderà anche loro. Tutto cambia quando qualcuno rapisce il piccolo Theo e lo porta via dall'isola dove viveva con Christa e le ragazze dell'Havel. Per salvare il bambino, Christa ha bisogno dell'aiuto di Jakob e dei suoi compagni di Gropiusstadt: insieme dovranno attraversare una Berlino fantasma fino all'aeroporto di Tegel, covo del più violento gruppo della città. Là, i fuochi che salgono nella notte confondono le luci con le ombre, il bene con il male, la vita con la morte. E quando sorgerà l'alba del nuovo giorno, Jakob e Christa non saranno più gli stessi. «Tutto l'amore che vorremmo lasciare sulla terra, dietro di noi, prima di morire, è difficile chiuderlo dentro delle parole.»

I read somewhere that the decision to emigrate comes from a need to breathe. The hope of a better life is stronger than any other feeling. My mother decided it was better to know I was in danger far from her; but on the way to a different future, than to know I was in danger near her; but stuck in the same old fear. At the age of ten, Enaiatollah Akbari was left alone to fend for himself. This is the heartbreaking, unforgettable story of his journey from Afghanistan to Italy in an attempt to find a safe place to live.

When literary agent Peter Katz receives a partial book submission entitled The Book of Mirrors, he is intrigued by its promise and original voice. The author, Richard Flynn, has written a memoir about his time as an English student at Princeton in the late 1980s, documenting his relationship with the protaegaee of the famous Professor Joseph Wieder. One night just before Christmas 1987, Wieder was brutally murdered in his home. The case was never solved. Now, twenty-five years later, Katz suspects that Richard Flynn is either using his book to confess to the murder, or to finally reveal who committed the violent crime. But the manuscript ends abruptly--and its author is dying in the hospital with the missing pages nowhere to be found. Hell-bent on getting to the bottom of the story, Katz hires investigative journalist John Keller to research the murder and reconstruct the events for a true crime version of the memoir. Keller tracks down several of the mysterious key players, including retired police detective Roy Freeman, one of the original investigators assigned to the murder case, but he has just been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's. Inspired by John Keller's investigation, he decides to try and solve the case once and for all, before he starts losing control of his mind. A trip to the Potosi Correctional Centre in Missouri, several interviews, and some ingenious police work finally lead him to a truth that has been buried for over two decades...or has it?

Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City's two ruling rival families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her parents' sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the generations-long political feud — and unite all those living in the Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished mystics who dwell below in the Depths. But Aria doesn't remember falling in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her memory. And she can't conceive why her parents would have agreed to unite with the Fosters in the first place. Only when Aria meets Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers of recollection — and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city — including herself.
