Nessuno credeva che un Eliminatore potesse sconfiggere un Epico, eppure l’indomabile Steelheart è morto per mano di David Charleston. Nonostante la vendetta di David sia compiuta e suo padre sia stato vendicato, la scomparsa di Steelheart non ha aiutato la causa di chi, come gli Eliminatori, si batte per sottrarsi alla crudele egemonia degli Epici, esseri che si servono dei loro poteri straordinari per tenere sotto il proprio giogo l’umanità intera. David sa che la battaglia per restituire agli uomini il diritto di uscire dal buio in cui si sono rintanati sarà ancora lunga e sfiancante, e dovrà superare i confini della città di Newcago, ormai libera. Adesso l’obiettivo degli Eliminatori è Regalia, l’Epico despota di Babilonia Rinata, la città che un tempo fu Manhattan. La via che conduce a Firefight, colui che ora tiene le redini del potere, passa da qui, ma l’impresa è rischiosa e lasciarsi guidare dalla sola sete di vendetta può essere molto pericoloso... Dopo Steelheart, il secondo volume di una serie imperdibile.

Tutto ebbe inizio quando Calamity, l’ardente stella rossa, illuminò il cielo, dando inizio all’era dominata dagli Epici. Il destino di David Charleston è stato legato alla loro malvagità fin da quella storica notte. Steelheart ha ucciso suo padre, Firefight ha segnato per sempre la sua vita. Ora non restano che i nemici che abitano Ildithia, la città di sale, il luogo in cui risiedono tutte le risposte e dove avrà inizio la battaglia finale contro gli oppressori. Perché David e i suoi Eliminatori sono sempre più vicini a carpire il segreto che gli Epici si ostinano a celare, così come i loro punti deboli. Una battaglia impari, in cui ogni cosa è messa a repentaglio. Ma quando tutto sembra ormai perduto, uno spiraglio di salvezza illumina il destino degli Eliminatori. La fine non è ancora giunta, e David è abbastanza coraggioso e folle da affrontare faccia a faccia il più potente degli Epici e ristabilire per sempre il giusto corso degli eventi. O perire. Il terzo e conclusivo capitolo di una saga irripetibile, l’epopea di una genia di eletti votati all’estremo sacrificio, mossi da un invincibile anelito di libertà.

Joel ha da sempre una passione per la Ritmatica, la disciplina che consente di infondere vita in entità bidimensionali, semplici linee tracciate con il gesso, e creare creature indipendenti e autonome, i gesseri, in grado di interagire con ciò che li circonda. Ma Joel non è un Ritmatista e non può far altro che guardare con ammirazione e un pizzico d’invidia i giovani eletti che studiano alla sua stessa scuola. I Ritmatisti vengono prescelti da un Maestro dopo una misteriosa cerimonia di iniziazione e sono i soli in grado di contrastare i letali gesseri selvatici, spietate creature deviate che seminano il terrore. Figlio di un’addetta alle pulizie nella scuola, Joel ha la possibilità di osservarli alle prese con l’arte che lui stesso vorrebbe praticare. Quando, all’improvviso, gli studenti iniziano a scomparire uno ad uno, lasciando tracce di sangue, sarà Joel, come assistente del professor Fitch, a indagare su un mistero che sembra risalire alla sinistra Torre del Nebrask, il centro dell’arcipelago delle Isole Unite. Affiancato dalla sua eccentrica amica Melody, Joel arriverà a scoprire una verità che potrebbe cambiare per sempre il destino del mondo. Riuscirà il giovane Joel a sfuggire ai pericoli e a realizzare il suo sogno di diventare un Ritmatista?

"An empty apartment, a missing family, that's creepy. But this is like finding a military base with no one on it. Fighters and tanks idling on the runway with no drivers. This is bad juju. Something wrong happened here. What you should do is tell everyone to leave." The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Ilus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire. Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage, and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world. The struggle on Ilus threatens to spread all the way back to Earth. James Holden and the crew of his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the midst of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail. And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilization that once stood on this land is gone. And that something killed it.

David's fate has been tied to their villainy ever since that historic night. Steelheart killed his father. Firefight stole his heart.

But facing Obliteration in Babilar was too much. Once the Reckoners' leader, Prof has now embraced his Epic destiny. He's disappeared into those murky shadows of menace Epics are infamous for the world over, and everyone knows there's no turning back. . . . But everyone is wrong.

The #1 New York Times bestseller and sequel to Steelheart—a novel that James Dashner called “fantastic.” Brandon Sanderson, the author of Words of Radiance, coauthor of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn trilogy, presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight. And don’t miss Calamity, the exciting conclusion to the Reckoners series available now! Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart--invincible, immortal, unconquerable--is dead. And he died by David's hand. Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers. Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic Regalia, Babylon Restored is flooded and miserable, but David is sure it's the path that will lead him to what he needs to find. Entering a city oppressed by a High Epic despot is risky, but David's willing to take the gamble. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic--Firefight. And now he will go on a quest darker and even more dangerous than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.

An idealistic young prince convinces an aging warrior and a struggling witch to help him kill the dragon that is terrorizing his kingdom As a vicious dragon stalks the Southlands, Crown Prince Gareth ventures to the forbidding North in search of the only man who can kill it. He is Lord Aversin, the Dragonsbane, whose dragon-slaying days have won him renown across the land. But when Gareth finds Lord Aversin, he discovers the mighty hero is squat and bespectacled, the ruler of a mud-village who admits that he killed the dragon not with a lance, but with ignoble poison. Still, he’ll have to do.
