"Luce e buio" è il secondo romanzo della Saga Sunrise, che segue il grande successo del primo titolo "Evoluzioni". L'umanità è relegata sottoterra da centinaia di anni in uno scenario post-apocalittico. Due ragazzi, aiutati da un indomito zio e una ragazzina droide dai poteri misteriosi, raggiungono il tanto atteso Livello 5. Iniziano così una nuova avventura, in un ambiente a loro sconosciuto, continuando la ricerca della verità e la personale lotta contro la Torre Centrale. Nuovi amici incroceranno i destini di Jeremy e JJ, ma anche nuove insidie renderanno la loro esperienza tutt'altro che semplice! "Il quinto livello era caratterizzato da una miriade di strade, tubature e rotaie sopraelevate che riempivano letteralmente tutto lo spazio respirabile; era impossibile avere una visione a lunga distanza, tale era la densità delle infrastrutture. Gli edifici erano tutti cubici, attaccati l'un l'altro seguendo regole architettoniche complicate, evidentemente teorizzate da qualche ingegnere robotico."

An internationally bestselling, acutely moving story set amidst the atrocities of the Bosnian war, Twice Born masterfully plumbs the depths of love, grief, and the all-consuming power of motherhood. Gemma hasn't been back to Sarajevo in sixteen years. She returns to teach her son Pietro about the city of his birth and the father he never knew. But the visit brings with it impassioned memories of her love affair with Pietro's father, their determination to have a child whatever the cost, and their deep connection to the city even as war threatened to destroy it. Brought to life by an unforgettable cast of characters, Twice Born is a tale of the acts of brutality and generosity that war can inspire, and of the bonds of family fused in times of crisis.

And Harry and his team will be deployed to deal with the unexpected - for failure is unthinkable.PRAISE FOR THE OLD MAN'S WAR SERIES"Clever dialogue, fast-paced story and strong characters."

"An epic love. An epic hate. An epic story that would last a lifetime." Today, 8:15 p.m. I hurt. I hurt so deeply, I felt the pain searing in my bones and jabbing like a hot poker into my heart. I knew nothing would make it better as the memories pulled from the crevices of my mind, detailing the bad and the ugly, filling my thoughts with regret as I slipped into the darkness. . . When I was eight, my mother was dying of cancer, my father lost his job, and the bank kicked us out of our house. I was forced to move to the strange town of Arlis, Texas where my father and I slept in our car in the hospital parking lot. Desperate and hopeless, we lived on fumes of our former life. Then one night, everything changed forever. A knock on the car window brought a family into my life that I only wanted to shut out. I hated charity and I hated the Masons. Well, except one. He made it impossible to hate him. Jess Mason had the biggest blue eyes and ornery smile of any boy I had ever seen. He was a ray of sunshine in my dark world. A boy full of adventure, dragging me across the meadow of Sprayberry Ranch; a beautiful Texas paradise full of horses and tree houses that got us into more trouble than anyone ever imagined. Jess was my everything as a kid until we grew up and the rules changed. Instead of living happily ever after with a boy full of love. . . I destroyed it. - Alex Tanner Author Note: The Mason List is a coming-of-age story that follows the life of Alex Tanner from the age of six to twenty-six.
