… E La Terra Finì

Bob Langson, uno scienziato dell’alba del 2000, decide di sottoporsi a un esperimento di ibernazione con un metodo da lui stesso scoperto. Il suo letargo dovrà durare mille anni. Sylvia, che lo ama in segreto, gli propone di seguirlo nel lungo sonno, e Bob che finalmente s’accorge di amare e d’essere amato, accetta. I due giovani dormono così, fianco a fianco, per mille anni. Quando si risvegliano, nel 3000, il mondo è cambiato; dissidi e guerre sono parole ormai dimenticate, il benessere regna ovunque, gli uomini hanno già percorso la via delle stelle. Gli Uomini? Sono proprio ancora uomini gli esseri che hanno conquistato l’immortalità e che regnano in pace sulla Terra? Sono alti, bellissimi, giovani, tuttavia non possono avere discendenti. Che faranno i due esseri mortali in quel mondo di gente che non conosce la morte? Si amano, e ineluttabilmente darebbero vita ad altri mortali, così che sulla Terra si formerebbero due razze, e guerre e conflitti ricomincerebbero fatalmente. Per queste e altre ragioni si pensa di esiliare Bob e Sylvia su un altro pianeta, soli, come lo furono Adamo ed Eva. Tuttavia qualcosa accade, e le condizioni dei due giovani mutano sostanzialmente. Alla luce dei nuovi fatti, gli unici due superstiti dell’antica razza creeranno la Nuova Umanità o si rifiuteranno di dar vita a discendenti il cui destino sarà di nuovo la fatica e il dolore?

Worldbinder: The Sixth Book of the Runelords

**The bestselling epic breaks new ground

**After the events of *Sons of the Oak* , Fallion and Jaz, the sons of the great Earth King Gaborn, are living as fugitives in their own kingdom, newly invaded and secretly controlled by supernatural being of ultimate evil. The sons are hiding until they can regain their rightful places in the land.

Fallion seems destined to heal the world, and feels the supernatural calling to act. When he calls on his powers to do so though, two entire worlds collapse into one, and every living thing on both worlds is transformed into an entirely new being—yet still somehow the same. Evil is certainly still the same, and may have influenced this for a terrible purpose. 
### From Publishers Weekly
Two worlds collide in the sixth installment of Farland’s Runelords epic (after 2006’s Sons of the Oak). When the Seal of Creation was broken, the original, peaceful home of humanity shattered into thousands of flawed worlds, of which Earth is one. Seeking to mend the Seal of Inferno, which was damaged by the evil Queen of the Loci after her escape from the netherworld, flameweaver Fallion Orden instead reunites Earth with another world, causing strange meldings of bodies and landscapes. As inhabitants of both worlds struggle to comprehend the changes to themselves and their surroundings, various evildoers take advantage of the chaos, and Fallion and his companions must do what most heroes do: save the world and stay alive. Farland excels in dreamlike imagery that describes much but explains little, and the wildly complicated plot and lack of backstory may frustrate new readers.

“David Gemmell tells a very real adventure, the stuff of true epic fantasy.”
–R. A. Salvatore, New York Times Bestselling author

John Shannow, The Jerusalem Man, lived in a world that had toppled on its axis. Civilization had been replaced by ruthlessness and savagery. Relentless in his quest for peace, Shannow followed a path that led only to bloodshed and sorrow.

Abaddon, the Lord of the Pit, sought to plunge mankind into a new Satanic era. His Hellborn army spewed forth from the Plague Lands with an unholy force stemming from human sacrifice. For it was the blood of innocents that fueled the corrupted Sipstrassi Stones of Power–the source of Abaddon’s might.

But the Hellborn made a fatal mistake–they took the woman who had stolen Shannow’s heart. He would move Heaven and Earth to save her or he would die trying.

Whispers Under Ground

Peter Grant is learning magic fast. And its just as well – he’s already had run ins with the deadly supernatural children of the Thames and a terrifying killer in Soho. Progression in the Police Force is less easy. Especially when you work in a department of two. A department that doesn’t even officially exist. A department that if you did describe it to most people would get you laughed at. And then there’s his love life. The last person he fell for ended up seriously dead. It wasn’t his fault, but still. Now something horrible is happening in the labyrinth of tunnels that make up the tube system that honeycombs the ancient foundations of London. And delays on the Northern line is the very least of it. Time to call in the Met’s Economic and Specialist Crime Unit 9, aka “The Folly”. Time to call in PC Peter Grant, Britains Last Wizard.

Whispers at Moonrise

*Shadow Falls Camp is back in session with the most explosive installment yet.  A shocking new threat will rock Shadow Falls—changing it forever and altering Kylie’s journey in ways she never imagined.*
Even at a camp for supernatural teens, Kylie Galen has never been normal. Not only can she see ghosts, but she doesn’t seem to belong to any one species—she exhibits traits from them all. As Kylie struggles to unlock the secrets of her identity, she begins to worry that Lucas will never be able to accept her for what she is, and what she isn’t…a werewolf.  With his pack standing in their way, Kylie finds herself turning more and more to Derek, the only person in her life who’s willing to accept the impossible.
As if life isn’t hard enough, she starts getting visits from the ghost of Holiday, her closest confidante.  Trouble is, Holiday isn’t dead…not yet anyway.  Now Kylie must race to save one of her own from an unseen danger before it’s too late—all while trying to stop her relationship with Lucas from slipping away forever.   In a world of constant confusion, there’s only one thing Kylie knows for sure.  Change is inevitable and all things must come to an end…maybe even her time at Shadow Falls.
The breathtaking fourth installment of the New York Times bestselling Shadow Falls series from author C. C. Hunter…Whispers at Moonrise.
