Steelheart es el primer volumen de la elogiada «Trilogía de los Reckoners» de Brandon Sanderson, el autor de fantasía épica que más lectores está ganado en todo el mundo y que ya se ha convertido en el futuro heredero del trono de todo un género. Diez años atrás, Calamity irrumpió en la ciudad en la forma de una explosión en el cielo que otorgó a algunos seres poderes extraordinarios. A estos se los empezó a llamar Épicos, y pronto subyugaron a la población empleando sus increíbles poderes con el afán de gobernar la voluntad de los hombres y conquistar el mundo. Ahora, un tirano y furioso Épico llamado Steelheart se ha proclamado dueño y señor de la ciudad de Chicago Nova. De él se dice que es invencible; ninguna bala puede hacerle daño, ninguna espada puede atravesar su piel, ningún fuego quemar su cuerpo. Nadie se atreve a desafiarlo... Nadie salvo los Reckoners, un grupo clandestino que no goza de poderes pero sí de una férrea disciplina, conseguida tras pasarse la vida estudiando el comportamiento de los Épicos con el objetivo de hallar sus puntos débiles y poder así exterminarlos. El joven David Charleston se unirá a ellos con el fin de vengar la muerte de su padre a manos de Steelheart. El chico tiene una cualidad que le distingue del resto: sabe que el Épico no es invencible. David es el único que ha visto sangrar a Steelheart. Reseñas: «Brandon Sanderson es una leyenda.» Alexelcapo, @EvilAFM «Por desgracia para mi ego, Steelheart es otra victoria de Sanderson, con lo que demuestra no solo que es un brillante narrador de fantasía épica, sino que, rotundamente, es un escritor brillante.» Patrick Rothfuss, autor de El nombre del viento «Una aventura trepidante y llena de tensión. Brandon Sanderson es uno de los mejores escritores de fantasía y ciencia ficción que hay actualmente.» Christopher Paolini, autor de Eragon

And now Regalia has turned his closest ally into a dangerous enemy. David knew Prof’s secret, and kept it even when Prof struggled to control the effects of his Epic powers.

The #1 New York Times bestseller and sequel to Steelheart from Brandon Sanderson, the author of Oathbringer, 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! 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 android is caught in a conflict between humans and aliens in this novel by the New York Times–bestselling author of Galactic Bounty. Years ago, when humans and androids crash landed onto the planet Zuul, whatever remained of their society quickly succumbed to the ravages of earthquakes and a never-ending winter from volcanic dust clouds. As humans and machines scavenged to stay alive, they also faced the Zid, an alien race that abhors all technology with religious fervor. Add to that the Mothri--giant, bug-like aliens with brilliant minds and their own nanotechnology--and it is no longer simply the planet’s geological upheaval that proves volatile. War between the races looms. Will Doon, tired and reluctant, rise to lead the fight? Can humans harness technology to save the planet, itself, before the Zid arrive? And, what secrets does Doon carry inside of him that might help them all?

Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire is the first book in a spellbinding fantasy adventure series by screenwriter John August. Some trails lead to magic. Some lead to danger. As Arlo looked around, the walls of his room began to vanish, revealing a moonlit forest. Only his bed remained, and the frame of his window, through which he saw the girl. The world on her side of the glass was sparkling with silver and gold, like a palace made of autumn leaves. She looked off to her right. Someone was coming. Her words came in an urgent whisper: "If I can see you, they can see you . . . Be careful, Arlo Finch.” Arlo Finch thought becoming a Ranger meant learning wilderness skills, like camping and knots. But upon arriving in the tiny town of Pine Mountain, Colorado, Arlo soon learns there's so much more. His new friends Indra and Wu teach him how to harness the wild magic seeping in from the mysterious Long Woods—a parallel realm of wonder and danger. First he must master the basics, including snaplights, thunderclaps and identifying supernatural creatures. But Arlo Finch is no ordinary Ranger, and this is no ordinary time. A dark and ancient force is sending threats into the real world . . . our world. Through perilous adventures and close calls, Arlo is awakened to his unique destiny—but the obstacles he faces will test the foundations of the Ranger's Vow: loyalty, bravery, kindness, and truth.

"EPIC... Medieval Romance!" ~ Claire Delacroix, NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author 1192 A.D. - David de Lohr, the younger brother of the great Christopher de Lohr (RISE OF THE DEFENDER), is a man who has lived his entire life in his prestigious older brother's shadow. While his brother was nicknamed "The Lion's Claw" as the right hand of Richard the Lionheart, David was nicknamed "The Lion Cub" because of his youth. But David is a force to be reckoned with. Lightning-fast with a sword, he is a knight of the highest order and worthy of his own great legacy. And so, the story of David de Lohr, the knight with the heart of steel, begins. Newly returned from the Holy Land where he fought with the Christian armies, David returns to find that England is perhaps more dangerous that the sands of The Levant. At a grand tournament given by Richard's brother, John, David finds himself entrenched in the danger of the politics of England. Mercenaries hired by the prince are posing as legitimate knights, trying to kill those loyal to Richard. News of Richard's disappearance on his way home from the Holy Land only feeds John's lust for the throne. As he brings a mercenary army to England's shores, David and his brother must combat this tide of evil. Politics and mayhem follow David wherever he goes. But what David didn't count on was the introduction of a lovely young woman, the daughter of the Earl of Canterbury. Casually acquainted at first, David must save Emilie Hampton from the prince's clutches not once but several times, throwing Emilie and David together again and again. Emilie makes her feelings for David known but David, the confirmed bachelor, is terrified of his feelings for her. As the fight for Richard's throne gains in intensity, David finds himself increasingly distracted by the lovely lady who has stolen his heart. It's politics, mystery, passion, and chaos for David and Emilie as they try to find their way in a world that would see the two lovers torn apart.

When one of Serilda's outlandish tales draws the attention of the sinister Erlking and his undead hunters, she finds herself swept away into a grim world where ghouls and phantoms prowl the earth and hollow-eyed ravens track her every move. The king orders Serilda to complete the impossible task of spinning straw into gold, or be killed for telling falsehoods. In her desperation, Serilda unwittingly summons a mysterious boy to her aid. He agrees to help her... for a price. Love isn't meant to be part of the bargain. Soon Serilda realizes that there is more than one secret hidden in the castle walls, including an ancient curse that must be broken if she hopes to end the tyranny of the king and his wild hunt forever.
