From the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Darkest Minds comes a sweepingly ambitious, high-octane tale of power, destiny, love, and redemption.
Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals. They are hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality.
Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory after her family was murdered by a rival line. For years she's pushed away any thought of revenge against the man—now a god—responsible for their deaths.
Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek her out: Castor, a childhood friend Lore believed to be dead, and Athena, one of the last of the original gods, now gravely wounded.
The goddess offers an alliance against their mutual enemy and a way to leave the Agon behind forever. But Lore's decision to rejoin the hunt, binding her fate to Athena's, will come at a deadly cost—and it may not be enough to stop the rise of a new god with the power to bring humanity to its knees.
Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children's League call Ruby 'Leader', but she knows what she really is: a monster.
When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children's League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America's children and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future and who now wouldn't recognize her.
As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?
Don't miss this breathtaking collection of stories set in the world of the best-selling Darkest Minds trilogy, now in paperback:
A desperate young man is forced to make a terrible choice between his own survival and the future of a little girl who won't speak, but who changes his life in ways he could never imagine.
A spark of light brightens a brutal world when a girl named Sam encounters her childhood best friend at the government-run "rehabilitation" camp, Thurmond. Lucas and Sam form a risky escape plan, but sometimes even love isn't powerful enough to overcome unspeakable cruelty.
BEYOND THE NIGHT
The camps are closed. A tyrant president has been deposed. But for many Psi kids living rough, there is no home to return to, no place for them in a country devastated by the past and anxious about the future. Every day is a struggle for Sam, who knew all the rules at Thurmond and has been thrown into a terrifying and uncertain new life. But there's more at stake than Sam's own survival. She once made a promise to someone she loves, and the time has come to fulfill it.
From New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a collection of three hauntingly beautiful novellas set in the world of the Darkest Minds series. In the most harrowing of times, it takes a ferocious strength not only to survive, but to stand up for those who cannot fight their own battles. The characters in these stories--some new, some familiar--face impossible missions, and the hardest of all may be protecting the last flicker of hope in a seemingly endless night.
When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp." She might have survived the mysterious disease that killed most of America's children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.
Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.
But when the truth about Ruby's abilities--the truth she's hidden from everyone, even the camp authorities--comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. On the run, she joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp: Zu, a young girl haunted by her past; Chubs, a standoffish brainiac; and Liam, their fearless leader, who is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can't risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents.
While they journey to find the one safe haven left for kids like them--East River--they must evade their determined pursuers, including an organization that will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. But as they get closer to grasping the things they've dreamed of, Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.
Dans un futur proche, les adolescents ont été décimés par un virus inconnu. Les survivants, dotés de pouvoirs psychiques incontrôlables, sont classés par couleur en fonction du danger qu'ils représentent, et parqués dans des camps.
Ruby et quelques autres refusent cette fatalité et s'enfuient. Echapperont-ils à leurs poursuivants ? Et surtout, parviendront-ils à maîtriser leurs pouvoirs sans perdre leur âme ?
Dans un monde à la dérive, leur liberté fait peur. Pourtant, l'avenir est entre leur mains.
Hace mucho tiempo, Lore Perseus huyó de esa competición brutal a raíz del sádico asesinato de su familia por parte de un linaje rival, y dejó atrás las promesas de la caza de la gloria eterna. Durante años ha intentado evadir cualquier pensamiento de venganza hacia el hombre —ahora un dios— responsable de la muerte de su familia. Sin embargo, durante el último agón en Nueva York, dos participantes le piden ayuda: Cástor, su amigo de la infancia, a quien creía muerto, y Atenea, una de las últimas diosas originales, gravemente herida.
La diosa le ofrece una alianza contra su enemigo común y, además, una forma de que Lore pueda dejar el agón en el pasado para siempre. Pero la decisión de Lore de vincular su destino al de Atenea y volver a unirse a la caza tendrá un coste mortal, y puede que no sea suficiente para detener la aparición de un nuevo dios con el poder de poner a la humanidad de rodillas.
En parallèle, Etta et Nicholas mettent tout en oeuvre pour se retrouver et, enfin, se donner les moyens de vivre pleinement leur amour.
Un nouveau voyage à travers les siècles et les continents les attend, semé d'embûches, d'intrigues et de cas de conscience.
