Presley Hall - Stolen
How ​can we be fated mates? We drive each other crazy. Kidnapped by aliens? Yeah, I don’t think so. These Kalixian warriors may have rescued me from depraved Orkun warlords who abducted me, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to obey their every command. I was a CEO back on Earth, and I don’t take orders from any man. Not even from Malav. Especially not from Malav. Never mind that he’s the most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen—even with his horns and color-changing eyes. Never mind that his prowess in the gladiator ring makes my heart beat faster and my body ache. I refuse to let myself fall for an alien. And even though I can’t deny the chemistry that sparks between us, I can’t afford to get attached to anyone on this planet. Because I’ve got a secret. I’m going to steal a ship. And I’m going to go home.

Peter Krassa - Reinhard Habeck - A ​fáraók fénye
Egyiptom. ​Ebben a hagyományokhoz kötött országban a tudomány már évezredekkel ezelőtt rendkívül fejlettséget ért el. Az ősi birodalom papjai olyan előrehaladott technológia birtokában voltak, amely a maival is felvenné a versenyt. Már akkor használták az elektromos áramot, léteztek légi járművek ("napbárkák") megsemmisítő fegyverek ("sugárágyúk"), rádió és tévéműholdak valamint tv-készülékek (varázstükrök). Kinek volt mindez köszönhető? Régi írások erre utalóan kilenc ősistent neveznek meg. Ők az idők kezdetén napbárkáikon érkeztek az "égből". A fáraók birodalmának tudományos és kultúrális virágzása az ő javukra írható. De kik voltak ezek az idegenek? Hol volt a hazájuk? És miért törekedtek arra hogy arcukat eltakarják a nyilvánosság elől? E könyv szerzőinek először sikerült - valós bizonyítékok birtokában - bepillantani a rejtélyes "istenálarca" mögé.

Catherynne M. Valente - Space ​Opera
The ​Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy meets Eurovision in an over-the-top science fiction spectacle from bestselling author Catherynne Valente has galaxies competing for glory in a universe-wide musical contest—where the stakes are as high as the fate of planet Earth. A century ago, the Sentience Wars tore the galaxy apart and nearly ended the entire concept of intelligent space-faring life. In the aftermath, a curious tradition was invented—something to cheer up everyone who was left and bring the shattered worlds together in the spirit of peace, unity, and understanding. Once every cycle, the civilizations gather for Galactivision—part gladiatorial contest, part beauty pageant, part concert extravaganza, and part continuation of the wars of the past. Instead of competing in orbital combat, the powerful species that survived face off in a competition of song, dance, or whatever can be physically performed in an intergalactic talent show. The stakes are high for this new game, and everyone is forced to compete. This year, though, humankind has discovered the enormous universe. And while they expected to discover a grand drama of diplomacy, gunships, wormholes, and stoic councils of aliens, they have instead found glitter, lipstick, and electric guitars. Mankind will not get to fight for its destiny—they must sing. A band of human musicians, dancers, and roadies have been chosen to represent Earth on the greatest stage in the galaxy. And the fate of their species lies in their ability to rock.

Aleksandr Voinov - Incursion
When ​the local authorities ask Kyle Juenger to hunt a shape-shifting Glyrinny spy, he can't refuse. After all, he can use the reward to replace his paralyzed legs with cyberware, and maybe even to return to his home planet. Besides, he hates the morphs-those invasive, brain-eating monstrosities whose weapons cost him his legs. Kyle's best lead is the Scorpion, a mercenary ship armed to the teeth. Grimm, the "Scorpion's" pilot and captain, fascinates Kyle. He's everything Kyle lost with his legs, and he's from the same home world. He's also of the warrior caste-half priest, half savior. But Grimm's been twisted by life as a merc, and Kyle's stuck undercover as a criminal on the run. That doesn't stop Grimm from coming on to Kyle, or from insisting he's more than the sum of his past and his useless legs. But Kyle has other concerns-like tracking a dangerous morph who could be wearing anyone's face. And as if things weren't complicated enough, Kyle can't tell if Grimm is part of the solution . . . or part of the problem.
