Michael Grant - Köddé váltak 2.
Három hónap telt el azóta, hogy a város minden tizenöt évnél idősebb lakója köddé vált. Az élelem hetekkel korábban elfogyott. A kamaszok éheznek, de senki sem talál megoldást a problémára. Mind többen fedeznek fel magukban ijesztő természetfeletti képességeket, a többiek pedig félnek mutáns társaiktól. Egyre nő a feszültség, és egy szörnyű tragédia után végképp úrrá lesz a káosz a városon: a normálisak harcolni kezdenek a mutánsok ellen. Mindenki harcol mindenki ellen, és még a jók is gyilkolni kezdenek. Azonban még egy nagyobb veszély is fenyegeti a közösséget. A Sötétség, egy titokzatos teremtmény, aki eddig a hegyek mélyén élt, beszélni kezd néhány mutánshoz. Suttog hozzájuk, irányítja, hívogatja őket. A Sötétség felébredt álmából, és táplálékot keres.

Michael Grant - Front ​Lines
1942. ​World War II. The most terrible war in human history. Millions are dead; millions more are still to die. The Nazis rampage across Europe and eye far-off America. The green, untested American army is going up against the greatest fighting force ever assembled—the armed forces of Nazi Germany. But something has changed. A court decision makes females subject to the draft and eligible for service. So in this World War II, women and girls fight, too. As the fate of the world hangs in the balance, three girls sign up to fight. Rio Richlin, Frangie Marr, and Rainy Schulterman are average girls, girls with dreams and aspirations, at the start of their lives, at the start of their loves. Each has her own reasons for volunteering. Not one expects to see actual combat. Not one expects to be on the front lines. Rio, Frangie, and Rainy will play their parts in the war to defeat evil and save the human race. They will fear and they will rage; they will suffer and they will inflict suffering; they will hate and they will love. They will fight the greatest war the world has ever known. New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant has created a masterful alternate history of World War II in Front Lines, the first volume in a groundbreaking series.

Michael Grant - From ​Rome to Byzantium
The ​Byzantine Empire, founded by Constantine as the core of power in the East, began to flourish in the fifth century AD, yet its culture and history are still not as well-known as that of the Western and Roman Empire. In From Rome to Byzantium Michael Grant provides a fresh insight into the nature of the Byzantine Empire in the fifth century, and the history of invasion prior to the genesis of the Empire. In this lavishly illustrated book, Grant examines a comparatively unexplored area and constructs the history of an empire which rivals the former richness and diversity of ancient Rome.

Michael Grant - Róma ​császárai
Az ​egyetemi oktatás céljait szolgáló munka a Római Birodalom császárkorának (Kr.e. 31-Kr.u. 476) kiemelkedő uralkodóit mutatja be velős életrajzi cikkek, portrétanulmányok formájában. Rajtuk kívül e félezer év alatt még hivatalosan létezett vagy száz uralkodó, ám ezek többségének hatalma vagy csak kis területre korlátozódott (mert ellencsászárok voltak, szűk körben támogatott önjelöltek) vagy más okból (pl. uralkodásuk rövidsége miatt) voltak jelentéktelenek. A szerző elöljáróban megállapítja, hogy ezek az emberileg-szellemileg nagyon különböző "koronás fők" mindenképp súlyos felelősséget hordoztak, hiszen a világ legnagyobb területű és máig legtöbb népet, népcsoportot magába foglaló birodalma kormányzásának terhét viselték - föltétlenül figyelemre méltó tehát működésük emlékezete. Arról nem is szólva, hogy Augustus, Diocletianus vagy Constantinus nélkül bizonyosan másként alakult volna a világ történelme, mint velük; a művelődéstörténet pedig számon tartja a tehetségtelen akarnokokat, a szeszélyes vagy őrült gonosztevő uralkodókat is (pl. Nero, Caligula). ; A kilencvenkét életrajz időrendben és dinasztiánként következik. A cikk címében a császár nevének ma elterjedten használatos - tehát rövid - alakja áll és uralkodásának évszáma. A tanulmányok megemlékeznek születésének körülményeiről, családjáról, neveltetéséről, politikai vagy katonai pályafutásának állomásairól, trónra jutásának körülményeiről, uralkodásának jellemző eseményeiről és epizódjairól (mint háborúk, belpolitikai lépések, trónviszályok, fontos intézkedések stb.), értékelik működésének eredményeit, esetleges kudarcait, emberi arcélét, jellemét és persze élete lezárultát. Természetesen az életrajzok mind tartalmi, mind terjedelmi szempontból nagyon eltérőek, hiszen tükrözik egy-egy császár jelentős vagy jelentéktelen mivoltát, de azt is, hogy milyen minőségű és mennyiségű forrás maradt fönn róluk. Valamennyi cikket a lehető leghitelesebb - többnyire a pénzek, érmek alapján rekonstruált - portréábrázolás illusztrálja. ; A Nyugat-Római Birodalom összeomlásának esztendejében (Kr.u. 475 októberétől 476 szeptemberéig) uralkodó Romulus császár szomorú és történelmi korszakot lezáró életrajza után áll a Latin és görög szerzők jegyzéke (azaz a forrásként fölhasznált ókori művek alkotóinak kislexikona), a Latin kifejezések magyarázata és a térképmellékletek névmutatója. A dinasztiákat illusztráló leszármazási táblázatokkal is szemléltetett kötet sokkal több, mint egyetemi segédkönyv - kitűnő kézikönyv, lebilincselő olvasmány.

Michael Grant - Köddé ​váltak
Egy ​szempillantás alatt mindenki eltűnt. Kivéve a fiatalokat: a kamaszokat. Csak a középiskolások maradtak, rendőrök nélkül, orvosok, szülők nélkül. Éppilyen hirtelen megszűntek a telefonvonalak, az internet, a tévéműsorok. Nem lehet kideríteni, mi történt. Nincs, aki segítene. Felüti a fejét az éhezés. Terjed az erőszak. Egy sötét alak ólálkodik a fiatalok körül. Az állatok átalakulnak. Maguk a kamaszok is új képességekre tesznek szert - sosem látott, veszélyes, halálos erőkre - amik napról napra növekednek. Veszélyekkel teli, új világ születik. Csoportok alakulnak, nő az összecsapás esélye. A külvárosi fiúk összefognak a gazdag kölykök ellen. Az erősek a védtelenek ellen. És fogy az idő: a születésnapodon te is el fogsz tűnni, mint mindenki más.

Michael Grant - Katherine Applegate - Eve ​& Adam - Éva és Ádám
Kezdetben ​vala az alma. Azután a baleset, a szörnyű, bénító sérülés és a kórház. Evening Spiker alig nyeri vissza az eszméletét, amikor egy furcsa fiú már ki is viszi a kórházból, és sietve az édesanyja kutatóintézetébe, a Spiker Biotechnológiai Gyógyszergyárba szállítja. Itt Eve-nek más dolga sincs, minthogy gyógyuljon, és elviselje a kísérteties elszigeteltségét, amelyet csak uralkodó természetű anyja, egy furcsa orvoscsapat és az ideszállításában közreműködő titokzatos fiú szakít meg időről időre. Amikor Eve már azt hiszi, biztosan meghal – bár nem éppen a sérüléseitől, hanem az unalomtól – anyja különleges feladatot bíz rá: meg kell terveznie a tökéletes fiút. Eve egy az emberi genetika oktatására kifejlesztett lenyűgözően aprólékos szimuláció segítségével nekiáll, hogy tetőtől talpig megtervezzen egy fiút: a szemét, a haját, az izmait, sőt még az agyát és a lehetséges személyiségjegyeit is. Éva megtervezi Ádámot aki maga lesz a tökély, a tökéletes emberpéldány, a tökéletes pár... vagy mégse?
