Christopher Golden - Uncharted: ​A negyedik labirintus
Az ​ókori világban élt egy mítosz egy királyról, egy kincsről és egy pokoli labirintusról. E pokol kapuja most ismét feltárul. Nathan Drake hivatásos kincsvadászt és vakmerő kalandort New Yorkba hívja az az ember, aki mindent megtanított neki a „műtárgybegyüjtő-bizniszről”. Victor Sullivannek szüksége van Drake segítségére, mert régi barátját, Luka Hzujak világhírű régészt holtan találták Manhattanben. Nyomukban a gyilkosokkal, Drake, Sully és Jada, Hzujak lánya egyiptomi és görögországi ásatásokon próbálják kideríteni, mi lehetett az a megdöbbentő felfedezés, amely miatt végeztek a tudóssal. Ehhez fel kell fedniük az alkímia egyik ősi mítoszának rejtélyét, és meg kell találniuk a három régóta elveszett labirintust. Kiderül, hogy egy másik országban, egy másik kultúrában épült egy negyedik labirintus is, amely páratlan gazdagság és hatalom kulcsát rejti. A föld alatti útvesztőt rettenetes, elfeledett katonákból álló sereg, és természetesen egy szörnyeteg is őrzi. A titok pedig egyszerre kincs és méreg, paradicsom és pokol – feltéve, hogy Drake egyáltalán eljut hozzá élve. Légy üdvözölve a negyedik labirintusban!

Christopher Golden - Uncharted: ​The Fourth Labyrinth
The ​official novel of Naughty Dog’s award-winning videogame franchise! In the ancient world there was a myth about a king, a treasure, and a hellish labyrinth. Now the doors to that hell are open once again. Nathan Drake, treasure hunter and risk taker, has been called to New York City by the man who taught him everything about the “antiquities acquisition business.” Victor Sullivan needs Drake’s help. Sully’s old friend, a world-famous archaeologist, has just been found murdered in Manhattan. Dodging assassins, Drake, Sully, and the dead man’s daughter, Jada Hzujak, race from New York to underground excavations in Egypt and Greece. Their goal: to unravel an ancient myth of alchemy, look for three long-lost labyrinths, and find the astonishing discovery that got Jada’s father killed. It appears that a fourth labyrinth was built in another land and another culture—and within it lies a key to unmatched wealth and power. An army of terrifying lost warriors guards this underground maze. So does a monster. And what lies beyond—if Drake can live long enough to reach it—is both a treasure and a poison, a paradise and a hell. Welcome to The Fourth Labyrinth.

Christopher Golden - The ​Pandora Room
When ​what appears to be the original Pandora's Box is discovered in an ancient city, neighboring countries fight for ownership and unleash a terrible plague. The Pandora Room is New York Times bestselling author Christopher Golden’s chilling exploration of what happens when the original Pandora's Box is discovered in an ancient subterranean city, stirring international conflict and exposing the archaeological team to curses, whispers, and the terror of a legendary plague. In one ancient variation on the myth of Pandora’s Box, there were two jars, one for Pandora and one for her sister, Anesidora. One contained all the blessings of the gods, the other all the world’s curses. Now, in a subterranean city in Northern Iraq, archaeologist Sophie Durand has discovered a secret chamber covered in writing that confirms that version of the tale—a chamber which contains a single jar. “Weird shit” expert Ben Walker joins Sophie’s team just as the mystery deepens and grows ugly. Those who believe the myth want to know which jar has been found in the Pandora Room, the one containing blessings, or the one full of curses. Governments rush to lay claim, but jihadi forces aren’t waiting for the dust to settle. Whatever the jar contains, they want it, no matter who they have to kill…or what will emerge when they open it. For Sophie, Walker, and the others, the Pandora Room may soon become their tomb.

Since ​the beginning of time, the demonic races have gathered every century to resolve conflicts among them and to determine the course of their future. This centennial event was called the Dark Congress. In the second century b.c., however, the Dark Congress failed to resolve their conflicts. Instead, the Congress ignited into a war that drove wedges between the various demon races from that time until now. And all of it began as a result of Kandida, the great North African river demon, being nearly killed by forces in the Congress and magically entombed in the riverbank. But now, Kandida is free, and for the first time in centuries, the Dark Congress is being called again. All demon races and other varieties of supernatural creatures have been called to gather at the Hellmouth in Providence, Rhode Island. Some gather in hopes of resolution, some in favor of war, and Kandida is tasked to broker a treaty and guide the Congress to peace, wherein everyone might simply agree to disagree. And so the demons gather under a banner of a truce. But the demons still harbor many bitter disagreements with one another. The Congress must have an arbiter of these conflicts, and that someone is Buffy Summers. Buffy is horrified and disgusted to be included. After all, she is not a demon...is she? She knows so little about her powers that she cannot say for certain where they truly spring from. How can she spend so much time wallowing in the darkness without becoming part of it? Can she possibly agree to a truce with all the horrors of the world, and allow them to come Providence without any attempt to stop them? And does she have a choice?
