Kevin J. Anderson - Az ​X-akták - Az áldozat
Amikor ​egy amerikai archeológus, Cassandra Rubicon nyomtalanul eltűnik az ősi maya város, Xitaclan feltárása közben, FBI-nyomozók indulnak Mexikóba, hogy megkeressék. Nem akármilyen FBI-nyomozók ők. Fox Mulder és Dana Scully különleges ügynökök, a megmagyarázhatatlan, természetfölötti esetek, az X-akták szakértői. Azt azonban ők sem tudják, hogy Xitaclanban háromoldalú háború folyik. Résztvevői a közép-amerikai kábítószerkereskedők, a nemzetközi műtárgycsempészek és egy titkos amerikai kommandó, melynek valamely furcsa, ismeretlen jeleket sugárzó adót kellene megsemmisítenie. Cassandra apjának segítségével az ügynökök feltárják Xitaclan titkát. Fölfedezik, mi történt Cassandra eltűnt régészcsoportjával. S mielőtt még a háború kitörne, rálelnek az ősi erőre is, melyet a mayák talán még ismertek. Amelyhez hasonló azonban a Földön nem létezik....

Kevin J. Anderson - Az ​X-Akták - Zérópont
"Scully ​és Mulder odaállt a küszöbhöz és bebámult. Olyan volt, mintha gyújtóbomba robbant volna dr. Gregory laboratóriumában. A négy számítógép-terminál széle megolvadt és visszahajlott, a képernyők kancsalul bámultak, mint a halott szeme. Scully a túlsó falnál megpillantotta Gregory tetemét. Végtagjai összezsugorodtak a hőség okozta izomgörcsben: rovarirtóval leszórt, haláltusájában összerándult bogárra emlékeztetett." Ez volt az első eset. Ám hiába követte még vagy féltucat, a két FBI-ügynök, a megmagyarázhatatlan esetek, az X-akták szakértői nem találtak semmi összefüggést. Hacsak nem egy-egy maréknyi hamut, ami mindenhová a Távol-Keletről, levélben érkezett. Meg a tényt, hogy az áldozatok kapcsolatban álltak egy hajdani atomrobbantással. Vagy a legújabb, amelyet Amerika titokban akar végrehajtani a Csendes-óceánon, egy korallzátonyon. A Fényes Üllő nevűvel. Scully nem akar hinni a szellemekben, a természetfölötti erőkben. Mulder sem akar. Ám egy idő után kénytelen.

Kevin J. Anderson - Rebecca Moesta - Shadow ​Academy
The ​Dark Jedi Brakiss--the student Luke Skywalker expelled from his academy--has learned much since he left.

Ulic ​Qel-Droma has spent a lifetime learning to control the Force. He wanted to be on the side of the good, a member of the Jedi elite.

Brian Herbert - Kevin J. Anderson - Dune ​- The Machine Crusade
The ​breathtaking vision and incomparable storytelling of Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson's Dune: The Butlerian Jihad, a prequel to Frank Herbert's classic Dune, propelled it to the ranks of speculative fiction's classics in its own right. Now, with all the color, scope, and fascination of the prior novel, comes Dune: The Machine Crusade. . More than two decades have passed since the events chronicled in The Butlerian Jihad. The crusade against thinking robots has ground on for years, but the forces led by Serena Butler and Irbis Ginjo have made only slight gains; the human worlds grow weary of war, of the bloody, inconclusive swing from victory to defeat. The fearsome cymeks, led by Agamemnon, hatch new plots to regain their lost power from Omnius--as their numbers dwindle and time begins to run out. The fighters of Ginaz, led by Jool Noret, forge themselves into an elite warrior class, a weapon against the machine-dominated worlds. Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva are on the verge of the most important discovery in human history-a way to "fold" space and travel instantaneously to any place in the galaxy. And on the faraway, nearly worthless planet of Arrakis, Selim Wormrider and his band of outlaws take the first steps to making themselves the feared fighters who will change the course of history: the Fremen. Here is the unrivaled imaginative power that has put Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson on bestseller lists everywhere and earned them the high regard of readers around the globe. The fantastic saga of Dune continues in Dune: The Machine Crusade.

Kevin J. Anderson - Darksaber
Acclaimed ​author of the Jedi Academy trilogy, Kevin J. Anderson is back with a blockbuster novel, returning to Luke Skywalker's home planet of Tatooine. Luke returns home with Han Solo, hoping to make contact with Obi-Wan Kenobi. Instead, what they find is disturbing news: the Hutts, criminal warlords of the galaxy, are building a secret superweapon, a reconstruction of the original Death Star superlaser, to be called Darksaber.

Brian Herbert - Kevin J. Anderson - Hunters ​of Dune
Hunters ​of Dune and the concluding volume, Sandworms of Dune, bring together the great story lines and beloved characters in Frank Herbert's classic Dune universe, ranging from the time of the Butlerian Jihad to the original Dune series and beyond. Based directly on Frank Herbert's final outline, which lay hidden in a safe-deposit box for a decade, these two volumes will finally answer the urgent questions Dune fans have been debating for two decades. At the end of Chapterhouse: Dune--Frank Herbert's final novel--a ship carrying the ghola of Duncan Idaho, Sheeana (a young woman who can control sandworms), and a crew of various refugees escapes into the uncharted galaxy, fleeing from the monstrous Honored Matres, dark counterparts to the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood. The nearly invincible Honored Matres have swarmed into the known universe, driven from their home by a terrifying, mysterious Enemy. As designed by the creative genius of Frank Herbert, the primary story of Hunters and Sandworms is the exotic odyssey of Duncan's no-ship as it is forced to elude the diabolical traps set by the ferocious, unknown Enemy. To strengthen their forces, the fugitives have used genetic technology from Scytale, the last Tleilaxu Master, to revive key figures from Dune's past—including Paul Muad'Dib and his beloved Chani, Lady Jessica, Stilgar, Thufir Hawat, and even Dr. Wellington Yueh. Each of these characters will use their special talents to meet the challenges thrown at them. Failure is unthinkable--not only is their survival at stake, but they hold the fate of the entire human race in their hands.

Brian Herbert - Kevin J. Anderson - Paul ​of Dune
Frank ​Herbert's Dune ended with Paul Muad’Dib in control of the planet Dune. Herbert’s next Dune book, Dune Messiah, picked up the story several years later after Paul’s armies had conquered the galaxy. But what happened between Dune and Dune Messiah? How did Paul create his empire and become the Messiah? Following in the footsteps of Frank Herbert, New York Times bestselling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are answering these questions in Paul of Dune. The Muad’Dib’s jihad is in full swing. His warrior legions march from victory to victory. But beneath the joy of victory there are dangerous undercurrents. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies--those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands. . . . And Paul himself begins to have doubts: Is the jihad getting out of his control? Has he created anarchy? Has he been betrayed by those he loves and trusts the most? And most of all, he wonders: Am I going mad? Paul of Dune is a novel everyone will want to read and no one will be able to forget.
