Tim Lebbon könyvei a rukkolán


Tim Lebbon - Alien
Ellen Ripley, a Nostromo legénységének egyetlen életben maradt tagja az űrben sodródik… Egy peremvidéki bányabolygón, ahol a Weyland-Yutani társaság számára folyik az értékes érc kitermelése, a munkások rémülten próbálnak feljutni a bolygókörüli pályán keringő űrhajójukra, amit azonban nem sikerül elérniük. A hajón tartózkodók döbbenten látják a leszállóegységek kamerája által közvetített képeket: pókszerű lények tapadnak a munkások arcára. Ripley mentőkapszulája automatikusan bedokkol a bolygó irányába süllyedő hajóra. Amint magához tér a mélyálomból, a Nostromo katasztrófájának túlélője két ténnyel szembesül: harminchét évig sodródott az űrben, és a kis hajó komputerrendszerében jelen van az a mesterséges intelligencia, amely korábban az Ash nevű androidot irányította. Mielőtt a süllyedő hajó belépne a légkörbe, Ripley és társai kénytelenek látogatást tenni a bolygón, le kell menniük a bányába, ahol választ kapnak arra, hogyan érkeztek erre a helyre a rovarszerű szörnyek. Ripley tisztában van vele, hogy gyenge fegyvereikkel nem igazán védekezhetnek, azt azonban nem is sejti, hogy ha mégis sikerül visszajutniuk a hajóra, egy sokkal rafináltabb ellenség vár rájuk. Egy ellenség, amely nem foglalkozik mással, csak hogy végrehajtsa gazdái, a Weyland-Yutani által belé programozott feladatokat…

Tim Lebbon - The ​Silence
In ​the darkness of a underground cave, blind creatures hunt by sound. Then there is light, voices, and they feed...Swarming from their prison, the creatures thrive; to whisper is to summon death. As the hordes lay waste to Europe, a girl watches to see if they will cross the sea. Deaf for years, she knows how to live in silence; now, it is her family's only chance of survival. To leave their home, to shun others. But what kind of world will be left?

Tim Lebbon - Alien: ​Invázió
A ​Weyland-­Yutani kutatói évszázadokon át próbálták fegyverré változtatni az idegeneket, ám valakik megelőzték őket. Valakik, akik a yautják lakta űrön átgázolva prédává változtatják magukat a ragadozókat is... Az emberiséget érő elsöprő erejű támadás hatására az emberek példa nélküli lépésre szánják el magukat: szövetséget kötnek a ragadozókkal. De talán még a két faj egyesített ereje sem lesz elég ahhoz, hogy megállítsák a xenomorf ­seregeket, amelyek egyre mélyebbre hatolnak az Emberi Szférába... Ez a regény A Harag Háborúja-trilógia második része, a _Predator: Rajtaütés_ című kötet folytatása.

Christopher Golden - Tim Lebbon - Blood ​of the Four
The ​acclaimed authors of The Map of Moments and The Secret Journeys of Jack London join creative forces once more in this epic, standalone novel—an exciting dark fantasy of gods and mortals, fools and heroes, saviors and destroyers with a brilliant beam of hope at its core--that should more than appeal to readers of N.K. Jemisin and Brandon Sanderson. In the great kingdom of Quandis, everyone is a slave. Some are slaves to the gods. Most are slaves to everyone else. Blessed by the gods with lives of comfort and splendor, the royal elite routinely perform their duties, yet some chafe at their role. A young woman of stunning ambition, Princess Phela refuses to allow a few obstacles—including her mother the queen and her brother, the heir apparent—stand in the way of claiming ultimate power and glory for herself. Far below the royals are the Bajuman. Poor and oppressed, members of this wretched caste have but two paths out of servitude: the priesthood . . . or death. Because magic has been kept at bay in Quandis, royals and Bajuman have lived together in an uneasy peace for centuries. But Princess Phela’s desire for power will disrupt the realm’s order, setting into motion a series of events that will end with her becoming a goddess in her own right . . . or ultimately destroying Quandis and all its inhabitants.

Tim Lebbon - Alien ​- In den Schatten
Als ​Kind wurde Chris Hooper in seinen Träumen von Monstern verfolgt. In seiner Vorstellung lebten sie im Weltall.

Bis sich eines Tages ein Unfall ereignet – und etwas zum Leben erwacht, das tief in den Minen geschlummert hat. Die Hölle bricht los, und Chris Hoopers schlimmste Albträume holen ihn ein. Rettung naht durch Ellen Ripley, die letzte Überlebende des Raumschiffs Nostromo.

Tim Lebbon - Predator: ​Rajtaütés
Ragadozók ​hajói törnek be az emberlakta űrbe, a Weyland-Yutani Társaság pedig azonnal reagál a minden eddiginél nagyobb méretű fenyegetésre. Ezzel kezdetét veszi a Harag Háborúja. A Yautják véres rajtaütései nem maradhatnak – és nem is maradnak – megtorlatlanul, bár az ár, amit az emberiségnek ezért fizetnie kell, egyre magasabb. Johnny Mains hadnagy és tengerészgyalogos alakulata, az _Űrfecskék_ a harcok sűrűjében találják magukat. Nem is sejtik, hogy egy olyan ellenséggel kell szembenézniük, amihez foghatóval legrémesebb álmaikban sem találkoztak eddig... Ez a regény egy epikus trilógia első része, mely az _Alien: Invázió_ című kötettel folytatódik, s az _Alien vs. Predator: Armageddonban_ zárul le. Az univerzum ezek után már soha többé nem lesz ugyanaz...

A werewolf stalks the streets of Baltimore . . . A griffin slaughters a herd of horses in Madrid . . . Weird sightings of cryptozoological and mythological creatures abound around the globe.

Scars on the landscape. The occasional death. Then suddenly, the death toll escalates. One by one Hellboy and his friends at the BPRD are dispatched to avert disaster. Hellboy encounters a dragon in Brazil. Abe Sapien tackles a giant alligator in Venice. Liz Sherman faces off against a phoenix in the Mediterranean. But in dawning horror they realize it's all a distraction -- heralding nothing so much as an event of apocalyptic proportions . . .

But then one horrifying encounter left his superior officer—and lover—dead, along with many innocents. And Kel has been running ever since. But the worst was still to come. . . .

But when a mysterious island appears out to sea during a cataclysmic storm, sending tidal waves to smash the village, his Core training tells him to expect the worst. How can he warn the surviving villagers—especially the beautiful young witch Namior—that the visitors sailing in from the island may not be the peace-loving pilgrims they claim to be? That this might be the invasion the Core has feared all along . . . and that he, Kel Boon, may be Noreela’s last chance?

Tim Lebbon - Távoli ​csillagok
_“Tízezer ​éve tanulmányozzuk az Erőt... Küzdünk, hogy a világosság és a sötétség mindig egyensúlyban legyen. De most... most előkerült valami, ami talán mindnyájunkat megsemmisít. Egy férfi. És az álmai.”_ Lanoree Brockot az ősi Je’daii Rend legnagyobb mesterei ismertetik meg az Erő titkaival. Ám a testvére nem képes érzékelni az Erőt, és mind jobban eltávolodik a Rendtől, ami végül tragédiához vezet. Lanoree éveken át magányos Őrzőként szolgálja és védi a Tythan­ rendszer békéjét. Váratlanul a Je’daii Tanács elé idézik, ahol tudatják vele, hogy felbukkant egy fanatikus szekta, amelynek tagjai nem kisebb célt tűztek ki maguk elé, mint hogy elhagyják az ismert űrt. Ennek érdekében működésbe akarnak hozni egy hiperkaput, méghozzá a rettegett sötét anyag felhasználásával – és ezzel az egész rendszert elpusztító katasztrófát idézhetnek elő. Lanoree megdöbben, amikor megtudja, hogy a mesterek miért éppen tőle várják a megoldást. A szekta vezetője, a zseniális és őrült férfi, akit bármi áron meg kell állítania, nem más, mint a fivére, akit rég halottnak hisz – és akitől most már neki is félnie kell... _Tim Lebbon regényében a Jedi Rend hajnalába kalauzol el bennünket._

Tim Lebbon - Into ​the Void
NEW ​YORK TIMES BESTSELLER On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force—and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy. Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency. The leader of a fanatical cult, obsessed with traveling beyond the reaches of known space, is bent on opening a cosmic gateway using dreaded dark matter as the key—risking a cataclysmic reaction that will consume the entire star system. But more shocking to Lanoree than even the prospect of total galactic annihilation, is the decision of her Je’daii Masters to task her with the mission of preventing it. Until a staggering revelation makes clear why she was chosen: The brilliant, dangerous madman she must track down and stop at any cost is the brother whose death she has long grieved—and whose life she must now fear. Includes a special, full-color excerpt from the Dark Horse comic Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi and an original Dawn of the Jedi short story by John Ostrander!

Charlaine Harris - Christopher Golden - Jonathan Maberry - Kelley Armstrong - Kat Richardson - Seanan McGuire - Tim Lebbon - Cherie Priest - James A. Moore - Mark Morris - Indigo
Investigative ​reporter Nora Hesper spends her nights cloaked in shadows. As Indigo, she’s become an urban myth, a brutal vigilante who can forge darkness into weapons and travel across the city by slipping from one patch of shadow to another. Her primary focus both as Nora and as Indigo has become a murderous criminal cult called the Children of Phonos. Children are being murdered in New York, and Nora is determined to make it stop, even if that means Indigo must eliminate every member. But in the aftermath of a bloody battle, a dying cultist makes claims that cause Indigo to question her own origin and memories. Nora’s parents were killed when she was nineteen years old. She took the life insurance money and went off to explore the world, leading to her becoming a student of meditation and strange magic in a mountaintop monastery in Nepal…a history that many would realize sounds suspiciously like the origins of several comic book characters. As Nora starts to pick apart her memory, it begins to unravel. Her parents are dead, but the rest is a series of lies. Where did she get the power inside her? In a brilliant collaboration by New York Times and critically acclaimed coauthors Charlaine Harris, Christopher Golden, Kelley Armstrong, Jonathan Maberry, Kat Richardson, Seanan McGuire, Tim Lebbon, Cherie Priest, James Moore, and Mark Morris join forces to bring you a crime-solving novel like you’ve never read before.
