Amie Kaufman - This Shattered World
Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met. Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet's rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents. Rebellion is in Flynn's blood. Terraforming corporations make their fortune by recruiting colonists to make the inhospitable planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion. Desperate for any advantage in a bloody and unrelentingly war, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape the rebel base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war.

Trapped ​aboard the Undying's ancient spaceship and reeling from what they've learned there, scavenger Mia and academic Jules are plunged into a desperate race to warn their home planet of the danger humanity's greed has unleashed. From the mountains of Spain to the streets of Prague, the sequel to Unearthed is a white-knuckle ride that will send readers hurtling back to earth, and leave them breathless until the last page.

Amie Kaufman - Meagan Spooner - Unearthed
When ​Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying's advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered. For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study... as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don't loot everything first. Mia and Jules' different reasons for smuggling themselves onto Gaia put them immediately at odds, but after escaping a dangerous confrontation with other scavvers, they form a fragile alliance. In order to penetrate the Undying temple and reach the tech and information hidden within, the two must decode the ancient race's secrets and survive their traps. But the more they learn about the Undying, the more their presence in the temple seems to be part of a grand design that could spell the end of the human race...

Amie Kaufman - Meagan Spooner - Fărâme ​de şoapte
Al ​doilea volum al Trilogiei Constelaţii Fărâme de şoapte aduce în scenă o pereche de îndrăgostiţi aflaţi în taberele adverse ale unui război sângeros. Jubilee Chase şi Flynn Cormac n-ar fi trebuit să se întâlnească niciodată. Lee este căpitan şi face parte din forţele trimise pe Avon să-i supună pe coloniştii rebeli ai acestei planete terraformate. Flynn conduce revolta împotriva corporaţiilor care nu şi-au respectat promisiunea de a transforma planetele ospitaliere în unele pe care se poate trăi. Încercând cu disperare să-şi asigure un avantaj cât de mic într-un război nemilos, Flynn face singurul lucru care pare să aibă sens atunci când el şi Lee îşi încrucişează cărările: se întoarce la bază, luând-o prizonieră. Dar în timp ce tovaraşii lui se pregătesc s-o execute pe această fată dură, cu nervi de oţel, Flynn face o altă alegere, care îl va schimba pentru totdeauna. Lumea fantastică pe care o imaginează autoarele, talentul lor de a îmbina teme originale şi familiare, de a susţine două voci într-o poveste presărată cu romantism şi tensiune – toate promit, în a treia parte a trilogiei, o altă lume, o altă aventură şi, dacă avem noroc, un alt cuplu de îndrăgostiţi. – Booklist Acest science-fiction accesibil ne oferă conflicte autentice, conspiraţii de tot felul şi o analiză surprinzătoare a noţiunii de vină. – Kirkus Reviews Nici nu-mi amintesc cum am ajuns la mine. Dar brusc mă pomenesc în camera mea, ameţită de gânduri, cu pielea înfiorată. Mă pregătesc de culcare cu destulă uşurinţă, având în sânge acest ritual după atâţia ani în care m-am simţit extrem de obosită la sfârşitul unei zile pentru a mai face şi altceva. Nu trebuie să mă mai gândesc, nu trebuie să mai rămân în această stare teribilă în care simt cum adrenalina îmi pompează prin vene. Nu trebuie să mai rememorez cele întâmplate cu Flynn. Nu trebuie să mă îndrăgostesc de un băiat care reprezintă toate lucrurile împotriva cărora am luptat de când aveam opt ani. Dar pentru că nu mă pot opri să fac toate astea, măcar pot să nu-l mai ating vreodată.

A ​year ago, Flynn Cormac and Jubilee Chase made the now infamous Avon Broadcast, calling on the galaxy to witness for their planet, and protect them from destruction. Some say Flynn’s a madman, others whisper about conspiracies. Nobody knows the truth. A year before that, Tarver Merendsen and Lilac LaRoux were rescued from a terrible shipwreck - now, they live a public life in front of the cameras, and a secret life away from the world’s gaze. Now, in the center of the universe on the planet of Corinth, all four are about to collide with two new players, who will bring the fight against LaRoux Industries to a head. Gideon Marchant is an eighteen-year-old computer hacker - a whiz kid and an urban warrior. He’ll climb, abseil and worm his way past the best security measures to pull off onsite hacks that others don’t dare touch. Sofia Quinn has a killer smile, and by the time you’re done noticing it, she’s got you offering up your wallet, your car, and anything else she desires. She holds LaRoux Industries responsible for the mysterious death of her father and is out for revenge at any cost. When a LaRoux Industries security breach interrupts Gideon and Sofia’s separate attempts to infiltrate their headquarters, they’re forced to work together to escape. Each of them has their own reason for wanting to take down LaRoux Industries, and neither trusts the other. But working together might be the best chance they have to expose the secrets LRI is so desperate to hide.

Amie Kaufman - Jay Kristoff - Illuminae ​(angol)
This ​morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded. The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit. But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again. Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

Amie Kaufman - Jay Kristoff - Gemina
The ​highly anticipated sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller that critics are calling “out-of-this-world awesome.” Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed. The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault. Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion. When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands. But relax. They’ve totally got this. They hope. Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.

The first in a trilogy, THESE BROKEN STARS sets into motion a series of timeless, standalone love stories that span galaxies—and are linked by their shared worlds and one mysterious enemy.

Amie Kaufman - Meagan Spooner - This ​Shattered World - Meggyötört világ
Lee ​Chase százados és Flynn Cormac küzdelme az Avon megmentéséért. Jubilee Chase-nek és Flynn Cormacnek sosem kellett volna találkoznia. Lee százados az Avonra küldött seregben szolgál, melynek meg kell fékeznie a terraformált bolygó lázadó telepeseit; de megvan rá az oka, hogy gyűlölje a felkelőket. Flynn ereiben lázadók vére csörgedez. A nővére az Avont vasfegyelemmel irányító, hatalmas vállalatcsoport elleni felkelés során halt meg. Ezek a vállalatok vagyonokat keresnek azzal, hogy lakatlan bolygókat terraformálnak az univerzumban, majd telepeseket bíznak meg, hogy tegyék élhetővé azokat, miközben azt ígérik nekik, hogy a gyerekeik már jobb körülmények között fognak élni. De az Avon esetében nem állták a szavukat, és évtizedekkel később Flynn vezeti a felkelést. Flynn elkeseredetten próbál bármiféle előnyre szert tenni az otthonát elfoglaló hadsereggel szemben, így amikor összetalálkozik Lee-vel, az egyetlen, ésszerűnek tűnő lépés mellett dönt: fogolyként magával viszi a lányt a rejtekhelyükre. De miközben a többi lázadó arra készül, hogy kivégezze a csípős nyelvű, ám acélidegekkel bíró Lee-t, Flynn újabb döntést hoz, ami örökre megváltoztatja: együtt megszöknek a bázisról, és így két tűz közé kerülnek egy értelmetlen háborúban. A Starbound-trilógia lenyűgöző második kötetében egy szerelemről és megbocsájtásról szóló, felejthetetlen történetet követhetünk végig egy háború szaggatta világban. Az Avon fiatal bolygó, ám az utóbbi néhány évtizedben a kolonizációs erőfeszítések megtorpantak rajta, többek között azért, mert a bolygó fölött állandóan felhős az ég. A helyiek szerint az Avon fejlődését irányító vállalat nem szeretné, hogy az Avon teljes körű politikai jogokra tegyen szert, ezért húzza az időt a problémák megoldásában. Jubilee Chase-t az avoni katonák Lee Chase századosként ismerik. A százados nem ismer lehetetlent. Tiszteli a katonáit, de a maximumot követeli tőlük. A lázadók szemében hideg szívű, lelketlen gyilkos. Amikor Flynn Cormac elrabolja, mindkettejük élete örökre megváltozik. Szerelem és küzdelem az Avon jövőjéért a bolygón kitörni készülő háború árnyékában.

Amie Kaufman - Meagan Spooner - These ​Broken Stars - Lehullott csillagok
A ​bizakodásról és túlélésről szóló, időtlen szerelmi történet. Éld át a reményt! Az Icarus fedélzetén ez az éjszaka is olyan, mint a többi. De hirtelen katasztrófa történik: valami kirántja a hiperűrből a hatalmas luxusűrhajót, és az a legközelebbi bolygóra zuhan. Csak Lilac LaRoux és Tarver Merendsen éli túl a katasztrófát, és úgy tűnik, hogy rajtuk kívül senki más nincs a bolygón. Lilac az univerzum leggazdagabb emberének lánya, Tarver viszont a nincstelenségből indult. Fiatal kora ellenére már kitüntetett háborús hős, aki régen megtanulta, hogy a Lilac-féle lányok csak bajt hoznak ez ember fejére. De mivel csak egymásra számíthatnak, muszáj együttműködniük, hogy átjussanak a kísérteties vidéken, melyen túl talán segítséget remélhetnek. És egyszer csak a körülmények dacára Lilac és Tarver ráébred, hogy furcsamód mégis volt valami haszna annak a tragédiának, ami egymáshoz sodorta őket. Mivel a hétköznapi életükben nem lehet közös jövőjük, azon kezdenek el töprengeni, hogy vajon nem lenne-e jobb örökre a bolygón maradni? Minden megváltozik, amikor rájönnek, hogy mi a titka a lépteiket kísérő, hátborzongató suttogásnak. Lilac és Tarver talán elhagyhatja ezt a bolygót, de azt biztos, hogy már nem lesznek ugyanazok, akik korábban voltak. "Egyszerűen csodálatos!
