Claire North - Harry ​August csodálatos élete
Harry ​August a halálos ágyán fekszik. Már megint. Bármit tesz, bárhogy dönt, ha eljön a halál, Harry mindig visszatér oda, ahonnan elindult: újra gyerek lesz, de olyan gyerek, akinek birtokában van az immár jó néhányszor leélt életére vonatkozó összes tudás. E téren soha nem változik semmi. Egészen mostanáig. Ugyanis a tizenegyedik élete végéhez közeledő Harry ágya mellett fölbukkan egy kislány: „Kis híján lekéstem magát, dr. August” – mondja. „Küldenem kell egy üzenetet.” A könyv annak történetét meséli el, hogy mit tesz Harry ez után, mit tett előtte, és hogyan próbálja megmenteni a múltat, amelyen nem változtathat, illetve a jövőt, amelyet nem hagyhat bekövetkezni.

Claire North - Touch
Kepler ​had never meant to die this way — viciously beaten to death by a stinking vagrant in a dark back alley. But when reaching out to the murderer for salvation in those last dying moments, a sudden switch takes place. Now Kepler is looking out through the eyes of the killer himself, staring down at a broken and ruined body lying in the dirt of the alley. Instead of dying, Kepler has gained the ability to roam from one body to another, to jump into another person’s skin and see through their eyes, live their life -- be it for a few minutes, a few months or a lifetime. Kepler means these host bodies no harm — and even comes to cherish them intimately like lovers. But when one host, Josephine Cebula, is brutally assassinated, Kepler embarks on a mission to seek the truth — and avenge Josephine’s death

Claire North - The ​First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
Harry ​August is on his deathbed. Again. Every time Harry dies, he is reborn in exactly the same time and place, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen times before. No matter what he does or the decisions he makes, when death comes, Harry always returns to where he began, and nothing ever changes. He only knows that there are others like him, living with but apart from the rest of us. As Harry nears the end of his eleventh life, a little girl appears at his bedside. 'I nearly missed you, Doctor August,' she says. 'I need to send a message. It has come down from child to adult, child to adult, passed back through generations from a thousand years forward in time. The message is that the world is ending, and we cannot prevent it. So now it's up to you.' This is the story of what Harry August does next - and what he did before - and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow.
