Adam Christopher könyvei a rukkolán


Adam Christopher - Dishonored ​- A képmások ura
A ​többszörös díjnyertes dark fantasy videojáték különleges világa regényben is életre kel! Emily Kaldwin császárnő kettős életet él Dunwallban: az uralkodói teendői mellett apja, Corvo Attano képzi a lopakodás, harc és orgyilkosság művészetében. A birodalom ismét sötét idők elé néz: nemrég egy titokzatos férfi érkezett a városba, és a Bálnavadászok élére állt, méghozzá olyan képességek birtokában, melyeknek a létezése már éppen kezdett feledésbe merülni. Emily és Corvo életre-halálra folyó hajszába veti magát: ha nem lebbentik fel a fátylat rejtélyes ellenségükről, akkor minden igyekezetük dacára bekövetkezik az elkerülhetetlen pusztulás. Az első Dishonored videojáték 2012-ben jelent meg, és egy olyan kitalált viktoriánus kori világban játszódik, amiben egyaránt létezik a mágia és a technológia, játékosok milliót ejtve rabul. Az elnyomó rendszer és a vele járó korrupció, a bálnazsírral való fekete kereskedelem az ipari negyedben, a patkányok által terjesztett halálos betegségek, valamint a különleges birodalmi katonák, fedőszervezetek és aktivisták rendkívüli élettel töltik meg ezt a világot, amely immár regény formájában is elkápráztatja a rajongókat.

Ray might have taken up a new line of work, but money is money, after all, and he was programmed to make a profit. Besides, with his twenty-four-hour memory-tape limits, he sure can keep a secret. When a familiar-looking woman arrives at the agency wanting to hire Ray to find a missing movie star, he's inclined to tell her to take a hike. But she had the cold hard cash, a demand for total anonymity, and tendency to vanish on her own.
