Wesley Chu - The ​Lives of Tao
When ​out-of-shape IT technician Roen woke up and started hearing voices in his head, he naturally assumed he was losing it. He wasn’t. He now has a passenger in his brain – an ancient alien life-form called Tao, whose race crash-landed on Earth before the first fish crawled out of the oceans. Now split into two opposing factions – the peace-loving, but under-represented Prophus, and the savage, powerful Genjix – the aliens have been in a state of civil war for centuries. Both sides are searching for a way off-planet, and the Genjix will sacrifice the entire human race, if that’s what it takes. Meanwhile, Roen is having to train to be the ultimate secret agent. Like that’s going to end up well…

Wesley Chu - The ​Deaths of Tao
The ​Prophus and the Genjix are at war. For centuries they have sought a way off-planet, guiding humanity’s social and technological development to the stage where space travel is possible. The end is now in sight, and both factions have plans to leave the Earth, but the Genjix method will mean the destruction of the human race. That’s a price they’re willing to pay. It’s up to Roen and Tao to save the world. Oh, dear…

Wesley Chu - The ​Rise of Io
Ella ​Patel – thief, con-artist and smuggler – is in the wrong place at the wrong time. One night, on the border of a demilitarized zone run by the body-swapping alien invaders, she happens upon a man and woman being chased by a group of assailants. The man freezes, leaving the woman to fight off five attackers at once, before succumbing. As she dies, to both Ella and the man’s surprise, the sparkling light that rises from the woman enters Ella, instead of the man. She soon realizes she’s been inhabited by Io, a low-ranking Quasing who was involved in some of the worst decisions in history. Now Ella must now help the alien presence to complete her mission and investigate a rash of murders in the border states that maintain the frail peace. With the Prophus assigned to help her seemingly wanting to stab her in the back, and the enemy Genjix hunting her, Ella must also deal with Io’s annoying inferiority complex. To top it all off, Ella thinks the damn alien voice in her head is trying to get her killed. And if you can’t trust the voices in your head, who can you trust?

Wesley Chu - Időrabló
"Wesley ​Chu időutazással, erőtér-kungfuval és hatalmas adagnyi szellemességgel nagy oktánszámú szórakozássá varázsolja át a sivár apokalipszist." Max Gladstone, a _Nagyrészt halott_ című regény szerzője A Föld a 25. században egy mérgező, elhagyatott világ, lakossága a túlélés érdekében a külső Naprendszerbe menekült, ahol gyengén, halálra ítélve tengődik idegen bolygókon és azok holdjai közt. Az emberiség fennmaradásának kulcsa az időutazás, azonban a történelem legveszélyesebb feladatainak elvégzésére egyre kevesebben képesek. James Griffin-Mars kronoember, küldetéseket vállal a Föld múltjába, hogy ritka technológiai eszközöket szerezzen az idővonal megváltoztatása nélkül. A legtöbb kronoember nem éli meg az öregkort; az időugrásokkal járó stressz a személyes és jövőbeli kockázatokkal vegyítve felőröl mindenkit. A nyugdíjazását bebiztosító, utolsó bevetésén James megismeri Elise Kimet, egy korábbi évszázadból származó tudóst, akinek a végzete szerint meg kellene halnia egy óceánba épített szerkezet megsemmisülése során. James a kronoemberek legfontosabb törvényét megszegve a küldetés teljesítésén túl megmenti a nőt, és visszahozza magával a jövőbe. Ezzel pedig nem csak magukat sodorja végérvényesen veszélybe, hanem az egész emberiséget. Wesley Chu műve lendületes kalandregény és elgondolkodtató sci-fi egyszerre, ami klasszikus témájával és eredeti ötleteivel méltó módon tiszteleg a műfaj előtt.

Wesley Chu - Time ​Salvager
Convicted ​criminal James Griffin-Mars is no one’s hero. In his time, Earth is a toxic, abandoned world and humans have fled into the outer solar system to survive, eking out a fragile, doomed existence among the other planets and their moons. Those responsible for delaying humanity’s demise believe time travel holds the key, and they have identified James, troubled though he is, as one of a select and expendable few ideally suited for the most dangerous job in history. James is a chronman, undertaking missions into Earth's past to recover resources and treasure without altering the timeline. The laws governing use of time travel are absolute; break any one of them and, one way or another, your life is over. Most chronmen never reach old age; the stress of each jump through time, compounded by the risk to themselves and to the future, means that many chronmen rapidly reach their breaking point, and James Griffin-Mars is nearing his. On a final mission that is to secure his retirement, James meets Elise Kim, an intriguing scientist from a previous century, who is fated to die during the destruction of an oceanic rig. Against his training and his common sense, and in violation of the chronmen’s highest law, James brings Elise back to the future with him, saving her life, but turning them both into fugitives. Remaining free means losing themselves in the wild and poisonous wastes of Earth, somehow finding allies, and perhaps discovering what hope may yet remain for humanity's home world.

Cassandra Clare - Wesley Chu - La ​mano scarlatta
«Ultimamente ​abbiamo combattuto una grande guerra che ha evitato la catastrofe a tutto il genere umano. Alec ha perduto suo fratello e io il mio amico, e tutti e due abbiamo veramente bisogno di staccare. Voglio fare qualcosa di carino per lui, e insieme a lui. Voglio prendere le distanze dal casino che sono le nostre esistenze e capire se riusciamo a trovare un modo per stare davvero insieme.» Tutto ciò che desiderava Magnus Bane era una vacanza. Un sontuoso e romantico viaggio per tutta Europa insieme ad Alec Lightwood, lo Shadowhunter che, contro ogni previsione, è diventato finalmente il suo compagno. All'affascinante ed enigmatico stregone non sembra di chiedere poi molto. Ma a pochi giorni dal loro arrivo a Parigi, la coppia viene raggiunta da una vecchia amica che porta loro notizie inquietanti. A quanto pare un culto demoniaco chiamato La Mano Scarlatta sta seminando il caos in tutto il mondo. Un culto che, da quel che si dice in giro, è stato Magnus stesso a fondare, tantissimi anni prima, per scherzo. Ora però ha un nuovo leader, che l'ha trasformato completamente e che sta compiendo una massiccia opera di reclutamento. A questo punto, Magnus e Alec sono costretti a scapicollarsi da una parte all'altra dell'Europa per scovare La Mano Scarlatta e il suo capo, sfuggente a dir poco, prima che possano causare ulteriori, e irreparabili, danni. Via via che la loro ricerca di risposte diventerà sempre più pressante, saranno costretti a fidarsi l'uno dell'altro più di quanto non abbiano mai fatto prima, anche se ciò significherà rivelare i loro segreti più nascosti. Un nuovo sguardo sul multiforme e straordinario mondo Shadowhunters con protagonista uno dei personaggi più amati.
