<p><b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER </b><br /><b></b><b></b><br /><b>A stunning new novel from the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Nora Roberts—<i>Year One</i> is an epic of hope and horror, chaos and magick, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives…</b><br /><b></b><br />It began on New Year’s Eve.</p><p>The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.</p><p>Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magick rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most. </p><p>As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.</p><p>In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.</p><p>The end has come. The beginning comes next.</p>

<b>Humanity’s complex relationship with technology spirals out of control in this first book of an all-new series from “the owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction” (Ken Follett).</b><br /> <b> </b><br /> In the year 2204, humanity is expanding into the wider galaxy in leaps and bounds. Cutting-edge technology of linked jump gates has rendered most forms of transportation—including starships—virtually obsolete. Every place on Earth, every distant planet humankind has settled, is now merely a step away from any other. All seems wonderful—until a crashed alien spaceship of unknown origin is found on a newly located world eighty-nine light-years from Earth, carrying a cargo as strange as it is horrifying. To assess the potential of the threat, a high-powered team is dispatched to investigate.  But one of them may not be all they seem. . . .<br /><br /> Bursting with tension and big ideas, Peter F. Hamilton’s <i>Salvation</i> is the first book of an all-new series that highlights the inventiveness of an author at the top of his game.<br /><b><br />Praise for <i>Salvation</i></b><br /><br />“Dynamic, multifaceted characters, strong mind-expanding concepts, and impressive flair for language [make <i>Salvation</i> a] rare celestial event. . . . One of Britain’s bestselling sci-fi authors has launched an addictive new book as the initial stage of what is sure to be an intriguing new series called the Salvation Sequence.”<b>—<i>SyFyWire</i></b><br /><br /> “Peter F. Hamilton is known as one of the world’s greatest sci-fi writers for a reason. . . . <i>Salvation </i>is well worth the effort and a great introduction to some good old-fashioned space opera.”<b>—Fantasy Book Review</b><br /> <b> </b><br /> “Packs a teeth-rattling wallop . . . Hamilton expertly keeps his audience coming back for more.”<b>—<i>Kirkus Reviews</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “An engaging collection of tales.”<b>—<i>Booklist</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “Exciting, wildly imaginative and quite possibly Hamilton’s best book to date.”<b>—<i>SFX</i></b><br /><br />“Peter F. Hamilton smashes through the crazy battlefield of space opera like a giant all-conquering war-robot. His newest is loud, proud, and beyond epic. Accept no substitutes, this is the real deal. You need <i>Salvation,</i> my friend. Everyone needs salvation.”<b>—Ian McDonald</b><br /><br />“No one offers action-packed, meticulous, suspenseful, and consistent high-tech futures better than Peter Hamilton, and <i>Salvation</i> cranks all of that up five notches.”<b>—David Brin</b>

Book 1 of the Zone War series.<br /><br />A few short years from now, eco-terrorists unleash the worst attack the world has ever seen. Over 25,000 autonomous combat drones are released in Manhattan from the hold of a ship. Hundreds of thousands are dead, and the entire island is evacuated and quarantined in just a few days’ time.<br /><br />Ten years later, Manhattan is still empty of humans, with the exception of the salvage specialists of the most watched reality show in history: Zone War. Produced live and unedited, the show follows five teams of armored vehicle specialists who brave the active drones to recover lost riches and collect bounties on dead ones. Ram it, slam it, grab the goods and bull your way back out. And don’t break down, because no one will be coming to your aid. Armored entry is the way to go… Unless…<br /><br />Meet Ajaya “AJ” Gurung, sniper’s son, drone technician and Zone infiltrator. Following his father’s footsteps while forging ahead in ways all his own, AJ has the potential to be the most successful recovery specialist of all time. The drones are changing, the rules have been thrown out and nothing about the Zone is what it seems. Adapt or die.<br />

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER<b> • <b>Pierce Brown’s relentlessly entertaining debut channels the excitement of <i>The Hunger Games</i> by Suzanne Collins and <i>Ender’s Game </i>by Orson Scott Card.</b></b></b><br /><br /><b>“Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow.”—Scott Sigler</b><br /><b><b><br />NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY <i>ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, BUZZFEED, </i>AND <i>SHELF AWARENESS</i></b></b><br /><i><br />“I live for the dream that my children will be born free,” she says. “That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.”<br /> “I live for you,” I say sadly.<br /> Eo kisses my cheek. “Then you must live for more.”</i><br />  <br />Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children.<br /><br /> But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and lush wilds spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.<br /><br /> Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power.  He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.<br /><br /><b>BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Pierce Brown's <i>Golden Son.</i></b><br /><br />“[A] spectacular adventure . . . one heart-pounding ride . . .

<b>Now a Hulu Original Series</b><br /><br /><i>The Handmaid's Tale</i> is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its images and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for the women and men in its population.<br /><br /> The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate Handmaids under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishment’s calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions. <i>The Handmaid's Tale </i>is funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and a tour de force. It is Margaret Atwood at her best.
