Déjate cautivar por un mundo mítico de pavor y asombro, palomillas y pesadillas, amor y exterminio. Bienvenido a Weep. Finalista del premio Michael L. Printz 2018 por Mejor Novela Young Adult. Podrán quitarte tu casa, tu familia, incluso tu nombre, pero nunca lograrán despojarte de tus sueños. Aquello era imposible, por supuesto. Pero... ¿cuándo en la vida eso ha detenido a un soñador en la búsqueda de su sueño? El sueño elige al soñador, y no al revés, y Lazlo Strange, huérfano de guerra y aprendiz de bibliotecario, ha temido siempre que su sueño eligiera mal. Desde los 5 años ha estado obsesionado con la mítica ciudad perdida de Weep, pero sería preciso alguien más audaz y valiente que él para cruzar medio mundo en su busca. Entonces se le presenta una asombrosa oportunidad en la persona de un héroe llamado Godslayer y una pandilla de legendarios guerreros, así que Lazlo ha de aprovechar su oportunidad o perderá su sueño para siempre. ¿Qué habrá pasado en Weep hace doscientos años para que fuera aislada del resto del mundo? ¿A quién mató exactamente el esbirro Godslayer en el nombre de dios? ¿Y cuál es el misterioso problema que ahora intenta resolver buscando ayuda? Las respuestas esperan en Weep, igual que algunos otros misterios, como aquella diosa de piel azulada que se le aparece a Lazlo en sueños. ¿Cómo es que la ha soñado aun antes de saber siquiera de su existencia? Y si todos los dioses están muertos, ¿por qué ella parece tan real? En esta imponente novela de gran alcance, la sombra del pasado es tan real como los fantasmas que merodean en la ciudadela de los dioses aniquilados.

What power can bruise the sky? Two worlds are poised on the brink of a vicious war. By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera's rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her. When the brutal angel emperor brings his army to the human world, Karou and Akiva are finally reunited--not in love, but in tentative alliance against their common enemy. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves. But with even bigger threats on the horizon, are Karou and Akiva strong enough to stand among the gods and monsters? The New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy comes to a stunning conclusion as--from the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond--humans, chimaera, and seraphim strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.

Supreme Commander Lord Tanaros was once human. But he chose darkness and immortality when his wife betrayed him with his king. He killed them both, and fled the realms of Men and now cares nothing for their fates. A thousand years passed. His only allegiance is to his master, the dark god Satoris, who gave the gift of Life to the race of Men. Satoris, who rebelled against his elder brother God Haomane who had demanded that gift be taken away. Their fight cracked the very world in two; the name of Satoris became the word for evil throughout all the races, while the legend of Tanaros is the seminal tale of treachery. And yet not all tales told are true. A final prophecy has begun to unfold, and the races are uniting in their quest to rid the world of Satoris. The elder gods and goddesses, stranded on the other side of the world, send dreams to spur all to destroy Satoris and Tanaros, but those loyal to their god know a different side of the story and try to defend their citadel of Darkhaven, where Satoris sits in sorrow, controlling his own dominion, seeking neither victory nor vengeance. Satoris's followers capture the beautiful Elvish princess Cerelinde, and without her the Allies cannot fulfill the prophecy. All who support Satoris clamor for her death-but Satoris refuses to act like the monster that he is made out to be, for he recognizes in Cerelinde a spark of the love that he once bore for his fellow gods. She is a great danger to Satoris--and a greater danger for Tanaros and all that he holds dear. For she reminds him that not all women need be false... and that though he may be immune to death, his heart is still very much mortal. Strong storytelling with evocative, compelling, and unforgettable characters, Godslayer is the thrilling conclusion to the events begun in Banewreaker, a haunting tale of love and loss that ultimately asks the question: If all that is considered good considers you evil, are you?

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages--not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out. When one of the strangers--beautiful, haunted Akiva--fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

Lexi didn't set out to steal a god's ring, but when a magic artifact starts trying to talk to you, what's a girl supposed to do? She's always had the ability to talk to animals, but this new development amps up the crazy. Now she's afraid her power is out of control and she's losing her mind. The only person who could possibly reassure her that she's not going mad is her mother, who has always refused to discuss the source of Lexi's strange ability. Now that the jewellery is getting chatty, maybe she'll finally spill the beans. Unfortunately, going home means a trip back to the human territories, and Lexi only just made it out of there alive last time. She's hoping for a quick visit, but with a god hellbent on retrieving the ring and a fireshaper she might have accidentally betrayed on her tail, life is about to get horribly complicated--for her and everyone she cares about.

But when a devil escapes from a bottle sealed by the ancient Djinn King himself- the creator of the world- she may be in over her head.
