Als der Wissenschaftler Lyle Fontanelle im Auftrag der Kosmetikfirma NewYew die neue Hautcreme ReBirth entwickelt, ahnt er nicht, was fur eine Katastrophe er damit auslost. Erst als Testpersonen merkwurdige Symptome aufweisen, erkennt er, dass etwas gehorig schiefgelaufen ist: Denn statt Hautzellen nachhaltig zu regenerieren, uberschreibt ReBirth die DNA der Nutzer - und macht sie zu Klonen anderer Personen. Geblendet von Gier, bringt NewYew das Produkt dennoch auf den Markt und kann die verheerenden weltweiten Konsequenzen nicht mehr aufhalten. Denn jeder will ReBirth fur seine Zwecke nutzen. Nicht zuletzt konnte die Creme als gefahrliche Waffe missbraucht werden ...

From Dan Wells, author of the New York Times bestselling Partials Sequence and the John Cleaver series, comes the second book in a dark, pulse-pounding sci-fi-noir series set in 2050 Los Angeles. Overworld. It's more than just the world's most popular e-sport-for thousands of VR teams around the globe, Overworld is life. It means fame and fortune, or maybe it's a ticket out of obscurity or poverty. If you have a connection to the internet and four friends you trust with your life, anything is possible. Marisa Carneseca is on the hunt for a mysterious hacker named Grendel when she receives word that her amateur Overworld team has been invited to Forward Motion, one of the most exclusive tournaments of the year. For Marisa, this could mean anything-a chance to finally go pro and to help her family, stuck in an LA neighborhood on the wrong side of the growing divide between the rich and the poor. But Forward Motion turns out to be more than it seems-rife with corruption, infighting, and danger-and Marisa runs headlong into Alain Bensoussan, a beautiful, dangerous underground freedom fighter who reveals to her the darker side of the forces behind the tournament. It soon becomes clear that, in this game, winning might be the only way to get out alive.

From Dan Wells, author of the New York Times bestselling Partials Sequence, comes the third installment in a thrilling sci-fi noir series set in 2050 Los Angeles. Even in a world where technology connects everyone's minds, it would seem that some secrets can still remain hidden. For all the mysteries teen hacker Marisa Carneseca has solved, one has always eluded her: When she was two years old, she was in a car accident in which she lost her arm and a mob boss's wife, Zenaida de Maldonado, lost her life. No one can tell her what she was doing in that car, or how it led to the feud between the Carnesecas and the Maldonados. The secrets from the past rise violently to the surface when Zenaida's freshly severed hand shows up at the scene of a gangland shooting. If Zenaida is-or was-still alive, it means there's even more about Marisa's past that she doesn't know. And when everyone from Los Angeles gangs to the world's largest genetic engineering firms becomes involved in the case, it's clear there's more happening under the surface than anyone cares to admit. The truth is out there, and Marisa will have to thread together lost friends, corporate assassins, a gang lord's digital brain, and what might be a literal ghost from the past in order to find it.

Author: Dan Wells Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 23/02/2017

Bluescreen is a stunning deluge of imagination, filled with suspense and twists and unforgettable characters. This book is just plain awesome. -James Dashner, bestselling author of The Maze Runner From Dan Wells, author of the New York Times bestselling Partials Sequence, comes the first book in a new sci-fi-noir series. Los Angeles in 2050 is a city of open doors, as long as you have the right connections. That connection is a djinni-a smart device implanted right in a person's head. In a world where virtually everyone is online twenty-four hours a day, this connection is like oxygen-and a world like that presents plenty of opportunities for someone who knows how to manipulate it. Marisa Carneseca is one of those people. She might spend her days in Mirador, but she lives on the net-going to school, playing games, hanging out, or doing things of more questionable legality with her friends Sahara and Anja. And it's Anja who first gets her hands on Bluescreen-a virtual drug that plugs right into a person's djinni and delivers a massive, nonchemical, completely safe high. But in this city, when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is, and Mari and her friends soon find themselves in the middle of a conspiracy that is much bigger than they ever suspected.
