    Un danger mortel vous guette au détour de chaque couloir !
    " J'ouvre les yeux dans le noir. Le noir total. J'entends ma propre respiration, mais rien d'autre. Je soulève la tête - elle bute sur une surface solide, qui ne bouge pas d'un pouce. Il y a un mur juste devant mon visage. Non, pas un mur... un couvercle. "
    Em se réveille dans les ténèbres, seule, entravée dans un espace confiné qui ressemble à un sarcophage. Elle sait que c'est le jour de son anniversaire mais... c'est tout. Elle ne se rappelle ni son nom, ni ce qu'elle a fait la veille, ni le visage de ses parents. Elle n'y comprend absolument rien. Lorsqu'elle parvient, à force de volonté, à se libérer de ce piège, elle découvre, autour d'elle, onze autres cercueils, dont certains occupants sont encore en vie. Une initiale et un nom de famille sont gravés sur chaque sarcophage.
    La jeune fille prend la tête du petit groupe d'adolescents - qui pensent tous avoir douze ans, mais qui en paraissent plutôt dix-sept - et découvre un labyrinthe de couloirs poussiéreux, constellés par endroits d'ossements. Se trouvent-ils sous terre ? Y a-t-il d'autres survivants ? Comment trouver eau et nourriture ? Et surtout : qui sont-ils, quels sont ces étranges symboles qui marquent leur front, comment se sont-ils donc retrouvés là ?
    Le nouveau thriller fantastique de Scott Sigler prend le lecteur à la gorge dès la première ligne : rivalités, personnalités qui s'affrontent, machination qui se joue sans qu'ils le sachent... nos jeunes amnésiques se débattent pour sortir d'un piège dont ils ignorent tout. Un auteur à la maestria reconnue, régulièrement classé dans les listes des meilleures ventes du New York Times, tisse un suspense impitoyable, à mi-chemin entre Le Labyrinthe et Sa Majesté des mouches.

    L'ennemi n'est pas toujours celui qu'on croit : et si la pire menace venait de l'intérieur ?
    " Si c'est la guerre qu'ils veulent, ils l'auront. Ils auraient dû réfléchir avant de s'attaquer à nous. "
    Échappés de leurs cercueils, M. Savage, surnommée Em, et ses compagnons ont parcouru des kilomètres de couloirs envahis d'ossements, affronté la faim et la soif, combattu un redoutable ennemi, les Adultes, avant de pouvoir enfin sortir du piège dont ils étaient prisonniers. Mais arrivés sur Omeyocan, le monde qui leur est destiné, les jeunes survivants déchantent vite...
    Pour protéger et nourrir son peuple, à présent constitué de centaines d'enfants, Em va devoir explorer une cité dévastée, perdue au coeur d'une jungle habitée par de terribles créatures et, semble-t-il, d'autres êtres humains. Mais le danger qui guette la troupe ne vient pas seulement de l'extérieur. À mesure que le passé rattrape les adolescents, des clans se forment, des luttes intestines menacent la cohésion du groupe, l'adorateur d'un dieu assoiffé de sang est même prêt à tout pour renverser la jeune Savage...
    Jusqu'où Em ira-t-elle pour conserver sa place de chef ? Entre la survie de tous et le pouvoir, que choisira-t-elle ? Dans la suite d'Alive, Scott Sigler, véritable maître du thriller psychologique, joue une fois de plus avec nos nerfs. Et avec quel brio !

  • They dropped from the atmosphere like microscopic snow. Billions of seeds, smaller than specks of dust, spiralling down from the heavens. A few survived, and began to grow.Now three people face a race against time. Dew Phillips, an agent with a classified unit of the CIA, and Margaret Montoya, a government biologist, must try to stop a modern plague that drives its victims to insanity, murder and suicide.And Perry Dawsey, an ex-footballer in a dead-end job, must race to find a cure for the rash that has appeared on his arm. And his back. And his neck. And which is getting bigger.And then the voices start.

  • When the seeds landed on Chelsea Jewell, they made her seven-year-old body and mind the incubator for the worst plague ever to attack the planet. Mankind's best hope of defence is Perry Dawsey: host-turned-hunter, bloodthirsty psychotic, and - with his strange new ability - a key member of the black-ops team leading a deadly battle against the mysterious disease that is spreading across America. Now Dawsey and the rest of the black-ops team are in a desperate race to find and destroy Chelsea and her 'family' - before it's too late.

  • On a remote island in the Great Lakes, an unusual group of scientists are using extinct DNA to create the perfect organ donor. It could save millions of lives and win Dr Claus Rhumkorrf the Nobel Prize he craves. The donor animal is genetically the ancestor of all species on the planet - but Nature wiped it out two hundred million years ago. Rhumkorrf and his team are about to find out why.

  • For centuries, their race has lived beneath the earth, emerging only at night, to feed quietly on the dregs of society and slip back into the shadows. But now their time has come - their time to rise up from their hiding places and take back what is theirs.
    San Francisco homicide detective Bryan Klauser is supposed to be hunting a serial killer. But a serial killer couldn't be responsible for the seemingly impossible DNA evidence the crime-scene techs keep finding - or for the gory, strangely prophetic dreams Bryan keeps having. And what about the connections he keeps finding to a century-old cult - and his superiors' sudden reluctance to give him the answers he needs about cases that should be dead and buried?
    Ultimately, Klauser's investigations will reveal a race of killers who've long lurked beneath San Francisco's streets - and are preparing to take back the city. Klauser is the only man who can stop them, because . . . he might not be a man at all.

  • Scott Siglers Infected shocked readers with a visceral, up-close account of physical metamorphosis and one mans desperate fight for sanity and survival, as Scary Perry Dawsey suffered the impact of an alien pathogens early attempts at mass extinction. In the sequel Contagious, Sigler pulled back the camera and let the reader experience the frantic national response to this growing cataclysm.
    And now in Pandemic, the entire human race balances on the razors edge of annihilation, beset by an enemy that turns our own bodies against us, that changes normal people into psychopaths or transforms them into nightmares.
    To some, Doctor Margaret Montoya is a hero--a brilliant scientist who saved the human race from an alien intelligence determined to exterminate all of humanity. To others, shes a monster--a mass murderer single-handedly responsible for the worst atrocity ever to take place on American soil.
    All Margaret knows is that shes broken. The blood of a million deaths is on her hands. Guilt and nightmares have turned her into a shut-in, too mired in self-hatred even to salvage her marriage, let alone be the warrior she once was.
    But she is about to be called into action again. Because before the murderous intelligence was destroyed, it launched one last payload -- a soda cansized container filled with deadly microorganisms that make humans feed upon their own kind.
    That harmless-looking container has languished a thousand feet below the surface of Lake Michigan, undisturbed and impotent . . . until now.
    Part Cthulhu epic, part zombie apocalypse and part blockbuster alien-invasion tale, Pandemic completes the Infected trilogy and sets a new high-water mark in the world of horror fiction.

  • For fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Red Rising comes a gripping sci-fi adventure in which a group of teenagers wake up in a mysterious corridor with no knowledge of who they are or how they got trapped. Their only hope lies with an indomitable young woman who must lead them not only to answers but to survival.
    I open my eyes to darkness. Total darkness. I hear my own breathing, but nothing else. I lift my head . . . it thumps against something solid and unmoving. There is a board right in front of my face. No, not a board . . . a lid.
    A teenage girl awakens to find herself trapped in a coffin. She has no idea who she is, where she is, or how she got there. Fighting her way free brings little relief--she discovers only a room lined with caskets and a handful of equally mystified survivors. Beyond their room lies a corridor filled with bones and dust, but no people . . . and no answers.
    She knows only one thing about herself--her name, M. Savage, which was engraved on the foot of her coffin--yet she finds herself in charge. She is not the biggest among them, or the boldest, but for some reason the others trust her. Now, if theyre to have any chance, she must get them to trust one another.
    Whatever the truth is, she is determined to find it and confront it. If she has to lead, she will make sure they survive. Maybe theres a way out, a rational explanation, and a fighting chance against the dangers to come. Or maybe a reality they cannot comprehend lies just beyond the next turn.
    Advance praise for Alive A ripping, claustrophobic thunderbolt of a novel, Scott Siglers Alive gives us an unforgettable young hero who must find the inner strength to lead without knowing where she is, who she is, and how bitterly the odds are stacked against her.--Pierce Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Red Rising Sigler has created a wonderful and engrossing character in M. Savage. Strong and smart, but with the naïveté and misgivings of any teenage girl, shes someone youll definitely want on your side when s*** hits the fan, which it most certainly does.--Veronica Belmont, host of Sword & Laser A tense, unsettling page-turner of a story--both deeply strange and wildly compelling.--Cherie Priest, author of Boneshaker and Maplecroft From the first page I was hooked. The puzzle unfolds masterfully, right down to the last page.--Dr. Phil Plait, author of Bad Astronomy From the Hardcover edition.

  • In Alive, Scott Sigler introduced readers to an unforgettable young heroine and a mysterious new world reminiscent of those of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Red Rising. Now he expands his singular vision in the next thrilling novel of this powerful sci-fi adventure series. “If it’s war they want, they messed with the wrong girl.” M. Savage--or Em, as she is called--has made a bewildering and ominous discovery. She and the other young people she was chosen to lead awoke in strange coffins with no memory of their names or their pasts. They faced an empty, unknown place of twisting tunnels and human bones. With only one another to depend on, they searched for answers and found the truth about their terrifying fate. Confronted by a monstrous enemy, they vowed never to surrender--and, by any means, to survive. The planet Omeyocan may be the sanctuary Em and her comrades seek. But the planet for which they were created turns out not to be a pristine, virgin world. Vestiges of a lost civilization testify to a horrifying past that may yet repeat itself. And when a new enemy creeps from the jungle shadows, Em and her young refugees learn there’s nowhere left to run. They face a simple choice: fight or die. In the midst of this desperate struggle, their unity is compromised from within--and a dangerous zealot devoted to a bloodthirsty god moves to usurp Em’s command, threatening to lead them all down a path to violent doom.

  • In the final installment of an exhilarating sci-fi adventure trilogy in the vein of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Red Rising, Scott Sigler’s unforgettable heroine, Em Savage, must come to grips once and for all with the perilous mysteries of her own existence. “We thought this place was our destiny--not our doom.” Pawns in a millennia-old struggle, the young people known only as the Birthday Children were genetically engineered to survive on the planet Omeyocan--but they were never meant to live there. They were made to be “overwritten,” their minds wiped and replaced by the consciousnesses of the monsters who created them. Em changed all of that. She unified her people and led a revolt against their creators. Em and her friends escaped an ancient ghost ship and fled to Omeyocan. They thought they would find an uninhabited paradise. Instead, they found the ruins of a massive city long since swallowed by the jungle. And they weren’t alone. The Birthday Children fought for survival against the elements, jungle wildlife, the “Grownups” who created them . . . and, as evil corrupted their numbers, even against themselves. With these opponents finally defeated, Em and her people realized that more threats were coming, traveling from across the universe to lay claim to their planet. The Birthday Children have prepared as best they can against this alien armada. Now, as the first ships reach orbit around Omeyocan, the final battle for the planet begins.

  • The alien intelligence that unleashed two horrific assaults on humanity has been destroyed. But before it was brought down in flames, it launched one last payload - a tiny soda-can-sized canister filled with germs engineered to wreak new forms of havoc on the human race. That harmless-looking canister has languished under thousands of feet of water for years, undisturbed and impotent . . . until now.

    Days after the new disease is unleashed, a quarter of the human race is infected. Entire countries have fallen. And our planet's fate now rests on a small group of unlikely heroes, racing to find a cure before the enemies surrounding them can close in.
