Optioned for TV by CBS in a massive deal, Ian McDonald's Luna trilogy has already been acclaimed as one of the most exciting and important SF series of the decade.

Akin to the mafia families of The Godfather, the families of the five Dragons who control the rich resources of the moon are locked in an endless and vicious struggle for supremacy and now the peace that reigned while the moon was colonised is breaking down. Which of the scions of the dragons will gain supremacy? Or will the moon, with its harsh vacuum, it's freezing dark and blazing, irradiated light be the final winner?

The Moon wants to kill you. Whether it's being unable to pay your per diem for your allotted food, water, and air, or you just get caught up in a fight between the Moon's ruling corporations, the Five Dragons. You must fight for every inch you want to gain in the Moon's near feudal society. And that is just what Adriana Corta did. As the leader of the Moon's newest "dragon," Adriana has wrested control of the Moon's Helium-3 industry from the Mackenzie Metal corporation and fought to earn her family's new status. Now, at the twilight of her life, Adriana finds her corporation, Corta Helio, surrounded by the many enemies she made during her meteoric rise. If the Corta family is to survive, Adriana's five children must defend their mother's empire from her many enemies... and each other. Luna 1. Luna: New Moon 2. Luna: Wolf Moon 3.

A Dragon is dead. Corta Helio, one of the five family corporations that rule the Moon, has fallen. Its riches are divided up among its many enemies, its survivors scattered. Eighteen months have passed . The remaining Helio children, Lucasinho and Luna, are under the protection of the powerful Asamoahs, while Robson, still reeling from witnessing his parent’s violent deaths, is now a ward--virtually a hostage-- of Mackenzie Metals. And the last appointed heir, Lucas, has vanished of the surface of the moon. Only Lady Sun, dowager of Taiyang, suspects that Lucas Corta is not dead, and more to the point—that he is still a major player in the game. After all, Lucas always was the Schemer, and even in death, he would go to any lengths to take back everything and build a new Corta Helio, more powerful than before. But Corta Helio needs allies, and to find them, the fleeing son undertakes an audacious, impossible journey--to Earth. In an unstable lunar environment, the shifting loyalties and political machinations of each family reach the zenith of their most fertile plots as outright war erupts.

Alexander Christofedes is suddenly thrust into a world he never knew existed. Caught in a centuries-old battle between werewolf clans, Alex finds an ally in Sabine Luna, a member of the rival clan. When a dark evil threatens the existence of both clans, Alex and Sabine must find a way to stand together and face their destiny. Alexander Christofedes has always been fascinated with wolves. So when he is given the opportunity to study the Apennine wolves in the Italian Alps, he seizes the chance. But everything changes when his camp is brutally attacked, leaving him the sole survivor, and turns his life into a living nightmare. Little did he know when he received that mysterious letter promising answers he would be thrust into a centuries-long battle between rival werewolf clans. Sabine Luna is a seductive contradiction to Alex’s nightmares. The female beta to a secret Benandanti clan, her life and love has always been dedicated to her family and friends. But her allegiance is tested when Alex crashes into her life, and she finds herself drawn to the handsome stranger. Now, the Dark Moon Clan is being threatened by the very man that conjured them into existence, a dark, dangerous being wholly intent on killing them all. Faced with this menace, Alex must decide between standing unified with Sabine and their clan or turning his back on them and his destiny.

"Atlantis: Cherished Gem" is the sequel to "Atlantis: Precious Stone" and is the chronicle of events which occur following the destruction of Atlantis and AurL's withdrawal of the Projection. The Atlanteans, who had hoped to regain the Formative World of Yetzirah on board the magical Mnemonotron, regain stunned consciousness to find themselves dwelling within the submerged Lens that they had programmed during the Projection, there discovering that their Magnum Opus for Atlantis is destined to continue upon Assiyatic Terra in the coming epochs. To the dismay of Lynci, Tym, and their Diamond Classmates, they learn that dissension prevails among the Adepts and Aspirants at the Temple of Avalyn while Satyron and his minions remain evilly active at the Iridium Fountain and elsewhere in the Material World. The loyal Initiates are required therefore to employ their magical skills diligently in the endeavor to manifest AurL's design for Terra despite intense opposition from his opponents.
