ALITA: Battle Angel by Pat Cadigan




From visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City), comes the novelization of Alita: Battle Angel, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past—she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family, and the world she’s grown to love. (From Blackstone Audio, read by Brian Nishii. The 2018 science-fiction film, Alita: Battle Angel, is based on manga by Yukito Kishiro. The film is directed by Robert Rodriguez, written and produced by James Cameron, and starring Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, and Mahershala Ali.

STAR QUEST by Patricia Lee Macomber: Cara Bishop already saved the world. Now, with the war over and the aliens defeated, she's teaching other pilots to fly the alien ships that turned the tide...until the government approaches her about joining a super-secret mission, that is. Steve Hunter is the product of alien DNA. He was created in a lab, designed to destroy the aliens in a ground war that was never fought. Now, they're finally putting him to use as the leader of this new mission.



Together with the scientist who created Steve and the genius who invented the ship, Cara and her captain set off on a final adventure. The USS Endeavor goes in search of allies among the stars. What they find is more than they ever bargained for. If their mission is to be a success, they will have to solve a mystery and escape destruction at the hands of an all new foe. All in a day's work for the Endeavor crew. (See also The DeChance Chronicles, also from Crossroad Press.) Carlucci's Edge by Richard Paul Russo.
