Two families are united—and torn apart—by the Civil War in these three dramatic novels by the #1 New York Times–bestselling master of the historical epic. In North and South, the first volume of John Jakes’s acclaimed and sweeping saga, a friendship is threatened by the divisions of the Civil War. In the years leading up to the Civil War, one enduring friendship embodies the tensions of a nation. Orry Main from South Carolina and George Hazard from Pennsylvania forge a lasting bond while training at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Together they fight in the Mexican-American War, but their closeness is tested as their regional politics diverge. As the first rounds are fired at Fort Sumter, Orry and George find themselves on different sides of the coming struggle. In John Jakes’s unmatched style, North and South launches a trilogy that captures the fierce passions of a country at the precipice of disaster. In Love and War, the Main and Hazard families clash on and off the Civil War’s battlefields as they grapple with the violent realities of a divided nation. With the Confederate and Union armies furiously fighting, the once-steadfast bond between the Main and Hazard families continues to be tested. From opposite sides of the conflict, they face heartache and triumph on the frontlines as they fight for the future of the nation and their loved ones. With his impeccable research and unfailing devotion to the historical record, John Jakes offers his most enthralling and enduring tale yet. In Heaven and Hell, the battle between the Mains and Hazards—and Confederate and Union armies—comes to a brilliant end. The last days of the Civil War bring no peace for the Main and Hazard families. As the Mains’ South smolders in the ruins of defeat, the Hazards’ North pushes blindly for relentless industrial progress. Both the nation and the families’ long-standing bond hover on the brink of destruction. In the series’ epic conclusion, Jakes expertly blends personal conflict with historical events, crafting a haunting page-turner about America’s constant change and unyielding hope. This “entertaining [and] authentic dramatization” (The New York Times) is a thrilling tale of shifting loyalties, set during one of the darkest moments in American history.

Seit ein mysteröses 'Ereignis' vor mehr als dreißig Jahren das Gebiet erschütterte, ist Area X von einer unsichtbaren Grenze umgeben. Niemand weiß genau, was dahinter geschieht, aber es gibt Gerüchte von einer sich verändernden und die Reste der menschlichen Zivilisation überwuchernden Natur, einer Natur, die ebenso makellos und bezaubernd wie verstörend und bedrohlich ist. Zuständig für das Gebiet ist eine geheime Regierungsorganisation, die sich 'Southern Reach' nennt und den Auftrag hat, herauszufinden, was hinter der Grenze geschieht. Aber keine der Expeditionen, die 'Southern Reach' in das Gebiet entsandte, um Erklärungen für das Unerklärbare zu finden, hatte bisher Erfolg. Die meisten der Expeditionen endeten in Katastrophen, bei denen letztlich alle Mitglieder ums Leben kamen, und die Zeit, um Antworten zu finden, wird knapp, denn Area X scheint sich immer schneller auszudehnen. "Auslöschung" ist der Bericht über die zwölfte Expedition. Sie besteht aus vier Frauen: einer Anthropologin, einer Landvermesserin, einer Psychologin und einer Biologin. Ihre Aufgabe ist es, die Geheimnisse von Area X zu entschlüsseln, das Gebiet zu kartographieren, Flora und Fauna zu katalogisieren, ihre Beobachtungen in Tagebüchern zu dokumentieren, vor allem aber sich nicht von Area X kontaminieren zu lassen. Doch es sind die Geheimnisse, die sie mit über die Grenze gebracht haben, die alles verändern werden ... Ein fesselnder, fantastischer Roman über eine unheimliche Welt und die Fremdheit in uns. Ein Roman von der Kraft eines Mythos.
