Synopsis

An imaginative thriller that draws on influences from Stephen King, Clive Barker and Neil Gaiman to create a new world where the voice in your head might be all that stands between survival and death. If you loved Bird Box on Netflix, you'll love Defender, the first in a four-part series.



'Compelling, suspenseful and altogether extraordinary' Lee Child



'On the cusp of sleep, have we not all heard a voice call out our name?'



In a world where long drinks are in short supply, it's dangerous to listen to your inner voice.



Those who do, keep it quiet.



But one man listens to the voice in his head telling him to buy a lemonade from the girl sitting on a dusty road.



There is a reason why Pilgrim and Lacey must cross paths.



They just don't know it yet . . .



#HearTheVoices



'So accomplished that it's difficult to believe it's a first novel, Defender is already worthy to take its place alongside The Stand in the canon. An absolute gem of a book' John Connolly

Customer Reviews

It’s our world, but not as we know it. It’s been seven years since the voices made themselves known and the population of the world dwindled. Now those that are left fighting to survive. Pilgrim is a loner. He has survived, fought when he had to, done what needed to be done. However, meeting Lacey, a strong, surprising teenager, changes all that. He finds himself helping the girl to try to find her family and the two of them embark on an eventful, dramatic, action-packed road trip of sorts. Going into this book I had no idea what to expect. I didn’t know if it would be my kind of read, but let me tell you – IT IS BRILLIANT! Yes it’s dark, violent and bloody. Yes there’s gore, guns and grief. But there’s also friendship, loyalty, fantastic characters and writing that will keep you hooked from the outset.
