The most gripping read-in-one-go thriller (The Voices Book 1)

DEFENDER by G X Todd is an imaginative thriller that draws on influences from Stephen King, Clive Barker and Neil Gaiman to create a new world - where the biggest threat mankind faces is from the voices inside your own head. If you loved Joe Hill's THE FIREMAN and devoured THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS, you'll love DEFENDER, the first in a four part series.

In a world where long drinks are in short supply, a stranger listens to the voice in his head telling him to buy a lemonade from the girl sitting on a dusty road.

The moment locks them together.

Here and now it's dangerous to listen to your inner voice. Those who do, keep it quiet.

These voices have purpose.

And when Pilgrim meets Lacey, there is a reason. He just doesn't know it yet.

DEFENDER pulls you on a wild ride to a place where the voices in your head will save or slaughter you.
