Defender by G X Todd is an imaginative thriller that draws on influences like 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 The Stand, you'll love Defender, the first in a four-part series.

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, 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. #HearTheVoices

Praise for this book

"Compelling, suspenseful, and altogether extraordinary." - Lee Child

"It's not often you read a debut this assured, this confident. Defender is simply majestic." - Adam Christopher

"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

"A chilling vision of a world gone feral, yet strangely triumphant. You can taste the dust and blood and sweat; the fear on every page. Readers should approach with caution, those voices will burrow into your head and heart." - Karen Maitland
