The Vanguard

SJ Griffin

Young Adult / Science Fiction / Steampunk

A post-catastrophe mystery thriller, The Vanguard is the first part of a trilogy following the adventures of Sorcha Blades - courier, hacker and reluctant superhero. Sorcha and her friends are accustomed to doing whatever they have to do to survive, but making sure everyone else survives? That’s not really in their repertoire.“...a genuinely original and genre-busting novel combining speculative, fantasy and science fiction writing to great effect” The Bookbag ‘And so a time will come to pass when the vanguard will emerge from the underground to battle the forces of darkness for the first of the final times. There will be five to face these foes. One to speak in tongues, one to cleanse in flame, one to stand beyond sight, one to read beyond the veil and one to move the earth.’In the city that will not drown but cannot swim, Sorcha Blades keeps her head above water by wheeling, dealing and stealing. But when an accident gifts her and four friends with talents their world has never seen, they must take a stand against the angels and their acolytes before everything they never knew they cared about is swept away.
