A fast-paced, page-turning superhero dystopian urban fantasy –the perfect escape from the real world!

In a world where everyone wears a mask, you can't trust anyone... not even yourself.

Verity Fortune was once Sapphire City’s top crime-fighter, wielding her powers of telekinesis to battle the city’s most despicable villains.

Now, she’s consumed by a single burning desire -

Revenge.

Against those who took away her mask, her memory, and nearly her life.

Having escaped from the asylum they left her to rot in, Verity dons her mask once again and becomes the Seeker, a vigilante warrior for truth.

But when she unwittingly uncovers an evil conspiracy deep within her own family, she’s suddenly on the run, alone and hunted by those she thought were on her side...

Readers are loving The Sapphire City Chronicles:

‘Wow! This read was a real fun ride! A very grown-up superhero story with a hell of a pace, well drawn characters and fantastic, punchy dialogue. Verity Fortune is my spirit animal’ Erin

‘I haven’t read such a good book in a long time...a really refreshing urban fantasy/superhero tale that I simply gobbled up’ Rebecca

‘Kind of like batman, but a girl...there are some major twists and surprises that I did not see coming’ Maghon

‘Action packed and riveting..., I would recommend this book to anyone who likes superheroes’

‘This book's tone was very reminiscent of The Dark Knight with Heath Ledger, full of cunning misdirection and unpredictable characters. And the ending! Oh boy the ending...Worth every one of the five stars I gave it’ Judith

About the author

I'm an Aussie living in northern England, where at least the hospitality and the beer are warm. I write in coffee shops, feed my enormous cat, and watch TV or read until far too late at night. If it's got serial killers, superheroes, monsters or spaceships – preferably all four – I'm there.
On the big issues: Captain Picard is cooler than Captain Kirk, Batman would beat up Superman, and vampires are hotter than werewolves any day. See, I knew we'd get along.
