Description

Don't miss this thrilling second book in The Sapphire City Chronicles!



Verity Fortune is back in this gripping superhero dystopian fantasy.

Superpowers don't make you a hero...



Verity Fortune's crime-fighting days are over. In exile, defeated by her smug supervillain nemesis, her shady past exposed-even her own superpowered family condemns her as a traitor. Whatever it takes, Verity's determined to prove she can still be a force for good.


Now, Sapphire City faces a new threat: a delinquent duo with extraordinary powers and a terrifying talent for destruction. Outmatched and on the run, her telekinetic powers faltering, Verity can't defeat this menace alone-but whom can she trust, when the only person who believes in her is her arch-enemy?



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

Review quote

Praise for 'Scorched':


'Action packed and riveting' - A World of Books


'Superherogeekaliciousextrabadassocious...if you like superheroes in all their glittery glory, complex heroes and sympathetic villains, then definitely check this book out!' - The Demon Librarian


'I swear I turned pages on my Kindle so fast smoke was flying off them. I also think that anybody who buys this book to read should be provided with their very own Augmented Superhero costume to wear whilst reading it. Because this book was a FUN RIDE and I wanted some of the action!' - Booklover Catlady Reviews


'Well written dialogue, atmospheric settings and vivid action make this a gripping read' - Jane Hunt Writer Book Reviews

About Erica Hayes

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.
