What to expect

The Malice was entertaining and riveting, with almost never a dull moment. … Do yourself a favour, buy this book. And the first one, too, if you don’t already own it. You will regret nothing.’ – Geeks of Doom

In the south, the Breach stirs.

Gamma’s sword, the Malice, wakes, calling to be taken to battle once more.

But the Vagrant has found a home now, made a life and so he turns his back, ignoring its call.

The sword cries out, frustrated, until another answers.

Her name is Vesper.

Critics Review

  • Reviews of THE VAGRANT:

    ★★★★★ ‘For fans of classic science-fiction literature, this is a must-read.’ – SciFi Now

    ★★★★ ‘Come visit this brilliantly imaginative land of winged swords and broken solar cells.’ – SFX

    ‘The Vagrant is a joy to read: an original and engrossing world, a strong story and a protagonist who is intensely charismatic despite – or because of – his silence. Newman’s debut is written with confidence, flair and imagination, bringing his dark world to marvellously macabre life’
    Adrian Tchaikovsky, Author of Shadows of the Apt series

    ‘A stunning and ambitious debut novel set in a unique and imaginative world where the only hope rests on the capacity of human beings to love’ Melinda M. Snodgrass
