HS – ESSENTIAL

For three years, Blade has managed to stay invisible and avoid the thugs that want him more dead than alive. The day he meets up with a teen and a little girl, however, may be the beginning of the end for Blade. He is in a race for his life through English city streets – and his is not the only life on the line.

The tension is palpable and anyone who starts this book will not be able to stop!
