The second novel in one of the **MOST TALKED-ABOUT** post-apocalyptic series.

'Thrilling . . . Todd skilfully captures hope and humanity in the lives of characters whom the reader comes to care about: Hunted, like Defender, is an impressive achievement' Guardian

The girl has no one to defend her now . . .

The hunt for the girl, Lacey, is on.

One man is tormented by an inner voice that isn't his. It eats away at his sanity and, with cruel precision, orders the lawless to follow him. Their mission is to find the girl, steal what she knows ... and kill.

In an Inn by the sea, Albus gathers a family of warriors and waits to be called upon. He doesn't know yet why Lacey is important, but he trusts his sister. And Ruby says he must find the girl - before it's too late.

A great power lives in Lacey and she has a destiny to fulfil. Whether for good or ill remains to be seen ...

Hunted is the second book in the must-read Voices series, where a voice in your head might be all that stands between survival and death.
