THE LIGHT HUNTERS

Published: January, 2020

For centuries, energy-wielding light hunters battled monsters ravaging the land, saving their world from a terrible fate. That is until a single, disastrous mistake turned people against Light, making this powerful and ancient force a feared and distant memory. 


Meet Lux, the boy with Light in his eyes. On the surface, he looks like a normal 12-year-old – but Lux has a secret. Not only can he wield Light, he might be the finest Light-healer the world has ever seen. When Lux uses his power to save his best friend Maya after a terrifying attack, his Light draws a strange, shadowy figure to town, aiming to use his powers for evil.

As he is catapulted into the world of the Light Hunters, Lux and his friends race against time to locate a roaming Monster and stop it before it destroys his hometown.

But is the Monster the real terror, or is there a greater danger lurking in the shadows, waiting for its moment to strike?

LH_CVR_Final copy.jpg

Coming out: August 2022

The Light Hunters have fought Monsters for centuries and Squad Juno are the very best at it. From cities to villages, the young group’s abilities are on show for all to see now that their powers don’t have to be used in secret. Every victory they have prevents a Monster from taking more victims, preventing more loss. Lux Dowd, Squad Juno’s healer, has had more than enough loss... But a more immediate loss is that of his powers. Lux can’t – or won’t – heal his teammates. Whenever he tries, a terrible energy comes from within and hurts the people around him. Lux can’t afford to lose anymore of those he cares about. Sent on a mission that could end their war against the Monsters, the Light Hunters soon find themselves making new allies in their quest to unearth an Ancient secret that may be able to stop the attacks. Could this really be the last monster they fight?
