COLD LIGHT OF DAY
A savage killing spree results in the deaths of two highly-regarded Judges, and many consider Dredd to be responsible: a decision he made five years earlier – while he was still a cadet – has come back to haunt him.

But how far are they willing to go to save the human race?
Decades ago the superhuman Quantum received a vision of a devastating war in which billions will die.
Now it seems that Quantum’s prophecy will come to pass. Weakened from their battle with Victor Cross’s army of clones, the New Heroes are unprepared for the return of the first superhuman: the immortal despot Krodin.

Ten years ago, all the superhumans vanished. No one knows what happened to them--until now. Thirteen-year-olds Danny and Colin are shocked to discover that they are in fact the beginning of a renewed superhuman race. As they rise to take the place of the lost generation, the unimaginable truth behind the explosive final battle that occurred ten years ago between the superheroes and the supervillains is exposed. And when the past resurfaces, Danny and his fellow superheroes must face the new challenges that threaten their survival. On the run from everyone, and not knowing who is friend or foe, the one ability the new heroes are going to need most is the power to distinguish good from evil.
United States of America, 2051 A.D.
Chief Eustace Fargo is dead...
A routine stop, a gunshot, and the world changes. It’s been twenty years since Francesco Deacon first put on the badge, and it grows heavier every year; but today more than ever, there’s work to do.
And then Judges in Philadelphia pick up Dallas Hawker, a long-time fugitive and Deacon’s closest ever link to a crime-lord he’s been chasing his whole career...
In a time of widespread poverty, inequality and political unrest, Special Prosecutor Eustace Fargo’s controversial new justice laws have come into effect.
Protests and violence meet the first Judges as they hit the street to enforce the Law; the cure, it’s clear, is far worse than the disease.
Is this a sign of things to come?
The defeat of the near-invincible villain Krodin has left a void in the superhuman hierarchy, a void that two opposing factors are trying to fill. The powerful telepath Max Dalton believes that the human race must be controlled and shepherded to a safe future, while his rival Casey Duval believes that strength can only be achieved through conflict.
Caught in the middle is Lance McKendrick, a teenager with no special powers, only his wits and the tricks of a con artist. But Lance has a mission of his own: Krodin’s ally, the violent and unpredictable supervillain Slaughter, murdered Lance’s family, and he intends to make her pay.
For fans of Steelheart and The Avengers, Hunter is an action-packed superhero story that is hard to put down.
Praise for HUNTER
“No one writes superheroes as good as Michael Carroll. With Hunter, Michael takes his flawed, all-too-human superheroes to the next level. One of my favorite series.”—Michael Scott, author of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series
“[HUNTER] is fast paced, exciting, and extremely difficult to put down . . . its unexpected, jaw-dropping ending guarantees anticipation for the next entry."—VOYA
"A flurry of odd jobs (including time in a carnival), a brief romantic fling, and an intriguing epilogue make this appealing to all sorts of readers, and as always, Carroll delivers a super story."—Booklist
Twenty years hard labour in a penal colony a billion kilometres from Earth. They gave me mechanical lungs just so I can breathe, laced my skin with polymers so I can walk in sub-zero temperatures. Stripped away everything that made me human.
I was a hero and they turned me into a gruddamned monster.
But maybe that was fate, because in the year 2089 disaster hit the prison, and it was down to me to save everyone.
Sometimes the monster becomes the hero.
But three weeks later, the world suddenly changes. The United States is under martial law, the people are little more than drones, and where Central Park should be there now stands a massive glass-and-steel building, home to the all-powerful Chancellor.
In Michael Carroll's follow-up to the acclaimed Super Human, the world has been remade in the Chancellor's image, and it's about to get much much worse. Only this young band of heroes has a chance of stopping him, but can they return the world to what it was, or will they be stranded in this alternate world forever?
Determined to stand against them, using powers they’ve only just begun to master, is a ragtag group of young heroes. For them this first test may be their greatest . . . and last.
