After what feels like a sizeable hiatus (but is in fact only a matter of a couple of weeks or so), DLS Reviews is back with another in-depth dissection – this time for author Gemma X Todd’s debut novel ‘Defender’ (2017).

If you tend to enjoy a thick slab of hardboiled post-apocalyptic fiction with a healthy chunk of originality festering away within its boils, then the first instalment in this four-part series is almost certainly for you.
