Vanguard Prime is an exciting, action-packed new superhero series for 10+. Think  'Alex  Rider joins  the X-men!' 
Sam Lee was just a normal teenager . . . until  the  disastrous emergence of his superpowers. Now he has joined his childhood heroes and become the youngest-ever member of Vanguard Prime.

'As Vanguard Prime takes the field... I wonder how I come across to all the soldiers gathered around us, dressed in the black-and-gold V-suit that looks as if somebody skinned a Lamborghini and made a lightweight spacesuit from its pelt.

Do I look like the others; a seasoned superhero ready to take on the world? Do I look like Sam Lee, AKA Goldrush, super-speedster extraordinaire? Or do I look like how I feel; a kid who's swallowed a crate of fireworks and is counting down to the horrible moment when they explode?'

In this exciting free novella, the perfect introduction to the series, Vanguard Prime is responding to a Red Alert: a multi-billion-dollar research think tank has just been stormed by a supervillain strike force headed by the Red Death. Each level of the centre is booby-trapped with bombs and Red Death has handpicked an arch-rival (aka murderous psychopath) to neutralize each member of the VP team. But this is just the maze that Vanguard Prime has to run to find out what's really at stake where Red Death himself waits for an enormous machine to warm up on sub-level 4.
