Sue was asked to write the first in a new sci-fi series about Lucy Wilson, whose grandfather will be known to Dr Who fans.
Londoner Lucy Wilson feels out of place in a sleepy Welsh village but her new life is far from boring. The coast is wild, the gulls are crazed and there’s a voice on the wind luring her into danger. Ogmore seems to be in the power of a mysterious and powerful force, but is Lucy its target? When students at her new school start to disappear, no one seems to care except Hobo, Lucy’s unusual new friend. Hobo believes in logic; Lucy has an A* imagination and (almost) no fear. Together they must find ways to defeat an invisible enemy that wants to invade their minds.
Jeremy Vine says: “A great read — brilliant characters and a plot that keeps surprising you. Sue Hampton writes in three dimensions! Avatars of the Intelligence draws you in from the very first page. A great read for teenagers (and their parents, actually).”
