First Born by James Goss
To be released 21st July

Gwen and Rhys are on the run.

Rhys was hoping this meant a windswept cottage on a cliff top, but he’s had to settle for a miserable caravan in the isolated village of Rawbone. With the locals taking an unhealthy interest in their daughter, Gwen and Rhys start to realise that something is very wrong – something with echoes of a life they thought they’d left behind.

As they uncover the village’s terrible past, Gwen discovers that Torchwood will never leave them behind, and now she and Rhys stand alone in defence of the Earth. And the children of Rawbone can only bring her closer to the secret forces that want her out of the way.

Long Time Dead by Sarah Pinborough
To be released 4th August

Cardiff Bay.

The government has ordered the excavation of the wreckage of a secret underground base.

DCI Tom Cutler is watching from a distance, fascinated by the process. There are people in his dreams. People he feels he should know.

The disbanded Torchwood Institute spent a century accumulating non-terrestrial artefacts and catching aliens. Who knows what – or who – might still be intact down there.

But by the time they find the first body, Suzie Costello is long gone.

The Men Who Sold the World by Guy Adams
To be released 18th August

When Oscar Lupe appears 20,000 feet up in the air, his body is frozen solid and free-falling to earth. It shatters on impact. Soon after, a CIA Special Activities Division squad goes rogue with a cargo marked ‘Torchwood’ that they’ve been escorting from somewhere called Cardiff. A very special shipment the British government is keen to offload at almost any price. The Agency puts Rex Matheson on the case. As the strange deaths pile up, Rex realises there must be experimental tech out there, but someone is obstructing him at every turn – each time he seems to be catching up with the rogue unit, something puts him off the trail. Rex is the CIA’s golden boy – but has he met his match in the evasive Mr Wynter?

    I’m not the biggest reader in the world but these look good and seem to tie in with the up coming series…I might just be persuaded ! (Especially as I’m working my way through series 1 – 3 at the mo in prep for Miracle day…me thinks I could need to read the books as well !

    The book about Suzie looks interesting, and even since the Hub was blown up I wondered what happened to the bodies in the mortuary!

    I find it odd that prequels to a series that begins in a few weeks time are being released when the series nearly finishes.
