Set in the 25th Century Portal Future

2408. Humanity has travelled to the stars through interstellar portals, but the rebels and criminals were left behind on a ruined Earth. Eighteen-year-old Blaze is one of the last seven hundred people scavenging a living in an increasingly lethal New York infested by alien predators. Forced to step into the spotlight to help her father defeat a leadership challenge by her old enemy Cage, she’s now adjusting to being deputy leader of the uneasy alliance between the remnants of the Earth Resistance and the old criminal gangs.

As a child, Blaze escaped the firestorm when the London power grid exploded, and a similar firestorm will soon hit New York. The alliance must leave New York this spring or die, but they’re facing the twin threats of a fugitive Cage hiding somewhere in the area, and his old supporters causing trouble within the alliance. When a hunting party fails to return, the situation starts spiralling out of control, and the alliance’s off-worlder guests have a key part to play.

Scavenger Blood is the second book in the Scavenger Exodus series. This is set in the same future timeline as the Earth Girl trilogy, but takes place several centuries earlier, and features an ancestor of the trilogy’s main character, Jarra.

Books In Brogan “I have enjoyed every minute of this book and will read what ever Janet Edwards wants to write at this point. Her unique and imaginative worlds with their relatable characters will keep your attention from the first sentence.” See review

Brainfluff “This series is highly recommended for science fiction fans who enjoy a well-written dystopian scenario featuring a feisty young female protagonist.” See review

Birmingham Science Fiction Group (Carol Goodwin) “The plot builds to an exciting climax with a nice mixture of thrilling action scenes and political confrontations.”  “All in all, another excellent YA SF book”

    Just finished Scavenger Blood, I ran acrossed it yesterday on Amazon. Sorry it gave you problems while writing it, but it was well worth the wait. It was really excellent, I’m sure I will reread it but I think I need another Jarra fix. Just have a question or two, is this the last of Blaze’s story? or will there be another one? … Also, how is “Earth and Water” coming along? Thank you for writing such good books…


    • I’m glad you enjoyed Scavenger Blood, Star. Yes, there will be another book in the series. In fact, the problem with writing Scavenger Blood was that the creative side of my brain included some of book 3 in Scavenger Blood. I had to surgically remove that bit and do a lot of tidying up of Scavenger Blood. Trust me, it works much better this way.

      I hope you’ll get another Jarra fix in 2020, but everything is very uncertain at the moment. As soon as I’ve finished releasing Scavenger Blood, I’ll be working out my schedule for future books. I should have some semi-definite information to include in the release newsletter for the Scavenger Blood paperback in August.

    So…. Is the cache of paintings the same one Jarra finds in Earth Girl? Also does anyone feel a ping of sadness when the take historical documents out of stasis boxes to store their food? When I think of what Jarra would do if she knew that ^_^

    • Yes, the cache of paintings is the same one Jarra finds in Earth Girl. I also pictured Jarra’s thoughts if she ever discovered her ancestor had wantonly destroyed historical documents. They weren’t just tossed out of their stasis boxes, but handed over to the alliance children to draw and write on the back. Sadly, I don’t think anyone in the Scavenger Alliance considered future historians at all.

      My other thought was about future archaeologists breathlessly opening a stasis box only to discover it was full of fish. Something I must try to sneak into a future story.

    Given the song Donnel wrote for Blaze’s mom and Tads middle name, is the famous Betan love story with Paul and Helena about Tad and Blaze?

    Just wondering when the paperback’s coming out (not really a Kindle girl)? Says August on this page, but no mention on Amazon so I can’t even put it on my list. On tenterhooks here.

    By the way, did you have Exodus planned since writing Earth Girl? Playdon does mention a “massive fire that went on for two months” in New York. Also, does the timing mean we’ll be following these characters until 2409, when I gather Tad is in for a nasty shock?


    • Hi Harriet. Apologies that the paperback of Scavenger Blood isn’t listed on Amazon yet. I don’t put books up for pre-order at the moment for multiple reasons that are a bit long to explain here, but people who sign up for my newsletter get an email alert when anything new gets published. I’m currently checking the paperback proof copy for errors, so you shouldn’t have to wait more than another two weeks.

      The Portal Future is a bit like a jigsaw puzzle in my head. The Earth Girl trilogy is one of the pieces in that jigsaw puzzle. When I wrote the trilogy, I was often mentioning bits of past history, or including/referring to characters. I knew that many of those had stories which were other pieces in that jigsaw puzzle. I wasn’t plotting every bit of those stories in advance, but I knew some things about them and how they linked together, and included a few links in the trilogy.

      So yes, there are link references in the Earth Girl trilogy to the Scavenger Exodus series. A couple of links between the trilogy and Scavenger Alliance are the fire and flying lizards. You may spot other links when you read Scavenger Blood. In fact, there are links scattered through everything I write in the Portal Future, including the novellas and short stories. I remember at least one link reference to the Scavenger Exodus series in Frontier, but including these things is so automatic that I’m not always aware I’m doing it, and many links are to stories I haven’t written yet.

      And finally, I know exactly what you mean about Tad getting a nasty shock, but I’ve got a significant amount of the third book written and . . . I can’t think of a way to answer your question other than to say that it’s complicated.
