TOUR-BOOKSYNOPSIS

Deeta Richards has never seen the outside world. Before she was born a banking crisis brought civilization to an end and now no one leaves the safety of the compounds unless they need to, but Deeta still dreams of seeing more than the building she was born in.

Tom is in the guard, this group are the only people that the tribal elders allow to leave the compound and Tom knows only too well that Deeta could never survive the harshness that exists outside. Then tragedy strikes and Deeta and her Sister Jan find themselves captured by a hostile tribe. Why does Tom know so much about these people? And why do they know so much about him? As this mystery draws to a climax, they discover that their friend Tom is not quite what he seems…..

Review:

Rating: (out of 5 fangs) 5 fangs out of 5
I received this book from Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock in exchange for an honest review.
Review:
Young adult dystopian fiction has gotten very popular in the last couple of years with the publication of such best-selling series as Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy and Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy. D. D. Chant’s novel, Broken City, joins these books and makes a very promising beginning to a new series. The world in which it is set exists after a banking collapse and the main character, whose POV narrates the story, has never been out in the world and Deeta Richards’ life revolves around taking care of her family and the adopted children of her friend Tom.
When secrets are revealed about Tom and the children that he has rescued from the world outside, Deeta and the rest of her Tribe are forced to make decisions and take actions they might not otherwise have taken and Deeta learns many lessons about herself and her family.
Some YA fiction delves into more adult concepts, but Broken City keeps the romantic pairings between several of the characters clean which means that I could easily recommend this book to 13+. The dystopian nature of the book makes me recommend that parents read the book to ensure that their teens are mature enough to handle the concepts.
On the whole I really enjoyed the book, and look forward to the next installment!

TOUR-BOOKSYNOPSIS

Life isn’t turning out the way Deeta thought it would. With the Lewises defeated and peace between the tribes, she’d believed that the dark times were in the past.

However, troubles between the tribe continue and the Andak council has selected Tom as ambassador and chief spokesmen to the other tribes.

Deeta knows that there is still much resentment against the Andak, that Tom is in danger every time he leaves the safety of Andak city.

Struggling with her own her own complicated feelings against the tribe that she is now a part of, Deeta tries to ignore the changing attitudes growing within her.

Then Tom is betrayed and with the whole City thrown in to great danger, Deeta finds that reality can’t be ignored forever…

Rating: (out of 5 fangs) 4 out of 5
I received this book from Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock in exchange for an honest review.
Review:  Broken Truce continues the story of Deeta Richards (now Andak) and her family as they try to survive in a dystopian world brought about by a banking collapse. The Broken City novels defy classification in a way because, while they are very much like the Hunger Games and Divergent series, the main characters are not young adults, which is the hallmark of Young Adult fiction. However, the reads are clean so they are definitely appropriate for young adults who are mature enough to handle the dystopian nature of the books.
Broken Truce is a slightly more violent book than the first book of the series, Broken City, and parents should be aware of that before allowing their children to read it.  The Tribes are in negotiations to form a truce that would allow the City to thrive under joint leadership, and one of the Tribes really doesn’t want to see that happen. The four out of five rating comes from the fact that I am not a big fan of cliffhanger endings because I feel like they are a sneaky way for an author to encourage someone to read the next book in the series. D. D. Chant doesn’t need a cliffhanger ending to encourage people to read the next book because the story, the characters, and the world all draw the reader in, in such a way as to make it nearly impossible to NOT read the next book, and I hope it comes out soon! Reviewed by HR Duby

TOUR-MEETAUTHOR

Hi everyone!
My name is Dee Dee, I’m twenty six and I live in a beautiful part of Devon, England with my family. I have a younger sister, Amy who is a brilliant guitar player, some chickens, duck, geese, pheasants, a cat (that adopted us when we moved in!!!) and some Koi.

Broken City is actually my second novel. My first, as my Aunt so delicately put it, was crazy. In my defence I was only sixteen when I wrote it. On the plus side I learnt a lot (or so I hope) and two years later ‘Broken City’ was finished. Due to the support I have received from readers I have just finished the next book in the Broken City series, Broken Truce!

I have another book, ‘The Promise’, which is set in Saxon England is the beginning of a series. I’ve just begun to edit the next book and I’m really looking forward to releasing it.
My third series is called The Chronicles of Discord. The first book, ‘Fracture’, is set in the distant future and tells the story of Astra, a young woman with a very big secret.

I have just finished the second book in the series and it’s currently awaiting editing.
I really hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.

I love reading and have a kindle: I read almost anything with adventure and romance in it! I also like to cook and wear impractical high heels!!! And as you might have noticed I have a horrible addiction to exclamation marks!!!
