Broken City  by D. D. Chant
This is my second D.D. Chant book and I really enjoy her stories and her writing. I will say this one started just a little slow for me but then picked back up. I like the fact that this is a pretty relatable dystopian it is futuristic but could it happen the way this story describes it, sure. This story takes place in England, everything has fallen apart the government is gone. The Military generals have taken over the military bases, and the rest of the people have grouped together to survive in clans, or groups of families. We learn the daily functioning of the Deeta her group and how taxing it is on them, but yet they are happy. Deeta's best friend Tomasz always seems a little sad, short but caring towards Deeta. He is always going away for long periods of time and then returning. Deeta and her little group have been doing pretty well until someone comes and takes one of their own. Then all breaks loss, secrets are confessed, danger is abound, consequences will be payed.
Tomasz was an awesome character I loved him, not so much in the beginning but as time goes on. He is always chivalrous, brave and courageous. He just has a hard time admitting to himself and Deeta that he really cares about her. Deeta on the other hand is naive, sweet, caring,and stubborn. It takes her quite sometime to figure out that she really does have deep feelings for Tomasz. At times this drove me a little crazy, but at the same time it worked. There are many other wonderful characters in this story that I will save for you to explore. All of them were well rounded and interesting, loved them all. This was a really enjoyable read and am excited for the rest of the story to be released.
