Tossed from foster home to foster home, Olivia’s seen a lot in her sixteen years. She’s hardened, sure, though mostly just wants to fly under the radar until graduation.

Soon, Z has brought Liv into his team of hacker elite—break into a few bank accounts, and voila, he drives a motorcycle.

And he’s got bigger plans for Liv…


My Review
This was pretty darn good. Y'all know I like me a good dystopian story. In The Deadly Sun we enter a society built after our present day society have fudged up. The sun has always been deadly but now the ultraviolet rays are stronger so people either live underground or in domes. Well you have the Grounders...

This has similar themes that we have seen in other dystopians like Hunger Games, Divergent and such. I'm not bothered by that because quite frankly every genre has a trope, if they didn't then how would the be group together in genres. Anyway, I like the characters. And the storytelling. It grabbed me from beginning to end. I think that If you looking for a good dystopian novel this should be the next one on your list.

About the Author
I was born in Lancaster, England. Growing up in a single parent household with five other siblings was difficult but at the same time character building.

As a young child I found a passion for drawing and writing, which has stayed with me into adulthood. I graduated from the University of Central Lancashire, England with a BA(Hons) in fashion design.

At aged twenty seven, my husband and I packed up our belongings for our lifelong dream to move to California. Our America dream was completed with the birth of our daughter.

A new job opportunity opened up New York, and we decided to relocate to Long Island, NY, where we currently reside.

My books are a mixture of thriller, action, and dystopian. If you’re looking for a good place to start, take a look at War Kids series of thrillers, available now. You can grab copies in either ebook or paperback. To get an email whenever I release a new title, sign up for the VIP newsletter by click this link.
