Instead of zombies or plagues, a huge financial crisis has hit and decimated society as we knew it. Tribes formed and built compounds to keep their people and resources safe from each other.

The Andak tribe is the richest and most feared out of all the tribes. I felt lukewarm about Deeta. She was meant to be brave and com I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl.

She was meant to be brave and compassionate - her compassion drew me to her, and she is brave but much more full of self doubt than I wanted in a heroine.

I rooted for her to tell Tom how she felt about him even though I wasn't terribly keen on him. She saw something in him that I wasn't able to until later.

I didn't like Tom until he finally opened up to Deeta. I felt like he took her for granted and was so stoic as to be almost creepy.

The huge secret he's keeping inside explained his behavior, and things took a turn I never expected.

The tribe would never be the same again. My only issues with BROKEN CITY are the switch in point-of-view, and I wanted more background into how everything changed after the banking crisis.

Most of the story is told in first person from Deeta's perspective, but there are a few parts toward the end told from Tom's point of view in third person.

I was hoping to hear his voice in first person and think it would have added a lot to his character and the story.

I think there's a huge story waiting to be told with the financial crisis and societal breakdown. It would have helped me understood more about the tribes and compounds and how they formed.

I'd love for the background to be fleshed out, even if it was in flashbacks. Overall, BROKEN CITY breathes new life into the dystopian genre with its lack of plagues or zombie.

The plot behind this series is a very realistic situation, especially given the financial crisis we faced back in where thousands lost their jobs and the banks were bailed out by the government.

If you're looking for a dystopian novel without apocalyptic elements, then BROKEN CITY is the novel for you. Apr 12, Jemma rated it really liked it.

I thought it was a very interesting dystopian style story, in which the world has been upturned by a financial crisis and the survivors have reformed into modern style tribes, some peaceful and others not.

However I did feel the post-apocalyptic setting was quite undeveloped, as the central focus is really on the characters and the plot driving it forward.

I would have appreciated more of a foundation to the story, but I am hopeful that the next installment will provide that. Whilst I feel it did lack a certain thoroughness, it really did attempt to make up for it in character substance; the main characters are well thought out and very convincing.

Deeta and Tom in particular are both bold and appealing personalities, and the dynamics of their relationship are profound; all in all, they in particular made this a very attractive read.

And yet I find that the books greatest strength also became its weakness; after the initial part of the book I was almost comfortable with the set of characters dealt to me, and yet the author kept tossing more into the story.

I certainly felt that there was too many new people being continually introduced, each tailored with elaborate backstories and individual personalities — it got quite confusing.

It often felt irrelevant to the story and I wondered why they had been written in at all; but then again, there is more books to follow and the author could just be building a firmer foundation for blossoming characters.

Despite this, it was relatively easy to disregard the confusing array of subplots and focus on the main story, which flowed easily for the most part.

The ending was satisfying and had an all-round feel good vibe, and gave me the result I was hoping for. Overall I enjoyed it for what it was, an interesting and distinctive idea and I am looking forward to the next installment in the series.

Source: I was given a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to D. Deeta is not classified as strong enough to become a warden, which means that her entire life will be spent within the apartment block, and she will never get to go outside.

Tom, her best friend and upstairs neighbour, lives with Professo Source: I was given a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis.

Tom, her best friend and upstairs neighbour, lives with Professor Jepsjon, and 5 children who have all been rescued and unofficially adopted.

Intruders enter the apartment block, and kidnap one of the Jepsjon children — Dec. Tom then reveals some surprising news. He is in fact a member of the Andak family, as is Dec.

Tom explains that he is one of 17 sons, and that these sons are being picked of one by one by one of their own in an attempt to gain more power and wealth.

Tom and Dec have been hiding from the Andak family in a bid to stay safe. And what will Deeta think to her first trip outside the confines of the building she was born in?

This is an interesting YA dystopian. Deeta spent most of her time helping care for the Jepsjon family, even when her parents disapproved, and still wanted to help even when it was revealed who Tom really was.

She really went to great lengths to protect and care for the people she loved. I got the impression initially that Tom was secretly in love with Deeta, who remained pretty clueless, so it was interesting to see how this developed.

Tom was really sweet in the way that he always tried to protect and take care of Deeta, even when she had no idea how he felt about her.

In fact my guess was totally wrong! I did enjoy the final escape plan though! It will be interesting to see where the rest of the series goes. Overall; an interesting YA dystopian.

Warriors protect, and the weak and helpless, the untouched, are treasured—kept safe or kept prisoner, depending on your point of view.

The narrator of D. But Tom and her father forbid it. The novel opens with a ni D. Future history is swiftly and unobtrusively described through the eyes of Deeta, a young adult, unattached, whose voice is pleasingly normal—restless, unsure of the future, feeling the steady ache of wanting something more.

Still, when Deeta ends up imprisoned in a different world of post-apocalyptic contrasts, and death and murder loom, then the present tense narration lends a convincing immediacy.

For myself, I was surprised to learn how old Deeta was, but perhaps that just reflects my lazy reading. Parts of her world seemed so well-preserved I wanted to know how, but the author does a good job of not revealing or reveling in background, keeping the need for logical questioning at bay.

I was interested in, but not entirely convinced by the remnants of civilization, and I enjoyed the interplay of a large number of characters, the various separate worlds of a broken city, and the intriguing mystery of the hidden murderer.

A fun story with action, innocent romance, mystery, concern for neighbors, and children spared from danger, Broken City offers entertaining reading and intriguing food for thought.

Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy of this novel by the author. Aug 03, Mlpmom Book Reviewer rated it really liked it Shelves: kindle-books , author-request.

I had absolutely no expectations going into this one. Not because I didn't think it would be good but mainly because other than the synopsis I didn't know a lot about it or the author.

I can say now that I am so glad I took a chance and read this. I truly was completely entertained by it and it kept me turning the pages as I got caught up in the dystopian world that Chant created.

I have really been loving the dystopian genre a lot lately. I think mainly because in some many cases, so many of the I had absolutely no expectations going into this one.

I think mainly because in some many cases, so many of the scenarios the authors portray could really happen and this was one of those. The world building in this was subtle.

Nothing where too much is given way too soon. We get little info here and there and I really liked that. Sometimes we are given so much so soon that it is easy to feel lost or confused or just plan get information overload and lose interest in the story.

I am happy to say that wasn't the case at all with this book. Chant handled it very well and made it feel sometimes creepily so very real.

I quickly was caught up in the tribe's world and wanted to know more about them. How they worked and came together as families and how they survived the harsh world and government that surrounded them as well and fighting amongst the surrounding tribes.

There were some pretty great character in here that had a lot of depths as well as secrets. It was nice seeing how Deeta grew throughout this story.

How she went from a very shy meek character to a strong woman in the end. I loved watching her relationships grow and her tribe family was amazing.

Tom too was a great character. He grew as well and as the many layers of him peeled away and revealed his true form, it was nice getting to know him and truly see the real him underneath all the military training and secret life that he had to lead.

This was very well done and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another book by this author in the future. Jul 17, Kristin Blood,Sweat and Books rated it it was amazing.

I'm just going to cut right to the chase and say I Loved this book!! I honestly did not find one flaw within its pages.

The world that D. Chant built was so plausible especially considering the current economic climate. One thing I really enjoyed was how the Author set up the "bad guys".

I won't give it away but it reminded me of a classic boogeyman scenario and even I had trouble identifying the twist when it came. This book has no monsters or mutants just real people struggling to survive in I'm just going to cut right to the chase and say I Loved this book!!

This book has no monsters or mutants just real people struggling to survive in a Broken post modern world. I found the journey the characters each go through compelling, beautiful and haunting.

Deeta the main female protagonist was such an openly honest character that I can see why the other characters wanted to protect her.

My favorite character though was her sister Jan. She was bold, brave and not as naive as Deeta therefore I could relate to her a bit easier.

I also loved the slowly evolving relationship she has with Ryder, it was sweet but like a snakes mating dance it was fun to watch. Overall this was a great book with a well developed world, strong character driven plot and fantastic blending of Dystopian and Futuristic elements while remaining grounded in the real world.

If your a fan of the genre and looking for something new and unique, I highly suggest picking this book up. I will be rating Broken City by D.

All opinions are my own and I was not compensated in any way for them. Jun 17, Alisia rated it liked it. At the beginning of the book, it seemed like Deeta was telling us a story because she was talking directly to the reader.

I found this very interesting and i really liked it. I got to a major twist in the story then looked down to see how far into the book I was and was surprised to see I was only about half way through!

Then I was like YES I get to see what happens!! So much happens! Loved it. It did kind of remind me of The Hunger Games just without the Games.

There are different tribes that At the beginning of the book, it seemed like Deeta was telling us a story because she was talking directly to the reader.

There are different tribes that live in there own place and they do what they need to survive. Most of the tribes don't trust one another at first.

The story had more to it than the Hunger Games. Deeta is just so honest and caring. Tom is a man of little words. He is calm under pressure and thinks things through.

Writing a book that takes place in it's own world must be difficult to write because you have to come up with all new rules and people. If it takes place in our world its easy.

It impressive that authors can come up with so many details to bring a new world alive. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. At first, it took me a little to really get into it but after things finally got started, I was really into it.

Jul 15, Judy rated it it was amazing. Broken City by D. Chant Deeta Richards is twenty years old.

She was born, raised and will die in this building she calls home. She has no future but within these walls. Her comfort is caring for the Jepjon's family on the floor above.

One day when a secret has been revealed everything Deeta knows and believes is turned upside down. From the humorous to the vain to Tom who is just mysterious and hard to read.

The Tribes who all live their separate lives in the buildings around a city that is mostly destroyed. Never mixing with each other. Rumors that get worse each time they are told about certain Tribes.

Fear of the unknown. This story is told mainly through Deeta Richards view but does add the views of other characters where needed.

I am impressed with the two books this author has written. I read The Promise which takes place in Saxon England and then the author takes us to a post-apocalyptic almost futuristic time in Broken City.

Such extreme opposites and yet both are well written stories. Jul 27, Valentina rated it liked it. This is a wonderfully original view of a post-apocalyptic world, which is sure to be a big hit with all lovers of that style of books.

The world building the author has done really makes all the difference. We are not distracted from the main story. The characters are quite fun.

Tom, in particular, was one of the ones I liked best. He is quiet and mysterious, complete opposite to Deeta, the protagonist. Their interactions were written well.

The book did start off a bit slow, but as the story continued, the pace really picked up. There are many wonderful moments in the book that.

The writer uses a bit of one of my favorite literary techniques, the unreliable narrator, which is very hard to use convincingly and she succeeded, so she deserved definite credit for that.

All in all, this one is a fun addition to the dystopian genre and I do recommend it. Jun 19, Dani C. Paulette's Papers rated it it was amazing.

Broken City has to be one of the most captivating dystopia books I have read this year. The beautiful way it was written had me from the moment I started reading and I just could not put it down.

Deeta Richards has never left the building she was born in. She along with her family and the tribe they live with stay inside a building trying to stay safe.

Outside their building it is a whole other world. It is an unsafe and dangerous place where you may not come back from. All the while she dreams of seeing the outside of the building.

Unfortunately that may just happen… This is what I would consider a clean book and I would recommend it to any YA reader who likes adventure and a bit of romance.

Be prepared to not want to put it down until you are finished. Sep 07, J. Kahele rated it really liked it.

The author did a great job of creating a unique post-apocalyptic world that drew you in. I never really read a dystopian book before to be honest.

It was very interesting and engaging. I felt like Alice in Wonderland, amazed. She crafted some amazing characters, especially Deeta and now that I have read one, I will be moving on to two.

Apr 16, R. Askew rated it it was amazing. BROKEN CITY was the first ebook I have ever read - on a borrowed Kindle no less.

I enjoyed the novelty of using a Kindle and, far more importantly, the story itself. BROKEN CITY won my curiosity from the outset and held my attention to the end.

I found that the most notable feature of the read for me was how the story triggering all sorts of associations with other stories, historical events, and current issues.

It made me think. I was also curious to discover how a young writer such as D. Chant BROKEN CITY was the first ebook I have ever read - on a borrowed Kindle no less.

Chant views how society might evolve. While the story predicates some terrible event or sequence of events which destroy the fabric of society and so takes us to a new dark age where warring tribes are riven with Machiavellian power struggles and personal feuds, the response of the Deetina and those close to her is moral and gentle.

Some civil ways, including tea-drinking, chess playing, and social dances survive. And the young people have recognisable hopes and troubles as they face growing up and, especially, blossoming romantic feelings.

Dee is a likeable, moral, and seeminlgly well-adjusted character. She feels very normal, especially in the first few chapters. The dab where the kids are jumping up and down on their beds is absolutely familiar to us.

Life goes on. Taggart decides to investigate Mayor Hostetler for corruption. He goes to Lancaster's construction business and finds workers destroying documents.

Stealing some, he discovers that Bolton Village has been sold to build high-rise office buildings, rather than a new housing development, leaving hundreds homeless while Hostetler and Lancaster profit.

Taggart is pursued in a car chase by Hostetler's men, who run him off the road and take back the documents. Taggart visits Todd Lancaster, who says he had intended to give Andrews a copy of the demolition contract as evidence against Hostetler on the night Andrews was murdered, and gives Taggart the contract.

Taggart confronts Mayor Hostetler, who is unfazed, and reveals a video showing Taggart murdering Tavarez in cold blood. Taggart records their conversation of the mayor admitting to his own corrupt dealings.

Despite the risk of further prosecution for Taverez's murder, Taggart turns the recording over to Fairbanks. While Hostetler is at home celebrating a successful debate, Fairbanks arrives to arrest him, and tells the mayor that he was having an affair with Cathleen.

In the film's final scene, Taggart meets Fairbanks at a bar, and they toast to Valliant, who has won the election.

Katy comes in to say goodbye before the two men leave the bar. Broken City was directed by Allen Hughes and written by Brian Tucker.

In May , Mandate Pictures bought Tucker's unsolicited screenplay intending to hire a director and cast to film later in the year. Mudd to jointly produce one film per year, the first being Broken City.

The companies aimed to hire the cast and crew by late It became part of the film industry's black list of "best, albeit unproduced, screenplays.

Allen Hughes was attached to direct. Variety reported that Regency founder Arnon Milchan wanted to produce "edgier fare" like it previously did with the s films Heat and L.

Allen also directed the TV movie Knights of the South Bronx and a few episodes of the American version of the TV series Touching Evil.

Back in the day, when it was me and him, they could have had 15 people in the room, and they were all getting laid out. Broken City was released in 2, theaters in the United States and Canada on January 18 , Prior to Broken City ' s release, Variety reported that the film was estimated to have "a low to mid-teens opening" weekend.

Day on Monday. Broken City was released on DVD [17] and Blu-ray on April 30, It's just a very average movie - starting with the writing.

The story is just not all that interesting, and the script isn't saved at all by the directing. An all-around forgettable film. Broken City is one of the worst films Mark Wahlberg has done in a while.

I had no sympathy for him at all through the movie and Russell Crowe is fairly average as well. Wahlberg's motive is really not that well established and that makes the harder to watch as it goes along.

WhySoSerious54 Jun 19, Predictable and strangly poorly acted as well. I expected a lot more from these two. Maybe an aspect of a terrible script, screenplay, direction, I can go on and on.
