In a Broken City, filled with warring tribes, lives:
    A girl with no future
    A man with no past
    A little lost boy
    And those who seek to find him....
    ....Welcome to Deeta's world.
    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.....
Pretty good start to a story. Makes me want to go onto next chapter to find out what happens.
Ooo, I'm liking the concept of the story! If you haven't asked yet I have a thing for dystopian and post-apocalyptic novels.
