My Review:

The people of Cueva live underground in caves in rooms carved out of the mountain. The people of Cueva live underground in the dark away from the deadly sun because it causes cancer. The children live on one side of the cave while the adults live on the other side.

When they reach eighteen they get to visit Purenet a city that is protected by a dome which allows the people to be outside to enjoy the sun along with the green grass and trees without causing them any problems.

The people of Cueva have choice to make when they reach eighteen; girls have the choice of becoming a Host or a Bazi to earn bitcoins; boys have the option of becoming a Bazi or entering the Sanction Games to earn bitcoins as well. Skylier and her brother Rian want to earn bitcoins so they can buy medicine to cure their mother who is dying of cancer.

I love reading dystopian novels and I have to say that The Deadly Sun has been one of the best that I have read so far and I can’t wait to check out the next book in the series The Rising Tide and then the third book The Sanction Games.

The Deadly Sun grabbed me from the beginning and didn’t let go until I turned the last page. I read it in one setting or should I say I devoured it in one setting. Now that is more like it. I loved the world of Cueva and Purenet.

The Deadly Sun is filled with more twist and turns than a roller coaster. It will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what is just around the next corner. Skylier and Dax are two of the strongest characters I think I have seen in a long, long time. Oh and I just loved Callie she was just amazing and so sweet.

I would recommend The Deadly Sun to anyone who loves reading a great and fantastic dystopian novel. It is out of this world amazing.

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.
