Description

Welcome to a 'perfect' world. Where war is illegal, where harmony rules. And where your date of birth marks your destiny. But nothing is perfect. And in a world this broken, who can Amity trust? Set in a daring and distorted echo of 1940s America, the BROKEN trilogy is an exhilarating epic of deception, heartbreak and rebellion.

Amity is a teen pilot, battling in one-on-one combat to maintain peace in a world where war has been replaced by dogfights. But when Amity discovers the organisation she works for is corrupt, she begins to question everything. In this society of double agents, suspicion and betrayal, nobody is quite what they seem ...

The first in a brand-new YA trilogy with an exhilarating mix of irresistible romance, breath-taking action and thrilling mystery. Effortlessly fuses the old-style glamour of 1940s America with the corrupt menace of a futuristic world in a hugely original twist on the steampunk genre - Blitzpunk.

Critic Reviews

'Written with Weatherly's trademark style, suspense, creativity and energy, this is a gripping, fascinating thriller peopled with seductive characters caught up in extraordinary events and perilous times.' - Lancashire Evening Post; 'An intriguing and wonderful mix of dystopian fantasy linked with disconcerting reflections of history and military, plus it's full of thrills, suspense, espionage and romance... I found myself completely immersed in this fascinating and original novel and quite simply didn't want to come up for air, I loved it and can't wait for the second in the series.' - LoveReading4Kids; 'One thing that I love about this book among a million other reasons are the characters... Amity - She's my girl. Not the typical YA heroine and that makes it even better. She's straightforward and brave. She stands up to what is right even if it means risking her life' - Miriam is Reading; 'Action, romance, heartbreak, betrayal, agonising guilt and heartstopping tension: Broken Sky has it all. Oh, and fascinatingly detailed Spitfire dogfights. And delightful future-historical period detail. And TWISTS; dear Lord, the twists. And by the way, it's more than suitable for fully-grown adults as well as young ones' - Awfully Big Reviews
