March 2016 NewGen Book of the Month.

Broken Sky is the stunning start to ‘The Broken Trilogy’, 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. It is nearly two thousand years after the clock restarted due to a terrible war and each country in the world is represented by pilots at the World for Peace complex. Rather than disagreements escalating to war, single Peacefighter pilots battle it out in the sky in a Peacefight, with the aim to win by shooting down the plane, not the pilot. 18 year old Amity is a Western Seaboard pilot, she is captivating and tenacious, the prologue throws her straight into action. L.A. Weatherly doesn't release all the information you need to know about this world straight away, she lets you piece it together, which brings a greater connection and understanding. 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.  ~ Liz Robinson

Broken Sky Synopsis

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?

Amity Vancour fights for peace, just like her father did, in a world where political disputes are fought by idolized teenage fighter pilots, and birth charts get passed around like secrets — deciding the fate of individuals, cities and states. As whispers of corruption begin to surface, and Amity’s belief in her beloved system begins to unravel, she must take to the skies or make a stand.

From the bestselling author of The Angel Trilogy, comes the first in a thrilling new trilogy set in a distorted echo of 1940s America.
