Overview

Fall of the Cities - Planting the Orchard by Vance Huxley

The world is falling apart.

Terrorists spark a worldwide oil and gas crisis while imports grind to a halt. Europe and Britain are erupting into chaos as food runs out and desperate people take matters into their own hands.

As the government begins to seal off rioting parts of the city, Corporal Harry Miller takes an offered discharge to get his sister and her kids to safety. But he's not fast enough. Trapped in the city with a rag-tag collection of ordinary citizens, Harry struggles to create a small pocket of stability - a place to ride out the coming confrontation between rioters and the Army, and save themselves from complete annihilation.

About the Author

Vance Huxley lives out in the countryside in Lincolnshire, England. He has spent a busy life working in many different fields - including the building and rail industries, as a workshop manager, trouble-shooter for an engineering firm, accountancy, cafe proprietor, and graphic artist. He also spent time in other jobs, and is proud of never being dismissed, and only once made redundant.

Eventually he found his Noeline, but unfortunately she died much too young. To help with the aftermath, Vance tried writing though without any real structure. As an editor and beta readers explained the difference between words and books, he tried again.

Now he tries to type as often as possible in spite of the assistance of his cats, since his legs no work well enough to allow anything more strenuous. An avid reader of sci-fi, fantasy and adventure novels, so his writing tends towards those genres.

Corporal Harold Miller has returned home from Kuwait. But when he gets to London, terrorist attacks and riots have turned everything on end and caused severe shortages. Harry is determined to get to his widowed sister and two kids to try and keep them safe. When he gets to her apartment complex, everyone basically votes for him to lead them and keep them safe from the roving gangs. The little group tries to make it for the border of London and the military border to try and setup a new, safer home. They try to make a new home but quickly learn that they are not going to be able to simply go back to how things were, especially being cut off from the rest of the world. But they are going to fight for peace because there is no other option. I am a huge fan of dystopian and apocalyptic stories and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. This book has a feel of two books in one. The first portion of this book talks about Harry and getting back home from Kuwait. Then things go to hell and He is bound and determined to try and keep his sister and her kids safe. Harry is a great lead character. He is strong and willing to fight for those he cares for. And the more you read about him the more you will be cheering him and his little group on. I loved this book and am beyond happy that it is the first in a series. I can’t wait to get the second book and continue this journey with Harry. I received Fall of the Cities: Planting the Orchard from Silver Dagger Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
