Skye is part of the Society, the hi-tech, nanite-endowed group responsible for making sure that the millions of surviving people-grubbers-are confined to the ancient, decaying cities where they can be watched to ensure they aren't redeveloping the weapons technology that came so close to extinguishing life on the planet.
When the Society's monitoring programs pick up troubling developments in one of the grubber cities, Skye is ordered in to deal with the man responsible, but what-and who-she finds once she arrives will change everything.

About the Author
Dean started reading seriously in the second grade due to a competition and has spent most of the subsequent three decades lost in other people's worlds.
Things worsened, or improved depending on your point of view, when he first started experimenting with writing while finishing up his accounting degree. These days Dean has a wonderful wife and two lovely daughters to keep him more grounded than he used to be, but the idea of bringing others along with him as he meets interesting new people in universes nobody else has ever seen drags him back to his computer on a regular basis.

The Society is a fantastic first installment in Dean Murray's new A Broken World trilogy. I was so excited to find out that he had started a dystopian series and this book did not let me down! This book had my attention from the very beginning and I was sorry when it came to the end, because I can't wait for the next book in the series to find out how the situation that we leave Skye in turns out. Skye was born to be a rule follower, to pay her dues in the hopes that one day, all her hard work and sacrifice would pay off big time. She gets her wish when she is chosen to receive a set of enhancements to her system that will be necessary for her to complete a dangerous mission to remove a threat to the Society's way of life. But as she is dropped into the thick of things in the grubber cities, she will find out that things are not necessarily what she has been led to believe. What if everything she has been taught is not exactly the truth? What if the people you have been taught to fear have good in them after all? Skye will have to decide whether she can follow the mission the way it is expected of her, or if perhaps there is another way. Skye is a definitely a character you can get behind and root for, as are many of the central characters along the way. The attention to detail and character development is fantastic, I can easily picture the people and scenes in my mind as I am reading. Take a chance on this great new series and you will not be disappointed! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
