New Release: 4.5 Stars for Reign of Crowns by Dani Hart!

Title: Reign of Crowns
Series: Dupree Heights #1
Author: Dani Hart
Genre: Young Adult Dystopian
Release Date: April 6, 2017
One hundred years ago cyber technology evolved rapidly. Human interaction diminished as the need to leave home became obsolete. Doors closed and cities shut down, causing a tsunami of destruction. Humans were replaced with computers, the homeless rate increased exponentially, and families starved in the abandoned streets. The weak and poor died, the middle working class fell to the lower class, and the wealthy rose above everyone. The world was imploding from the inside out with no reprieve in sight.

My story begins on the fiftieth anniversary of a city raised from the ashes of a revolution and a name forged in the decay of innocent lives. With my heart pulled in two different directions, I am forced to make a choice to either walk in my mother’s footsteps to a scripted future and a perfect life, leaving my first love behind, or complete my father’s unfinished journey of redeeming the Dupree name.

 

My Review:

4.5 Stars!!

Dani Hart continues to impress me with her thoughtful and romantic YA novels! I’ll admit, I wasn’t sure what to expect going into Reign of Crowns, but after reading the words The End, I wanted more of this world, these characters!

I’m not sure how to classify this book. I guess dystopian is probably the best classification. It is set in the “future,” years in the future after a massive cyber attack that changed everything. Our heroine, Josephine, is the granddaughter of the man who worked to bring life back to normal. In the process, he basically created a world of the haves and the have-nots. Josephine is part of the Haves. She has been isolated in her house and now must be part of the Debutantes ceremony. Yep, it’s exactly like you’re thinking it is, but with a little twist.

There is a sweet romance between Josephine and Gray, a boy who was tapped to be her debutante escort. But, we all know how these things work, right? He plays an important role in her life as her first love and more.

I am telling you, this is one clever story with romance, intrigue, a bit of danger and some pertinent social commentary that will have you saying “hmmm.”
