Today on my blog I have The Dark Intercept tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, and giveaway.
The State controls your emotions. What would you pay to feel free?
In a radiant world of endless summer, the Intercept keeps the peace. Violet Crowley, the sixteen-year-old daughter of New Earth’s Founding Father, has spent her life in comfort and safety. Her days are easy thanks to the Intercept, a crime-prevention device that monitors and provokes emotion. But when her long-time crush, Danny Mayhew, gets into a dangerous altercation on Old Earth, Violet launches a secret investigation to find out what he's hiding. An investigation that will lead her to question everything she's ever known about Danny, her father, and the power of the Intercept.
This is definitely a different type of dystopian book. It has an original concept of old and new Earth plus a device that is suppose to be a prevention of crime. I really enjoyed the story even though I was kinda of lost at times almost as if it was the second or third book in the series. I am gonna have to go back and reread it again to fully understand this book. Overall it's a good book even though I was confused which I does happen when I read dystopian books. 3/5 Bloody Fangs
