 Orange City is a dystopian read that has an interesting premise. There is a secret world where criminals get a second chance. They are also at the mercy of the Man, who is trying to replicate the vison of Stalin. He rules over the world and controls everything that goes on. Graham has been working tirelessly for the Man for many years. Suddenly, he finds himself at the forefront of the Man's game. He has developed a new drink that alters moods based on the color of the drink. The more Graham consumes the more he wants to destroy the Man.

I did think this book was a little slow to start, but it picked up midway through. I can't wait to see what happens in book 2. 

Thank you to Blackthorn Book Tours, Atmosphere Press and Netgalley for the #gifted copy of this book.
