Tom Clancy’s The Division: Recruited – Thomas Parrott Book Tour

Hey Loves!

Today is very exciting. I’m part of my first ever book tour!! I really was so thrilled to be considered and I’ve loved every second. Thanks so much Aconyte Books! I loved the sound of this one so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I really hope you enjoy it too!

What’s it all about?
This is a dystopian novel about a future ravaged by a virus…. I know! Close to home. However, this is not a book that bears any resemblance to the current situation with COVID-19. In this bleak vision of the future a virus, sometimes referred to the Dollar Flu or the Green Poison, has ravaged society across the globe causing total system collapse.

We start the story with our heroine, Maira Kanhai, living with a group of other survivors in a community they call Athena. Life is tough, they scavenge food to survive, a watch is kept day and night to avoid other groups who are willing to take by force what they might want. But Athena is slightly isolated from the mad violence that exists in the city, they are on the outskirts. As the months go by it gets harder and harder to find food.

Maira decided not to dance around the subject. “As some of you may already know, and others may have heard, we have a supply situation on our hands.”

Maria’s previous service in the Navy has led her to being nominated as Chief of Security for their little community but it also means she has carried the blame and anger from some when things haven’t worked out. In an ill fated attempt to secure weapons with which to protect themselves, Maira led a number of volunteers into an ambush which resulted in the deaths of a number of community members – that night still haunts her and eats away at her conscience.

As the community seeks further afar for food they attract the attention of a murderous gang called the Outcasts. The outcasts claim to carry the virus and want to infect all the survivors. They are violent, aggressive and attack the Athena community. Despite the defences Maira has established, the Outcasts quickly force them fall back. It becomes clear they cannot hold out but then help arrives. Three agents from the mysterious and secretive Division use their hi tech government weapons to defeat the Outcast attack although not without losses of their own.

Maira stared. Her mouth worked silently. At last, she managed to rasp into the radio. “South post is gone. The way to Athena is wide open. Anyone with a gun, we need you. Now.

The Division agents were not there to save Athena, they are also concerned about the supply situation. They believe something is blocking the roads and supply routes. Their mission is to get supplies moving into the city again. Carrying the weight of yet more deaths under her command, Maira volunteers to join them, hoping to bring the food Athena desperately needs.

The novel tracks the progress of Maira and the Division agents as they track down the problem. As you might expect things get tough, maybe even desperate at times. They uncover totally unexpected problems and also make new allies who will work to help them.

The story is fast paced and as the plot moves along we get to understand what motivates Maira as well as uncovering more of her past. Details about the shadowy Division and the agents they employ begin to emerge, are they the good guys they at first appeared? In order to find out you’ll need to read it, I’m pretty sure you won’t be bored.

Final Thoughts
Well, there you have it! My first book tour. How exciting!! I really hope you enjoyed this one as much as I did. I can’t wait to be a part of more of these in the future. It’s a really wonderful way to connect with more wonderful readers and share some great books.

Big love all xxx
