Shattered Veil (The Diatous Wars #1)

When everything that defines you is stripped away, who do you become?

War has invaded Atalanta’s quiet villages and lush woodlands, igniting whispered worries in its glittering capitol. Far from the front lines, 18-year-old Aris Haan, a talented wingjet flyer, has little cause for concern. Until her beloved Calix is thrust into the fray, and a stranger makes her an impossible offer: the chance to join a secret army of women embedded within the all-male military.

Aris’s choice to follow Calix to war will do more than put her in physical danger; it will make her question everything she believes about herself. When she and her enigmatic commander uncover a deadly conspiracy, her expert flying may be the only hope for her dominion’s survival…and her own.

It’s Mulan meets Battlestar Galactica, with a heroine who is strong enough to save a nation…but only if she’s willing to sacrifice everything, even the one promise she swore she’d never break.

 My Review:

Great book. I couldn’t put it down. There are some great twists and turns. I love the characters and the world Tracy has created. Aris is a great main character. The decisions she makes and the situations she is thrown into help to shape her into the person she becomes by the end of the book. Great ending. I wasn’t expecting that. I would highly recommend it to everyone. I look forward to reading more of Tracy’s books.

Author Bio

Tracy E. Banghart is a cheesy movie–loving, fantasy football–playing (go Ravens!), globe-trotting Army wife who began “practicing” her craft at the age of five, when she wrote her first story. She loves visiting the international friends she met while pursuing her MA in Publishing and spends a portion of every summer at her family’s cabin in Canada, where she finds inspiration and lots of time to relax on the dock. She lives with her husband, son, two lazy dogs and one ornery cat. When not writing or spending time with her family, she is on a mission to bake the perfect cupcake.  Check out her site here.

    Mulan and Battlestar Galactica – what an interesting combo! Sounds interesting, to be sure!

    I don’t know if your “Creative Mind” ever does book vs. movie reviews, but if so I’d like to invite you to enter the “‘Book vs. Movie” contest I’m hosting over at my blog! There’s a movie gift card involved (feel free to take a book with you if you want), and I’d love to see what you come up with! http://wp.me/P4enVm-Q
