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

Selection

War has come to Atalanta, infecting its quiet villages and lush woodlands, igniting whispered worries in its glittering capitol.
All across the dominion, young men are being Selected for Military and sent to the front lines…and eighteen-year-old Aris Haan’s childhood sweetheart is one of them.

Secrets

Pyralis Nekkos, Atalanta’s leader, has kept the truth from his people, that their dominion will fall…and much sooner than anyone could guess.

Galena Vadim, his reluctant ally, wishes she could forget their shared past...until her future seems to depend on it.

Sacrifice

And for the boy she loves, Aris, a talented wingjet pilot, will give up everything - her home, her name, even her face...

...only to become the key to her dominion's survival.




I am so excited for this book! First, the cover is AMAZING!! It drew me in and had me in amazement! The cover is truly beautiful! It looks like its shaped as a charm bracelet, you know the kind that has different things to identify something? Well, it looks like each charm is telling it's own story, and I love that! Of course I could be wrong and it's none of the above, but that's the impression I got. So yes, the cover won me over, but the blurb is what sealed the deal and sold me on the book!

This quote below from the blurb is what caught my attention:

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

Makes you think, huh?

A story of love and war. Men forced to defend a country built on lies and deceit! A love that could conquer all? 

Bring it ON!!!




Tracy E. BanghartTracy 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.
