Shattered Veil
Tracy E. Banghart
(The Diatous Was #1)
Published: February 28th, 2014
Genres: YA/NA, Dystopian
When everything that defines you is stripped away, who do you become?


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.


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.


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.

Top 10 Favorite Books/Authors OR Authors That Inspired You To Want To Become A Writer? 

1. On Fortune's Wheel, Cynthia Voigt
2. A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens
3. The Blue Sword, Robin McKinley
4. The Secret Circle trilogy, L. J. Smith
5. The Near Witch, Victoria Schwab
6. Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins
7. Fire in the Mist, Holly Lisle
8. Outlander, Diana Gabaldon
9. Sunshine, Robin McKinley
10. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen

Some of these books, like A Tale of Two Cities and The Blue Sword, inspired me to want to be a writer. Others, like The Near Witch and Anna and the French Kiss, showed me how beautifully written YA novels could be, and a couple, like The Secret Circle and Fire in the Mist, are just plain fun reads that I can read over and over and still love. I'd say On Fortune's Wheel does all of these things for me - it inspired me when I was young, and it's a book I come back to often now as an adult, because it's such an incredibly imaginative, well-written story.
