Blog Tour: Shattered Veil by Tracy E. Banghart- Top 10 List & Giveaway

Welcome to the Shattered Veil Blog Tour thanks to Xpresso Book Tours! I'm super excited to be showcasing Tracy E. Banghart's most recent release, the first book in her new Diatous Wars. I had the pleasure of reviewing Shattered Veil and loved it. This book was simply amazing and I'm dying for the next one!

Be sure to check out my 5 star review, posted yesterday as well as a Tracy's Top 10 Fictional Boyfriends. Oh, and there's also a to die for giveaway with some drool worthy swag. US only though--I'm totally jealous!

For Aris, a talented wingjet pilot, war means sacrificing everything: her home, her name, her face—and the one promise she swore she’d never break.

In the small village of Lux, everyone flies wingjets, but nobody flies them like Aris Haan. When she’s not dancing through the skies, she’s spending every minute with Calix, whom she’s loved since childhood. They plan to Promise, but instead he is sent to defend their dominion against a bloody invasion. Determined not to lose him, Aris follows, joining an underground network of women inside the male-only military. Using secret technology that allows her to pass as a man, she becomes “Aristos”, a Flyer in a search-and-rescue unit.

As Aris grows stronger on the battlefield and more comfortable in her guise as Aristos, her personal mission becomes less and less clear. When she and her enigmatic commander, Major Vidar, uncover an astonishing conspiracy that could destroy everything, she must make a choice that will determine not only the fate of her heart, but the future of her dominion.

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.
