Shattered Veil is a winner in the NA Sci-fi/Fantasy Genre!
When everything that defines you is stripped away, who do you become?
It’s starts off slow, but not boring. We’re slowly introduced to the world and characters which helps once you go further into the story. The author created a completely organic story that makes it practically impossible not to be sucked in.
Aris was a wonderful and well-developed character. At first, she can come across as immature and childish but as the story progressed you really saw some growth. It was one of the things that made Aris such a believable character.
She decided to give up her hole life, her identity for someone she cared for. And although it wasn’t so well thought out, she had good intentions and incredible strength.
Milek… he’s a book boyfriend to look out for. He was extremely patient as he and Aris begin to form a bond. There was a subtle romance but Aris wasn’t ready for a relationship and it would have felt forced if the author pushed them together so quickly. I definitely see something in the future but for now, I’m content with where their relationship is.
I’m desperate for book two and can’t wait to read more on what’s going to happen!

Book description: 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.
About the author: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.
