Seventeen-year-old Lisen Holt realizes her life is Fractured after a sorcerer abducts her from a California beach and brings her back home to Garla, a world where treating men and women differently is unthinkable. Lisen awakes at Solsta Haven. Eloise has returned Lisen’s body to its true form—human-like—but like all male and female Garlans, she possess a pouch similar to Earth’s marsupials. Eloise then restores Lisen’s memory of her life in Garla, but her earthly existence will remain a substantial influence which, though left behind, will never be forgotten.
Although she is Lisen of Solsta now, questions haunt her which Eloise refuses to answer. Who left her at Solsta? Why did Eloise send her to Earth? And what is so important about Lisen that Eloise felt it necessary to manipulate so much of her life? The answer will propel Lisen into a quest for a throne, a quest that will threaten to fracture her soul, and all that will stand between her and her birthright will be her matricidal twin brother.
D. Hart St. Martin (her real name, honest) opened her eyes to life in La Jolla, California during the baby boom. She grew up in the Los Angeles suburb of Pomona where she serves as editor of her high school year book. She also played the grandfather (gender switched to grandmother) in “Guys and Dolls” as there were barely enough “guys” for Nathan Detroit’s band of merry thugs. Throughout high school, she and her best friend constantly made up stories and sometimes even wrote them down. In her late twenties, she devoted three years to writing the very first draft of her very first book. She continued to write, finishing what was then a very different trilogy from today’s version as well as working on a rock-and-roll Faust which she hopes to rework and publish one day. Now, thirty-five years later, she has published Fractured and Tainted, volumes 1 & 2 of Lisen of Solsta trilogy.
On a personal note, I've read both of these books and I've given the well deserved 5 STARS of pure awesomeness. These books are worth more than their price tags. If you do wisely decide to purchase these masterpieces, please show Hart love and leave a review, just 20 words.
Happy Reading Everyone!
