Fracture by D.D. Chant Book Spotlight


In a world torn apart by war and divided into three nations Astra struggles to achieve balance. As a child she experienced a horror that caused her life to fracture around her, changing in an instant everything she’d ever known.

Sixteen years later and Astra has been pressured into a false position by her past and is forced into taking a stand that enables her to keep her loved ones safe, but the cost is high.

Caught in an intolerable position Astra is loyal to only one thing: the family that loves her. But when a diplomatic mission from the Free Nation arrives for peace talks with the Tula, Astra’s precariously balanced world begins to fracture again


4.5 Stars

Ben  Burton arrives with his father Senator Phillip Burton to learn more about the country of Una and hopefully bridge a gap of trust between the two countries.  Astra is assigned to Ben and his father, while the women all see to share the same distant demeanor, something intrigues Ben about Astra, perhaps it is the secrets she has kept closely guarded.

Astra Uel Ne Toban is a survivor, she has done everything she can to adhere to the customs of the Una, even though she is not one of them.  When a threat is a apparent, everything Astra has fought for will vanish and a new path in her life will begin.  As she has a new ally in Kai by her side,  the changes in her life are rapid and unexpected.

This story had a lot of layers to it, I thought Fracture  had a way of taking the reader and placing them inside the story with it’s visual descriptions.  Although this is outside of my comfortable genres, I found myself drawn in right away and thought it was an excellent story.  Look forward to reading the next in the series. 

Author bio: 

Hi everyone! 
My name is Dee Dee, I’m twenty six and I live in a beautiful part of Devon, England with my family. I have a younger sister, Amy who is a brilliant guitar player, 2 springer pups (Jessie and Sparky) 4 sheep (Jack, Phillip, Emily and Josephine) some chickens, ducks, geese, pheasants, a cat (that adopted us when we moved in!!!) and some Koi.

Broken City is actually my second novel. My first, as my Aunt so delicately put it, was crazy but in my defence I was only sixteen at the time. On the plus side I learnt a lot (or so I hope) and two years later ‘Broken City’ was finished. Due to the support I have received from everyone I am almost finished the next book in the Broken City series! 

 ‘The Promise’ is the first book in my second series, The Lady Quill Chronicles and is set in Saxon England, and I have just released my third book 'Fracture', first book in The Chronicles Of Discord, which is set in the distant future.

I really hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
Apart from writing, I also love reading and have a kindle: I read almost anything with adventure and romance in it! I also like to cook and wear impractical high heels!!! And as you might have noticed I have a horrible addiction to exclamation marks!!!
