Overview

Seventeen-year-old Lisen Holt only begins to realize that her life is fractured after a sorcerer abducts her from a California beach and brings her home to Garla. She awakens at Solsta Haven, a refuge for the spiritual members of Garlan society known as hermits. The sorcerer, Hermit Eloise, has returned Lisen's body to its true form--human-like with a marsupial pouch. She then restores Lisen's memory of her first ten years in Garla, leaving her earthly existence behind but not forgotten. Although she is Lisen of Solsta now, questions haunt her, questions Eloise refuses to answer. Who are the parents who left her at Solsta? Why did Eloise send her to Earth? And what is so important about her that Eloise has manipulated so much of her life? The answers will propel Lisen into a quest for a throne, and all that will stand between her and her birthright is her matricidal twin of a brother.

    Lisen Holt’s quintessential life as a seventeen year old teenager from Woodland Hills abruptly changed when a strange monk-like woman abducted her. Now she has to deal with a foreign world of Garla – her original world, her real home. But Lisen doesn’t feel that way, even when she gains back her old memories and her true identity as Lisen of Solsta. Lisen has enough on her plate with the mind-blowing turn of events, but clearly Eloise, the hermit that took her in the first place, has different ideas. Lisen of Solsta has to deal with a bigger destiny.

    "Fractured" is one of the best fantasy books I have read so far and I feel absolutely fortunate to find this book. D. Hart St. Martin is my new favorite author. Lisen Holt is no damsel in distress. She is a bright, brave young woman with a wry sense of humor, dragged from one world to another to confront her destiny. This is refreshing and inspiring for a female reader like me, and tagging along in her quest is truly a blast. The other characters – Elios, Titus, Flandari – are amazingly developed characters, each having his or her own pertinent place in the story. The enchanting fantasy world of Garla is believable and well-written. Imagining the story is delightfully easy, like watching a film. Not to mention the marsupial-like body; a funny and somewhat gimmicky human anatomy's revision that works for the story.
