I’m so excited to be a part of the release for Exiles!!! Jaye is one of my favorite authors and I’m so glad to be able to help with the release of this amazing book.

 

 

About the Book

Exiled after their defeat in Samara, the Resistance struggles to find allies in their quest to restore King Balen to his throne and put an end to the emperor’s tyranny. When the crete people refuse to lend their aid, Balen leads a group to Dorland to reason with them and win their support. However, enemies prove to be everywhere, and they find themselves in a fight to keep Dorland from becoming Daican’s latest conquest.

Back in Landale, the arrival of a new enemy forces Trask and Anne to tread more carefully than ever. Tensions are rising, and the enemy is determined to test Anne’s loyalty and root out the location of Trask and the Resistance once and for all.

Feeling trapped within the walls of Valcré, Prince Daniel must contend with an ever-eroding relationship with his father. As their clashes escalate, the situation becomes potentially life threatening when his loyalty is called into question. His sister seems bent on branding him a traitor and actively seeking to condemn him to the fate of those put to death in their father’s new arena. Daniel is certain his father would never execute his only son and heir but, with other forces at work, it might not be that simple.

One small misstep could prove fatal for all.

My Review

Since this book promised more of Prince Daniel’s story–I’ll be brutally honest–I wasn’t terribly excited. Daniel was never a favorite character, and I didn’t care too much about what happened to him. But Jaye masterfully wove Daniel’s tale within streaks from our other favorite characters, and I soon found myself loving him just as much. There was a lot in this book that made me have to step back and breathe for a long minute, thinking “I SO did not see that coming.” Especially the ending!!! EEEKKKKKK!!!!

Something I didn’t like so much was how slow the first half of the book was. It reminded me a little of Resistance in that I wasn’t glued to the book. Don’t get me wrong, it was good, but it wasn’t absolutely gripping.

Enter the halfway point.

*screams*

You’ll need a seatbelt, believe me. It was nonstop action from there on out! So many unexpecteds. So many surprises. So many shocks. Oh my heart.

Overall, I recommend this book (and the rest of the series) 100%. YOU. MUST. READ. IT. *shoves towards books*
