My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I found Exile to be an intriguing read that flowed nicely in the way the knowledge of the situation was given to the reader. The characters are realistic and you find yourself caring for their well being. You can tell immediately that the main characters are from a different time or location due to their speech, but it’s not difficult to read. The author also has a unique voice that works well for him. The novel is thorough and intelligent and is one of the first novels I have read in this genre. I picked the novel up because I read about it on Library Thing and it sounded very interesting–it was! I’m glad that I chose to expand my typical reading pool and can’t wait for the next installment! The ending worked very well, as it wrapped up the story nicely, but still left the reader wanting more.
I believe that the star system should allow for .5 stars, and if it did I would give this 4.5 stars, but because it doesn’t I am giving it 5 stars because it accomplished its job well–it made me want more!
