by Sally Ann Melia
Release Date: June 14th, 2015

 Synopsis: 13-year-old Teodor has found a way to escape from kidnap, how long before he is safely home?

13-year-old Guy Erma has run away from everything he has even known and no longer knows what the future holds.

They escaped through dark tunnels and back alleys but they also discovered a hidden terror that now threatens their entire planet.

Two boys as different as two boys might be. Their adventure has forged an unexpected friendship, but do they really trust each other?

Dare they share their darkest, deepest secrets?

Cindy's Review:
Exile picks up right after Hunter ends. Exile reveals the anticipated escape of Teodor and Guy Erma from the Dome. Along with solving some unanswered questions, Exile also pulled the empire and characters back together and solved the overall conflict of the series: the kidnap of Prince Teodor. But of course, there's a catch. Now there's another source of problem and Prince Teodor and with Guy Erma this time, are on a spaceship heading towards another planet. And there's a plague spreading wildly in Freyne 2. 

Prince Teodor is acting more grown up in Exile. Readers watch Teodor developing into a better character along the way. He put his authority to use and I'm very proud of him, but I feel like he is a bit young for his citizens to actually listened to him. Yes, he has his large cats as bodyguards, but the age 13 is still definitely a youngster and a kid can only be so wise. If Teodor was at least 15, I feel he would be portrayed as more mature, and more believable taking on his duties. 

One thing that left me still in the dust are the villains. I know Chart Segat is definitely a bad guy, but how about the others? And all those times when I was questioning if Chart Segat was really a bad guy. Plus, in the beginning, those letters showing us some sinister secret that's been going on. I'm still so confused. Who is the real antagonist here? There are so many possibilities!

I thought book #3 was going to be the final installment of the series, but it seems like there would be more novels coming out. 

Although the Guy Erma and the Son of Empire series is for the younger readers, I think older readers who enjoy adventure in a fantasy world will like this book. This series does seem to blast a lot of information in your face and I just get so confused at who these new characters are or what is happening or how the empire system works and all that, but that's what the glossary is for at the back. There is a characters/pronoun page explaining in detail of what every character is. That helped clear some confusion, but I feel like it could have been written in a less confusing way. For instance, the POV changes like every few paragraphs or pages and the only clue I have to the new POV are the separation of the paragraphs and a new voice telling their side of the story. I think this review was rather all over the place, so I can't really say it's easy to write something perfectly and easily understandable. 

Overall, though, Exile was a fun read for those younger ones. Those who seek for adventures and wild imaginations, here's a series for you~
