    1 thought on “The Exile”

    1. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads3.5 starsSo. THE EXILE got off to a bit of a rocky start for me. Actually, that's not true. The very, very beginning was excellent. There was a truly spectacular prologue involving the High King of the Fae and this really cool Fates/triple-faced goddess mashup person . . . YES. That does sound awesome, doesn't it?BUT. Between the awesome prologue and the first 7 chapters, there were 7 POV changes, and 6 different POVs.That's a lot. Even for me, and I'm used to the multipl [...]

    2. 3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2015/03/29/bC.T. Adams has written books as Cat Adams, a dual-partnership writing team with Cathy Clamp. I’ve never read anything by either author before, so I was looking forward to starting out with Ms. Adams’ first solo full-length novel The Exile, especially since I love stories about the fae.The protagonist Brianna Hai lives a double life as necessitated by her own very nature. By day the half-human, half-fae young woman runs an occult s [...]

    3. Mon avis en FrançaisMy English reviewI have a major weakness when it comes to faes so when I saw the novel, I was immediately intrigued. All this was confirmed as soon as I started reading it and when I was completely swept away by the story.I was a little surprised at first because the format is a little different from what is usually found in urban fantasy. Indeed, we follow here the POV of several characters moving around Brianna, though she remains central and recurring in the history compa [...]

    4. Brianna is half fae, half human and lives in the human world away from the politics of court. She isn't on the list of potential heirs to the thrown, but has had a few run ins with people trying to kill her anyways and she really doesn't get along with most fae, so she stays away from the Fae world. That is until someone decides to attack her home, which sends her into Fae to recover what was stolen from her. Even though she is careful not to break any rules, it draws her back into the politics [...]

    5. Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.Though the beginning is a bit rocky, THE EXILE is a fast-paced race of a book, full of twists and turns and a great new world to explore. From the great cover which drew me in to the last chapter, I delighted in this book and am so thrilled it's a new series I get to followE EXILE is one of those types of books that takes a little effort to really get into, but once you're in, you're sucked into the world completely. Told from quite a few points of vie [...]

    6. I have never read a Cat Adams book, but we used to have a reviewer on the PT team who LOVED the writing duo. So, when I saw that one half of the duo, C.T. Adams, had written her first solo book, I decided to give it a try. And I was not disappointed! I have no frame of reference for comparison, so I cant tell you if The Exile was anything like the writing style of Cat Adams, though.From a technicality front, The Exile was very well written. The story line was thought out in great detail and wove [...]

    7. I was pleasantly surprised because I normally don’t care for Fae stories. This was interesting and a good start to a series.Brianna Hai is the half human half fae princess of King Liu but she lived in the human realm as her fae siblings were constantly trying to eliminate her as a possible heir to their father’s throne. Brianna’s mother escaped to the human realm and they opened up a store selling antiques and other various trinkets. All of sudden Brianna starts getting attacked by pixies [...]

    8. This is so not my usual sort of reading, but I won it from Tor, so it cost nothing to try.It's paranormal romance, but light on the romance. (the blurb says "urban fantasy", but I hate that tag for novels where there's little to nothing "urban" about it).Brianna Hai is, of course, the daughter of a faerie king. So, fairly predictable but quite entertaining.

    9. Loved this book's portrayal of Faerie and the different kinds of allies (and enemies) of the fae. Great characters and storyline. My only downside was that the ending felt rushed. A LOT left dangling to resolve in the next book. Hope we don't have a long wait--it'll definitely go to the top of my TBR pile.

    10. A scene where a POC kid is killed by an officer and the officer has a monologue about how he is going to be 'pilloried' by the press. Call me too sensitive but I felt that this scene trivializes the very real racial struggle currently going on in America. I wasn't enjoying the book too much beforehand and now I am completely shoved out of the narrative. A DNF for me.

    11. Today's post is on The Exile by C. T. Adams. It is 318 pages long and is publicized by TOR. It is the first in her The Fae series. The cover has the main character in looking at the reader with another character in the background. The intended reader is someone who likes urban fantasy and good writing. There is some language, no sex, and violence in this book. The story is told from third person close of the different characters moving as needed from chapter to chapter. There Be Spoilers Ahead.F [...]

    12. I loved absolutely everything about this book, and can't wait for future installments in this series!The first and best thing about this book is Brianna. Not only is she a strong, smart female lead character, she is a good person too. When you are a member of the royal family of Faerie, that is no small feat, and it upped Bri several notches for me as a character I can connect to and love.I also liked the take of the author on the version of the Fae world she created. It is well in line with muc [...]

    13. If you love reading about the Fae that you find in the Merry Gentry series by Laurell Hamilton but would prefer no sex…at least so far - you are in for a treat with this book. The worlds are quite similar. So is some of the story-line. The exception is that there is no Dark Court and no Light Court – there is only one Sidhe High court and High King, but there are the other types of Fae that we’ve come to understand from other books. The romance is very much lacking in this first book, but [...]

    14. Brianna Hai is a Fae princess, living a relatively normal life on the human side of The Veil to avoid the politics and dangers of Sidhe court intrigue. But Brianna and her human (and gargoyle) friends soon find themselves embroiled in the very power struggles she sought to avoid.Like Brianna, readers will find themselves sucked in to Faerie - but in a good way. You won’t be able to put this book down. Author C.T. Adams does a fine job taking the creatures and tropes of urban fantasy, and putti [...]

    15. LOVED! I should have been studying but in the end this book was waaay better! LOL Urban Fantasy is my favorite kind of books so I was super pleased for a new series coming out and it was a great book for starting this world!It had a lot of action,great did I say GREAT characters ( KING LEU I LOVE YOU WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO ME) and the story was so much thrilling!Brianna was an excellent heroine,she showed strenght,compassion and I CANT WAIT FOR HER AND NICK HOOK UP OKAY? I DONT CARE,I WANT MY RO [...]

    16. I liked the characters and the setting, though I was more interested in what was happening in Faerie than on earth. Brianna was really cool and I liked David and Nick, though I'm not sure about Nick being a prospective love interest for Brianna, we haven't see enough of them together. One thing, though: Sometimes, it felt like chunks of text were missing, like there were connections we should've made, things we should've known Like, how did Adam get to earth at the end? Or where did the pixie wi [...]

    17. I think, the cover is more interesting than the book! The plot is nice, but the way it's developed was weak. The whole time, the author was worried to give emphasis about how fit is Brianna. All the time, making sure to the readers keep in mind that Brianna loves to work out! That was soooo silly! And Brianna acts like a badass, but a "sweet" badass! Her smile, her lovely way to treat her sister Lucienne boooring! I don't know, i think the whole concept the author gave to Fae here was weak. Bria [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this first in a series by C.T. Adams, half of the Cat Adams duo responsible for the Blood Singer series. In The Exile, Brianna is the half-human daughter of the fae king, who gets quickly embroiled in intrigue when she is attacked in her home by fae creatures, and ends up in the other world with two humans in tow - her employee, David, and his brother, Nick. It becomes all the more complicated getting back when Brianna learns her status is elevated, and she is on the "list" as o [...]

    19. I made it about 20% into this one before giving it up. From the start I had a hard time getting into it. The characters couldn't keep my interest, although I did find myself intrigued by Pug, wish there would have been more with him. In the end this one wasn't for me.

    20. Incredibly complicatedI find myself not satisfied at the end of this book but intrigued. There are so many possibilities, often overwhelming in their numbers. I will have to hold an enthusiastic review until I see where this story goes and I am not sure I want to submerge myself in book two yet.

    21. She's the daughter of the Fae King and he's a cop. This is the first book in a new series. Lots of Fae intrigue, battles and plots. Her half siblings may or may not being trying to kill her and the king and the Fae want to keep her two human companions and she's determined to get them out of Fae.

    22. I really loved this book but it's been so long and I still can't find the 2nd book really bums me out since I thought this was a fun read

    23. Fun little romp through the land of the Fae. Really hope book 2 is coming out soon! Humans and non-humans- what can go wrong with that?

    24. Disclosure: I received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for a honest review.The Exile is the first book in a new series by author C.T. Adams, co-author of the Blood Singer series. I've read the first 3 books in the Blood Singer series and enjoyed it. So, when I heard Adams was starting a new series on her own, and about the Faes I knew immediately that I wanted to read it. I love all things Faeries! I thought the world-building was well-done, even if it’s your standard urban fantas [...]

    25. The Exile is everything I like about Urban Fantasy!What I liked: First, let me say when I found out C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp were going their separate ways, I was pretty much devastated as they (Cat Adams) write one of my favorite series. But they had a plan to pick up their separate careers and I wanted to give each of them a chance as individual authors.I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed The Exile. I love any novels about The Fae and it seems each author who writes about them has the [...]

    26. 2 stars - a decent start to a possible new series, but it had issues.This review will be brief, as I read this sometime ago and only got to writing its review now.What I likedI liked the protagonist, Brianna Hai. She was a half-fae, half-human fae princess who had been exiled to the human realm. I thought the author had done a fairly good job in portraying a strong female lead, with room to grow in subsequent books. She was cautious and considered implications of her actions when it came to deal [...]
