Review: Exiled- Sophie Davis
Author: Sophie Davis
Series: A Talented Novel
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Kenly Baker is alone. TOXIC has been defeated. Her friends from the McDonough School for the Talented are scattered to the wind. Even Kenly’s only living family member cannot hide the scared teenager from those who wish to contain her. Because Kenly is one of the Created.
For her, it’s a future worse than death.
She travels across the Atlantic Ocean, to the slums of London. There, Kenly finds tentative acceptance among a group of outcasts. They have spent their enire lives dodging shadows, barely staying alive. Kenly thought she knew what horrors haunt the night, but her new companions reveal predators far more alarming than anything she’s ever faced. Suddenly, she is brutally aware of the dark side of humanity.
Kenly’s biggest concern was the UNITED trackers, who round up and capture the Created. But there are adversaries in this new world who are far more terrifying. And unfortunately for Kenly, now their sites are set on the Created.
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
To start off I just want to acknowledge how gorgeous this cover is, I'm in love! It took me awhile to get into this instalment because I couldn't remember what the heck had happened in the last book. I also found it harder to get into Kenly's head. This made the beginning a bit slower for me, but then it did pick up and I really enjoyed the story. The human trafficking issue really peaked my interest and I hope that it will be explored further in the next books.
I really enjoyed these new characters and I am in love with James. He is the damaged bad boy and I love it. I hope he will get his revenge. My only criticism for the characters was sometimes it felt like their accents were dropped, then a random "love" was thrown in to cover it up. Otherwise I enjoyed the new and old characters.
I would recommend this novel to those who have enjoyed the the series thus far.
