Publisher's Summary

From out of the East they came, riding like a merciless plague - destroying kingdom after kingdom and the sovereigns who had previously mocked the warlord Loethar and his barbarian horde. Now only one land remains unconquered... the largest, richest, and most powerful realm of the Denova Set: Penraven.

The Valisar royals of Penraven face certain death, for the savage tyrant Loethar covets what they alone possess: the fabled Valisar Enchantment, an irresistible power to coerce, which will belong to Loethar once every Valisar has been slain. But the last hope of the besieged kingdom is being sent in secret from his doomed home, in the company of a single warrior. The future of Penraven now rests on the shoulders of the young Crown Prince Leonel who, though untried and untested in the ways of war, must survive brutality and treachery in order to claim the Valisar throne.

    "Poorly Written Female Characters"
    What disappointed you about Royal Exile?

    All of the female characters were either conniving or weak, completely unlikable or completely pointless.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked the talking raven story line, and the book had a nice build in terms of the plot.

    Would you try another book from Fiona McIntosh and/or James Adams?

    No


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Slow it down. Stop the characters gigantic leaps of logic and pace the book better. I seemed as though the author was rushing to get this book out and took very little time to really develop the story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of James Adams’s performances?

    No. Usually I enjoy listening to a story told with an accent. I found this narrator's accent grating however. I also feel he didn't separate one story line from another. Everything just jumbled together and I had a hard time realizing he had switched story lines.
