Publisher's Summary

Mard Audran has risen from hustling on the streets of the decadent Budayeen ghetto to being the right-hand man of one of the Maghreb's most feared men. As an enforcer for the powerful Friedlander Bey, Mard is just beginning to enjoy his newfound wealth and privilege, when he and Bey are betrayed by a rival and accused of murder.

Sentenced to exile and abandoned to die in the vast Arabian desert, Mard and Bey must somehow survive the searing sands and make their way back to the now-hostile Budayeen - and, then, take their vengeance.

By turns thrilling and philosophical, The Exile Kiss is the culmination of one of the great works of modern SF.

    I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.

    Story
    "The series concludes. Just buy it already!"
    Would you listen to The Exile Kiss again? Why?

    I have read and listened to the series several times over the years. I take away some new element each and every time.


    What other book might you compare The Exile Kiss to and why?

    Maybe some of Wiliam Gibsons early work. They both have the flawed main characters, drug abuse and the desperation of living on the street.


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He helps you put a face (mentally) to some of the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It makes you sad a bit to see the Marid fall prey to his inner demons at times when it could easily cost him his life.


    Any additional comments?

    Just an awsome book and series.

    Story
    "Great insights into the middle eastern mind"

    Not as strong as the first two stories. Some of the Arabic stories and fables were marvellously entertaining but I just couldn't buy into Marid and Poppa being put into the predicament of the first half of the book and then the resolve of the situation was wishy washy and lacked the punch of the first novel.
