A steampunk fantasy not unlike many romances.. good characters discovering and deciphering emotions. A good read with a worthy female lead.

A unique steam punk, fantasy, science fiction twist. This was an interesting read. A lot steamier than I thought from the the blurb, so I'm glad I read this before giving a copy to my fifteen year old brother.
Ember is half human and half fairy princess, so it was interesting watching her interact with and learn about the human world in 2017. And a 2017 we'd never seen, things are very steam punk like.
The backstory we learn in pieces broke my heart and I could understand certain decisions made by Ember.
Reilly was a surprise of a character. I pictured him a certain way when Ember first meets him and by the time we get to the pirate ship, it's like comparing Neville from the first Harry Potter to the Neville in the seventh.....just wow. (And his transformation took a lot less time.)
My heart still aches and wonders whatever happens to Indulal, Sasha and Mac.
The travels through Ember's home world was intense and suspenseful. The truth was something I'd started to guess fairly early in but the full extent was a plot twist I wasn't fully expecting. The end also was unexpected and the epilogue was sweet. I'll definitely read more of this author's work in the future.
A new author to me and I had no idea what to expect but saw really great reviews so thought I'd read it for myself. First our heroine is half Fae and half human and a Princess to boot ! Oh that caught my interest and then she's in exile due to the quintessential evil stepmother. Now yes I was sort of reminded of Snow White but Ember doesn't hide amongst little men but instead onboard an airship so cue shiver me timbers shipmates and pirates as well ! Add in it's kind of a steampunk setting with several possibilities for a love interest and it was an enjoyable read. Enjoyable yes and I liked the strong Ember but frankly thought it was a YA story until a couple of scenes disabused me of that idea ! Yes Ember has needs and doesn't shy away from that side of herself but honestly this is not really a very steamy story. Instead it's a journey of sorts as we learn through flashbacks exactly what has brought Ember to the place she's in now. I liked that Ember was this strong protective character as it made a pleasant change from the men swinging in to save the day. Perhaps the ending felt rushed after everything else but I can't fault the author for giving readers a happy ending. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair
She's been banished from the Fae world by her stepmother after her father's death. It's not fair but it's a rule she can enforce. The stepmother even has her old boyfriend escort her out of faerieland. She has a mean streak and likes to bury the knife deep.
The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tours gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you). You can grab a copy now.
The first thing that happens is Ember discovers her magic is gone and she has to hide her ears. Then she happens upon an alley fight and defends the underdog. When he's safe, she plans to move on. But he follows her. He follows her through the whole story...
Even though her stepmother has thrown her out of the faerie kingdom, she has Ember followed. She'd prefer to see her dead. All she does is make Ember mad.
When Ember and Reilly join a group of traveling faeries and develop their own talents to make an act to make some money. There's a really interesting twist in the tale at this point that adds some romantic conflict to the story.
There's lots of action, Ember learns to trust again, and it has an exciting ending. I enjoyed this read. It was a very good fantasy tale. Read it and see what you think.
5.0 out of 5 starsFrom airships to boats... From human realm to fae realm...Great Fantasy...

After being exiled from her home after the death of her father half-fae Ember takes a job on an airship a rigger. She has to inspect the sails to make sure they have no tears and fix them. One night after returning to the ship she over hears someone talking about taken the cargo. Over hearing this conversation puts in danger and someone tries to kill her.
Their ship is over taken by pirates and just as Ember and her new friends are about to board their ship it is blown to pieces leaving them in the hands of the pirates. When the pirate ship runs into trouble they have to crash land in a field. Ember and Reilley escape with the help from their friend Charlie.
Ember met Reilley before she started her new job on the airship. She found Reilley in an alley being beaten by a couple of dudes. Ember beat them and saved Reilley’s life afterwards he followed her everywhere she went. She was even rude to him telling him to go away and leave her alone but he wouldn’t listen. He followed her to the airship and landed a job as a cook on the ship.
Ember and Reilley went from town to town looking for ways to make money and meeting new people along the way that was always very happy to help them. Ember always protecting Reilley and Reilley protecting Ember. I really enjoyed this little story. It was a nice turnaround from the man being the strongest and protecting and saving the woman.
I would recommend The Exiled Otherkin to anyone who love a good fantasy or who like to read about the fae. Come join Ember, Reilley and Charlie as we follow them through the human realm and then into the fae realm.
The Exiled Otherkin is a fun story about an exiled fey who gets an airship crew. It covers her sort of love triangle between two suitors, her personality clashes with the other crew, and a number of fun adventures, my favorite of which is when they're boarded by pirates. The world is fleshed out and solid and it's written in such a way as to give you emotional stakes with the Main character. A must have for any steam punk fan
