In a world where magic is the norm, The Academy has chosen a hundred of the strongest mages to enter its halls. The aim is to identify their specialties and strengthen those skills. Among them are Beatrice, Nate, and Sab. With Bea being the favorite, the winner of the tournament could be offered a position on the Council at the end of the year. This could also be the perfect opportunity for one of the Exiled to infiltrate the Council and split it from the inside. This could be part of Zero’s big plan to destroy the world. But who could this traitor be and who can be trusted? Krysten Harlow brings a wonderful new fantasy world to life in The Exiled: The Chronicles of Lethia.
This is a world in which being an empath is considered a rare gift. Manipulation takes the form of one individual who has to be destroyed. Finding things and protecting others are appropriate skills to have and develop. Just as deep currents of magic run through Lethia herself, moral themes abound throughout this book. Krysten Harlow has gone to great lengths to imbed valuable lessons in this story. It is written in the first-person from the perspective of the main characters. In this way, the reader has a bit more insight into the thoughts and feelings of each one. Even though it is focused on young adults, more mature readers will find great pleasure in this story. The Exiled is the first book in the series and I look forward to the sequel to see what the trio does next to save their world.
