Review: Exile

Exile (Aurelia, #2)Exile
Anne Osterlund
Pushlisher: Speak
Release Date: April 28, 2011

Crown princess Aurelia is a survivor. She survived attempted assassination. She survived the king's rejection. She survived her mother's abandonment. And now, in exile, she must survive her kingdom-from hostile crowds to raw frontier to desert sands. But even as unknown assailants track Aurelia and expedition guide Robert, she knows her greatest risk is falling in love...

It's been quite a long time since I've read Exile's predesor, but I remember really enjoying it. As it turns out, I really liked Exile, too.

Like I said, it's been a long time since I read Aurelia, but I was able to get into Exile withough difficulty. The book is very fast paced, so it was very easy to get into.

This isn't like most historical fiction. It was a fun adventure, and one that I really enjoyed. I really liked experiencing the journey with Aurelia and Robert.

I liked the romance in Exile. There was always some tension between Aurlia and Robert, but their romance wasn't quick; they didn't just jump into it When they finally did get together, I was jumping for joy (figuratively). I thought they were very good together. 

And, I love Aurelia's character herself. She was very strong and loyal, which I liked. She was also independent, which I don't think we see enough of.

Overall, I really enjoyed Exile. It was fun and very enjoyable. I, for one, never found it slow or boring.
