Review: Exiled by J.R. Wagner

Exiled (The Never Chronicles, #1)

Title: Exiled: The Never Chronicles #1

Author: J.R. Wagner

Publisher: Live Oak Book Company

Expected publication: June 5th 2012

James has never known an ordinary life. As long as he can remember, he and his family have been on the run—moving from place to place, never settling down, never growing roots. Now, just when he’s on the brink of manhood, the very thing his family has been trying to prevent tears him from all he has ever known and thrusts him into a place where he is powerless and alone. 

Bent on finding a way back, James must brave a place reserved for the worst of his kind. He quickly learns that the land itself poses a greater threat than its inhabitants and if he is to have any chance of returning, he must work with the very people he’s been raised to fear.

James has known magic since just after he was born. As a sorcerer, his skills are exceptional yet when he wakes in The Never, his abilities are gone. Armed with nothing but determination and the will to survive, he braves a land wrought with dangers, mysteries and temptations meant to ensnare both body and mind and prevent escape forever.

 Falsely accused James is sent into exile when he is convicted of a horrible crime.

I'm not a huge fan of books that go back and forth between different times, they are confusing and the book was slow at first. Saying that I really like the settings and the characters and the descriptions were great. The ending wasn't a great one, I'm not sure if I'll read the next one. 

Thank you Live Oak Book Company and NetGalley for this ecopy to review!
