    Kingdom of Exiles was a solid fantasy debut novel After reading the blurb I was intrigued by the premise and plot And as expected the storyline was uniue and at times gave me a Pokemon vibe which I really enjoyedThe writing was smart and I can see the author’s potential Even though it felt like a debut novel at times which it is – the plot and writing sounded like a YA novel The story was a bit stilted at times and didn’t

Fantastic Beasts meets Assassin's Creed in this epic gripping fantasy romance from debut author Maxym M MartineauExiled beast charmer Leena Edenfrell is in deep trouble Empty pockets forced her to sell her beloved magical beasts on the bl. 4 starsWOW From my very mediocre reactions to the cover to the fact that I entered it during a reading slump Kingdom of Exiles blew me away with its readability world building and overall reading enjoyment Writing Concept Characters Plot 12Pacing It s been a long time since I ve loved a new paranormal romance I think as I ve shifted to adult mysterythrillers and YA novels it s hard to revert back to the often formulaic nature of the average paranormal romance Kingdom of Exiles is no ordinary romance In fact it s one of those books that I often feel is on the wrong side of the shelf between romance and fantasy it has the action and world building of many adult fantasy novels just with sex I mean who can complain Leena is a Charmer a class of magic bearing human that can tame the magical beasts found in the world and keep them in her beast realm which for the sake of this review can best be described as a similar concept to Newt Scamander s suitcase full of beasts in JK Rowling s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Leena has been exiled from the Charmer s haven and finds herself eeking a meager existence as an illegal beast trader in the slums That is before she finds herself as the target of an assassin s hitNoc is the leader of the Cruor a guild of reborn not vampiric but definitely previously dead assassins that are killers for hire His guild is tasked with ending the life of an exiled Charmer who the Charmer Council has branded a criminal but she thwarts the Cruor s first hit attempt and comes knocking on Noc s door battered assassin in tow Leena wants the hit removed and Noc wants her for something else With a hidden past and dark curse attached to him Noc finds his pull to Leena irresistible even with its deadly possibilities He strikes a deal with his markLeena Noc and a few other colorful Cruor characters find themselves on an adventure through the realm to a fulfill Leena s bargain with Noc and provide his Cruor brethren with beasts of their own think animal familiars and b for Noc s mission of killing Leena once she s exhausted her usefulness But is Leena really the criminal that the Charmer Council proclaimsAs Noc and Leena dance closer and closer they find themselves entwined in a larger story than either of them expected where secrets come to life love can kill and not all is what it seems I found this story to be surprising at points emotional at others and altogether a humor filled well built narrative Kingdom of Exiles brings new life into a tired genre with its uniue focus on magical beasts and assassins I loved every moment Thank you to Sourcebooks Casablanca via NetGalley for an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest reviewOriginal notes So I don t love the cover but bear with me because the concept sounds like it could be a really good time

SUMMARY Kingdom of Exiles

Kingdom of Exiles

Ack market an offense punishable by death and now there's a price on Kingdom of PDFEPUBher head With the realm's most talented murderer for hire nipping at her heels Leena makes him an offer he can't refuse powerful mythical creatures in. Title Kingdom of Exiles Series The Beast Charmer 1Author Maxym M MartineauRelease date June 25 2019Cliffhanger yesGenre fantasy paranormal romanceWhen it came to us there were just too many thorns But damn if I didn t want to cut them all down and see what grewThe first half of this book was a little slow going for me Thankfully once I felt comfortable in Maxym M Martineau s world of beasts charmers and assassins I was all in It was loaded with action adventure and a romance that was refreshingly heavy for the genre I wasn t entirely sold on how uickly Leena developed her attraction for Noc This is a guy whom she thought could figuratively and literally stab her in the back But aside from that it progressed believably and I enjoyed the forbidden love aspect of it Noc is an undead guild master of Cruor He leads a group of assassins brought back from the dead that must complete each kill contract assigned to them There is no choice in the matter it s simply a something they do in order to survive Even knowing that some of his bounties are innocent he s resigned to his fate But it s a lonely life he leads because even the men and women closest to him must be kept at a distance for their own good He erected a barrier between himself and the rest of the world a cold facade that no one is permitted to penetrate He believes that his past is so tarnished by his misdeeds that this existence is all he deserves I thought death had wiped my slate clean when I followed Talmage and became a member of Cruor I didn t realize how wrong I was until it was too late If death couldn t cure me then nothing wouldHis past life is shrouded in mystery You re given hints and clues throughout the story and I think I have an idea as to what he s concealing but this bombshell is left for future books to be revealed You just know that when everything does come out there will probably be hell to pay Leena and Noc are similar in that they are both outcasts of society Both fallen from grace and doing what they must living one day at a time Leena is a highly skilled beast charmer who has been cast out of her home Hireath Betrayed by the man she loved she no longer puts her trust in anyone but herself Her one goal is to somehow convince the Council to hear her side of the story so she may return home It doesn t help that she s been breaking the law by selling beasts while exiled And the hit put out on her from a mysterious source That tends to cause some difficulties as well Leena isn t one to go down easily though and she manages to strike a deal with the man bound by Cruor s Oath to end her life She must provide beasts for his crew in exchange for her freedom If she can kill two birds with one stone and charm the beast she needs to re enter Hireath she may have a chance to reclaim her home and her honor that was stolen from her The magical beasts were something completely different for me I really enjoyed the wide range of species and how their talents interacted and aided the group on their adventure Leena s skill in charming them was extraordinary Many times she was facing seemingly insurmountable challenges putting herself in life or death situations Yet she faced each and every one with courage that was admirable There was a lot to love about Leena She was a strong heroine that was dealt a crappy hand but always finds a way to outsmart the odds As she started to develop feelings for Noc there was a lot of push and pull because he couldn t help but give her mixed signals Falling for each other could be the destruction of them both Noc was an open door Not because he was easy to read but because every action begged me to walk right into him To unearth every secret of my own volition and turn it over in my handsThe end was action packed and satisfyingly suspenseful It leaves off in a happy for now place but there is plenty of unresolved issues and room for the plot to grow in the following books This is my first read by the author and I was very pleasantly surprised I m always looking for fantasyparanormal books with a strong element of romance and this fit the bill perfectly Great world building original concept and flawed yet approachable characters that are easy to root for make a well rounded package I look forward to continuing with The Beast Charmer series next year with The Frozen PrinceFOLLOW SMOKIN HOT BOOK BLOG ON
