What a ride!
Venus is kidnapped and sent to Earth to fulfill a special mission. But who is REALLY behind the kidnapping??
I can't tell you. You'll just have to read RaShelle's book and find out what happens with Venus. Does she succeed? Who should she trust? Why oh why is there another love triangle with hot guys and cliffhanger?

What I liked:
Venus being human and confused by it
Zaren
Michael
The story of Venus' gods
The boots, where can I get some?

Didn't like:
The bad guy; he's evil
Venus being so mopey (though I understand why)
Some info dumping
Needed one more edited

Rating: PG 16
V: Yes
L: Yes but not "human" swearing
S: No but sensual scenes

Exiled by RaShelle Workman is a YA Sci-Fi Romance about Venus, a sixteen year old princess who is about to go through a traditional right of passage where she becomes immortal. But before she can begin her journey things go terribly wrong and she falls ill and passes out. She wakes up to find herself accused of things she never did and exiled to Earth, a planet that will kill her in a weeks time.

Luckily, her guardian Zaren followed her, and was given the parameters that will allow her exile to be revoked and allow her to return to her home planet. She must help the earth boy Michael find his soul mate, and true love. Something Venus thinks, given humans volatile emotions, should be easy enough. Except things are not exactly as they seem and humans are unpredictable in what they choose to do. Now the clock is ticking and as Venus grows weaker, she is desperate to help Michael so she can go home to find out who set her up, but will she live long enough to make it happen?

I really loved the concept of the plot and how RaShelle weaves all the intricate sub plots into her story line. I fell hard for her characters and found my self rooting for them. Well the good guys anyway. But I thought she developed a wonderfully evil antagonist as well in Vinny.

I was drawn page after pager deeper into the story and was left in the end wondering what would happen next. I thought Exiled was a swift page turner and look forward to the next book in the series.

So some are rooting Team Zaren or Team Michael. I am rooting for them both, and interested to see how it all falls out as the story goes forward. I don't want to choose sides just yet. But if you want to know what I am talking about then you should hurry and get your copy of Exiled by RaShelle Workman so you can see exactly what I am talking about.

First of all, I must point out the obvious. This cover is absolutely stunning. It's what made me want to pick up the book in the first place. When I finally read the book, it definitely didn't disappoint either. The characters were witty and funny. Venus even though she was sick, wasn't whiny and made a lot of wisecracks that had me chuckling. The only character that I found annoying was Cheverly because she seemed like a main character, but she wasn't explained very well. I thought I was going to find the book not to my liking after reading the synopsis, but the author pulled off the plot very well. She makes you feel like you're right there, experiencing all the characters emotions. I so excited to learn whether Venus picks Michael or Zaren. I'm curious in the next book to find out more about Michael's past and why he doesn't get hurt as easily as a normal person would. I can't wait to read the next book, Beguiled, and fall back into the story.

In a world of vampire and werewolf novels, Workman is a breathe of fresh air by bringing a new era into science fiction.

I loved the alien mythos and fell in love with not only the characters, but the story as well.

Looking forward to the rest of the series and eager to learn more about Workman's alien world!

The very first thing I have to say about this book is how much I absolutely adore the cover! It is one I noticed and was interested in long before I asked to be included in the Dark CARMA Blog tour. I wanted to read it! With a cover like that, how could it not be good?

I wasn't disappointed, though it was a book that surprised me.

Let me explain: In the opening scenes we come upon Princess Venus. Now, with a name like that, I expected the story to be mythological in nature, and thus was confused by all the high tech involved. Beds that conform themselves to one's body and such. At first I thought, "Okay, she's meshed high tech with mythology," but then Venus finds herself on earth, where even the air she breathes is toxic to her. Her family has disappeared, her precious irrihunter (which it took me a while to figure out what the heck that was. lol) has been murdered, and she's been accused of sacrilege and treason by the Gods.

It was interesting, and I enjoyed it, but I was still thinking high tech mythology--and then space ships got involved.

Huh???

I suddenly had to adjust my thinking. This book was science fiction with some mythological undertones, yes, but it was Sci-Fi! Once I figured that out (I should have watched the book trailer before hand. Dead giveaway there! DOH!), the reading went much easier and was fascinating. But truly, at its heart, this is a romance, and a well written and enjoyable one at that. For me, that says something. I'm not a huge romance fan, but this story sucked me in so much that I found myself looking for a spare moment ANYWHERE to read. I ended up staying up until the wee hours of the morning to finish last night because I just couldn't stop, even when the words were blurry because I was so tired.
