Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5-8-Sky Weathers and his band of monster hunters are about to face another challenge. Bedlam, an ancient and powerful beast able to enter his victim's mind and steal it, is on his way to Exile with his army of monsters. He was trapped in a chrysalis hundreds of years ago, but now his spirit is free. He is coming for Sky, because the 12-year-old possesses both the Hunter's Mark and the Eye of Legend Mark. If he takes over Sky's body, he will be even more powerful than if he can regain his own. The Hunters of Exile are determined to stop Bedlam, and their solution is to kill Sky before Bedlam can reach Exile. As Sky and his friends search for another way to save Exile, they also uncover a deeper, more sinister plot-one that reveals a traitor in the Hunters' midst. This novel is a nonstop action adventure with lots of imagination and unique mythology. The myriad cast is interesting, though Sky is the obvious focus and the most developed. Kids won't care, though, because this is not the kind of book you read for depth of character. Though it would be best to read the series in order, it's not imperative. Give this inventive fantasy to fans of Scott Mebus's Gods of Manhattan (Dutton, 2008), Suzanne Collins's Gregor the Overlander (Scholastic, 2003), and Jenny Nimmo's "Charlie Bone" series (Scholastic), and watch it fly off the shelves faster than a Piebald.-Heather Miller Cover, Homewood Public Library, ALα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

"A complex tale brimming with imagination." (Brandon Mull, New York Times best selling author of the Fablehaven and Beyonders series)

"Return to Exile marks the beginning of a remarkable new series. I loved the characters, and its originality and intensity kept me ripping through the pages. A stunning book." (James Dashner, New York Times best selling author of The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials)

Format: Hardcover
This is an engaging and fun adventure. I enjoy these books much more than Harry Potter. I enjoyed the first book, Return to Exile, tremendously. This book is even better, and worth the wait. The story is not too simple and not too complex. It is a world set within our own, and the characters are well developed and their stories intertwine in a manner that makes sense. The flow of the book is great. It is nice to see the hero of the story not be the perfect jock, but a young man who uses his mind, and is able to do so because he has been well taught. By way of disclosure, I am a mid-40's well educated professional, and I can't wait for book 3. Now that I am finished, my son can read it.

Complicated, exciting, couldn't put it down and every bit as good as Fablehaven and company. Not just for kids since I am a well educated 61 year old professional!!!

I enjoyed the first book and looked forward to this second installment. I love how detailed and intricate the story line is. It takes some thought to follow along and I recommend reading it with the appendix close at hand to help keep track of the names of the various types of monsters. I really like how everything about these stories is fresh and new and not a rehash of everyone else's stories with their typical monsters. The story keeps you wanting more!

This series is very interesting. It is a well thought out story and very creative. It holds my interest and keeps me reading. You will like this book if you like books like Leven Thumps, Fable Haven, or Pillage etc...
