Review Rating: 4/5 stars!
Reviewed by Lit Amri for Reader's Favorite
I've already read Borgman's other work before - Tal'Avern Chronicles - so the excellent quality of the writing is as expected. The concept of angels and the old Greek gods is given a new perspective, particularly in terms of their creation. In the biblical sense, what humans perceive as the facts of religion and God are the opposite in Borgman's The Exiled.
It might be somewhat sensitive to some readers, and may require a broader outlook in terms of one's system of belief to fully enjoy it, but personally I find it purely entertaining as a concept for a supernatural fantasy fiction.
On the other hand, the story does touch on several thought provoking subjects regarding humans and how they perceive religion. Characters David and Celeste are easy to root for. There's plenty of thrilling action and also romance.
I would like to note that this is for mature readers. On the whole, this is a solid series from Borgman.
About the Author
Scott A. Borgman was born in Robinsdale, MN. in 1975. Currently he resides in central Wisconsin with his wife, their three teenage children (*GULP!*), a rescued cat, and their bed-hogging dog who is all kisses and cuddles - and who steals his spot in bed on a nightly basis. When he's not busy writing, reading, or socializing on Facebook and Twitter, he's spending time with his family, watching movies, finding all kinds of things on YouTube which he finds humorous (which doesn't take long - he has a sense of humor that borders on overactive), playing with the larger of his four-legged family members when she's not sprawled out in his spot looking too adorable and comfy for him to want to move her, and still plays the occasional video game. Scott writes both Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. "As an author, I breathe life into each and every character within the stories that I write. But it is the reader who gives them their souls." --Scott A. Borgman
