Starred Review of Exile by PUBLISHERS WEEKLY:
"A failed rebellion against a tyrannical space confederacy is exiled to a remote corner of the galaxy in this political space drama, the first full novel in Stewart’s Exile series (after the novella Ashen Stars). In the colonized cosmos of 2386, Isaac Gallant, the son of the dictatorial president of the interstellar Confederacy, is a high-ranking officer in the Confederacy fleet. He’s also secretly part of a rebellion against the Confederacy. Alongside rebellion leader Amelie Lestroud, a former movie star, Isaac helps to colonize a verdant planet... THIS FAST-PACED STARFARING ADVENTURE SUCCEEDS with a thrilling mix of space battles and tender emotions."
Review by David Drake, Author of HAMMERS SLAMMERS:
EXILE examines a [Star Wars-like] universe in which the rebellion fails before it gets started and the large body of rebels are exiled to a distant part of the universe to create their own civilization--or to die if they fail. A detailed and very intelligent exploration of the realities of society at a macro level.
Glynn Stewart is the Canadian science fiction and fantasy author of the Starship’s Mage, Duchy of Terra and Exile series. Writing managed to liberate him from a bleak future as an accountant. With his personality and hope for a high-tech future intact, he lives in Kitchener, Ontario with his wife, their cats, and an unstoppable writing habit.
Faolan’s Pen Publishing is an action-oriented science fiction publisher with an emphasis on unique high concepts and optimistic views of the future. Lead characters grapple with and are driven by a sense of duty—both to their cause and the people around them.

Anyway, I keep thinking about after I finished reading it.
I hope it captures your imagination as thoroughly as it has mine!
I received a free electronic copy of the book in exchange for my honest review ... then I pre-ordered this book as soon as preordering was available.
That, combined with hard-to-keep-straight names of various aliens, I quickly lost interest and quit reading at the 25% mark on my Kindle. If you are a science fiction fan and enjoyed the first book of the series, I believe you will be disappointed with this installment.
If you haven't read the first book in the series, and the prequel novella, it would be best to start there.
If you loved the first book, the saga gets even better. I love that Glynn always finds new ways to surprise me without compromising his character's integrity. One of my favorite things about all of Glynn's work is that his heroes and heroines are actually heroic. They aren't without flaw but they always try to be better.
I also love the references Glynn makes to popular scifi shows...without detracting from his writing. As a Trekkie myself, it is like the cherry on top.
We get to be introduced to new aliens, and they are an interesting and well thought out race. We also learn more about the aliens from the first book. I'm trying to be vague because I don't actually want to spoil anything, but I think it's important to note that Mr. Stewart's imagination still seems to be performing well. A new hero is brought to the forefront as well. Isaac can't be everywhere, after all, that's not realistic.
I particularly love AI stories so to see our new hero interact with the original aliens more is right up my alley.
Overall, this book took a great premise and cast and largely squandered it. I found myself wishing that the book had maintained more focus, and I have a feeling that the author was in a hurry to pack in a great deal more than he could reasonably manage in the pages and time he had to work with. It needed a less ambitious plot or a much bigger book with more polish.
I received a free electronic advanced reader's copy in exchange for my unbiased review. but I have already Pre-order the book.
I received an ARC in exchange for my review. I enjoyed the book enough that I bought a copy.
Glynn has put together yet another terrific space opera filled with characters that are relatable, whether human or not.
One of the items that is most impressive is how Glynn changes the functionality of space warfare depending on the series. For example, in the Starshp's Mage universe, missiles decide battles. In this universe, missiles are essentially useless. However, in both universes, he builds the tension of space warfare and executes it flawlessly.

Note: I received a free electronic copy in exchange for an unbiased review (but liked it enough to buy a copy anyway)
I always buy this author's books and so far none have disappointed me. This is a slight departure from the normal books in that it's far more open ended with a decent amount of questions raised. I do enjoy books where you can sit down afterwards and imagine what happens next and have no end of potential ideas. I have great hopes for this series in this light and sincerely hope the author maintains his high standards and doesn't disappoint.
Fair warning - you will find this very hard to put down once you start reading it.
Some ideas could have be more detailed
Nice development for this new chapter and open several alternative
