Exile is the second book in a major new paranormal series that began with Mercy. Mercy's search continues ... All Mercy knows is that she is an angel, exiled from heaven for a crime she can't remember committing. So when she 'wakes' inside the body and life of eighteen-year-old Lela Neill, Mercy has only limited recall of her past life. Her strongest memories are of Ryan, the mortal boy who'd begun to fall for her - and she for him. Lela's life is divided between caring for her terminally ill mother and her work as a waitress at the Green Lantern, a busy city cafe frequented by suits, cab drivers, strippers, backpackers and the homeless, and Mercy quickly falls into the rhythm of this new life. But when Mercy's beloved, Luc, reappears in her dreams, she begins to awaken to glimpses of her true nature and her true feelings for Ryan. How can she know that her attempts to contact Ryan will have explosive consequences? Meanwhile, 'the Eight' - responsible for her banishment - hover near, determined to keep Mercy and Luc apart, forever ... 'the book has a gripping start and by the end, you can't help but wonder who this angel of Mercy will become next' Sunday Herald Sun
