The isolated world of Lenfell seemed the perfect refuge for the Mageborn--a people persecuted for their magic powers.

Now, long after the war, three Mageborn sisters will find themselves on opposing sides in this world-shattering conflict.

User Review  - Sara Cranston - Goodreads

The only reason I didn't read the rest of this series was because it took me a couple years to find the next book. I intend to read them soon. Read full review

Review: The Ruins of Ambrai (Exiles #1)

User Review  - James - Goodreads

This was a really good book. The beginning is hard to get through because of all the details given, it is worth it though. It was also great to read about a world that is matriarchal. I really recommend this one. Read full review
