    Exile Of The Seas

    Exile Of The Seas pretty much picked up where the first book ended and it's a mix of things I'd hoped would happen and others that I didn't see coming. I loved that Jenna came into her own more or less in this book, shedding her naive skin and growing a fiercer, warrior-like covering. I cannot wait to see what book three brings, there are a few things I hope happen one of them is that Jenna becomes more confident in herself and her abilities. I definitely recommend this series.

    Sweeping fantasy that captured my imagination

    The second book in Jenna’s journey sees her learning to leave behind the naive, trusting girl she was and learning to embrace her own power. A chance meeting with Kaja, a warrior priestess sees Jenna realising just how little she really knows about the world outside barred walls and indeed just how she will struggle to ever fit in. If honest at times she is pitiful but that’s essential to the story as Jenna has to discover her own strengths and how to harness all that she can be. Jenna’s travels see her making more than one friend although Kaja is perhaps the one whose influence sets Jenna on her new path and changing her name to Ivariel devoted priestess of Danu is just the start. I loved that we know Ivariels thoughts and fears. It made her such a real person as she struggled with memories and finally learnt the value of hope. This is not a romance exactly although there is a character who accepts Ivariel exactly as she is but unfortunately for this reader he just didn’t have what I’d hoped for in a love interest. No this book shows Ivariel embracing everything she has learnt, showing others that change is possible and using the disciplines of her past life to rise up and become reborn in whatever guise she chooses. Not as dark as the first book but still a sweeping piece of fantasy that captured my imagination and I’m blown away by this authors talent This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    Enchanting fantasy

    Three and a half stars. I haven't read the first book in this new series which may be the reason I didn't feel connected to this story. Okay, I have no looked up the first book and it was clearly all about Jenna and her husband - I would recommend reading that one first because I definitely felt that I was missing a lot of the story. We first meet Princess Jenna of Dasnaria on board a ship, she has run away from her abusive husband and is fleeing her homeland. Having been brought up in a seraglio she has no concept of money, reading, writing or living in the real world. She doesn't even know how to open the portholes or light the lanterns until one of the other passengers shows her. We travel with Jenna as she learns about life outside the backwards, misogynistic society of Dasnaria where women have no voice, no power and no rights. Outside Dasnaria women can be warriors, priestesses, they can buy things, they can walk around alone, they can walk with young men. They have freedom. But always in the back of her mind Jenna knows her husband will not stop searching for her. She changes her name and becomes a Priestess of Danu but still she waits for him to find her. As always, Jeffe Kennedy's writing is seductive, it draws you into a fantasy world so completely you feel disorientated when you look up and find you are sitting at home instead of living in a foreign land. Nyambura reminded me of Sri Lanka, maybe it's because I saw elephants washing in the river there at the Pinnewella Elephant sanctuary and the way that Jeffe Kennedy describes their skin and the bristles which are so rough and such a shock just transported me back there. Overall, I feel that not having read the first book in the series left me at a disadvantage because I was curious about Jenn's previous life, how she escaped her husband etc. Had I read that book I expect my rating would have been much higher. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

    Good

    This book is much better than the first. The story moved much better, and there were lessons learned and action throughout. Considering how short and repetitive the first book was, with a bit of editing that should have been combined with this and it would’ve made a much better overall story. Jenna learns so much, travels so much, and grows so much throughout this book. Friends are made and lost, and she truly does come into her own. I’m looking forward to the next book.
