EXILE: Part 3 of Guy Erma and the Son of Empire
13-year-old Teodor has found a way to escape from kidnap, how long before he is safely home?
13-year-old Guy Erma has run away from everything he has even known and no longer knows what the future holds.
They escaped through dark tunnels and back alleys but they also discovered a hidden terror that now threatens their entire planet.
Two boys as different as two boys might be. Their adventure has forged an unexpected friendship, but do they really trust each other?
Dare they share their darkest, deepest secrets?
I thought that part two, Hunter was really good but part three is just as grand. The action never stopped. The story kept going from start to end. Again I could not get enough of Guy and Teodor. They were evenly matched.
I have talked about the characters but not too much about the world that this story took place in. It felt like a real world. What I mean by this is that it was very believable as a place to could really exist. For a sci-fi fan like me, this was a great thing. Sci-fi stories can take liberties to stretch the truth of reality but at the same time if the story is too far fetched or unrealistic, then I can not relate. This can lead to a turn off. Not to worry as none of this happened to me reading this book. Also, the illustrations in this book just added and helped bring the story to life. This helped me get a good image in my head. It was like I was playing a mini movie in my head while reading this book. I look forward to seeing what the author comes out with next.
