Anne Osterlund: Exile Aurelia #2

Robert s family nd ll the other steps long the way I won t even mention ny of them s to not spoil too much in case you re reading this review even if you haven t read the book despite the spoiler warning And the climax Well we knew from Aurelia that Anne Osterlund is brilliant nd writing climaxCharacters Aurelia is A Bollywood Affair as strong willed smartnd impulsive s ever nd it s serving her well when it comes to learning s much s she can in The Scent of Rosa's Oil as little time possible When theuthor refered to Aurelia in the first novel s Cinderella backwards in the fact that she was princess who shouldn t have been Nobodys Angel (Willow Park, a princess I foundn interesting if odd description Then when I read the book it bsolutely rang true But it rang truer still in Exile when we find that Aurelia is comfortable with herself out traveling the frontier than she ever was t n wkward dinner party with figurative chain round her Defending Hearts ankle She slso selfless than I ever realizedAurelia s emotions were very real in this book in every situation Meeting the mother who left her behind was empty when Aurelia had so wished it to be life changing Her disapointment in her mother s weakness turned into my disapointment just from reading her thoughts Her devestation t her father s death lso seemed real nd I felt for her Although I wasn t there when my father died either t least I knew we were on the best of terms How wful would it be for your father to die when you had fled fter his betrayal Just becuase he did nothing when Melony tried to kill Aurelia didn t mean he wasn t her father nd Aurelia s emotions reflected that Even Aurelia s ttempts for Robert s parents Feel the Heat (Phoenix Agency, approval felt realnd seemed like her reality was seeping into mineRobert is nother character I love He s s strong willed Sudden Fury (The Last Gunfighter, and smarts Aurelia but much uieter Spiky about it He sdmirable nd undoubtably the good guy Have I mentioned how much I m sucker for good guy It s the honest heroes that lways piue my interest While the first book is pretty evenly split when it comes to who s head the reader is in this one is not We re in Robert s head maybe 25 30% of the time nd lthough I liked having insight into Aurelia I missed having ccess to Robert s thoughts However whenever I was in his mind it was fantastic His guilt his fear his protectiveness of Aurelia nd everything else were so realThere were Love Rockets a lot of minor characters toond plenty of them to both love nd hate Robert s parents top the list of those I loved long with Drew Daria A Deceptive Homecoming (Hattie Davish Mystery, and Thomasnd the people in the desert I m lso very intrigued by the new Heir of Vashone nd what his presence could mean for Robert nd Aurelia if nd hopefully when she gets back the throne Melony topped the list of characters I hated nd I wanted to strangle her While her betrayal was surprise in Aurelia it wasn t here Frankly I m still waiting for karma to come nd beat her over the back of the head If that doesn t happen in future book I m going to be very very ngry I The Hired Man also hated the King despite his ultimate fate because he didn t donything to stop her before she went too far And of course I hated Elise because I think she s secretly been coaxing Melony long I don t think Melony is bright enough to have done ll that by herself But I missed seeing the characters I hated in this book because lthough they were there they never really showed up Just sent messangers nd things And it was the palace intrigue where no one could be trusted even though they claimed to be your friends that I missedAnyway I loved the characters Almost A Gentleman and the ones I didn t love I loved to hate Romance More than ever Aurelia was subtly romantic but Exile took the concept full swing Robertnd Aurelia re by themselves for most of the book nd s you can imagine this leads to several very very romantic situations You ll just have to read it to find outWriting I m huge fan of Anne Osterlund I think she s brilliant Aurelia is one of my favorite books of ll time nd Exile is lso very good lthough doesn t top the first one but I don t think nything could ve done that Then there s Academy 7 which I lso loved with Here by the Bloods a passion And have you read Anne Osterlund s blog Because it s brilliant tooCover Love it And the key Oh is thatwesome Especially because it doesn t come into play until the end of the novelOverall Great book If you read Aurelia nd liked it then you should definitely read it While I don t think it is uite s good s the first book it just has very different tone it is bsolutely fantastic Definitely worth the read If you haven t read Aurelia yet then you should read that one first At least you ll have the dvantage of not having to wait for this seuel I hope there is t least one Aurelia book too tie up ll the loose ends nd put Aurelia back on the throne but I don t know for sure if there will be one Even if there isn t this book ended well. S But even s unknown Bound (Torn Trilogy, assailants track Aureliand expedition guide Robert she knows her greatest risk is falling in love.

Me pril of 2011 i have to wait that long got to page 60will finish it one day perhaps but i m trying to stop reading so much ya fic This just felt like filler until the third book I m still not exactly sure what the whole purpose of the expedition was True Aurelia was visiting those places so she could get feel for the people in her kingdom but then what She knows her sister is plotting her death nd that things ren t right back t the castle I guess I just felt like it would have been believable if the expedition was being used to form outside Loyalty and Lies alliances instead of just observing Itlmost seemed like the sole purpose of the expedition was to provide romantic tension between characters I lso found Aurelia very nnoying There was too much back Fortunes Flames and forth of I love him but I can t love him I love her but I can t love her I m hoping the third book redeems the series Thoughts from theuthor nd Aurelia Exile began with Aurelia of courseShe has lways insisted on seuel to her first book t least s far back s I can recallThough technically I started typing the initial draft of Exile the weekend fter my first submission deadline for Academy 7 Vroom We were off Robert Aurelia nd I thundering through their expedition Of course there were certain things Aurelia didn t inform me of in that first draftThe forest for example Silly me I thought the Asyan Forest was the setting for single chapter Little did I know it was going to snatch us up nd refuse to let us leave I spent n entire Christmas in the forest The beginning of the following summer we were still there And then I had take detour into the draft for Claiming Her a different book Ooh Aurelia was mad You ve leaving us stuck here she yelledt me How can you leave us here I used logicPenguin used logicMy brand new gent Kelly Sonnack from the Andrea Brown Literary Agency used logicGuess who wonNot nyone using logic By the end of the summer Aurelia Robert nd I were out of the forest nd onto the frontier definitely worth the struggle with the scariest deadline I ve ever had in my lifeAurelia on the other hand was happy I liked this second book then the first It had faster pace nd much character developmentI loved the two main characters who go through lot nd learn to deal with what has happened nd trying to find out who they reThis book was darker then the first Murder Go Round a lot violencend their relationship changes to boyfriend girlfriend How Foreign Policy Decisions Are Made In The Third World: A Comparative Analysis and their is some kisses I would recommend this book for 14nd up This is not the conclusion to Aurelia s story but the end does wrap up nicely no cliff hangers thank goodness Anne has created Alcohol Fuels: Policies, Production, And Potential
