BLOG TOUR!! Exiled by J.R. Wagner (Part 1)

Exiled (The Never Chronicles #1)At the Other End:

James has never known an ordinary life. As long as he can remember, he and his family have been on the run—moving from place to place, never settling down, never growing roots. Now, just when he’s on the brink of manhood, the very thing his family has been trying to prevent tears him from all he has ever known and thrusts him into a place where he is powerless and alone.

Bent on finding a way back, James must brave a place reserved for the worst of his kind. He quickly learns that the land itself poses a greater threat than its inhabitants and if he is to have any chance of returning, he must work with the very people he’s been raised to fear.

James has known magic since just after he was born. As a sorcerer, his skills are exceptional yet when he wakes in The Never, his abilities are gone. Armed with nothing but determination and the will to survive, he braves a land wrought with dangers, mysteries and temptations meant to ensnare both body and mind and prevent escape forever.

First Impressions Last:

I was first friends with J.R. on Goodreads, then I discovered the blog tour through one if his events I was invited to and thought this was a perfect opportunity to read what sounds like a truly unique novel. It sounds like a cross with elements we have seen before. A family on the run, then the truth comes out. Then the coming of The Never is in play and it makes this novel sound like one of its own.

Behind the 288 Pages:

I am completely and in love with the world that J.R. has built in The Never! The world is built up perfectly and I am completely sucked into this new and exciting world. The character building of James on his journey through The Never as well as everything he discovers on the way, as well as things he doesn't discover just as yet. Just as all the major characters in this novel, like Kalani and Akil, are very important in the story as well as interesting to hear about and read. I love the way that everything is described in this novel, we see everything happening in our heads and feel like we're on the journey with James and his friends. I love how we're given background information about the world. I am completely taken with the idea of Faithfuls and Unfaithfuls, it makes the world bring itself closer to ours, with all the different beliefs. The constant jumping to different places and times is a little confusing at first, but we quickly get  handle on it. We are left in agony waiting for the next novel to come out. We have so many questions that we want answered. It just got a little much with all of the flashbacks, I wanted to get a grip more on the present day than the time. Although I love the background information provided, because no one now-a-days really tells of the backstory when in another world.
