Overview

Brianna Hai runs an occult shop that sells useless trinkets to tourists-and real magic supplies to witches and warlocks. The magical painting that hangs in Brianna's apartment is the last portal between the fae and human worlds.

A shocking magical assault on her home reveals to Brianna that her father, High King Liu of the Fae, is under attack. With the help of her gargoyle, Pug, her friend David, and Nick, a police detective who doesn't believe in magic, Brianna recovers what was stolen from her and becomes an unwilling potential heir to the throne.

A suspenseful urban fantasy with a hint of romance, "The Exile" is the first solo novel by C. T. Adams, who is half of "USA Today" bestselling author Cat Adams. Like the Cat Adams Blood Singer novels, "The Exile" is set in a world where magic is real and contains Adams's trademark blend of suspense, action, humor, and strongly emotional writing.

Adams (The Eldritch Conspiracy) launches an urban fantasy series with a well-worn premise. Brianna Hai, an exiled Faerie princess leading a quiet life on Earth, is forced to return to Faerie where she’s swept up in court intrigue and politics. She’s accompanied by some human allies, including Det. Nick Antonelli, who suspects her involvement in several unsolved cases and wasn’t aware of her true nature until she dragged him across the veil. Once in Faerie, Brianna must simultaneously protect her friends from the Fae, who enjoy human playthings, and deal with the constant struggle to determine who will succeed her father on the throne. While the core story is solid, the pacing is erratic, and the various subplots never really mesh. Nick’s investigation is thoroughly derailed by Brianna’s return to Faerie; they might as well be two separate books that accidentally collided. However, Adams does an admirable job of breathing life into Faerie and its creatures before ending on a game-changing cliffhanger. Agent: Lucienne Diver, Knight Agency. (Mar.)
