I was vastly disappointed with this book. I found myself skimming parts and wishing that the book would go a lot faster than it was. Alberich's habit of talking like Yoda took getting used to and there were moments when I just wanted to set the book down and walk away. It picked up during the last part, though, which was a relief. I can see why it was so slow-moving as it was necessary to establish Alberich as a character but it was very annoying for someone already familiar with him. I guess that's a problem with prequels focusing on an already well-established character... I haven't found a copy of Exile's Valor yet to see if the second book in the duology is better. I'm not willing to spend 25 dollars for the book and I haven't found a copy in a used bookstore, as I did with Exile's Honor. We'll see. Though the last part of the book did almost redeem it for me, especially the part with the children, which I enjoyed and thought very sweet.

I really enjoyed this book. The teen angst and romance were touching and sweet and made me remember being a girl in high school with an almost-unattainable crush. My only reservations were that its geared toward teenagers and it had some implied sex, a couple of instances of binge drinking and a few bad words, which was too bad because otherwise my teenager would have liked it.
