An Enjoyable Adventure
4 out of 5 stars
Exile was a bit different than the typical book in this universe (I’ve read a lot of the Dane & Bones stories including ones that featured Jade). There was a search for some old and lost treasure but even Jade herself mentions that the time period isn’t her norm. That being said, this book was still as enjoyable as the other old world discoveries but brought to the new world.
Wood and Ellis teamed up to write a fast-paced adventure book that featured a totally different set of challenges for Jade and Professor to find their way out of. As I mentioned above – this was more of a “new world” adventure making Jade follow a riddle to find a much newer set of treasure.
I think Exile really opens Jade up to be “more than just a character”. She really comes into her own and allows users to follow her from being in chains to solving a riddle that was unsolved for years. I haven’t read the other two Jade stories but I will now. I liked her as a character in the other books and I ended up liking her even more in this story.
Overall, Exile was an enjoyable book that I found myself staying up late to finish. Jeffrey Kafer did a great job with it as always adding that professionalism and research that a great narrator can give.
