Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I wrote it, so yes, I think it’s fabulous. View all 5 comments. I wanted to love Exiled I mean, look at that cover! Gorgeous doesn’t do it justice! The world-building was well-done. I had a very clear image of Kelari, what the alien race would have looked like, and the landscape that surrounded them.
I loved the similarities to Earth, which made it easy to understand why Venus would have had an Earth Studi I wanted to love Exiled I mean, look at that cover! I loved the similarities to Earth, which made it easy to understand why Venus would have had an Earth Studies class in school. I wished we had spent more time on Kelair, and learned a bit more about Venus’ family, but I supposed that it was the next book, Beguiled, will be for.
Venus is an interesting character. I understood why she reacted so strongly to the human-like emotions that came with being on Earth, as she had been taught since an early age to think of the collective as she was going to be Queenrather than of the individual. Her physical reactions to both Zaren and Michael reminded me of my early teen years, and I loved how Zaren had to teach her the difference between a mere physical reaction and the development of deeper feelings.
Her ignorance of human emotions became quite endearing, and I liked watching her stumble when caught using a Kelari term, or an out-dated Earth slang term i. She did become a little confusing towards the end, where it seemed like Workman couldn’t decide how sick the atmosphere was making her; in one moment she was on the verge of passing out, and the next she was running to Michael’s side to make sure Zaren hadn’t hurt him too badly.
I wasn’t a huge fan of Michael. He came across as a sleazy, shallow creep in several chapters, and even knowing about the type of abuse he suffered wasn’t enough for me to reconcile those actions with his kinder and more loving ones.
I didn’t understand several of his reactions, and he was the reason I felt there were a couple of plot holes.
I found him accusing Venus of his mother’s death, even though they had spent the entire day together, was stretching things a little too thin and his eagerness to work with his deadbeat father was a little unrealistic. I also found the violence towards him a little unnecessary, as it didn’t seem to move the plot forward.
I think it was done so we would feel empathy for him, but as I didn’t really connect with him, that was hard for me to do. The thing that bothered me the most though, was the alternating PoVs. Usually, I’m a big fan of multiple PoVs, but I found Exiled didn’t clearly mark when we were switching narrators, and I found myself quite confused several times, having to go back and re-read sections to clarify who was narrating.
Once I got used to the style used to differentiate the alternating PoVs, it did get easier. The other issue I had was that chapters seemed to begin and end at random.
Pivotal dialogues were cut off in order to begin a new chapter, and I was left wondering why several times, as there was no break in their conversation, other then the new chapter heading. It was really quite odd. Criticisms aside, I really exiked enjoy Exiled.
The story was original and fast-paced, and I found myself unable to put the book down. The aliens were fascinating, and I liked that they came across as a little strange, because they are aliens after all; it wouldn’t have made sense to me if they reacted to exiledd just like a human would.
I also loved that each chapter title was an 80s love song! I’m definitely going to be picking up the next instalment, Beguiled when it comes out next May! Sep 02, C. I’m not a big fan wofkman Sci-Fi, so was a little leery to read this book.
Boy was I glad I did. From beginning to end, the story of Venus, her journey to earth and all the struggles she encountered, kept me on the edge of my seat. I absolutely loved Michael and the relationship that formed between them. This book blew me away.
I loved it from the first page and was thrilled to be reading something so richly creative and engaging. I definitely want to spend more time with the characters and delve deeper into their world in the sequel.
The bu starts on another planet, complete with strange animals and a hi tech closet, but soon brings us down to earth.
Exiled (Immortal Essence, #1) by RaShelle Workman (4 star ratings)

Someone knocked Venus out, blackened her name and sent her off in a space ship but luckily her handsome guard, Zaren saw her leaving and followed in another ship. He wkrkman known her since she was tiny but his care extends beyond that demanded by his role, not that Venus notices.
I loved Venus with all her confusion. She has both strength and vulnerability and an endearing innocence in all things love related.
She also has an awesome pair of hi tech boots or is it magic? Michael is confused about love and so is Venus. She releases Zaren from his role as guard, so that if she dies he can return home without her, but that frees him to develop a different kind of relationship with her. He tries to help her understand what these feelings are and that there are different kinds of love.
Zaren is one of those noble characters that I love. According to the story, loyalty, leadership and love are the qualities that every princess should acquire and this story gives Venus the opportunities she needs to develop these qualities. At the same time Zaren models them all.
As Venus learns about love, the nasties close in and the story becomes a battle for survival. I was pleased that there were only two instances of these sickening murders. With Zaren gone to plead with the gods to save her life, Michael is the only one workmab can help her, but will he?
The ending is perfect. It ties up the two main threads, but leaves some questions unanswered and challenges still to be met in the sequel.

I give Exiled 5 stars and exoled it for everyone. These boots fascinated me. The idea almost gives me shivers! RaShelle didn’t waste time in getting the plot moving, meaning I had no problem turning the electronic pages on my Kindle. It was also great to see the story unfold from different characters’ perspectives Venus; her personal guard, Zaren; the human, Michael; the bad guy, Dervinias No character is present by accident, and almost everyone with more than a passing role turns out to be related to the conflict in some way.
I love a book where the details fit together like pieces in a puzzle, and although this picture isn’t complete yet, I can look forward to more pieces falling into place in the next book in this series, BEGUILED. My enjoyment of this book was somewhat hampered by the numerous missing apostrophes, occasional clumsy sentence structure, one or two tense mix-ups and an accidental extra word here and there. I haven’t looked at the second version, but I’m sure the author has fixed up all those little errors I came across.
Do I really dorkman to elaborate? I mean, look at that cover! Yup, I have a thing for Venus’s sexy guard Something that doesn’t follow the current trend.
I purchased this book off of https: College Kid who reads YA. It’s different from what is being advertised in most situations.
