Présentation de l'éditeur

Epic fantasy from an exciting new talent


A gripping tale of heroism and the darkness within


On the fringes of the Verian Empire, two small boys stumble upon a strange altar, buried in the heart of a mountain. There they awaken a horror unseen for generations, that will descend upon the realm of men while it is at its weakest. For Veria is a nation at war with itself, only recently recovered from a bloody rebellion, and the time of heroes has passed. The empire is in a state of chaos, and while its ruler, the Empron Illis, rids the land of his remaining enemies, unseen forces are gathering at the borders. However all eyes are turned inwards. The Empron is not a well man, and there are whispers among the common folk that his advisors are spies; demons that only wear the flesh of men.

Yet there is hope...

In the distant mountains, a forester who has buried his past learns that he has not been forgotten, and that his crimes have sought him out at last. But he is no simple woodsman. He is Beccorban the Helhammer, Scourge, Burner and the Death of Nations, and his fury is a terrible thing.

For when all the heroes are gone, Veria will turn to those it has forgotten, before all is lost.

Exile is the first part of the Bloodforge series, a historical fantasy epic in the vein of David Gemmell's Drenai saga.


Fans of fantasy will love this!

The book starts quickly and I was captured by the story...then we skipped years and it started again and seemed to slow. I thought that, this being the first in a series, it had a lot of set up for future books.

The characters didn't develop well for me. I found it hard to relate to them as there was really not a lot of background. There is really never any reason given for why the creatures are there, who they really are and where they came from. The creatures are an army come back to take a land they believe is theirs by right.

The creatures are an army come back to take a land they believe is theirs by right. We don't know about them...are they smart, do they have a world with family? Do they just want to eat humans? It just wasn't clear for me what they wanted to accomplish. Who are their slaves, why don't they turn on their masters and help the humans? Plus many other questions that would have brought me a better connection to what is going on.

With all that said, the book held my interest and it has great fighting and wars. I am not sure it is appropriate for younger readers, maybe 16 plus.

I can recommend this book to people that are war and action lovers. It does drag at times but there is a lot of gore and killing. I was really disappointed by the ending as it left too much in question. I love a good cliffhanger but this just felt too vague and unfinished for me. I may read the next book in the series, I just don't know. Give it a try, you may enjoy it moore than you think.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable Action Read 22 décembre 2014
Par M. Ansley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
"Exile" is the saga of a land breaking apart after a young boy inadvertently releases an ancient demonic/supernatural force (known as the Echoes) upon the world. Four unwilling heroes—the infamous Helhammer, the noble Lord Callistan, the feisty former prostitute Riella, and the young boy, Loster--find themselves thrown together as they fight this new enemy that is about to dominate (and perhaps annihilate) humanity.

The story’s language is engaging, the fight scenes are dramatic, and most chapters have well crafted cliffhangers. It takes a while for the story to draw the disparate characters together and reveal their connections, but for the first half this isn’t a problem—the language and pace makes you confident the author is leading you on an epic journey. Overall the story is fun and dynamic, and the attention to detail (military tactics, hunting practices, etc.) sets vivid scenes that hook.

I greatly enjoyed the story and the writing, but towards the middle, the book lost some of its steam plot wise. We are given very little information about the enemy Echoes—what do they want? Where do they come from? What is their goal, besides killing everything in their path? There are hints that they have a grand plan, because they have a fearsome leader, and more than one Echo drops ominous threats about humanity’s impending doom, but we are given no clue as to what this plan is. This means that the main characters have little to act against—they seem to be moving from fight scene to fight scene, with no ultimate goal of where they want to go or what they will do once they get there. Only 80% of the way through the book do we get an explanation for who the Echoes are, what they are doing, and what the humans might have to do to survive. This information would have been welcome around the midpoint, and would have helped propel the story forward.

The book’s stated reader age range of 12 to 18 might also be a little off—some of the detailed violence and gore would probably be more suited for 15 and up. That said, the ending shows that author Stacey knows where the next books are going, and promises more taut, well written action.

I was given a free copy by the author in exchange for a review.

I'll freely admit that I don't usually take the time to rate books, but this book is so good that I felt compelled to do so. Very well written with an original story and great characters. A terrific read that will keep you engaged until the very last page.

Review originally posted to Goodreads: Exile is the promising beginning for an intricate fantasy series. The characters are so uniquely, and thoroughly flushed out that I feel as though I deeply know them. They each have their minute idiosyncrasies and quirks that I look forward to seeing (although I will admit that I was growing frustrated with the constant Loster/Barde headache moments; we get it, Loster's got some crazy stuff happening in his head. Beating us over the head with it doesn't make him seem cooler) The setting seems like it can be quite immense, but it is tough to get a grasp for where cities exist in relation to each other without some reference. It seems stereotypical to have a map in a fantasy novel, but this is one case where I need a map. I feel as though I was missing a chunk of understanding that a quick reference to a map would've amended. Mr. Stacey, I implore you, in your next publications, in the sequel(s), please include a map. It doesn't have to be sea monsters in the ocean detailed (though I'm a sucker for a good sea monster and crazy compass), but at least give us a lay of where your cities are in relation to one another and so we can track the movement of the party.

There were a few typographical errors (some grammatical, a few that were merely a slip of the keyboard, and a handful that were actually publishing/layout errors that took away from the immersion. I realize that this was not published through one of the traditional publishing houses, and humans are humans, but really, widows and orphans (having one or two words alone on a page if it's the last page in a given chapter) do not make the cut in those companies because they are not visually appealing. These are also things for Mr. Stacey to consider when he works through the publication of his next novels.

The pacing was perfect when the characters were all separated and it slowed dramatically when they converged (because time could not be skipped as readily I suppose) and that made for the last say 200 pages of the book to drag on a bit. It seemed to me like the group was just traveling from one fight to the next with seemingly no explanation as to how the echos could follow so easily/rapidly. Maybe that's going to be addressed in the next installments.

The cover is pretty awesome too!

Overall I'd say Exile is a solid start to a fantasy series with insanely vivid characters; I will definitely be picking up its sequel(s).
I received this book for free through Goodreads first reads.

edit: Tom recently posted a map to my review. As it is not in the first edition, I want to share it with folks who will be reading it. http://i.imgur.com/pU8hekQ.jpg
5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best works of High Fantasy I have read in a while. Highly recommended. 28 septembre 2014
Par S. Thaman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
With a host of heroic characters set in a majestically sweeping landscape, Exile delivers the very definition of epic fantasy. Alien creatures that imitate humans in near-perfect fashion undermine the kingdom of Veria and herald the onslaught wrought by the Echoes, an ancient race of humanoids bent on recapturing their homeland. High atop a mountain, two young brothers stumble upon a Bloodforge and accidentally set into motion the death of their kingdom. Exile begins with a wonderfully heroic theme that is never lost throughout the entire novel. Fans of low (or urban) fantasy should be wary when picking up Exile - much of the background of not only the characters but the world itself is not revealed until very late in the novel which can make it a difficult read. Unlike most high fantasy series, Exile (at least in the eBook version) lacks a map to help guide the reader along. Some of the chapter transitions, especially before the characters are firmly established, can be quite jarring. Tom Stacey's writing style is reminiscent of Joe Abercrombie - stunning imagery, a large cast, and very well placed metaphors that bring the characters to life. - Stuart Thaman.
