"Exiles" by RJ Larson is Book One in the Realms of the Infinite series. Though it is a book one, it coincides with Larson's Books of the Infinite Series. I have not read the first series, so I spent the first couple chapters a little confused. I would recommend reading the first series before starting this one. I have Prophet and it is on my TBR list. It just got bumped up the list. In Exiles, Araine is a Atea follower who has found scrolls with scripture written on them. Doubting the existence of Atea, Araine quickly grows to love the word of the Infinite, what Larson's characters calls God in the two series. Araine is being peddled off to a man of high ranking by her parents in order to boost their status. Following a betrayal, she is taken into slavery. Nikaros is a follower of the Infinite, but is taken from his family by Atea believers for a ransom. The two young people form a union of sorts and help each other in the courts of their slavery.
This novel is a Christian Fantasy. It is told in a whole new way of exploring where Christian fiction can go. Larson sets her mind wide open. Fantasy readers out there will love it. I received this book for free in exchange for a review from www.bookfun.org.
