Guy Erma and the Son of Empire is a new three-part action adventure, set a long time ago on a planet far far away.

" Someone somewhere had decided Sas Darona plague could be used as a weapon."

"They called them poison pills, and in some cases the glass eco-systems containing six venomous flies were displayed as part of contemporary interior decor.

Strange!" Karl Valvanchi mused, "When you consider the insects are practically unstoppable and breed exponentially into great clouds of death. These plague weapons went beyond deadly. They were planet-killers."

13-year-old Teodor has found a way to escape from kidnap, how long before he is safely home?

13-year-old Guy Erma has run away from everything he has even known and no longer knows what the future holds.

Their adventure has forged an unexpected friendship, but do they really trust each other? Dare they share their darkest, deepest secrets??

The paths of Teodor Freyne and Guy Erma have now become one, their fate becomes that of the Empire they were born to when they discover a hidden terror.

I received Hunter in Exile for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by I Read Book Tours. Exile is the third and final installment in the Guy Erma and the Son of Empire. While Teodor has found a way to escape his kidnappers it will require him to trust Guy. The domeside boy he was supposed to fight who has connections with the current dome leader. When it’s clear his life is in danger just like Teodor the best thing to do is save the prince. Together with Guy’s knowledge of the dome the pair is will be able to escape  

During the time Teodor is kidnapped his mother has been trying everything to get him back but has been blocked at every chance. Thankfully her new alliance with Karl has set in motion his attempt to free Teodor. With his help they duo is able to escape and be reunited with his mother Saygins. However things are in chaos as his mother loses the dome debate to the one suspected of killing his father. Will Teodor be able to take control of the dome elites and save the planet before it’s to late?

Through the novels we have been given insight into several different character from Teodor and Guy the thirteen year old boys who grew up in different walks of life but came together in the end. We also had Sayginn who is Teodor’s mother and Regent in charge of ruling until Teodor is old enough to take his place as king. Last we have Karl the alien from another planet who is there to protect the planet even if his people may be on the planet with ulterior motives.

I enjoyed the first two books in the series and was excited to see how it would all play out in the end. I like the world building he planet of Freyne is an interesting place a dome where most of the people live as well as the military. I found the sci fi concept interesting I like the mix of humans and aliens not your typical sci fi young adult novel. Exile was hard to put down I ended up reading it in one afternoon because I had to know what was going to happen to Teodor and Guy as well as the planet. I think the author did a great job creating an exciting world with interesting characters who wouldn’t normally meet but instead did and found common ground. While I know this is the end I hope to see more in maybe another series after this book ends. Overall the series as a whole worlds well it’s like one big novel broken down into three parts full of action and adventure. I enjoyed the books the characters as well as the story are great.
