I liked the second book in this series better than the first partially because I really liked Tess as a character. I have always loved characters who were drawn to animals and had the ability to communicate with them--it's been one of my childhood dreams to have that ability. I also liked Gabriel very much as her foil and love interest. They are very much suited to one another. Learning more about Tess's abilities was interesting. One thing I liked was that I didn't feel anyone really did anything out of character. Daneska was Daneska to the core. I also like each book being told from a different character's perspective. The story moved along at a good pace and secondary characters were introduced and fleshed out enough to make them intriguing--nice for the next book! Highly entertaining and enjoyable.
About This Item
Exile for Dreamers is the second captivating installment in the Stranje House series for young adults by award-winning author Kathleen Baldwin. #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot calls this romantic Regency adventure “completely original and totally engrossing.”
It’s 1814. Napoleon has escaped his imprisonment on Elba. Britain is at war on four fronts. And at Stranje House, a School for Unusual Girls, five young ladies are secretly being trained for a world of spies, diplomacy, and war....
Tess Aubreyson can’t run far enough or fast enough to escape the prophetic dreams that haunt her. Dreams bring nothing but death and grief, and Tess refuses to accept that any good can come from the Sight—the curse that destroyed her mother. But when danger threatens Stranje House, Tess’s disturbing dreams become the only means of saving Lord Ravencross, the man she loves, and her fellow students.
Tess’s traitorous friend, a former student at Stranje House, has returned to England, intent on paving the way for Napoleon’s invasion. Can the young ladies of Stranje House prevail once more? Or is England destined to fall into the hands of the power-mad dictator?
Fans of genre-blending, romance, and action will love this second installment of the Stranje House series that began with A School for Unusual Girls.
“Enticing from the first sentence.” —New York Times Book Review
"This alternative history series will appeal to fans of Gail Carriger's works and The Cecelia and Kate novels by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer." —School Library Journal on A School for Unusual Girls
