Exile: Guy Erma And The Son Of Empire Book 3 by Sally Ann Melia [4 stars]

From the Description:

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 a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review from Iread book tours. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this book.

Exile, part three of the Guy Erma trilogy was easily my favorite in the series. Full of excitement and adventure, I was hooked from the beginning. While some of the themes in this book might not be suitable for younger children, older kids and adults will enjoy Prince Teodor and Guy Erma's daring escape and race to the Magnolia  Palace. Along the way they must learn to trust each other if they hope to survive and save the rest of the planet from the insidious plot to destroy the planet. There was only one thing I didn't enjoy about this book. It left me with more questions than answers. I hope that Sally Ann Melia answers them by continuing this enjoyable series. A fast and fun 4 star read.
