The Exiled Son is well written. It is gramatically sound and the language is easy to read and follow without being juvenile. The author has a wonderful style for storytelling. Mr White's descriptions of both character and place are engaging and entertaining. They are thorough, appropriately likeable and entirely believable despite being fantasy. One needs only let the picture form in his mind to be transported into Tallic's world. Mr. White's timing and plot progression are remarkable: I didn't encounter a single "lull" where he was filling space to build to the next big thing. This mesmerizing flow made it difficult for me to set this story aside and I found myself reading well into the night despite early morning committments.
I wholeheartedly recommend The Exiled Son and can't wait to see what adventures Mr. White has in store for us. I am a fan for certain!
In addition to the author having a truly rare and fantastic grasp of language and timing, the novel is filled with actions and sequences I have never encountered before. The creativity is seemingly endless, in the characters, events, and action sequences. As I read, I found myself constantly amazed. I kept asking over and over again, how can he keep coming up with such incredible ideas? I have read many novels, and I come across repeating storylines and design all the time, but there are so many concepts that I have never encountered before in this novel. I was truly awed with each new page. It was like opening a treasure chest, and it kept me hungry to read more.
