      "You'll find plenty here to enjoy... Power games and deceptions at court, increasing political chaos among small rival kingdoms, the mysteries of who's the bad wizard, what role elder magics might play, and the whereabouts (and condition) of a certain magic stone all figure in the tale... Glass manages to hold the unwieldy contraption together with help from good characterization and settings that come alive on the page."--Locus on Daughter of Exile

    "This remarkable debut novel captured my imagination. Isabel Glass tells the fascinating tale of a young woman seeking justice and power in a magical world of wizards and royalty, court intrigues and magical battles. Deftly written and filled with delightfully drawn details, employed in the service of an intriguingly twisted plot."--Pat Murphy on Daughter of Exile

    "This is an exciting first novel. The setting is colorful and exciting, from the crowded Pergodi streets to an enchanting forest to a village of giants, and the stormy relationship between Angarred and Mathewar will please fans of romantic fantasy."--Romantic Times BookClub on Daughter of Exile

    "Daughter of Exile is a very complex entertaining romantic fantasy with so many twists and turns that it is impossible to predict what will happen next. The heroine changes over the course of this novel from a naive innocent to a brilliant strategist and warrior; she always seeks peace for her homeland without sacrificing her morals at court. This is Isabel's Glass's debut novel and it ranks with the works of Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey."--Harriet Klausner on Daughter of Exile
