The Exiles is truly a work for these times, about the abuse of power and how the voices of the less powerful will not be ignored. Original, meticulously researched, and perfectly crafted. One of the best books I've read all year.

Amy Poeppel does it again with a smart, hilarious story. I loved every page, every character. She sets a complex dance in motion where I never knew quite what was going to happen and the end was SO satisfying. Highly recommended.

“No matter how she had suffered, Darby hadn’t retreated from life after all. In fact, she’d embraced it. Quietly, carefully, but with dignity and love.”
Fiona Davis, The Dollhouse

“Isn’t she a gem? You never know who you’re going to meet here. Now that you’re living in the greatest city in the world, anything is possible.” Of course that was Stella’s perspective. With her beauty and steady work, she had an independence Darby envied.”
Fiona Davis, The Dollhouse
