Phaet reborn as Fay is known as a former engine room slave from Pacifia instead of being known as the fugitive and Lunar s rebel daughter Phaet takes refuge with Wes family at Saint Oda on Earth
Phaet, reborn as Fay, is known as a former engine room slave from Pacifia instead of being known as the fugitive and Lunar's rebel daughter. Phaet takes refuge with Wes' family at Saint Oda on Earth. However, the Odans detest the Lunars and believe they are Godless demons. Odans remind me of Amity and Agnegation factions from Divergent. They do not like weaponry and fighting. They tolerate peace and helping each other. However, when Tourmalinians show a torture video of Phaet's brother back on the moon, Phaet feels guilty leaving her family with the totalitarian Lunar government. Things take a turn when Phaet finds out the Lunars allied themselves with Pacifica and are going to take Saint Oda.At first it was hard for me to get into Dove Exiled. Set four months after the events in Dove Arising, I had difficulty learning all the new characters and about the Odans. However, after time I became invested with the plot line. The pace is slow for the first third of the book but it definitely picks up for the remaining two thirds. It's interesting how Wes is willing to help out Phaet even though his parents don't agree with his actions.Phaet is willing to help Wes despite the fact that she has to wait to save her family a little bit longer. The friendship between Phaet and Wes is strong. They will do anything for each other. Transitioning from Earth to the Moon is a little bit rocky but I am glad that I am able to see what is going on both planets. Reading about how Lunars and Earthens are affected by the Committee is crucial.It is fascinating to see the Base IV again and the Militia Phaet and Wes trained with only to be targeted as enemies now. However, not everyone on the lunar base is hunting Phaet and Wes. The couple is in trouble as Phaet tries to save her family while Wes tries to save his. Phaet can only trust a few people on Base IV. Phaet and Wes show some romantic interest in each other but each have their own priorities and they agreed to carry out saving their families first. I admire that. They don't let lust cloud their vision of what's important."In the midst of war, with our families clinging to life, we've declared some sort of allegiance to each other." - ARCKaren Bao definitely did a lot of research about terrains and ecosystems.

Good Book Dove Exiled "Dove Exiled" the intriguing and absorbing second novel in the "Dove Chronicles" opens with the threat of an attack on Saint Odan where Phaet Theta has taken refuge with Wes's Earthbound family after escaping the Moon. In an atmosphere of harmony and high-ideals Wes's father keeps the peace with the Sanctuarists an unobtrusive law force but their hatred for the "demons" on the Moon is all too apparent. As Phaet under the guise of the Pacifia refugee Fay blends into Odan society she learns not only of an alliance between Pacifia and Base IV to attack Saint Oda to transform it into a strategic military base, but of the ongoing torture of her brother Cygnus. With the Lunar Militia hot on her trail, she makes an agonizing decision when an opportunity to return to the Moon arises. Although longing for Wes after admitting their feelings for each other and knowing the Committee wants her dead, Phaet's determined to save her brother and continue Dovetail's rebellion. The plot is fast-paced and action-packed as Phaet and Wes not only struggle against the alliance intent on destroying Saint Odan and killing the islanders, but she and Umbriel break into the prison to free Cygnus on Base I only to find him missing and the militia determined to capture her. With every challenge, deception and betrayal that Phaet faces the plot thickens as the intensity and suspense builds.In an emotionally-charged setting as Phaet haunted by guilt struggles to stay rational, copes with the loss of friends and fights for her life, the plot moves quickly and smoothly to an explosive confrontation at the end that begs for a third book. In an exciting story that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end, even the romance is heightened when Phaet who's about to say goodbye to Wes finally admits her deep feelings for him.As in all well-written and intoxicating plots the complexity and realism of its characters infuse the growing drama with passion and high-energy and this story is no exception. Phaet (aka Fay) driven by guilt to return to the moon is determined, resilient and brave knowing the Committee wants her dead. A sixteen year old who's action-oriented and says little, she has to deal with her new celebrity status as “Girl Sage,” a symbol of the rebellion. Wes Carlyle duty-bound to protect his family is kind, caring and accepting, frank about his feelings for Phaet even though he knows they'll be separated. Of the other characters in the story Murray Carlyle haunted by her scarring is angry and broken; Phaet's sister Anka defiant and wilful; Eri Phi loyal and selfless; and Umbriel protective, stubborn and honest. I loved "Dove Exiled" a thrilling sequel to "Dove Arising" and can't wait to see where Karen Bao will take the plot and characters next.
