"[R]eaders will be drawn in by the memorable cast, vibrantly drawn fantasy cultures, and vivid prose. Epic fantasy fans will be eager to see where the series goes."

Publishers Weekly

"From the rich world building as these remnants of humanity hide from changelings behind a Salt Wall, to the interesting culture, a unique magic system, and a variety of humanoids, readers will be delighted that nothing is predictable in this intriguing story."


“The beginning of a truly epic tale. Deft worldbuilding and wonderful verbal fencing that is a delight to read. In these pages, you are in the hands of a master.”

Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms and internationally bestselling author

“Erin Evans is a wonderful writer because she can make the reader care deeply about her characters, offering details and anecdotes, quirks and simple gestures to make those characters so very real. That character-building is on in full in 'Empire of Exiles,' but what makes this book special even by Erin’s lofty goalposts is the world she weaves around these characters. Detailed and mysterious, a place to explore and relish. 'Empire of Exiles' is highly recommended!”

R.A. Salvatore, author or “The Legend of Drizzt” and the DemonWars novels

“Empire of Exiles has it all: characters I love, intertwined compelling mysteries in the past and present, plot twists that keep coming, and a unique and fascinating world and magic system! One of my favorite books of the year!"

Melissa Caruso, author of the Swords and Fire Trilogy

“Beautifully wrought and equally ensnaring, this book lived up to and then surpassed all my expectations.”

Cat Rambo, author of You Sexy Thing
