#BookReview: Kingdom of Exiles (The Beast Charmer #1) by Maxym M. Martineau


Synopsis: Fantastic Beasts meets Assassin's Creed in this epic, gripping fantasy romance from debut author Maxym M. Martineau.

Exiled beast charmer Leena Edenfrell is in deep trouble.

 Empty pockets forced her to sell her beloved magical beasts on the black market—an offense punishable by death—and now there's a price on her head. 

With the realm's most talented murderer-for-hire nipping at her heels, Leena makes him an offer he can't refuse: powerful mythical creatures in exchange for her life.


If only it were that simple. 


Unbeknownst to Leena, the undying ones are bound by magic to complete their contracts, and Noc cannot risk his brotherhood of assassins...not even to save the woman he can no longer live without.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟
My Review: This was a debut that really felt like one.  I did enjoy it at times but at others it just wasn't doing it for me.  The story could have been a little more polished but overall, I think this was a good first try at a full length story.   I will say that this felt like the fantasy version of Pokemon.  This one ended very well it felt like a full and complete story.  







"Martineau's intricate world-building melds traditional high fantasy with a hint of Victorian sensibility, then elevates it with endearing characters and a deliciously complex story that will leave readers anxiously awaiting the second book." - Publishers Weekly

"If you love fantasy novels with multidimensional characters, creative world-building, and a plot that is literally to die for then KINGDOM OF EXILES should be on your must-read list!" - Fresh Fiction

"A magical, solid, fresh new fantasy debut that will keep you turning the pages!" - Bookish First

"With Kingdom of Exiles, Maxym M. Martineau launches a fresh new romantic fantasy series that has all the lush world-building and intoxicating magic of the Harry Potter universe edged with something altogether more adult... Martineau's writing bursts with humor, heart, and an exquisite burst of magic that declare her a new voice as powerful (and charming!) as one of her irresistible characters." - Entertainment Weekly
