When I read Exile's Burn initially, I found myself staying up until one and two thirty in the morning just so I could find out what would happen next. Reading Exile’s Burn was one of my first forays into reading indie fiction. As a result of reading Corvidae’s book, I’m pretty sure I’m hooked for good. Hope to see an e-release of the sequel, Fire in the Void, soon!

The story itself did have some predictable elements, but the predictability led to dread and heart-pounding anticipation about what was going to happen when the story’s characters finally figured out that you, the reader, were right and they were wrong. The death of various characters never took place without reason, which I like in a story, and there was never violence simply for the sake of violence.

It was a fantastic read, and one I’d read again. Very happy it's finally out in ebook format!
