Exiled by RaShelle Workman Blog Tour


Stubborn, sixteen-year-old Princess Venus of Kelari wants one thing, to become a kelvieri, that is, until someone exiles her to Earth, kills her irrihunter and takes her family.

Now she wants revenge.

First she’s got to get home. But before she can return to Kelari, the Gods have commanded her to help an arrogant boy named Michael find his soul mate. Only she doesn't know the first thing about love.

Rather quickly, her inexperience with human emotion is obscured by other matters—alien-controlled psychotic teens that are out to kill her, and a government group that is set on capturing and dissecting her.

Worst of all, Venus will suffer a painful death-by-poisoning, thanks to Earth’s atmosphere, if she remains on the planet longer than one week. Still, Venus is a Princess and she's got a plan. Surely, with her help, Michael will fall in love with a human.

But time is running out and Michael is falling for the wrong girl—her.

What a ride!
Venus is kidnapped and sent to Earth to fulfill a special mission. But who is REALLY behind the kidnapping??
I can't tell you. You'll just have to read RaShelle's book and find out what happens with Venus. Does she succeed? Who should she trust? Why oh why is there another love triangle with hot guys and cliffhanger?

What I liked:
Venus being human and confused by it
The story of Venus' gods
The boots, where can I get some?

Didn't like:
The bad guy; he's evil
Venus being so mopey (though I understand why)
Some info dumping
Needed one more edited

Rating: PG 16
V: Yes
L: Yes but not "human" swearing
S: No but sensual scenes

This post is part of a great blog tour! Check it out:


RASHELLE WORKMAN lives with her husband, three children and three dogs. When she gets a quiet moment alone, she enjoys reading about faraway places. And, in case you were wondering, yes, she does believe there is other life out in the Universe.

25% test:
""C'mon, hurry up." Dervinias stalked out of the house, grateful for a break from the electronic dance garnage shaking the walls. Three of his supporters followed. One was Kelvin, the large lug he wasn't sure about. The others were called Tawny and Selena. He went past the steaming hot tub full of screaming girls in bikinis and smelly chlorine and headed toward the far end of the yard.
"Hey, baby," one of the wet girls called, waving. Stephanie was her name. Dervinias rememered. Hot body. She'd make a perfect candidate for his plan--whether she wanted to or not. They had Trig together. He ignored her, for now, and continued toward a large tree.

The bark appeared thick and brittle. Almost all of the leaves had fallen. they crunched under his feet sending a faint tang of nutmeg into the air. At the tree, he stopped and pressed his back against its trun, propping a foot.
"What is it, Dervinias?" Tawny asked, looking peeved. He knew she wasn't happy with the group dynamic--Chev being his leading lady.
He let a smile curve his lips. "I have a job for the three of you."
His father had failed to mention that the princess's Formytian had followed her to Earth. That made killing the girl even more difficult. The over-protective guardian had discovered the treachery and followed her. His exuberance would be the death of him.
"Tell us," Tawny said in whispered excitement. he knew she lusted after the chance to kill. Though she'd never know, that was the reason she hadn't been chosen to rule by his side.
"Well, darling, before we can move forward with our plan, you have to kill a Kelarian princess. You think you can handle that?"
