Exalted by Kandi J. Wyatt

Genre:  Young Adult, Fantasy

Source: I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.




Exalted is the third book in the Four Stars Over Ardatz series. In book one, Uprooted, we meet Hest, an orphan stable boy who believes he is sold into slavery. He learns that the money paid to his employer was compensation for the lost wages she would earn from his services.  In the second book, Blessed, we find Hest has been elevated to the highest position in the kingdom. In this third book, Exalted, we find Hest riddled with nightmares.  Having killed the father of his enemy the son seeks revenge. He wants nothing less than to destroy the King, but not before the King watches everything and everyone he loves destroyed.

If you are unfamiliar with Kandi’s books, let me tell you that she creates fantasies that feature dragons in a way you would not believe. She is a true artist.  You feel at one with the dragon’s she creates. They are so realistic they seem almost human. The bond she creates between the dragon in the book and the King is a bond that is so strong that it has the power to destroy them both, or bring them victory. You will need to read this book. Kandi has created a glossary of words in the back for the specific vocabulary her characters speak. She has created worlds so realistic you feel you are there with the characters. I have loved all of her books. However, I believe she has gone over the moon in the writing of this series. There are five more books planned in this series and I can’t wait to read them all.
