Exile is the first book in a series from author and musician, Kevin Emerson. It’s clear that Emerson is well-versed in the inner workings of a band, but the relationship between Summer and Caleb along with Summer’s struggle to be the daughter her parents want makes Exile a bit unbalanced. Caleb’s discovery of his father is far more interesting, but is never at the forefront due to Summer being the narrator. Exile also ends abruptly and without closure to any of the arcs that were setup in order to force readers to check out the next book (Encore to an Empty Room) which is a big pet peeve of mine.
