Hybrids, outcasts, of their own world. Five children, Josh, Bailey, Ella, Eric and Blaire, live on planet Mellania. They each have one human parent and one Mellanian. Their partial alien DNA means they possess unique powers, making them both an asset and a threat to the Mellanian government. Captain Melsom, Mellania's ruler, works beside Lucia, a malicious demon, to eliminate the young hybrids.
The operation involves transferring the children to Earth where they will be immediately killed. Lucia is to be transported with them to oversee their termination. Upon arrival, things don't work out quite as expected.
The children have to draw on their powers to survive now, all the time trying to find Lucia before she can wreak her own chaos upon Earth.
But just who is controlling the situation and for what reason suddenly becomes very clouded. Even those closest to them begin to drift apart, and it becomes increasingly clear that nothing is what it seems.

Exile by Sophie Breeze is a great book. It is the first book in a series of unknown length as the second has yet to be released. The cover, however, says nothing about it being part of a series. Please keep in mind as well that Sophie was only nine years old when she started writing Exile, no small feat.
The style of this book is rather unique to me as it doesn't seem to hold to any one genre. It starts out as a science-fiction heavy in politics and with an assassination. Then as the story moves on it seems to take a more fantasy element with a question.
This book is probably best for young adults with an interest isn’t science fiction/fantasy. Those who have enjoyed the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series should enjoy this book as well since they share many elements. I enjoyed this book very much and the twists actually surprised me.
