an historical fiction review

Overlapping the events of The King Stag, Exiles serves as a portrait of what became of John Swale and Elizabeth Clinton since Folville’s Law.  A brief work, Exiles illustrates the results of the intervening years on Pilling’s leads, rather than taking his readers through the developments themselves.  The written lines are precise, the emotional colors are evocative, and readers will not be disappointed with this new connection to the protagonists of the series.

As usual, Pilling’s work is not for the romantic, but for those intrigued by history and fourteenth century politics.  The two Exiles connect political calculation to more personal, everyday drama
