The second book in the suspenseful, intelligent Dove Chronicles series is perfect for fans of Ender's Game and The Maze Runner.

Phaet Theta is a fugitive. Hiding in plain sight on the drowned planet Earth, Phaet discovers the rugged beauty of the world her ancestors once called home. All her life, she’s been taught to fear the “Earthbound,” and their generosity and kindness surprise and touch Phaet.
 
But when the Lunar Bases attack her friend Wes’s village, Phaet’s past catches up with her, and she’s forced to choose: stay on Earth and fight, or stow away on a Moon-bound ship so she can save her brother and sister from the government that killed their mother. This thrilling sequel to Dove Arising plunges readers deeper into this complex and haunting world where freedom comes at a chilling price.  


“Phaet is an engaging character, with whom the readers should readily identify.”—VOYA 

“Karen Bao is an incredibly talented young writer. Beautiful prose and one of the most interesting main characters I've read. Dove Arising marks the debut of a promising new talent. I loved the story, and I can't wait to read more!” —Christopher Paolini, New York Times bestselling author of Eragon on Dove Arising

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Exciting Sequel! "Dove Exiled" the intriguing and absorbing second novel in the "Dove Chronicles" opens with the threat of an attack on Saint Odan where Phaet Theta has taken refuge with Wes's Earthbound family after escaping the Moon. In an atmosphere of harmony and high-ideals Wes's father keeps the peace with the Sanctuarists an unobtrusive law force but their hatred for the "demons" on the Moon is all too apparent. As Phaet under the guise of the Pacifia refugee Fay blends into Odan society she learns not only of an alliance between Pacifia and Base IV to attack Saint Oda to transform it into a strategic military base, but of the ongoing torture of her brother Cygnus. With the Lunar Militia hot on her trail, she makes an agonizing decision when an opportunity to return to the Moon arises. Although longing for Wes after admitting their feelings for each other and knowing the Committee wants her dead, Phaet's determined to save her brother and continue Dovetail's rebellion. The plot is fast-paced and action-packed as Phaet and Wes not only struggle against the alliance intent on destroying Saint Odan and killing the islanders, but she and Umbriel break into the prison to free Cygnus on Base I only to find him missing and the militia determined to capture her. With every challenge, deception and betrayal that Phaet faces the plot thickens as the intensity and suspense builds. In an emotionally-charged setting as Phaet haunted by guilt struggles to stay rational, copes with the loss of friends and fights for her life, the plot moves quickly and smoothly to an explosive confrontation at the end that begs for a third book. In an exciting story that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end, even the romance is heightened when Phaet who's about to say goodbye to Wes finally admits her deep feelings for him. As in all well-written and intoxicating plots the complexity and realism of its characters infuse the growing drama with passion and high-energy and this story is no exception. Phaet (aka Fay) driven by guilt to return to the moon is determined, resilient and brave knowing the Committee wants her dead. A sixteen year old who's action-oriented and says little, she has to deal with her new celebrity status as “Girl Sage,” a symbol of the rebellion. Wes Carlyle duty-bound to protect his family is kind, caring and accepting, frank about his feelings for Phaet, even though he knows they'll be separated. Of the other characters in the story Murray Carlyle haunted by her scarring is angry and broken; Phaet's sister Anka defiant and wilful; Eri Phi loyal and selfless; and Umbriel protective, stubborn and honest. I loved "Dove Exiled" a thrilling sequel to "Dove Arising" and can't wait to see where Karen Bao will take the plot and characters next.

Beautiful prose and one of the most interesting main characters I've read. Dove Arising marks the debut of a promising new talent. I loved the story, and I can't wait to read more!” —Christopher Paolini, New York Times bestselling author of Eragon “Newcomer Bao’s off-world setting and world-building details are intriguing.”—Publishers Weekly   "Characters are well developed, especially strong-willed Phaet, and an even pace will keep teens turning pages. Fans of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game, Veronica Roth’s Divergent and Marie Lu’s Legend should flock to this well-written debut effort by 19-year-old Bao." —School Library Journal "Until just recently, the number of formidable young adult authors who got published before they were out of their teens was extremely small: Christopher Paolini and Isamu Fukui. Well, it is time to make room for a third name in this elite list: Karen Bao." —VOYA “The 20-year-old Bao writes a brilliant new YA heroine in a world of true science fiction.” —Bustle.com   “Phaet is a compelling, ‘do what needs doing’ kind of girl, and her desperation to succeed and secure her family’s future is palpable…Revelations at the end pave the way for a sequel.”—Booklist.com   “Fans of The 5th Wave, Divergent, and Legend will love this smart, futuristic thriller.” —Justine
