Hearth: Exile - M.R. Jenks I started this book during a break from studying for my finals. A few pages into this book and I knew that I wasn't going to be doing much studying anymore. This book held my interest throughout, and at times I was completely wrapped up in it. The characters are compelling and I really came to root for them. I have to say that I connected the most with Page and loved reading her backstory. The more I learned about the characters the more I cared about them.M.R. Jenks did a great job telling this story. It really flowed well and there didn't seem to be any lull in the story for me. I have to say that my favorite part of this story was Page's backstory. While I was reading that part I was so hooked that an earthquake wouldn't have torn my attention away from the book.I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in this series.
