Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Fantasy lovers will enjoy the excitement and hope Levy has more adventures in the offing." Booklist, ALA
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Levy's first novel centers on Daniel Taylor, who is ripped from the world he knows and catapulted to Lithia, a beautiful but war-torn realm. There, not only can the youth communicate with animals telepathically, but he soon becomes embroiled in a fierce conflict beween two claimants to the throne. Through judicious use of his talent and increasing self-reliance, Daniel is able to help end the strife and fulfill the mysterious quest for which he was originally sent to Lithia. The neatly characterized animals Daniel befriends along the way (who become his own private army) offer diverting comic relief--especially in the case of Me, a small poisonous snake who is terrified of being stepped on. A well-founded fantasy with abundant action. Ages 10-14. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-- On his way home from school in a raging snowstorm, Daniel, 13, is knocked unconscious by a strange, Z-shaped bolt of lightning. When he awakens, it is in an unfamiliar world filled with strange animals and in the midst of a civil war. Daniel discovers he is an Empath who can communicate mentally with the creatures, a skill that saves his life on several occasions. Leaders of the factions try to convince him of the rightness of their causes. Of course, he makes the right choice, and, with the aid of the samkits, a race of intelligent cats, helps his side to triumph. Wounded in battle, Daniel loses consciousness again and comes to in his own world, where he finally finds his way home. Although there is no great depth of characterization, the story is well paced, with some nice touches of humor. Since it is shorter than most books of this genre, it also may appeal to junior high reluctant readers. --Li Stark, North Castle Public Library, Armonk, NY
Chris Sherman
Worried that his younger sister may be stranded at home alone during a blizzard, 13-year-old Daniel convinces his principal to let him leave school early. On the way home, he is struck by lightning and awakes in the kingdom of Lithia, astounded to discover that he can communicate telepathically with the strange and beautiful animals he encounters. This talent is immediately useful in saving his life, but it becomes even more important when he becomes embroiled in a bitter civil war between the kingdom's regent, Resson, whose daughter, Jeanine, Daniel befriends, and Lauren, the rightful heiress to the throne, whom Resson has accused of murdering her parents. With the help of a deadly but amusing snakelike wyerin and intelligent wildcats, the samkits, Daniel brings about an alliance between Lauren and Jeanine and foils Resson. He eventually also gains a better understanding of his relationship with his brilliant but difficult sister. Although Daniel seems too insightful and clever at the outset of the story, once he is in Lithia, engaged in nonstop adventures with interesting creatures, he becomes more believable. Fantasy lovers will enjoy the excitement and hope Levy has more adventures in the offing.

    Amazing

    I first read this book in 6th grade. I fell inlove with it. I am now 17, and this book, even though I can now breeze through it very quickly, is still one of my favourites.

    Escape from Exile Excites!!!

    Along with T.A. Barron's The Lost Years of Merlin Trilogy, this one, by Robert Levy, is among my favorite of favorites. After reading the book, which didn't take long because it was pretty short, I didn't know what to say, except that I WANTED MORE!!! Maybe there will be a sequel, i don't know, but this book was excellent. I kept having dreams about the samkits and about wyerins & I couldn't get over how great this book was. Now I'm in high school, and I can't find it anywhere! If it comes out in paperback, I'll be able to afford it, hehehe. Long Live Levy!!! I hope he writes more for me, the biggest fantasy aficionada in the universe!!!

    Totally sweet book

    This is the best book I have ever read but it extremely hard to find. I read it once in 4th grade and could never find it again. In short read this book.
