The Character Discussion
by Kelly Wyre & AF Henley
Welcome to the Breaker (Exile, Volume 1) Blog Tour and Giveaway! We’re both super excited about this new release and thrilled to be able to share it with you. Throughout this tour, we’re going to be introducing many of the characters within, and associated with, Exile’s bizarre shores, as well as introducing Exile itself. Then we’re going to top that off with a quick little teaser.
However, before we get into any of that we wanted to remind you that we’ve got a couple of awesome giveaways going along with the tour so be sure to read through to the end to find out how you could win either a Silver-plated Starfish Anklet (just by leaving a single comment!), or the grand prize of a signed, print copy of Breaker, a coordinates bracelet with the Believe. Seek. Prove. reminder so you can always find your way back to the island of Exile, and a $20 gift certificate to the Less Than Three Press book market.
The Character Discussion
AF Henley: *looks up, petrified* What do you mean, “YOU start it this time?”
Kelly Wyre: I think I meant exactly that. And now I’m questioning my life choices. As usual. Ahem. HI EVERYBODY! We’re here to keep on discussing Exile: Breaker characters. Who’s up today, Henley?
AFH: Loaded question, Kelly.
KW: *eyes Henley* Hm. Do you need a second? Does today’s character just… do it for you?
AFH: Aw, Kelly. All our characters do it for me. But Mithra *is* a pretty cool one.
KW: I like her.
AFH: She does the thing… with the thing… that we wrote about.
KW: Yes. That thing. The give-the-Barrier-its-creepy-ass-vibes-thing. Mithra is one of the people who maintains the Barrier on the Island, which is the thing that helps guard it from the overly-militarized-completely-freaked-out-and-trigger-happy world. Unfortunately, it makes Eddie see the Kraken.
AFH: Damn. She’s good at what she does then.
A great big thank you to The Blogger Girls for hosting us today, and another to you for joining in on the fun. Best of luck with the giveaway and we hope you enjoyed the post!
Until next time,
Kelly Wyre and AF Henley ❤
In the wake of several near-cataclysmic events, humanity created the Cure, a DNA-altering antidote to death by disease and old age. But all cures come with side effects: a small percentage of the population develops a wide range of powers, some of which are lethal to others, and some which are lethal to the wielder.
These people are called the Estranged, hunted and shunned, safe only on the Island of Exile. It is here that Kaeva and Eddie meet—and where they set a prophecy in motion, quite possibly sealing their own demise, and even the end of Exile.
Notes: contains some explicit content and includes thoughts and discussions of past and potential suicide
An Excerpt from Breaker
“Yes. I am.” For some reason that made Kaeva feel better. The radio in the bag’s mesh pocket squawked.
“Control to intake, over,” a voice said.
Kaeva yanked out the radio and hit the button. “Intake, over.”
“We’re getting energy spikes in the Barrier near your location.”
“And this is me telling you I told you so, over.”
There was a brief silence. “Kaeva?” A woman spoke. “This is Mithra. What’s your status, over.”
Kaeva heaved a silent sigh of relief. Mithra. Sanity. “Intake’s here. Preparing to get him to Med, over.”
“Whoa,” Eddie interrupted. “Intake? Wait, what? “
“Hush,” Kaeva said in aside to Eddie, who thankfully smacked his lips shut for the first time since they’d met.
“Any issues, over?” Mithra asked.
“A few, over.”
“Pain in my ass, over.” Kaeva said. Eddie flinched and squirmed, but stayed silent.
“Everything is, Mr. Downs,” Mithra observed. “Orders are to take him in. I suggest you do it fast before you blow the western side, and I have to kick your ass, over.”
“I’d welcome you to try, over.”
“Don’t tempt me, over.”
“Fuck off, over.”
The radio went silent. Calmer, Kaeva glared at Eddie. “This is Exile, kid. Congratu-fuckin-lations. I’m to take you to the medical center for processing. You don’t come with me? Fine. You get shot by patrol. You don’t want that? Follow me.” Kaeva put his back to Eddie and started heading up the dunes.

Henley was born with a full-blown passion for run-on sentences, a zealous indulgence in all words descriptive, and the endearing tendency to overuse punctuation. Since the early years Henley has been an enthusiastic writer, from the first few I-love-my-dog stories to the current leap into erotica. A self-professed Google genius, Henley lives for the hours spent digging through the Internet for ‘research purposes’ which, more often than not, lead seven thousand miles away from first intentions but bring Henley to new discoveries and ideas that, once seeded, tend to flourish. Henley has been proudly publishing with Less Than Three Press since 2012.
