Confused by her powers, Hailey searches for answers but finds only more questions, until a mysterious visitor shows up at Gram’s house, claiming to be Hailey’s aunt Prairie.
So this was a bit good.
It’s actually a short book compared to the other novels so I was able to read the book quickly and get to the end. All three in the family are descended from the Banished who are people with special powers who emigrated from Ireland. Hailey was trying so hard to get answers, even taking insults from Milla Morrie and her crew. Start reading Banished on your Kindle in under a minute. I was satisfied with how Banished ended but was excited when I learned that there will be another book coming out.
It just does not add anything to the story or the writing. The other part is that baniahed characters are just in general really well done. As far as the writing goes it was good, and the story does have some potential, but I just couldn’t connect to Hailey.
But I do know that over-using them is sloppy. Write a customer review. See all 30 reviews. From this point on the action really starts. Feb 03, Swati rated it really liked it.
As a librarian, I can probably find out about these easier than most. Yes, I will be reading it.
Sophie Littlefield :: Writer
This friends are rich and bitchy, but Hailey wants to be “accepted” as a normal student in her new school so she befriends them.
So many people would’ve given up and become part of the cycle of poverty and despair—the same cycle Hailey saw every day at school and within her community.
This gripping novel littllefield thriller writer Sophie Littlefield blazes a trail from small-town Sophle to the big city as Hailey battles an evil greater than she ever imagined, while discovering strengths she never knew she had.
As the story goes on we get little bits of information to all those questions. The only time I have was in the show Charmed. That they ought to have read, but which has been passed over because not enough people are talking about it. Hailey never knew her dead mother, and she has no idea who her father was, but at least she has her four-year-old foster brother, Chub.
She has nice clothes, lives in a nice home, has people that love her and not beat her. A story nanished could easily have been told in one book instead of two. Sometimes baanished don’t live up to the first book and that’s definitely not the case here.
I love how the author gave more depth on other characters and did not just focused on Hailey. Nope, not worth it.
Everything was resolved in the first one, except that Bryce and the enemies where still alive and Kaz and Hailey’s relationship status was unclear.
Banished Series by Sophie Littlefield
On her own she’s realizing she has the ability to heal and then her aunt that she didn’t even realize she had shows up and confirms her healing power and tells her about her family’s past history of coming to the United States and Poland from Ireland. Hailey was kinda annoying at first, especially when she was trying to befriend those bitchy whores girls. The ending was lacking I think, not even the ending, but the climax.
Those are the series that I should read in 10 years when all the books are written and I can just read all of them at once. I liked the incorporation of historical elements, and that kind of fairy-tale, old magic idea Littlefield plays with.
Share your thoughts with other customers. Jan 01, Arooj rated it liked it. I admired her character. This book is seriously a rollercoaster ride. And then the twist is thrown at you, just out of the blue.
She has so much more than what she had before. But in that time, I’ve had some truly amazing books recommended to me. Because as Hailey will soon find out, their power to heal is just the beginning. However I do remember that I liked the book, so I was interesting in seeing if I’ll like the second book. Going in, I knew what to expect in terms of what the book would be about and who it would involve, and for that, I wasn’t as enthralled with Unforsaken as I was with Banished but that isn’t to say I was no less entertained.
I have never heard of this book before starting it. The minute Hailey sets her eyes on her, she runs littlwfield in the other direction which is a bit odd to be honest.

Hailey and her little family—Aunt Prairie and adopted brother Chub—are hardly settled into their new lives in Milwaukee before they are discovered and set upon by forces wishing to use their supernatural gifts, as descendants of the Banished, for evil purposes. Finally Hailey has a loving family, nice clothes, and real friends. I specifically love the chapters where it concentrated on Chub. Hailey is a Sophomore in High School. Billed as a “companion,” this is not so much a sequel to Banished as it is a retread.
If you are a bit of a misfit, like myself, you may especially enjoy Hailey and the “family” of other gifted Banished from Ireland?
So the plot of Banished is pretty typical, and reminded me a lot of the lovely Kelley Armstrong’s Darkest Powers. You may not love it as much as I do, although I hope you will, but it is still definitely worth a read. There are men who want to sell these zombies to foreign militar Hailey is one of the Banished.
