The Exiles is the [[DevelopmentHell unfinished]] trilogy by [[MelanieRawn Melanie Rawn]]. Set on the planet of Lenfell, what has been written follows the trials of the [[RuleOfThree three]] Ambrai sisters, Glenin, Sarra and Cailet as they proceed to bring about great social and political change in their society, with a lot of death and destruction in their wake. So far only 'The Ruins of Ambrai' (1994) and 'The Mageborn Traitor' (1997) have been published, with 'The Captal's Tower' as yet unwritten. For a while it seemed ''very'' unlikely that 'The Captal's Tower' would ''ever'' be finished, as Rawn has publicly stated she's forgotten some of the plot points and backstory, but on July 23, 2014, she [[http://aidanmoher.com/blog/2014/07/news/melanie-rawn-begins-work-captals-tower/ announced]] that as soon as she was finished with writing the fifth 'Glass Thorns' book, she would begin work on 'The Captal's Tower'. She apologized for the delay, citing her struggle with clinical depression as the cause.

* MayDecemberRomance: Of a sort. Gorynel Desse is in his early 60s when [[spoiler:he dies, and Cailet is in her late teens/early twenties. She figures out he loves her (romantically) when he (for lack of a better term) downloads his brain/memories into hers to make her the new Captal.She herself expresses desire towards him, but only when he shows himself in his younger form.]]



* NotInThisForYourRevolution: Collan Rosvenir is very a very reluctant member of the Rising, at least until Sarra works her magic on him.

* GenreShift: High Fantasy, but there are significant hints that this series is far more ScienceFiction than it lets on.

* GenreShift: High Fantasy, but there are significant hints that this series is far more ScienceFiction than it lets on.on - for example, the first line on the back of the book reads "A thousand years ago, Mageborns fled prejudice and persecution to colonize the planet Lenfell - pristine, untouched, a perfect refuge for those whose powers were perceived as a threat by those not gifted with magic."

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Many characters, including Gornyel Desse.



* EmpathicWeapon: The Fifty, which act on the wielder's strongest desire- If they truly want someone dead, for example, the sword will do all in its power to make that happen.
* EveryoneIsRelated: Everyone, due to the huge mess of family trees and strict culling laws.



* IncestIsRelative: Glenin's [[spoiler: plan for her niece.]]



* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler: Cailet, I Am Your Sister, both by Sarra and Glenin.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Gorynel Desse. He's had a hand in pretty much everyone's lives, [[spoiler: and a lot of it comes to bite him in the ass.]]



* OneSteveLimit: An interesting subversion, everyone on Lenfell is named after the same 300 plus saints, and yet with a cast of thousands they're never repeated.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: The whole person less their body, and generally confined to the Dead White Forest. [[spoiler:Until the wraith of Anniyas ''eats all the others'' in a post-mortal bid for revenge.]]
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:Auvry]] takes the brunt of Glenin's killing strike at [[spoiler:Cailet]].
