Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta

Blood sings to blood, Froi . . .
Those born last will make the first . . .
For Charyn will be barren no more.

Three years after the curse on Lumatere was lifted, Froi has found his home… Or so he believes…

Fiercely loyal to the Queen and Finnikin, Froi has been trained roughly and lovingly by the Guard sworn to protect the royal family, and has learned to control his quick temper. But when he is sent on a secretive mission to the kingdom of Charyn, nothing could have prepared him for what he finds. Here he encounters a damaged people who are not who they seem, and must unravel both the dark bonds of kinship and the mysteries of a half-mad Princess.

And in this barren and mysterious place, he will discover that there is a song sleeping in his blood, and though Froi would rather not, the time has come to listen.

Gripping and intense, complex and richly imagined, Froi of the Exiles is a dazzling sequel to Finnikin of the Rock, from the internationally best-selling and multi-award-winning author of Looking for AlibrandiSaving FrancescaOn the Jellicoe Road and The Piper’s Son.

 

 

 

 

I honestly have nothing to say about this book. There is nothing I could say that I haven’t said in my other gushing reviews, nothing I could say that many other great reviewers haven’t said.

The characters are perfect, the writing is perfect, the plot is perfect. The entire book is frankly, lovely and goregous.

This review is worthless, but I’ll use this space to say something: please read Marchetta’s books if you haven’t. Please.

5 stars.
