Finnikin of the Rock and his guardian, Sir Topher, have not been home to their beloved Lumatere for ten years. Not since the dark days when the royal family was murdered and the kingdom put under a terrible curse. But then Finnikin is summoned to meet Evanjalin, a young woman with an incredible claim: the heir to the throne of Lumatere, Prince Balthazar, is alive.
Evanjalin is determined to return home and she is the only one who can lead them to the heir. As they journey together, Finnikin is affected by her arrogance . . . and her hope. He begins to believe he will see his childhood friend, Prince Balthazar, again. And that their cursed people will be able to enter Lumatere and be reunited with those trapped inside. He even believes he will find his imprisoned father.
But Evanjalin is not what she seems. And the truth will test not only Finnikin's faith in her . . . but in himself.
Finnikin of the Rock, you’re one of those books that deserve a shrine! <3
Would you agree with me if I say that reading is a journey? That even if you’re already tired, you chose to go on hoping that along the way, you’ll find the next great (1M X) book. It has been so long since I’ve read one that rendered me in a state of immobility. The last time was when I finished reading HP 7. Ever since that day, I was constantly searching for the next great one…the one that would be worthy of my lack of sleep, tears, heartache and even my health. I was on the verge of giving up when at last, I found it.
Now guys, I don’t care if you call me lazy with this review. Words are inadequate to describe my Lumateran adventure together with Finnikin, Isaboe, Froi, Trevanion and Sir Topher. I wouldn’t risk tainting the reputation of Finnikin of the Rock with my very poor writing. Instead I am going to treat you to a GIF filled review.
If you love riding an emotional rollercoaster, then Finnikin of the Rock is a must read.
Melina Marchetta, you are the goddess complete.
