This rocca is about a country called Lumaterenow cursed land which doesn’t allow anyone to enter or to leave. In the land of Skuldenore, there finnkkin a kingdom called Lumatere. The plight of the Lumaterans greatly outweighed my interest over the romance, if you can believe it. If you’d like some snippets of info on Froi’s book to tide you over until its release, check out this and this.

Finnikin is snarky, strong, smart, but also a bit hot-headed at times. I’ve heard good recommendations. The history of the land, the images Marchetta writes, everything is so vivid. I did not like the fact that Finnikin would go sleep with a whore and so would his dad d that was supposed to be acceptable? I think this book goes in hard when in comes to traditional gender roles. I feel like I’ve already wasted enough mental energy slogging through scene after unnecessary scene of melodramatic df and sweeping generalizations in place of compelling content.

Nevermind, we’ll doca them a story and they will instantly become our BFFs! We cry too much. Although I can be annoyed by their doubts yes Finnikin, I’m totally staring at you – but yes, I still love youamused by their repartee, in love with their courage, frightened for them – and sometimes, by them, they can make me feel restless, proud, mad, confused – If I you ask me to tell you one thing about them, it’d be that they never ever leave me indifferent.

Go read it, please! The kingdoms, the places, the religion, the magic I’m not sure what’ll happen if I ever dislike one of her novels, probably the sky will fall in and the world will end. My prayers have not been answered yet, Trevanion. It left a bad impression from page 1, but if the rest of the book rose above it then it could be forgiven like in Kristin Cashore’s Graceling, whose map has countries more-or-less called North, South, East ffinnikin West, but the characters and world itself make up for it.

I laughed, cried and was just amazed by the complexity of the characters in the story Marchetta tells. Books by Melina Marchetta.
