My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ever since the royal family was killed, Finnikin of the Rock has been traveling the land with his guardian. Wen he learns his best friend and the heir to the throne is alive, he follows a young woman to find him.
I enjoyed the world that Melina Marchetta created. The story-line was intriguing and kept me engaged. I love the way she weaves the different aspects of this tale together in a unique fairy tale atmosphere.
