Waiting on Wednesday (26)

Now, I'm not lazy when it comes to a Melina Marchetta novel. ;D She is my favorite author ever. I cannot wait for this book!! It's the sequel to Finnikin of the Rock, which I loved so much.

Title: Froi of the Exiles (Lumatere Chronicles, #2)
Author: Melina Marchetta
Release Date: October 3, 2011
Page Count: 608
Publisher: Viking Australia

"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 Alibrandi, Saving Francesca, On the Jellicoe Road and The Piper's Son."
