Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta

 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.

Once again Melina Marchetta blew my mind away. When I heard that she was going to write the second book in the Lumatere Chronicles with Froi as the main character I was a little surprised. Froi wasn’t a very likable character in Finnikin of the Rock until the last part of the book. But if someone can take a character from zero to hero is Marchetta. And Froi is my new favorite hero.

I was fascinated with all her new characters. My favorite was Quintana. She was just WOW. Everything about her was beautifully insane. I’m talking inner beauty because Marchetta lets us know that Quintana is not that pretty. Another awesome thing about Froi of the Exiles is that it has different points of view, including several people from Lumatere. So while I knew what was going on in Charyn with Froi, I got a glimpse of what was going on in Lumatere.

Everything about Froi of the Exiles was amazing including the ending
