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.

3.0 I will not be continuing on with the series...
This is the first of Melina Marchetta's books I've read, although I have seen 'Looking for Alibrandi' and I quite enjoyed it. Finnikin of the Rock was not special. It was cookie-cutter fantasy, with nothing new. It left me feeling flat, bored and rather underwhelmed. I enjoyed the world building, bu...

4.0 Finnikin of the Rock
Finally read this series after hearing about the author/this series a lot in various groups. I always meant to read it but just hadn't gotten to it yet. Overall I liked it. I think it did have some issues and was a bit on the anti-climatic side as stories go. Certain things did seem to come togeth...
