Today I am introducing you to the wonderful Claire over at Claire Reads and she has kindly offered to write a guest post for all of you today.
I can’t thank her enough for helping me out!
The Lumatere Chronicles
Book One – Finnikin of the Rock
Book Two – Froi of the Exiles
Book Three – Quintana of Charyn
I first read Finnikin, purely because Melina Marchetta is my all-time favourite author. I am really glad that I did read it. It was fantastic, and Froi was even better!
Finnikin of the Rock tells the story of Finnikin, a 19 year old boy who begins a journey with a stranger, Evanjalin. She tells Finnikin that she can lead him to Prince Balthazar, the heir to Lumatere, the one who was supposedly slaughtered 10 years ago. Along with his friend and mentor, they roam Lumatere helping citizens and searching for the truth.
Froi of the Exiles takes place 3 years after Finnikin of the Rock finishes, and watches Froi travel to Charyn to kill the king. What follows in a journey that will change Froi’s life, and everyone else’s too. Told mainly from Froi’s POV, it also switches back to other characters in Lumatere, so you can keep track of everything else that is going on. Boy does it leave it on a cliff-hanger for the last book of the series.
Quintana of Charyn is set to be released October 2012 in Australia, and March 2013 in the US, and will be set starting three weeks after Froi finished.
I hope everyone will check out these fantastic books, and love them as much as I did!
