Some Books Ago: Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

If you realize, every Tuesday I post about the new books I discover. So, I wanted to give a shout out to all those books published some years ago, that maybe some readers may have forgotten.

I've been dying to read this book for a long time now, but for some reason I still haven't read it. I've heard nothing but good things about Finnikin of the Rock, so if you haven't read it either, do it soon!

Finnikin of the Rock was published on September 29th 2008 by Viking Australia


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.



  1. I really want to read this series!! Everyone seems to love Melina Marchetta but I have yet to read anything by her. I'm definitely saving up for this :D

  2. Love this book! I still need to finish the last book in the series, though. This reminds me - what have I been waiting for?

  3. I loved this book so much! I think I liked this first book better than the other two, but it's an amazing YA fantasy series --one of my favorites!

  4. I loved this series to pieces, it becomes better and better with each book. The story is crazy and amazing and gruesome and beautiful, all at once!
