The curse on Lumatere has been lifted, but Froi's journey is just beginning. 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 with a warrior's discipline. 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 what they seem, and must unravel both the dark bonds of kinship and the mysteries of a half-mad princess. In this barren and mysterious place, he will discover there is a song sleeping in his blood ... and though Froi would rather not, the time has come to listen.… (mere)

How did I not know of this series earlier. So good. ( )
  hipney | Jun 3, 2020 |
I am absolutely positively in love with this series. I think that Marchetta's writing is beautiful and nuanced and poetic. She writes characters that I can't help but feel for even if I'm hating them. She also tells a story better than most any writer out there. Her stories are complex and riviting and surprising. She puts in twists and surprises that you often don't see coming. And then she pulls at your heartstrings and makes you cry. She has all those things that make up a wonderful author.

This story moves the focus mainly onto Froi. We don't see much of Finnikin and Isaboe but they are there. There story also expands some on Lucien's story and that of Lady Beatriss and Trevanian. It introduces a lot of new characters and, at the same time I'm pining for the lack of Finnikin and Isaboe, I'm falling in love with the new characters. I can't wait to see how it all comes together in the final book.

If you are even the slightest bit of a fantasy fan, you need to read these books. They're great. ( )

“If we forget who we lost, then we forget who we once were, and if we forget who we once were, we lose sight of who we are now.”

It has been years since I read the first book, Finnikin of the Rock, but I had no trouble falling back into the beautiful world Melina Marchetta created. It was like I had never left even though the story starts three years after the first one ended. A lot of sequels try to summarize the first book within the second, but that wasn't the case here. Tidbits of information are dropped throughout, but they were gentle reminders that didn't take away from the current story.

I don't really remember how I felt about Froi from Finnikin of the Rock, but I absolutely loved him in this! He's so devoted to Isaboe and the kingdom of Lumatere. He's made a home for himself and would do anything to protect those he loves. However, he isn't expecting to form new relationships when he leaves on a secret mission for his queen and king. He didn't think anyone could matter to him as much, but he cannot help his feelings or how they develop.

There are not enough words to describe how magical and wonderful this world is. I cannot fathom how Melina Marchetta's mind works, or how she created something so complex and completely captivating. This book is a beast... like 600 pages, but I never wanted to stop reading. The length of Froi of the Exiles is what kept me from starting this one for so long, and I want to thank Andi for giving me the push I needed to finally commit to reading it.

I like to think I'm pretty good at figuring things out in a book before they happen, but damn... I never knew what was coming, and I was often so surprised I had to re-read a few pages to make sure I really understood what was going on. There are so many things happening at once, and everyone has a secret (or five). It wasn't until everyone started explaining themselves that a complete picture was formed.

This book also made me feel. They weren't always good feelings either, because there are things that happen that make me want to be a very violent person. I don't know how Froi was able to restrain himself at times, and I know his bond had to be strong to keep himself from lashing out and killing everyone. Quintana broke my heart, and what happens to her is cruel and despicable. Gah, I can't even talk about this without getting worked up.

Quintana was a fascinating character that cannot be easily explained. She's so much more than people think, and my heart repeatedly broke for her. Despite everything she has lived through, she still remains a fierce force to be reckoned with.

I love all the characters in this book, and it would be impossible for me to list each one and what I liked about them. We see various perspectives throughout the book (though mostly Froi's), and it was wonderful to watch each of them as the story progresses. I'm so happy Marchetta included everyone from the first book, and that we get to see what's happening in their lives, too.

Have I said enough? Maybe. Can I say enough? Definitely not. I could go on and on about everything I loved about this book, but I'll simply ask that you read it for yourself. It's something that needs to be experienced by you and not just talked about by me. Technically, you could skip Finnikin of the Rock and just read Froi of the Exiles, because they can stand on their own. However, I would recommend reading them both so you can stay in Marchetta's incredibly enchanting world just a little bit longer.

4.5 stars. Probably 5 if I could help comparing it to Finnikin. But, honestly, I just really really love Marchetta's writing style. What I loved most was the juxtaposition between Finnikin (in the first book) and Froi in this book. Two less alike male protangonists written by the same author, you will never find! I found myself slowly (slowly...) learning to love Froi and becoming more captivated as I read. ( )

4.5 stars.
I loved this so much more than Finnikin of the Rock!
The writing style still bothered me - hence the half-star docking - but I guess I became indifferent to it after a hundred pages or so, because I was just so intrigued by the story.
I loved Froi and Quintana way more than I did Finnikin and Isaboe, both of whom kind of annoyed me. Froi and Quintana were so unique and obviously at war with themselves, and I just couldn't help but love them, love them, love them! Their romance blooming was delicious to watch, and I just held my breath, waiting for it to happen. It was so well done, it pulled right at my heartstrings.
And the story kept my curiosity piqued most of the time, and I liked almost all of the secondary characters, so I was simply enjoying every moment. I'm so glad that I persevered and read through this book.
I'm not sure, however, how I feel about the ending. It was a little abrupt and confusing, left me hanging, but I am very intrigued into continuing the third book of the trilogy so I guess it was okay.
Overall, great read, and highly recommended! ( )
