Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
I had a tougher time picking this month’s winner, since I read a few books I really enjoyed, but I settled on Finnikin of the Rock. It had been a while since I’d read a really great epic fantasy and this one definitely fit the bill!
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.
Now that you know what I read in January, here’s how those books fit into the various challenges I’ve entered for 2014:
