Finnikin of the Rock

Finnikin of the Rock  - Melina Marchetta I did like this book. I have to give it to her, Melina Marchetta is great at writing wonderful, in depth characters. There is a lot of info dumb in the beginning of the book, and Evanjalin did annoy me with her meddling ways. But I enjoyed the concept of the Lumatere people in exile, there are a lot of comparisons to draw with exiles these days.
I would have liked to go on to read the second book, but after finding out that it's about the boy who tried to rape Evanjalin, I lost all my interest in this and future books in the series. Too bad because I really wanted to continue with the story of the Lumatere.
