Quintana of Charyn

Incredible ending to an AMAZING trilogy!!!

Boy did this last book have me on edge. 
What am I talking about, all 3 books of this trilogy had me on edge!!

I can not stress to you guys enough just
 how much I loved this trilogy! 
It captivated and stole my heart from the very
 beginning with Finnikin of the Rock, 
Had my emotions going ballistic with Froi of the Exiles 
and my mind blown with Quintana of Charyn.

This story was so beautifully written and perfectly crafted. Marchetta was able to makes this fantasy story feel so remarkably realistic. With her vivid world building and her ability to create such mesmerizing characters that will bewitch you, nestling comfortably in your hearts to stay! Which in my opinion was the best thing about the whole trilogy. How Marchetta was able to create new characters along the way but maintain using the same ones we all came to love, from the very beginning, throughout all three books.

Marchetta'a writing and story-telling was so intense. My emotions were being squeezed like a stress ball, over and over again!! Angry when there was fighting, crying when there was sadness, the yearning and heat I felt when there was romance, and complete excitement when there was joy and happiness!

I'm not here to tell you everything that happened in this book or this trilogy. I'm simply here to tell you how much I enjoyed the books and how much I really want y'all to go out and read them, that's all!! So please, today, if you haven't read them, PLEASE DO!!!


Froi of the Exiles

Froi of the Exiles is Exceptional!!!

Another mind blowing masterpiece by Melina Marchetta.
Just like book 1, of The Lumatere Chronicles,
 book 2 is just as amazing!
I can not show enough praise for these books! 
I just absolutely adore them. Marchetta's writing flows 
likes lyrics to a beautiful song, 
keeping you captivated and thriving with emotions.
Thank goodness there 
is another book to this series
 because I am not ready to let go yet or ever!!!!

This book had me in tears, snot everywhere!!
No I'm not ashamed either.
I went to bed dreaming of it sad that 

the story is almost over and that there's 
only one more book til we have to part.

I have book 3, Quintana of Charyn, waiting on 
my bookshelf to be read but I'm going to hold off. 
I need to let Froi of the Exiles settle in. 
Plus if I hold off it'll keep me from
 having to say goodbye so soon!!

I truly recommend these books to everyone. 
Even if your not a huge fan of fantasy, 
you'll find yourself engaged in 
Marchetta's writing. 
Though it's high fantasy there's bold
 realism and with a complex plot
that any reader will love!!

           This is a courageous, intriguing, Epic tale 
with romance and adventure that no one can deny!!
