Synopsis: (Skip this part if you haven't read the other two books in the series)
"The climactic conclusion of Printz Award winner Melina Marchetta’s epic fantasy trilogy!
Separated from the girl he loves and has sworn to protect, Froi and his companions travel through Charyn searching for Quintana and building an army that will secure her unborn child’s right to rule. While in the valley between two kingdoms, Quintana of Charyn and Isaboe of Lumatere come face-to-face in a showdown that will result in heartbreak for one and power for the other. The complex tangle of bloodlines, politics, and love introduced in Finnikin of the Rock and Froi of the Exiles coalesce into an engrossing climax in this final volume."
If you're longing for more (like I am!):
Read the prologue of Quintana of Charyn on Melina Marchetta's website.
See the beautiful review written in verse by Jo at Weartheoldcoat.
I really like that the cover of Quintana of Charyn matches the other two US book versions in the Lumatere Chronicles - Finnikin of the Rock and Froi of the Exiles. Also, each weapon is a great reflection of the person holding it, especially Quintana's, because she's a fair bit more savage than Finnikin and Froi (actually I would never use that word to describe Finnikin). Quintana's expression also does a great job at capturing who she is. In that picture, I think she's saying, "If you mess with me and mine, I will cut your heart out." I wouldn't want to get in her way.
If you haven't read these books yet, you need to pick them up NOW!
She looks so savage and fierce! Love, love, love!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for participating.
YES! I love her expression. Quintana is awesome. I'm so happy that we get some of her voice in this next book. And I am so excited to be part of this cover reveal!Delete
I'm excited to read these!ReplyDelete
(I skipped reading. I feel like you were totally talking to me.)
The entire post was for you, friend! Did you notice where I encouraged you to read this series ASAP?Delete
Yay! GREAT first cover reveal post, woo hoo! Can't wait! Did you check your inbox today? Info about ARCS....ReplyDelete
Of course! I was all over that :).Delete
Yayy, the cover is out! :D I love the Australian Covers a lot more than the US ones and I couldn't wait for this to release in the US so I've ordered it from Australia so I can read it early, but the cover of this one is just beautiful. I love the green and the arrow and fierce look of determination on the face of Quintana is just perfect. I'm sure this will be a wonderfully satisfying conclusion to this trilogy - it's Marchetta after all! ;)ReplyDelete
I prefer the AU covers as well. But I like to see that these match. I've also ordered this from Fishpond and I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival!! I am not even worried about whether I will like this book or not. I trust MM that much!Delete
I'm not going to lie, I like the Aussie covers about 10x more than the US ones, but this one is probably the best of the three.ReplyDelete
I agree with everything you said here. Have you read Froi yet?Delete
