Froi of the Exiles - Melina Marchetta
Gosh, it's been so long since I finished this that I am really not sure what to say. I know I didn't love it as much as Finnikin, but it had a lot of what I loved about Finnikin in it. I love Marchetta's messy, crazy style of writing and world building - it's kind of her strength and weakness. This book rambles and meanders and yet she creates some of the most memorable, crazy, lovable characters. I felt invested in almost every single one of them! I love the cliffhanger ending and I will be reading the sequel!
