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 definitely not what see seems. And the truth will test not only Finnikin's faith in her . . . but in himself.
The characters were amazing. Finnikin was smart and an interesting person to read about. Evanjalin was also very interesting. I liked the relationship that builds between them and how they weren't best friends forever in five pages. That their relationship took most of the book to fully work out. The plot has it's slow spots, but overall is a compelling and entertaining. I kept on looking at the map at the beginning of the book and trying to figure out, where in the blazes they were at times. The world of Skuldendore was original. The writing was phenomenal. I seriously wasn't sure if Marchetta would be able to write fantasy, but she was and it was amazing. I recommend this book to those that love fantasy and those that don't. You will not be disappointed.
I didn't care about any of the characters until more than halfway through, when I sort of kind of had a little empathy for Evanjalin, when I wasn't wanting to strangle her. I pretty much hated Finnikin the whole way through, Topher was one-dimensional, Trevanion (what guy in this kind of world calls his father by his name to his face?) was all right but just kind of there. Froi was completely unlikable, until the very, very end when I had maybe a tiny bit of sympathy for him. Sort of. Evanjalin was manipulative and schizophrenic, going from teary-eyed sweetness incarnate one minute to verbally and mercilessly eviscerating the other characters the next. And then random things would happen like, everyone accuses her of lying because she apparently walks the sleep when she's not supposed to be able to, when just a short while before she'd revealed that she had done it before when she shouldn't have been able to. But of course the other characters conveniently forgot about that. I guess because it would improve the drama?
The plot felt cliche (a prophecy; a young boy who has lost his parents traveling with a wise old mentor; a headstrong, beautiful young woman who is more than she seems to be; banding together to go on a quest to save the kingdom, etc. etc.). The names were awkward (Skuldenore?Read more ›
