Froi of the Exiles Viral Ebook As seen on The ReadventurerYou know what is sad? That Froi of the Exiles is #76 on the Goodreads list of most popular books released this October, while Silence is #1. Will Melina Marchetta ever get the acknowledgement she deserves? Will her publishers ever promote her books the way they deserve to be promoted? I mean, so much effort and money is put into hyping garbage, why not put it towards something worthy? Very few people I'd recommended this author's novels disliked them, so would it be really that risky to market them properly? Ok, I think I've reached my ranting quota for the day. Let's talk about something more heartwarming - Froi of the Exiles. Finnikin of the Rock was a fine fantasy novel in itself, but I think there is more of everything in its sequel. There is more heartache, more pain, more adventure, more mystery, more secrets, more magic, more intrigue and more madness. Three years after the breaking of the Lumateran curse Froi is sent to neighboring Charyn on a revenge mission. What first is thought to be a simple avenge-and-escape task, quickly becomes something more when Froi learns of a curse hanging over Charyn, a curse that is even more horrifying than the Lumateran one. And the person who seems to suffer the most because of it is the half-mad Princess of Charyn Quintana. Hers is the unbearable and thankless burden to save the country which is about to explode from the inside.Now, I will refrain from saying more about the plot to stay away from inadvertently revealing secrets and plot twists. Trust me, there are many. But I will tease you with a few things: Quintana - she broke my heart, a poor girl who has to serve her land by doing things most degrading; Lucian - I was ashamed of him in the beginning, I was in pain for him in the end; Froi - he has become a man of wondrous strength and depth and he might have met his match - someone of equal passion and darkness of soul. These are only a few familiar characters that took possession of my heart, but there are more, equally fierce and unforgettable - a couple of old men with dark pasts, a defiant whore, a stuttering idiot girl who finds her worth in spite of everyone calling her useless.It won't be a proper Melina Marchetta book review if I don't mention how much I cried over it. And, of course, I did quite a bit. I cried because I felt shame and of pity and in triumph.Froi of the Exiles is a huge book. It is so big, I am actually surprised it wasn't split into two, because, if you look at it, the climax of the story happens at about half way point. But for such a lengthy book, it is surprisingly unputdownable and very tightly written.You also need to know that this is only a half of the story. The cliffhanger is big, softened only by a mercifully hopeful epilogue. I remember Marchetta promised not more than a year between publications of Froi of the Exiles and Quintana of Charyn. I sure hope it's true. I foresee this wait to be quite agonizing. P.S. Many have been asking where we got this book released only in Australia at this point.

A viral Book Froi of the Exiles Sometimes I feel like Marchetta books should come with a public health warning."Marchetta Fever," it would say. "Symptoms include: pain, aching or burning in the chest region indicating a broken heart.Uncontrollable weeping, both happy and sad, may occur frequently. More serious cases run the risk of having their mind blown.This condition has no known cure."That's me. That's me with every single one of these books. I went into my local bookstore to order me some Marchetta this year. Let me explain the community I live in. The largest shopping center has, I kid you not, FIVE lingerie stores. Stores entirely devoted to selling ladies underwear and such accessories. It has one tiny bookstore. A bookstore that is going out of business. A bookstore that had no fewer than ten copies of A Shore Thing and Confessions of a Guidette. Did they have any Marchetta or Laini Taylor? No. One paperback copy of Froi of the Exiles was tucked away somewhere. This is a travesty. This should be considered a Federal Crime. The Unicorn Squad needs to get on that shit and put someone away in the Candy Cane House of Pain for violating awesomeness.Marchetta's books are more than just readable, well-written, well-characterized novels of great spirit and imagination. There is a beauty to them, a magic to them which wafts through every sentence of every page. It's not just finely crafted writing, though it is that too. It's a living, beating heart and beautiful but broken soul. Does it matter that this book was 600 pages long? Not to me. Not when every page was breath-takingly spectacular. The themes are almost always the same. Loss, pain, healing, family, loyalty. I love the complication and depth of her characterization. Whatever it is that Marchetta does, it speaks to me. It touches me in parts of my heart that I had locked away and worked hard to forget. Sometimes it hurts but she always, always remembers to patch me up again when she's finished.So, if you're feeling a little lacklustre about your reading selection, why don't you try getting yourself a case of Marchetta fever? It just might be what cures you.

  • Once upon a timeI never would have thought a book could have me sobbing my heart out at four in the morning.And then Melina Marchetta wrote On the Jellicoe Road.I never would have thought I d like traditional fantasy novels.And then Melina Marchetta wrote Finnikin of the Rock.I never would have thought characters could get any better than Finnikin and Isaboe.And then Melina Marchetta wrote Froi of the Exiles.I think that if Ms Marchetta were to ever write a bad novel, the earth would simply slip [...]

  • I ve been a fan of every other Melina Marchetta book I ve read, which is all of them, so it sort of pains me to say that Froi of the Exiles was frustrating and unsatisfying for me I m still going to give it three stars because even when Marchetta is subjectively to me not on her game, she still has a way with words that blows nearly every other YA author out of the water Originally, I tried to keep my review entirely spoiler free but it just wasn t happening There will be a few spoilers but they [...]

  • My thoughts after reread If there s something this reread taught me, it s that I can t think of a better author than Melina Marchetta to deal with a character as Froi with such honesty, depth, and respect I won t shy away from the truth Froi, as a 14 years old rootless and lawless slave, attempted to rape the MC in Finnikin of the Rock, and I will never, ever, condone such awful and criminal behavior Yet there s where Melina Marchetta s brilliance shows itself giving Froi this book, she never, e [...]

  • You know how authors say that once in a story the two main characters get together there is no point in continuing because nobody is interested in reading about them getting married, having babies and discussing about who takes the kids to school Well, with Marchetta it doesn t work that way Because, in fact, in this book she does tell us about the Happily Ever After She also switches the focus of attention to some OTHER interesting characters and that s where it gets tricky, for the new charact [...]

  • Does this book really need another glowing review A book with 225 reviews on GoodReads alone and 4.62 average rating What can it possibly change Maybe not much, but yes, I believe that it does Melina Marchetta is extraordinary Duh I won t sing her praise in this review Almost everyone who ever gave one of her books a chance knows how brilliant she is Writing about it here seems unnecessary and a little bit silly since it s the one thing we all agree on, regardless of our favorite among her books [...]

  • DNF pg 165Alright, hear me out I liked the first book but it put me in a slump and I liked this book too, but I ve been reading this for like over a week now and I really don t feel it It isn t the books fault It s actually a really good book and I really would love to continue reading it, but whenever I pick it up I put it back down I simple don t want to force myself to read this because that never ends well I don t want to have a bad and boring time reading this.I m leaving my rating blank be [...]

  • Authors like Melina Marchetta leave me in an uncomfortable position As a reader, I m overjoyed to read books such as hers since they challenge my mind, make me smile and gape alike, and steal away pieces of my heart As a writer, however, Marchetta s books.idate me Never before have I read work from an author that just keeps getting better and better with each successive novel and those who have read Marchetta s debut novel, Looking for Alibrandi, know that she has never been even a mediocre writ [...]

  • Melina Marchetta was gifted with the ability to ruin my life and make me regret everything I really appreciate it, Ms Marchetta, thank you for that, please never stop.If we forget who we lost, Lady Abian would tell Froi and her children, then we forget who we once were, and if we forget who we once were, we lose sight of who we are now Why this Book Slays Every Other Book in the World froi gets 90% page time a princess who is neither beautiful nor sane yet she is still wonderfully fierce and you [...]

  • I always have a hard time reviewing these books the ones that aren t read so much as frantically consumed in a whirlwind of gluttonous book hedonism Afterward I feel like, What just happened to me Yesterday is such a blur a happy, sad, angry, intense blur So, I ll just apologize now, because this review probably won t be very coherent.This book begins like a lot of Melina Marchetta books In fact, I might say that all of her best books begin this way There s a mad jumble of names, events, and rel [...]

  • Once again I find myself at a loss for words and I do believe I m suffering from Marchetta Fever If you ve read any book by her, you may know the symptoms yourself First it s the euphoria that sets in right after you complete the book Then, you find yourself thinking about the book long after you finish You have the inability to form a single, coherent thought to review the book And in the final stages, your palms go sweaty with the need for the next book There is a reason why Marchetta is consi [...]

  • When I though it was not even possible for this trilogy to get better Melina Marchetta pens this sequel masterfully raw and flawless She expertly marries the existing world from Finnikin of the Rock to the mysteries that surrounds Froi s my favorite character origins and the people that he gets intertwined with.The introduction of the new characters were than well spaced and place Thier integrated with the existing crew was believable and I shit you guys not when I say that the twist and turns, [...]

  • Reviewing a Melina Marchetta book always takes me longer than reading one, even a 600 page whopper like Froi of the Exiles It s like this If someone were to point to this penand ask, What color is this , the answer is easy.Blue.But if the person pointed to a rainbow and asked, What color is this , the answer is no longer simple because a rainbow is every color Likewise, a Marchetta book can t be narrowed down to one thing or one emotion It s every emotion.In Froi of the Exiles, as in Finnikin of [...]

  • Scroll down if you d prefer the tl dr version If Finnikin of the Rock was a story about a divided and displaced nation s journey towards healing their collective psyche, Froi of the Exiles is about a people broken apart by hatred, the wound in their history left to fester, and seep suspicion and fear into the cracks between them A faceless, malevolent presence in Finnikin of the Rock, this is Charyn s unveiling as than simply the enemy of Lumatere It s an insight into a land burdened by sufferi [...]

  • I ve tried writing this review countless times, but it just doesn t turn out right Maybe I should just give up This story has a very peculiar atmosphere It is actually hard to describe almost dream like in some parts, but so very real in others simply an extraordinary combination Especially the scenes taking place in and around the Citavita induced the strangest feeling in me This feeling is almost impossible to grasp, and I m certainly not able to put in into words but I loved the experience It [...]

  • My review can also be found on my blog Collections.It s been about two days since I finished this book, and I haven t been able to stop thinking about it All I ve been doing is skimming through the entire book and rereading my favorite parts and coming up with theories on how Melina Marchetta is going to resolve everything When I started it, I stayed up really late the first day because I just could not put it down It s definitely the fastest I ve read through a Melina Marchetta novel I can t sa [...]

  • Final rating 6 5 starsI excepted a great book from Melina Marchetta And she delivered it This book is a lot darker than the previous one Instead of following the story of of two main characters from the previous book, this one follows the life of Froi, three years later after the events in Finnikin of the rock.Not only I enjoyed this book, I also love it way too much Not only has it been a long read, but it was worthwhile and strong book The type that gets you crazy and wanting for and also ma [...]

  • Oh Sagra This was so goooood I will never be able to express how much this book touched me I wanted to write this in bold capital letters with exclamation points scattered throughout the entire review, but instead of abusing those buttons, just note that I write this with a bounce in my heart and an excitement that I wish I could scream from the rooftops When I first heard that Melina Marchetta was going to write a companion to the much beloved Finnikin of the Rock I was thrilled But when I hear [...]

  • Froi of the Exiles is 593 pages and despite the length, I read it in just a few days Covert reading at work, at home behind my family s back and late through the night helped me finish this in just a few days Really, I had no choice, the book consumed me it compelled me to keep going and keep turning those pages or clicking next on my kindle My reading experience was akin to hanging off of a cliff and having no idea if rescue was coming or if the ground below me was close.What is it about Melina [...]

  • 4 STARS Where do you hail from Lumatere he asked suspiciously I was found in exile, Froi said, having no reason to lie to Ariston I belong to all of them I choose you, pikachu Marchetta And good lord is she doing a masterful job at killing me, this woman.I don t want to write anything lengthy or get into my pretentious space which I indulge in from time to time and for which I apologise profusely discussing the psychology of war, rape, abandonment, the lesser evil etcetera Because, let s all adm [...]

  • I have selected the authors I want to display as my favorite ones with care writing one of my favorite books does not automatically switch me into fan mode yet one of my very first thoughts when thoughts were or less possible again after ripping myself away from life in Charyn and Lumatere was I need to persuade maintanance to install a huge, visible gap between word magician Marchetta and the rest of the writers I unquestionably adore Some coherent brain activity and a fond trip down the Memo [...]
