I have been oscillating between 4 and 5 stars on this one and after a few days to think about it and then re-reading parts, I'm going back to 4 stars.
This is a very good book, I Liked it a lot. Notice the capital "L"? Now Finnikin of the Rock I LOVE dearly and felt the need to run out and buy and then press into the hands of all of my family and friends.
I am certainly recommending Froi and I read it straight through a weekend but my intense feelings are still with the first book (I think I am in the minority here after reading reviews.)
Marchetta is an amazing writer and I continue to marvel at the way she can make me laugh and cry so quickly. I must admit, I figured a few things out early but here is the beauty of Melina's writing...
My only complaint?
Having to wait for the third book.
