Quintana of Charyn
Marchetta triumphantly concludes her mesmerizing Lumatere Chronicles that began with Finnikin of the Rock (2010). Froi travels through Charyn to find Quintana, his strange and savage love and the rightful ruler of Charyn. While hiding from her enemies in the valley between two kingdoms, Quintana comes face-to-face with Isaboe of Lumatere and the ultimate showdown can only end in heartbreak for one and power for the other. Only Froi can set things right. He raises an army to protect Quintana and secure her unborn child's right to rule and protect her against those who will do anything to gain power.
