Finnikin of the Rock

FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK (Candlewick, $18.99) and his mentor Sir Topher are among the last survivors of the massacred kingdom of Lumatere.  As Finnikin and Sir Topher wander in search of a home for their people, they encounter the mysterious young mystic Evanjalin. Her revelation: that the true heir to the throne of Lumatere still lives. Evanjalin leads Finnikin and Sir Topher to find the lost prince in the hopes of reclaiming their rightful home.  Printz award-winning author Melina Marchetta has created a refreshing and nuanced new take on the traditional quest story.  –Sylvan Bongi
