"...Marchetta’s imagined world swallowed me whole and I wanted to stay in it."
The Age

From the bestselling author of Looking for Alibrandi.

Three years after the curse on Lumatere was lifted, Froi has found his home... or so he believes. Fiercely loyal to the Queen and Finnikin, Froi has been trained roughly and lovingly by the Guard sworn to protect the royal family, and has learned to control his quick temper with a warrior’s discipline. But when he is sent on a secretive mission to the kingdom of Charyn, nothing could have prepared him for what he finds. Here he encounters a damaged people who are not what they seem, and must unravel both the dark bonds of kinship and the mysteries of a half-mad princess. In this barren and mysterious place, he will discover there is a song sleeping in his blood... and though Froi would rather not, the time has come to listen.

"Grant Cartwright’s flowing narration makes for easy entry into Melina Marchetta’s richly imagined fantasy world. Froi, a minor character in FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK, returns as hero in the second Lumatere Chronicle. A linguist by gift and assassin by training, Froi is sent to kill the royals of Charyn who threaten his adopted home. But the unsuspecting Froi is confronted by confusion about Quintana, Charyn’s last-born princess and prophesized redeemer, as well as by his own damaged nature and hurtful past. Cartwright doesn’t shy away from intensity in his portrayals. He captures Quintana’s mix of fury, madness, and vulnerability and gives context by showing the abuse surrounding her and the tenderness she provokes in Froi. Cartwright’s pacing increases the drama and provides a break in descriptive sections."
