Check out Melina Marchella's blog for a sneak peek at Froi of the Exiles because that's all we're getting in the US for awhile. I can only hope that an ARC will find it's way into my hands or practice my patience until it is released in March.
I loved Finnikan of the Rock. If you have not read it, go find a copy at your local library and read it. Yes, it's a fantasy novel and many of my friend whined when I asked them to read another fantasy novel. Know what though? Most of them came back to tell me how much they loved it and about the themes of culture and language and refugees that flow through this fantasy world.
