Waiting On Wednesday (28)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, in which we highlight an upcoming book release we're eagerly awaiting.

This week I'm waiting on Froi Of The Exiles by Melina Marchetta. Because the first book, Finnikin Of The Rock, was epic. And because Melina Marchetta is epic.

Three years after the curse on Lumatere was lifted, Froi has found his home... Or so he believes...

But when Queen Isaboe and her consort Finnikin send him on a secretive mission to the kingdom of Charyn, he encounters a damaged people who are not who they seem, a surreal royal court, and soon he 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. 

[Synopsis by Goodreads]

Froi Of The Exiles will hit Australian shelves on the 3rd of October. It should release in America at the same time, or just a few months later.

Feel free to leave a link to your own Waiting On Wednesday post in the comments, and I'll be sure to have a look.
