Quintana of Charyn Review

528 pages
Release date: April 23rd, 2013

Separated from the girl he loves and has sworn to protect, Froi and his companions travel through Charyn searching for Quintana and building an army that will secure her unborn child’s right to rule. While in the valley between two kingdoms, Quintana of Charyn and Isaboe of Lumatere come face-to-face in a showdown that will result in heartbreak for one and power for the other.

Review (ARC):
The Lumatere Chronicles has been an exciting series so far, and this novel is no exception to that precedent. Although from the title you would assume that this novel is mostly about Quintana, it actually focuses on the other characters we have come to know and love a bit more. However, this doesn't make this novel any less of an amazing read. Quintana has always been a bit of a mystery, and I'm glad we get a bit more of an insight into her personality. Froi has come a long way from the first novel and he continues to impress me as the man he has developed into. Finniken and Isaboe's life together isn't the easy happy ending you would assume, and we get to see them go through problems like a real couple. Isaboe is very complex, and we see that she still struggles with the things she had to go through to take her rightful place as Queen. There are so many characters who's storylines add to the rich plot of this novel and keep things interesting. This story is masterfully written and continues to keep you guessing until it comes to an end. I definitely recommend reading this if you like epic fantasy fiction but make sure to read Finnikin of the Rock and Froi of the Exiles first.
