  • Quintana of Charyn is a masterful novel. Hauntingly beautiful, powerfully written and the perfect end to this brilliant fantasy series.But this is nothing different. Marchetta's novels only come in shades of amazing. By far her strongest and most compelling ability as a writer, is the way in which she crafts her characters and their struggles in the context of the world they live in.If you have read Finnikin of the Rock and Froi of the Exiles than fear not. Quintana of Charyn will not disappoint [...]

  • I am a little unsure about this rating because it's Melina Marchetta - how can her books be anything less than five stars? She's the queen of young adult who can jump across genres and still create something spectacular. But, though I really enjoyed Quintana of Charyn, I liked it significantly less than the other books in this series (particularly Froi of the Exiles) and I think I can quite easily pinpoint the main problem: the plot. Or lack thereof. Where I think Froi of the Exiles could easily [...]

  • Reread 09/26 : As if I could stop at the end of Froi of the Exiles. Please."Our bodies aren't strangers," he said, his voice ragged. "Our spirits aren't strangers". He held her face in his hands. "Tell me what part of me is stranger to you and I'll destroy that part of me."Original review : Truth to be told, I was wary at first, out of fear to be disappointed by this last journey through Lumatere and Charyn. I couldn't have been more wrong - indeed Quintana of Charynwas wonderful, as it contains [...]

  • Perfect ending to the story, Melina Marchetta, I fall in love with your writing more each time. Never stop writing, please. Review maybe to come later. Read it in one sitting. Pre-readingOctober 2012?! Too, too long

  • Volunteer for someone to hold me bc I literally cannot exist right now.I don’t know where to start bc I can’t encompass the thought that this is the endIT’S OVERMY LIFE IS NOW OVER.Do you know who tells me my worth, Phaedra of Alonso?’The Princess pointed a hard finger to her own chest. ‘Me. I determine my own worth. If I had to rely on others I’d have lain down and died waiting.” This book broke me so many times. SOMANY TIMES.- FROI MY SMOL FARMER SON - This kid doesn’t stop fig [...]

Crazy as ever…You may think that it would be difficult to get behindA heroine who snarls at people, keeping them at arm’s length.But, for me at least, Quintana will always be my ultimate heroine,As she’s a girl who survives because of her resilience and strength.And I want her to be my life coach, my best friend,Because [...]

  • Edit: GUYS. Guys. I went to to preorder this book, and it said that it will not be released until MARCH 2013. WHAT. __________________________________________________________How I feel about having to wait for this book

  • Book, did you just try to kill me ?With that epilogue, I swear, you did.With the serrated edges of sorrow of bidding farewell to Lumatere and Charyn. With the indelible silence of completion.That is fraught with joy so consummating that it aches.I guess I got carried away, but that happened because I loved this book. I don't know if I was expecting any different but I still feel that it has surprised me.I must tell you that this review is going to be long, because I have so much to say and no on [...]

  • Buddy read/reread Starting Dec 29 with my friends over on Buddies Books and Baubles formerly known as the Lumatere Group ReadLoved it just as much the 2nd time through. What a great, emotional, beautiful story.Overall Series Rating = 4.75Quintana of Charyn = 4.5I will not be able to do justice how much I loved this series, it is impossible. Not all of it is happy and the feelings I felt throughout the series ranged the whole spectrum of emotions. I laughed, cried, got angry, hoped beyond belief [...]

  • I think I love you, Melina Marchetta, for making a series/trilogy after the wonderfulness that was Finnikin of the Rock.

  • This Book Destroyed Me.Melina Marchetta you have left me needing therapy after reading this Trilogy of yours. You blew breath into each character that you pen, made me love them, hate them, cry with them and experience every freaking miserable fictional feeling. I'm (at present ) trying and failing to think coherently *sob sob*I can rave enough about this read, this book was a fantastic end to it all. The #Feels were real and the action plentiful. I'm going to sincerely miss all these characters [...]

  • Rating: 4.75 Stars Well, call me a coward, but I have been avoiding writing this review like the plague. Actually, worse, considering I'd run towards a plague before I ran towards writing a review for this. I always have two feelings when I finish a Melina Marchetta novel. One, of being incredible happy, content, and simply awe-struck for the novel is always amazing beyong belief; and second, of feeling ever-so-slightly nervous because, let's be honest, how could I ever possibly even think or i [...]

  • What can I say about this book but faith rewarded? How do I begin to talk about a series that turned me onto a new genre?Marchetta took me on a journey through an unfamiliar genre and story landscape, through curses and the Citavita. Looking back on Finnikin, I couldn't even finish my review because I was so unused to fantasy. I was exhausted by the little I did manage to write. By the time I read Froi, I was better prepared and any exhaustion I felt was due to the emotional ride from the book.W [...]

  • SPOILERS FOR FROI OF THE EXILES4.5 STARS”Do you love me?” he asked instead. “because if you don’t, I’d wait until you did. I’d wait weeks and months and years.”I fell in love with that line without knowing who said them or the context of those words. This was such a breathtaking reminder on why I read books.Because in the culture fostered here in , underneath the insurmountable TBR pile, the endless galleys that you burden yourself to review before their release day… it’s so ea [...]

  • Melina Marchetta's Lumatere Chronicles is like the crowning jewel of the young adult fantasy genre, so of course I had huge expectations coming into Quintana of Charyn. Twice now, Marchetta has delivered indescribable stories of a cursed land, a nation of refugees, a series of powerful characters who exemplified hope, vengeance, and forgiveness rising from great tragedy, all through two unforgettable books. And with so much on the line, a lot can go wrong, but I’m happy to report every word is [...]

  • Final rating: 6/5 starsThis wasfantastic. At least for me. I always loved Lumatere, especially after Froi of the Exiles, which was NOT what i expected of young adult fantasy to be. Great job Melina, great job!This book was so wonderful, I just didn't want to put it down. Every sentence was beautiful and her writing style is amazing. I am very, very sad to see that this is how it ends. There are those times where I love to read long series (more than 3 books) and when I don't. This series falls i [...]

  • A brilliant (and VERY underrated) trilogy just came to an end I will miss these characters so much! Everybody who's looking for a YA high fantasy series: Read this. Just do it. You won't be disappointed!

  • How do you even begin to do justice on a review for such an amazing end to a truly amazing series? I have yet to read a better series because 1) the stories had me intrigued; 2) the characters moved me and 3) the books made me think the whole way through and kept me on my toes.First of all, I think it's a bit of a misnomer that the book was entitled "Quintana of Charyn" because I thought this book was going to be about her. I actually didn't see very much from her perspective, and I felt she sho [...]

  • The whole time I was reading this book, I was thinking "This. This is what those Syrian refugees are experiencing. The despair, the frustration, the terror, the unexpected acts of kindness, the persistent hope for a better future" For a book that is not, presumably, written as an allegory, it is eerie how representative this book (and Froi of the Exiles) are of the state of affairs today.I loved Finnikin of the Rock. It was a mostly straightforward epic fantasy-type book, written beautifully (as [...]

  • Reading a Marchetta, always:_______________leaning on the side of wonder.I'm genuinely moved by this series, I really am. I'm not good with words, I'm not good expressing myself and that never upsets me until moments like this when I really need words to work.I'm in love with the Lumatere Chronicles series. Even when it broke my heart at one point, I will probably read it again in the future because this was perfection, from beginning to end. Every character, every love story and every tragedy w [...]

  • I couldn't possibly do this series justice with a review. It's honestly unlike anything else I've readjust the style of writing that Melina Marchetta has's unique to her. Her characters are flawedme to the point that you never really like them, but you can certainly relate to them. Quintana is a great example. I don't think I really like her all that much. But I understand her, and she makes Froi happy. There's so much more to that but what a fantastic character. This is the biggest selling poin [...]

  • i could build a shrine in marchetta’s name and you wouldn’t even see one hundredth of how much i love her for writing this series📢📢 friendly reminder that gargarin and arjuro smiled because with froi they found the better future they were dreaming of twenty years ago 📢📢it's been more than a week since i finished this book but i can't stop thinking about it (or crying about it) so life's #funibelieveinloveg (in which five strangers make me sob because they’re a family)● listen [...]

  • If there is a book that I can read with my eyes filled with tears and my heart full of happiness, it is one of Marchetta's storiesFULL REVIEW:This story took my breath away!It's an ocean of emotions that I've been sinking in and it's not like I haven't expected it, because I really did. I knew it was coming and even thought I was prepared for the force of it, it still blew my mind away - I loved it from the first page to the very last one and I guess my love for it will still go on forever.Be w [...]

  • I'm just speechless at this point. I need to ruminate. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~If I could sum up this series with one word, and MM uses it copiously throughout the entire series is fierce. It's a fierce story, full of fierce characters and stories with even fiercer emotions. It has the ability to tear you to shreds, believe me. So, last night I finished reading this and I want to say that it just really hasn't hit me yet. The full impact that a story I've invested a good threes years of my life in. I [...]

  • Well, we've come a long way since the little feef that roamed the streets of Sprie in Sarnak. A long, long way. Final book in the trilogy, Quintana of Charyn does not disappoint; it's full of joy, horrors, tears and laughter as well. Truth be told, thanks to the grumpy Charynites, it's even more humorous than its predecessors.As usual, Froi stars in every way, at least for me. The parallel stories all pale in comparison to the strength of this character, whose development throughout the trilogy [...]

  • 4.5 starsThis book is such a strange mixture of laughter and tears. The strangest thing of all is that it completely worked.Froi + Quintana forever.Tesadora + Perri forever, but really just Tesadora forever.Isaboe + Finnikin forever.Trevanion + Beatriss forever.Lirah + Gargarin forever.Arjuro + De Lancey forever.Phaedra + Lucian forever.Lord Augie + Lady Abian forever.Yata forever.Jasmina forever.Tariq forever.Every single character forever.Lumatere + Charyn forever.Ellis + Marchetta forever.RTC [...]

  • Update 11/12/15 - Just realized I've read this series twice this year and I REGRET NOTHING.Update 3/10/15 - Five million stars forever.I know I said I was going to wait until I'd done a series re-read before I wrote this review, but, well, I lied. Because I just can't stop thinking about this book, and I really haven't been able to since I finished it at 2:30 this morning (It's gonna be a yawn-filled day). It was that good. It was incredible. And I know that I will revisit this review soon, when [...]

  • Me before reading a Marchetta book:Me after reading a Marchetta book:Melina Marchetta (authoress divine) is one of those rare authors whose writing is constantly improving, constantly pushing the limits of how much I think I can love a book. When I read FINNIKIN, I felt like I had found The Best Book Ever (aside from Jellicoe Road, of course). But then she wrote FROI and now QUINTANA and I just have no words. At least, none that I haven't said before.QUINTANA OF CHARYN is, undoubtedly, a conclus [...]

  • Check out this review and others like it at BadAssBookReviewsMelina Marchetta, where the heck do you get your ideas? I can't think of very many authors who are able to cross over into a different genre and successfully write a brilliant and captivating novel? *drums fingers on table* Margaret Atwood? Stephen King? J.K. Rowling? I guess it depends on how we are determining the distinction between genres. What is clear is that Marchetta’s earlier books are realistic young adult fiction and the L [...]
