Waiting on Wednesday (8)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

Froi of the Exiles (Book #2 The Lumatere Chronicles)
by Melina Marchetta
March 13, 2012

Synopsis
   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 taken roughly and lovingly in hand 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 in its surreal royal court. Soon he must unravel both the dark bonds of kinship and the mysteries of a half-mad princess in this barren and mysterious place. It is in Charyn that he will discover there is a song sleeping in his blood . . . and though Froi would rather not, the time has come to listen. (Taken from Goodreads.)

There are so many good books coming out in the next few months (see my left sidebar if you don't believe me) but there are only a few that I know with absolute certainty that I will be purchasing. Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta is on that very short list. I adore Melina Marchetta's writing and I was blown away by her first work of fantasy, book one of the Lumatere Chronicles, Finnikin of the Rock (my review here.)  I was really intrigued by the character of Froi in Finnikin, and I can't wait to read a book from his point of view. I'm ready Melina, bring the magic...

That's what I am awaiting. What about you? What book(s) are you waiting on?
