Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta**

Finnikin of the Rock is about Finnikin. He lives during the Middle Ages, and his kingdom has been destroyed. He is one of the few people who has escaped the walls of the kingdon when a new (imposter) ruler comes to power and closes the gates. Finnikin is traveling to find Evanjalin, the person who says she knows where his long lost friend is. He only wants to find his friend because his friend is the heir of the kingdom. When Finnikin is sent to jail by Evanjalin, he finds his father. They work together to escape the horrible working camp. They learn that Evanjalin was lying to them--the lost heir is dead. But when she reveals her huge secret, the whole world tilts on its axis.

This book was one of the worse fantasy books that I have read. I think that it just had to much bloodshed and death. This book was very rude overall, so no one under the age of 10 or 11 should read this. I hope you like this book more than me.
