Finnikin of the Rock

Finnikin of the Rock - 4.5/5Originally posted at Gypsy ReviewsBeing a lover of high fantasy novels, I had to check this out when my book twin, Paola @ A Novel Idea recommended this book to me. Although I didn’t love it as much as she did, I still thoroughly enjoyed it very much. Marchetta crafts her characters and her world with an ease that makes me envious and I was captivated by her characters and the journey each of them took to get to the person they were at the end of the novel. The romance was executed well and managed to draw me in, craving for more as soon as one scene ended.Finnikin wasn’t quite a likable character in the beginning, he was arrogant, cocky and stubborn. He was at heads with Evanjalin at first when he first met her, adamant that she was going to trick him at any second and that she wouldn’t fulfil her promise to bring him to Balthazar. Evanjalin on the other hand is pretty kick-ass, she’s calculating and her methods definitely make the others doubt her and lose trust in her but she delivers. What Evanjalin does will surprise you and throw you off your feet, literally shit will get real when Evanjalin is there.Very slowly, the two of them start to grow fond of each other and you know where I’m getting to eh? The relationship creeps up on you and I love it when it does and you hardly even notice it and when you do, the relationship is already starting to form. Their moments were sweet and endearing and yet the relationship didn’t come easily. You will melt of adorableness towards the end because UGH THESE TWO
