Finnikin of the Rock

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta (Viking, 2008); audiobook read by Tom Wren (Bolinda, 2010) YA fantasy that builds into its characterisation and gradually shifts focus, subverting expectations of its titular protagonist. Marchetta knows how to build a story, and weaves a much-needed female perspective through the plot, pointing the way forward for both genre and world.
