Cover Reveal: Quintana of Charyn by Melina Marchetta

Hello readers! I am so excited to be able to share this cover with you!  As most of you know I’m a HUGE fan of Melina Marchetta, she is one of my all-time favorite authors on the planet.  I love EVERY SINGLE ONE of her novels, so getting  to take part in the North American cover reveal for Quintana of Chayrn the final book in The Lumatere Chronicles is a thrill!  I think I like this cover better than the Australian one, what about you?  I’ve shown it down below. What do you think?

"The climactic conclusion of Printz Award winner Melina Marchetta’s epic fantasy trilogy!

Separated from the girl he loves and has sworn to protect, Froi and his companions travel through Charyn searching for Quintana and building an army that will secure her unborn child’s right to rule. While in the valley between two kingdoms, Quintana of Charyn and Isaboe of Lumatere come face-to-face in a showdown that will result in heartbreak for one and power for the other. The complex tangle of bloodlines, politics, and love introduced in Finnikin of the Rock and Froi of the Exiles coalesce into an engrossing climax in this final volume."
 And here is the Aussie cover:

Quintana of Charyn (Lumatere Chronicles, #3)

With Froi of the Exiles I actually liked the Aussie cover better than the US one, but I like the model and the spear on the US cover for Quintana better.   I think it suits the story a little better than the cover above.  Covers aside, I’m most excited to read what’s within the pages and that should be very soon because my copy is currently on it’s way to me! Yay!




  1. Yes! This is my favorite of the three. I liked the Aussie covers better too, for both Finn and Froi, but this one is different. Lisa always preorders Aussie editions because they're out earlier, but I need my series to match so I wait. :) I'm OC like that.

  2. I LOVE ALL OF THEM. But that's just me though. The books could be coverless and I'm pretty sure I will love it like it's my child. Lol.

    Thanks for participating, ladies!

  3. Rachel? Why haven't I read this series yet? WHY?! I've only read one book by her, Saving Francesca, and that's just not enough. I thoroughly enjoyed that book and NEED to make my way through her backlist, she's amazing. Really looking forward to starting this series!

  4. I am with Jenny, why haven't I read this series when I hear everyone raving about it?I better get it done before this one releases! Love the U.S. Cover it is way more attractive. I am going to my calendar right now and putting these books on for 2013!

  5. I LOVED the first book and still need to read the second, but I do LOVE that cover! I agree, it's better than the Aussie one!

  6. The US cover looks so weird, like they tried to replace her nose with a spearhead! I don't really like either cover that much, nor the rest of the series
