Melina Marchetta’s “Froi of The Exiles” Book Review

What I most like of “Froi of the Exiles” is how cleverly it is written: under the adventures' layer that keeps you glued to the page sits a kaleidoscope of stories that talk - with compassion - about refugees, war crimes, rape and brutality and the lasting effect that violence has on people. The genre is fantasy but the themes come straight from current affairs. Despite the horror of war and what war brings into people’s lives, the book is laced with the most magical of all potions: hope.
