Finnikin was extremely well-developed and he was not a perfect hero.

I think this is the point where Marchetta and I go our separate ways. I couldn’t highlight it enough. As it stands, I found her rather unlikable and the other characters naive. But it gets worse That could have been finnikij source of quite a bit of a story development – but no, it’s kinda there and then shrugged off.
