Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating.
I have been dying to get my hands on this book all year!!! I first saw Kate Elliott’s Court of Fives in December. Not only did the cover and title intrigue me but the synopsis has me hooked! I’m a complete sucker for dystopians and fantasies and this book has a lot of promise. Hurry up August!!!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
Court of Fives by Kate Elliott
Series: Court of Fives, #1
Genres: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Romance
In this imaginative escape into an enthralling new world, World Fantasy Award finalist Kate Elliott begins a new trilogy with her debut young adult novel, weaving an epic story of a girl struggling to do what she loves in a society suffocated by rules of class and privilege.
Jessamy’s life is a balance between acting like an upper class Patron and dreaming of the freedom of the Commoners. But at night she can be whomever she wants when she sneaks out to train for The Fives, an intricate, multi-level athletic competition that offers a chance for glory to the kingdom’s best competitors. Then Jes meets Kalliarkos, and an unlikely friendship between a girl of mixed race and a Patron boy causes heads to turn. When a scheming lord tears Jes’s family apart, she’ll have to test Kal’s loyalty and risk the vengeance of a powerful clan to save her mother and sisters from certain death.
I’m definitely waiting on Court of Thieves! I’ve been trying to new, cool sounding YA fantasy series and this definitely belongs to that group 🙂 Great pick!
