Waiting on Wednesday #20: Court of Fives

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Court of Fives by Kate Elliott

Publication Date: August 18,2015
Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers

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.

Why Am I Excited For This Book?
This book sounds awesome! High Fantasy, A Competition. And a girl dreaming about freedom. Sneaking out at night to train. Plus family. I am really looking forward to reading this debut novel and finding out more. I can't wait to find out what happens to Jessamy and her family. And the unlikely friends she meets. Sounds amazing!
