"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's WoW selection is...
Title: The Poisoned Blade
Author: Kate Elliott
Series: Court of Fives, book #2
Publisher: Little, Brown (BFYR)
Publication Date: August 16, 2016
Jessamy is moving up the ranks of the Fives—the complex athletic contest favored by the lowliest Commoners and the loftiest Patrons in her embattled kingdom. Pitted against far more formidable adversaries, success is Jes's only option, as her prize money is essential to keeping her hidden family alive. She leaps at the chance to tour the countryside and face more competitors, but then a fatal attack on Jes's traveling party puts her at the center of the war that Lord Kalliarkos—the prince she still loves—is fighting against their country's enemies. With a sinister overlord watching her every move and Kal's life on the line, Jes must now become more than a Fives champion...She must become a warrior.
I only just finished the audio for A Court of Fives, but I enjoyed it much more than I had expected to, based on the multitude of varying reviews for the book. It was very much the Little Women meets Game of Thrones story I was hoping for. And that ending left me wanting so much more, so I need August to hurry the hell up. =)
