COURT OF FIVES, by Kate Elliott

court

The story: Jessamy lives in a world between: not a Commoner, not a Patron–kept apart from both by society’s disapproval. She lives to compete, but even then, she can only take part in the complex Court of Fives games if she hides her identity: her father would kill her if he knew. But her skill brings her to the notice of both handsome Lord Kalliarkos and his evil-doing uncle Lord Gargaron, and sets in motion of chain of events that separates her parents and nearly destroys her family. The only way she can save them now is by winning the next games…but if she does, Kal may never look at her the same way again.

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: a cool new fantasy series, but not for wimpy readers!  If you like fascinating world building and a truly kick-butt heroine, check this one out.
