Item Name & Description: An Advance Review Copy of my YA debut, COURT OF FIVES, whose publication date is August 18, 2015, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
LBYR says: “In this imaginative escape into an enthralling new world, World Fantasy Award finalist Kate Elliott’s first young adult novel weaves an epic story of a girl struggling to do what she loves in a society suffocated by rules of class and privilege.”
I say: This book was inspired by Little Women, Sasuke/American Ninja Warrior, the Count of Monte Cristo, and Greco-Roman Egypt, and is also my love letter to girls who play sports.
But don’t take my word for it:
“Kate Elliott’s magic and mastery is better than ever. Court of Fives enchanted me from start to finish, with characters and worlds that lingered long after I turned the final page.” —Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend series and the Young Elites series
(It’s also gotten great quotes from Ann Aguirre, Tamora Pierce, and Gail Carriger.)
