Description

"Jes will remind readers of fearless Katniss...Let the games continue!" (Booklist starred review for Court of Fives) 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.show more

This book will not fail you."--Gail Carriger, New York Times bestselling author of the Parasol Protectorate series and the Finishing School seriesshow more
