The final installment of Kate Elliott’s debut Young Adult trilogy, BURIED HEART, will be released on 25 JULY 2017 from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. You can pre-order your copy on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Indiebound.
“In this third book in the epic Court of Fives series, Jessamy is the crux of a revolution forged by the Commoner class hoping to overthrow their longtime Patron overlords. But enemies from foreign lands have attacked the kingdom, and Jes must find a way to unite the Commoners and Patrons to defend their home and all the people she loves. Will her status as a prominent champion athlete be enough to bring together those who have despised one another since long before her birth? Will she be able to keep her family out of the clutches of the evil Lord Gargaron? And will her relationship with Prince Kalliarkos remain strong when they find themselves on opposite sides of a war? Find all the answers in this beautifully written and exciting conclusion to World Fantasy Award finalist Kate Elliott’s debut New York Times bestselling young adult trilogy!”
Here’s what people are saying about the series so far:
Booklist, starred review:
“Jes makes a worthy heroine, as bold and daring as she is endearing. One of the best things about this series is that the characters–heroes and baddies alike–are vividly real, their motives and emotions often fierce but always recognizable.”
“With strong characters and vivid worldbuilding that refuses to oversimplify individuals, cultures, and the opposing forces they represent…Court of Fives blends emotional intelligence, passionate idealism, and realpolitik in a plot ending at the cliff’s edge of revolutionary change. At once nuanced and thrilling…”
“The main character is the classic ‘strong female warrior’ archetype…and will remind most people of Katniss Everdeen…. This book deals with issues of family loyalty, standing up for one’s beliefs, and self-discovery…. A solid addition to a high school collection.”
