Waiting on Wednesday: Court of Fives

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Click here to join in on the fun.

This week I'm waiting on Court of Fives by Kate Elliott.
In this imaginative escape into an enthralling new world, World Fantasy Award finalist Kate Elliott begins a new trilogy with her debut young adult novel, weaving an epic story of a girl struggling to do what she loves in a society suffocated by rules of class and privilege.
Jessamy's life is a balance between acting like an upper class Patron and dreaming of the freedom of the Commoners. But at night she can be whomever she wants when she sneaks out to train for The Fives, an intricate, multi-level athletic competition that offers a chance for glory to the kingdom's best competitors. Then Jes meets Kalliarkos, and an unlikely friendship between a girl of mixed race and a Patron boy causes heads to turn. When a scheming lord tears Jes's family apart, she'll have to test Kal's loyalty and risk the vengeance of a powerful clan to save her mother and sisters from certain death.


Why I'm Waiting
Not only does it have an amazing cover, but it sounds really great.  I love how much fantasy there is on the shelves now, since it's my favorite genre.  This sounds like it will fit nicely among my bookshelves.  It doesn't come out until the eighteenth, I think, so not much more of a wait.  What are you waiting on this week?
