Waiting on Wednesday (42) Poisoned Blade

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're excited about.

This week, I'm excited about....

Poisoned Blade (Court of Fives, #2)Title: Poisoned Blade
Author: Kate Elliott
Pages: 448
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Release Date: August 16, 2016

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.

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Court of Fives last year.  Here's to hoping this one is at ALA.  I'm slowly compiling a list of my priorities for the event so I know where to go.  And this meme is super helpful for that!

What are you waiting on?
