Welcome to the Pre-Squee, a weekly feature here at The Book Swarm and the Bewitched Bookworms. Some books, though they might not be coming out for a few months, need an early squee — we just can’t hold in our excitement about them! Sure, we’ll do full reviews closer to the release date but this feature gives us a chance to share a little bit of our love, whether it be for the story, cover, characters, or whatever. We’re quite flexible in our book love.
Monday, author Kate Elliott posted this on her Twitter account:
Y’all. Court of Fives by Kate Elliott is one of my Most Wanted of 2015. Why?
First off, Kate Elliott rocks. She writes mainly adult fantasy (her Spiritwalker trilogy is fantastic!) but this one is young adult, scheduled to publish in June 2015 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
Second, while there’s not a full blurb, the teaser reads, “Little Women meet the Count of Monte Cristo in a fantasy world loosely inspired by Greco-Roman Egypt.” Oh, HELLZ, yeah.
Third, I’m dying to know the symbolism on the cover.
*grabby hands* Now, please?
