Poisoned Blade – Book #2
Buried Heart by Kate Elliott is the finale to the Court of Fives Trilogy. I can’t begin to tell you how amazing this series was and that you should go pick it up right away! I was blown away with the world Elliott built and expanded on over the course of this journey.
For the third book, the story picks up with the political turmoil between the Saroese and the Efean people. Jessamy our main protagonist is on the run with her family to escape the grasp of Lord Gargaron. Safety is a major priority as things begin to fall to pieces for the royal family and Jessamy leading the rebellion!
Elliott weaves a masterful tale filled with drama, political strife, war, and intricate plot-lines. War is heavy in this one. I felt like there was a battle to be won or conquered in almost every chapter.
Jessamy still goes down as one of my favorite heroines! She is so head strong, confidant and smart. The way she carries herself throughout the whole story was amazing to read. Even when she is knocked down to the dirtiest mines of Efea, she still manages to keep her spirits up. She breathes hope into her people and gives them the strength to fight back.
The ending was so satisfying. Things will never be perfect and the bigger story is far from over. Though the trilogy is over, the characters will live on and still fight for their rights and privileges. Buried Heart was everything I could have asked for!
I highly recommend this one for all the fantasy lovers out there. Let me know what you guys thought of Buried Heart by Kate Elliott! I would love to hear your opinions as well!
Until next time,
As a child in rural Oregon, Kate Elliott made up stories because she longed to escape to a world of lurid adventure fiction. She now writes fantasy, steampunk, and science fiction, often with a romantic edge. It should therefore come as no surprise that she met her future husband in a sword fight.
When he gave up police work to study archaeology, they and their three children fell into an entirely new set of adventures in dusty Mexican ruins and mouthwatering European pastry shops. Eventually her spouse’s work forced them to move to Hawaii, where she took up outrigger canoe paddling.
