I love this book and its sequel. Can't wait for the third one to come out.

I enjoyed these two novels (The Foxhole Court and The Raven King). The story was engrossing, but very dark emotionally, which is to be expected when the plot concerns mafia, death threats and mental illness. After finishing, it took me a while to rise out of the miasma of the main character's life. So as I said, very dark, but riveting.

I admit to skimming some of the sports bits. That said: the sports bits that I read were very well done. I've just never been that interested in sports. But the author has meshed the sports very well with the plot and character emotions/thoughts, so I doubt many readers will skim like me. I'm a chronic skimmer or speed reader. Some things just put me into speed mode. Sports is one, but gotta say, I slowed down for this book. This is an excellent first novel in a series and well written over all.

Mafia matters are very intertwined with the sports in this series. It works. It was very easy to suspend disbelief except every once in a while I wondered if Japanese mafia members were really that f---ed up and totally without a sense of humour. There's always some twisted SOB or two in a story with mafia.

I'm looking forward to book three and how the main character continues rising out of his emotional shut down while learning to have faith in some of the human race again.

I enjoyed every second of this book! It was engaging, well written, and the characters were well thought out. Well before the end I found myself caring about all of the characters, wanting to know each of their stories, and seeing each of them as a worthwhile believable addition.

I only wish I could be reading the rest of the trilogy Right Now.

Review by: Wren S on Jan. 23, 2013 :
What an amazing book! I highly recommend it. It has such interesting character that were both puzzling and unique, with a plot that wound in such lively loops of intrigue that it can grab you in a second. Unfortunately I'm in college so I didn't have the luxury of enjoying it in one smooth read, but if I could have I would have. And despite my hectic schedule I made sure to greedily read it all in a day. It's hard to stop once you start, and at the end you're still hungry for more.

I can't wait for the release of the next two book. A huge thanks to the author and her cohorts for making this available for a free read. I'm officially sucked in now.

Best free book I have seen on this website yet! Not a single typo! Over 50,000 words! That's probably enough to warrant a free book five stars as it is, BUT:

The protagonist, Neil, is not a good guy. Maybe, under different circumstances he would be. He certainly doesn't think he is (I secretly kind of do, though). It's a little unnerving to read about this friendless boy who compares himself to his serial killing father and who was taught that loving someone will get him killed. You feel bad for him until he proves in his quiet, clever way that he doesn't need your sympathy. Neil is at war with who he thinks he should be, who he thinks he is, and who he wants to be. He will surprise you.

Don't worry; while you're still wrapping your head around who "Neil" is, you'll be introduced to an equally lively and interesting cast, all on the fast-paced backdrop of a fictional game called Exy. On some levels the story is simple: play a game! make friends! But it's edged with sinister foreboding just under the surface. Because your new best friends may or may not include a very dangerous psychopath. And that game? Edgar Allen's Ravens are coming, and they play the dirtiest game imaginable. You may not come out alive.

Did we forget the serial killing father? Because he certainly hasn't forgotten us.




P.S. Exy is better than Quidditch.

Just finished reading this book. Loved it. I started it & couldn't put it down until I finished it. It's really that good. Can't believe it was free. "Neil" (I'd love to know his real name) is a complex and likeable character for me. I really didn't know what would happen next regarding the story line. I had a soft spot for the psychopathic Andrew - I'm still trying to figure him out. I know Kevin has his own thing going on - but I'd like to see him really stand up strongly against Riko.

I liked the way the author wrote about the sport while the game was in action. I really got into it - loved the smack talk that was going on, as well as the description of the sport in play.

Can't wait for the next book,"The Raven King" to come out. I'm dying to find out if Andrew can back up what he says he can do for "Neil" and Kevin. Also waiting for "Neil's" dad to put in his appearance. And of course the game of the Foxes vs. the Ravens!
