Review: The Foxhole Court

The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic

Synopsis:

Neil Josten is the newest addition to the Palmetto State University Exy team. He’s short, he’s fast, he’s got a ton of potential—and he’s the runaway son of the murderous crime lord known as The Butcher.

Signing a contract with the PSU Foxes is the last thing a guy like Neil should do. The team is high profile and he doesn’t need sports crews broadcasting pictures of his face around the nation. His lies will hold up only so long under this kind of scrutiny and the truth will get him killed.

But Neil’s not the only one with secrets on the team. One of Neil’s new teammates is a friend from his old life, and Neil can’t walk away from him a second time. Neil has survived the last eight years by running. Maybe he’s finally found someone and something worth fighting for.

I really wasn’t expecting to love this book so much. I was even scared to read it because it has some serious warnings. I love this so much but for some dumb ass reason it’s not available on book depository. So, if you want a physical copy, you’ll have to go to ebay or amazon.  Also, I made an album on pinterest if anyone would like to check that out: The Foxhole Court

Now, I’m not a huge fan of sports in literature (unless it’s manga because sports are a visual thing) and honestly, the plot didn’t seem that interesting to me but I was so wrong. 

The characters are complex, most of them traumatized and they they’re all misfits, they’re all deeply troubled (and they act like it) – but most of all, these characters are real.  This sport, this team is their second chance in life. These characters will screw with you and make you love them and you won’t be able to stop thinking about them. Do not even get me started on Neil Josten and Andrew Minyard! 

The writing is great, and I think the language is so fitting for these character’s dialogues and actions. One of my favorite quotes is: “Remember this feeling. This is the moment you stop being the rabbit.”

To sum up, everyone should give this book a chance because it’s amazing and real. Iwill surprise you. (And it’s a free 260-page pdf, just give it a chance). It’s definitely one of my favorites now!

  1. Great review! I was also a bit iffy when I started these books, since I’m not really in to sports or like…extreme violence. But it’s all about the great characters, like you said. None of them seem likeable at first but they just grab you somehow!
