Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 WAOUH ! JUST RIGHT! 30 janvier 2015
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
An unexpected and very good surprise!
This first book of a serie of three will take on a journey that you will never forget easily, and that you would love to purue somehow. I do not even know if Exy existsnot, but I am estrangged as much to cricket, baseball or soccer. That's of no importance. You will be very quickly engrossed in the life of those extremely finely carved charaters, you will just forget to switch off your lamp on the bedside table, and want to get back to your books asap coming back from work. You will decline invitations from your friends and maybe cancel some more already granted......
The plot, the style, the rythm, everything is so finely tuned, that you are part of the team's life, without realizing how deep.
This is fiction of course and probably a fantasy, crude and violent, but you can see the depth of evry move and you get into a very subtle analysis of a system, and that's neither boring nor patronizing,
I can't believe I was that easily trapped, happily as well. I read all sorts of books, maybe one every other day.... this one and the two others of this serie are exceptionnal. English is not my mothertongue, but let me tell you that this work is exceptionnal!
If you like fiction and novel, go for it, you can not regret it, there is everything.... it's horrific, sensible, thrilling, moving..... and always just right!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 5 for a creative and unexpectedly gripping read. 30 septembre 2015
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This was free, yet I have not read a better book in a long time. Not due to perfect writing, but thanks to an author who manages to explore coming of age, dysfunctional group dynamics and some pretty dark themes without undue sentimentalism. Pushing things to extremes is possible largely due to the setting at the heart of a fictional team/contact sport, a sort of cross between Manga (women/men =co-ed), raw urban indie sports and the well oiled machine of US foot ball.

It is not a parallel universe in the paranormal or sci fi sense, but still a sufficiently different context to allow the reader to attach themselves to a wide gallery of characters who in a familiar context probably would have come across as wholly dismissable. Their need to win and the underlying danger and momentum of the game drives the plot as much as the main character's ever present fight for survival, and it is as much gripping as engaging.

I highly recommend the book. I certainly became a fan despite probably not being the kind of person the author imagined as a core audience, (ie a middle aged woman definitively not into sports), and just hope that my enthusiasm does not scare of the younger readers I expect the book was intended for.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 4.5 stars - a fascinating story 12 août 2013
Par Nikyta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Having just finished this, I must say that I'm sort of speechless. I'm not exactly sure what to say about this book. However, it's been a long time since I've felt the desire to stick with a story in one go and even longer since I've finished a book this long (82k+) in only a day.

With that said, there are a lot of warnings that should come with this book. For one, there is no romance in this one. In fact, I'd be hard pressed to even call it a gay novel because the main character is more asexual than anything. There are 'suggestions' and 'impressions' that this could turn into a gay romance but that could also be taken as the MCs just getting violent. But to those readers thinking they're picking up a young adult, new adult, whatever you want to call it, romance, you'll be sadly disappointed.

That out of the way, I'm extremely glad I read this. It might not be romance or m/m but I adored the characters and the journey I took with them. They're intense to say the least, psychotic and likely to fly off the handle bars but there was something about them that made me want to continue reading and find out where things were going. While I wouldn't say there's a huge cast of characters, there are more than the typical couple and a few side characters. The main contenders here are three guys: Neil, Andrew and Kevin. Neil is an asexual (kinda) who just wants to play Exy (which is like a sport that mixes lacrosse and ice hockey). He's a frightened kid but knows how crucial it is to lie low for fear of his father discovering where he is. Kevin is difficult to explain. He's mean and criticizes everything about Neil but at the same time, he's this lost soul who's been dealt just as crappy a hand as Neil has. Andrew is... psychotic. It's the only way to describe him. I don't understand how he became this way but he's got nothing to lose and he acts on that. He's five foot nothing but he's not afraid of staring down giants. He's amazing but scary and willing to keep everyone who he deems 'family' safe and right now that is Kevin.

The story follows Neil along as he gets accustomed to living in such an open place and playing the sport he loves. Immediately he has issues with Andrew and his gang (who are Neil's teammates) that makes his life difficult but he loves Exy enough to put up with the hostility from everyone. It's about the trials that Neil has to go through, the panic and fear he always has about being found out and being hunted again and the consequences he has to deal with when he makes his decisions regarding whether to stay or to run.

The only thing I didn't like about this book (aside from the lack of m/m romance, of course!) was how confused I was at times. The beginning will be hard to get through for some people because you're left wondering what is going on. You don't get the full back story for Neil or Kevin or even Andrew that really makes sense until well into the book so you're left wondering and probably saying WTF multiple times.

I feel that I should warn readers that this isn't exactly about the mafia either. While there's an undertone of it and even the threat of a yakuza pride descending on Neil and Kevin, it's not actually shown or very prominent in the story. Given that, I didn't much mind this because I felt like the whole book was focusing on second chances and Neil finally living a life, finding a home and standing up to his past. To do that, he needs Andrew and Andrew is willing to help him because of Kevin. It sort of seems like a love triangle but, like I said, this isn't romance. It is more of a bonding between these characters over a common issue.

To be honest, it's hard to explain this whole book because so much happens and is revealed that would spoiler the whole story if told. So, I'm going to leave it here. I enjoyed the novel. It has its issues but I found the whole thing fascinating and couldn't put the book down once I started. I liked that it wasn't saturated in sex but focused on such broken, and in Andrew's case, frightening characters. These characters are misfits, pure and simple and their attitudes and aggressions show that. It's a book of deceit, loyalty, dangerous situations and trust. It's not your traditional story but a gripping tale nonetheless and I'm really looking forward to seeing where the series goes from here and seriously how there's some m/m romance in the near future for Neil and Andrew!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Seriously, if you want originality, flawed awesome characters, suspense... you have to read this one. 1 janvier 2014

Initially, skeptical after lately reading writers who barely could sustain my attention. I was caught off guard on this one. Usually, an author starts out well and finishes poorly or somewhere in between. Nora Sakavic has the uncanny talent to not let up and keep you totally absorbed in her simple yet complex tale.

Now, this is the type of work that goes beyond just a yarn about love interests. It delves deeply into various characters, damaged lives, malignant forces and unanswered questions . There's a connection with her creations. For me , this is a sign of a great writer who enchants the reader. I believe this author is on the level of writers such as TJ Klune, Scott Sherman, C.S Pacat. Admittedly, the genre is different but the ability to thoroughly engage the reader is the key.

Look , this is just a good story. It does have a gay character and questions about our main protagonist's preferences. However, it's not the primary story line. Don't look for erotic interludes here. However, if you are really looking for an entertaining, absorbing, suspenseful work look no further. Really, I doubt you will regret reading this one. I'm on my way to the next book. BTW some things are great even though inexpensive.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love this intricate story - rare five star review 29 décembre 2013
Par Kevin Matthews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
As I write this review, I've just finished the first two books of the ALL FOR THE GAME trilogy - and they're both excellent. Main and sub-characters are extremely well developed, and continue to grow through the series.

This is a story about a varied group of young adults (college age) who had somewhat (to horrifically) broken childhoods. They're misfits who are brought together through a sport, while continuing to encounter setbacks. As the relationships between the characters evolve, we slowly learn more about their past and how it has brought them to where they are.

The first two books contain several gay characters, but no M/M romance and no erotica of any type.

The two initial books are full-sized novels; presumably the third will be as well:
The Foxhole Court - 4058 locations
The Raven King - 5035 locations

The final book in the trilogy, The King's Men, is expected to be released in January, 2014 (according to a blog post by the author on Nov 15, 2013). These are not standalone books - readers will want to read them all, in order.

I complain a lot about eBook prices; this may be the first time I've ever suggested a price.increase. I purchased book one for free, and book two for $0.99. This seems too low given the high quality of the writing and story. Perhaps maintain the free price for book one, but sell books 2 and 3 for $3.99 or $4.99. I would happily pay that amount in return for this author's fine work.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A lot of unclear promises-that caught my attention 27 décembre 2013

Read in November, 2013

This is one of the most unusual books I've ever read. A new sport? I didn't think I'd care. It's definitely more of a setup for the sequel than a stand alone book, but I found myself caring enough to buy the next one. A subtle menace permeated. And that's how the sexuality stayed, as well. Just a hint of possible homoerotic connection, lurking beneath the surface. I'm intrigued and that's an achievement! I didn't quite know what to expect, but the characterization hooked me enough to for me to buy the next one. Good job! It takes a lot for me to finish a book lately, because of I don't like something, I just don't read it. Kudos for Ms. Sakavic to intrigue me enough to keep me interested enough to purchase the next one. Good writing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 fantastic series 18 novembre 2014

The book was free and had some great reviews, so I decided to give The Foxhole Court a chance - I'm not often drawn to what seems like a sports-oriented plot, but once I started reading, I really didn't want to put this book down. Neil is a wonderful (and wonderfully flawed) character, and he's not the only one - the Foxes are comprised of kids given second chances, even their star player. And while the created for the story sport, Exy, plays some part in the plot, it's not the main focus of the book, it's how Neil has to either learn to take a chance and live for once, or keep running from his past (which is pretty brutal, fair warning).
This book (heck, this series) is not for the faint of heart. There's mention of various types of abuse and not too many feel-good moments. Yet for all of that, I *had* to read The Foxhole Court and its sequel, The Raven King, as quickly as possible, and am eagerly awaiting the third book in the series (hopefully out in January 2014). They're just that good. You find yourself caring for the characters, their (human) quirks and issues aside, and you see definite development as the story progresses.
If you're looking for something that's more than a light read, take a chance on this book.
