)-- "Be Careful What You Joust For," by Ryan Hauge and Ivy Smoak, hit the shelves Tuesday, April 17th. It will be available for a special launch eBook price of $0.99 on Amazon, Nook, and iBooks. The highly anticipated novel is the first installment of the Pentavia series. Early reviewers compare it to "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R.R. Martin, "The Kingkiller Chronicles" by Patrick Rothfuss, and "Harry Potter" by J.K. Rowling. "An epic tale of fantasy where young men fight for their freedom, young women learn the capriciousness of the human heart, and nothing is ever as it seems." - Meghan Lloyd from Lady With a Quill Book Blog
The fiercest knights in the realm are coming together to compete in the Joust for Arwin's Lance, a tournament that will divide even the closest alliances. The winner alone will have the power to start or prevent a war from unfolding across the peaceful lands of Pentavia.
House Hornbolt, a prominent family that desires peace above all else, is hosting the tournament. The Hornbolt’s have always been strict followers of tradition. The first born son wears the armor of a knight. The second takes the priestly Oath of Arwin. And the daughters get married off to the most eligible suitors.
The eldest son is the favorite to win the tournament. But the rest of the Hornbolts aren't as eager to follow the paths laid out for them. What if the second born wants to be a knight too? And what if the eldest daughter just gave her heart to a common thief?
Customs are meant to be broken. But that’s not all that threatens to shatter House Hornbolt, not when a secret deeper than the late king's grave is unearthed right before the joust.
The fate of Pentavia hangs in the balance as war becomes imminent. And the scales are about to tip.
One wrong move and everything could fall to pieces.
