Description

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.

    reading this feels like coming home. in retrospect things make so much more sense. but the most painful part is neil's character development. he's grown so much.

    i would give it a thousand stars if i could. so much better the second time around when i actually understand what's going on. i cried a lil bit at the end, when andrew does the thing.

    this book was...... different. didn't think i would like it because i'm not a very big sports fan, but i ended up loving it somehow. it wasn't that i fell madly in love with it, it was just that it kept me reading. i feel like it's very much a character driven story? but i never once felt bored.
    i probably enjoyed it so much because of the characters, characters who were so realistic?? and actual human types? all of them had layers to their personalities and they had complex stories and they were all three-dimensional and i absolutely loved it. most of the time i had no idea what i was supposed to feel towards any given character this is genius.
    and the sport itself is very creative though i can't really imagine it, but i did like how it was described and how it was the central part of the story without being shoved in my face.
    and then there's neil. i have very mixed feelings about him. mainly because i don't really know a whole lot about him?? we are given information about his past and childhood and current situation and his thoughts were all there but i still wouldn't be able to tell what kind of person he is? what gestures he makes what are his qualities or flaws or just anything?? i guess that's kind of good because he has to kind of act a certain way to live the life he is living but still. i hope we get to know him better as the series goes on.
    and the absolute best thing about it is that THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO ROMACE ISN'T THAT JUST FANTASTIC though i do ship neil and kevin heh
    all in all i thoroughly enjoyed this book and i can't wait to start the next one.

    Read this for diversity December - research informed me that the MC is demisexual, which was a new term for me. I probably wouldn't have picked this book up otherwise, because sports fiction is just not my thing, and I rarely read books with so much testosterone flying around, ha.I still don't fully get what the sport Exy is; I keep imagining ice hockey, but then I remember it doesn't actually take place on ice. There are many characters in this book, and I found the beginning to be kind of all over the place. The story is more character-driven than plot, and I wish there was a better balance between the two because the plot is very thrilling, but the overly detailed descriptions of Exy made some parts tedious to read. Also, nothing in this book is actually realistic. But then again, this is YA and when is it ever realistic, lol.

    This book is very interesting to say the least. I'm not exactly sure where I stand with any of the characters yet, and I don't know if I actually like any of them. But they intrigue me, and make my fingers itch to start the next book in the series. The novel comes off very much as a fanservice type book, and that's not a bad thing: I feel like Sakavic wrote the exact type of book she would have loved to read, and that just happens to be the same type of book that us fans out here love to read. One of my main critiques about this book is that for a sports book, it's really lacking sport. I have no idea how Exy is played other than that it is very aggressive, is a lacrosse hybrid sport, and that the player can only walk 10 steps with the ball. More game play would be nice, but I get that the book is more about the bizarre and broken characters than the game itself; but if the game is a part of the players and their connections to each other, then I believe game play is important.

    Anyhow, this is a very strange and interesting book, and I look forward to reading more and (hopefully) letting these characters enter my heart.

    The Foxhole Court is such an important series to me. From relating to these broken foxes to seeing them grow, learn to love and heal has made a huge impact on me and the tough time I've had in my childhood. I'm an adult now, but books like this still remind me why I fight and why I wake up every day. Because this book reminds me that shit happens, but we'll get through it, and that I'm here because I chose to live. These characters are amazing, full of character development and Nora's writing is inexplicably beautiful. It has it's flaws, but this series holds a huge spot in my heart and God forgive me when I say that this series is my therapy. I read it when I'm sad, angry, tired or anxious. Its my happiness. I honestly have read this ( listened to it, too ) hundreds of times this past year and this narrator is simply amazing too. It's full of tough, hard, eery content that isn't suitable for everyone but... Give it a shot. It's amazing. And it is so, so important.

    Couldn´t stop listening to the book, kept me thinking about the plot, I even listened to this during my online classes. Love it

    It might not be the most easiest read - coercion and such, characters resisting to be likable ( especially you, Kevin), but gosh, if not intriguing! It feels as it is its own world - a bit too intense to be real, but with interactions of broken kids at the heart and vigilant, wary Neil, it's such a feast. Couldn't help but cheer for him all the way.

    Reading this trilogy feels like coming back to my 17-year-old persona - who discovered the world of Exy and struck a deep bond with Neil. Loving the audiobook, loving Nora as always.

    God I love this series with all my heart! I haven't listened to the audiobook, but I have read the series twice and have fallen for it entirely. Lovely writing with an epic plot I never got bored of and enough romance to pull at my heartstrings! I love this series and cannot recommend it enough

    I’m unsure why this has so many glowing reviews. The writing is pretty bad. Truly terrible and cliche writing, from the first page to the last.

    How is that a book I was about to DNF suddenly got interesting so fast??? Guess “boys protecting boys” (TM) is my jam. Neil is a very improbable character but not as annoying as I expected. If Neil is a 3 in the improbability score then Andrew must be a 10.... man, I hated him for what he did to Neil and at the end of the book I loved their “friendship”??? At least Neil is not fully trusting and I can get behind that... I don’t know what it says about me that their dynamics entertain me. 2.75

    The Foxhole Court is the opening volume of what ends up being a fast-paced, intriguing trilogy. However, the first book does not completely emulate these traits. The novel is busy, with multiple plot factors, but they tend to be difficult to follow and slow moving. It can be argued that's the point of any first novel in a series, world building, and this book does need adequate time to do so with a new sport and an entire underground organized crime unit. Still, this first novel of the trilogy seems to drone on more than capture the reader's interest, at least for the first chunk of the text.I can't say there was a specific point where that switched over for me, from feeling like I was trudging along to the end result of buying the last two books of the trilogy the moment I finished the first, but I'm very pleased to say that it did. I don't want to err into spoiler territory, but I'd say when Andrew's character really began interacting with Neil and trying to figure out his past was when the story began picking up and felt as if it was moving forward. There were points in the plot where I felt a character's actions or an event came out of nowhere, but it didn't detract too much from the flow. By the end of the first novel Neil felt far more sympathetic and interesting than he'd started out seeming, and the other major characters like Kevin and Andrew had begun feeling more fleshed out. If you're looking for slow build, LGBT+ literature and enjoy sports narratives- even if they are made up sports- then this series is excellent choice. One major warning, though. This series is extremely dark with a great deal of potentially triggering plot lines. The first book in particular includes a scene of a character being drugged and kissed against their will, even amidst a great deal of vocal refusal. The following books are even more graphic. Exercise caution, but if you feel you can handle graphic plot lines then I fully recommend this series.

    The Foxhole Court series is a wonderful series that we have all been blessed with! I loved it so much. It contains: understanding, friendship, love, courage and diversity. I swear that this series are just the best to lose yourself in and experience the amazing universe of the exy sport and the junkies that exist in it. If you read this before you know what I am talking about;)
