Author: Marie Rutkowski

Series: The Winner’s Trilogy #2

Genre: Teen Fantasy

Release Date: March 3, 2015

The Overview: The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement…if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret. As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.

I have to say I really enjoyed The Winner’s Curse even though the conflicts within the story drug out just a little bit too long for my taste. Even so, I like where the story is going and will definitely be excited to read this one in March. There was enough world building in the first one to pique my interest, but I’m looking forward to seeing the author expand on it even more in this much-anticipated sequel. So far, the story has been entertaining, but not quite worth all of the hype I’ve seen in the blogosphere (in my humble opinion). I’m hoping The Winner’s Crime will make me a believer. :-)
