Review - The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski

The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1)

There are some books on my TBR shelf I know I'll love when I pick them up. I was trying to wait until the sequel was closer. (It won't come out until March.) I could not resist this gorgeous book though! I've made myself very happy and also miserable now that I've read this book. I'm dying for the sequel, but loved this so much. Check out my video review of The Winner's Curse for my thoughts on this amazing book!!

As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions. One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction.

Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin. But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.
