The Winner's Crime
The Winner's Crime, the dazzling follow-up to Marie Rutkoski's The Winner's Curse, reveals the high price of dangerous lies and untrustworthy alliances.
Following your heart can be a crime
A royal wedding is what most girls dream about. It means one celebration after another: balls, fireworks, and revelry until dawn. 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: that she agreed to marry the crown prince in exchange for Arin's freedom. But can Kestrel trust Arin? Can she even trust herself? For Kestrel is becoming very good at deception. She's working as a spy in the court. If caught, she'll be exposed as a traitor to her country. Yet she can't help searching for a way to change her ruthless world . . . and she is close to uncovering a shocking secret.
The truth will come out, and when it does, Kestrel and Arin will learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
I'm in love with the first book and I can't wait for this!! Must read!!
The book was great, but I wanted to face palm after every other chapter. Love the character development. Definitely setting up good things for the third book (hopefully.)
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book after reading the first one. And while this book was well written and clever, it was also agonizing to read. It felt a little too dismal and depressing with little to look forward to. I hope the third book makes up for it!
