The Winner's Crime (The Winner's Trilogy, #2)
The Winner's Crime
Marie Rutkoski
(The Winner's Trilogy #2)
Published: March 3rd, 2015
Genres: YA, Dystopian, Fantasy
Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

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.

Check out my review of book #1, THE WINNER'S CURSE HERE!

Oh my goodness, I am literary DYING for this  book!! After finishing book one, and having it end in that terrible, but AMAZING cliffhanger, I think I've been in shock and in crazy anticipation for THE WINNER'S CRIME. And it's almost here, can you believe it??? I am SOOOO EXCITED, I CAN NOT WAIT any longer to continue this epic journey and see how it all plays out!!!

  4. Obviously, this is THE best pick, but it's going to hurt and it'll probably make me cry again, mean book. :( BUT SERIOUSLY WHY DID IT HAVE TO HAPPEN? It's funny though, that it made me have that reaction when there wasn't much romance going on but it's just so damn good. The wait though. :(
