Waiting on Wednesday (#1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine.

THE WINNER'S CRIME  (The Winner's Trilogy Book #2) by Marie Rutkoski

(Link to Marissa Meyer's glorious twitter pic of the cover since it hasn't been truly revealed yet and I feel bad about borrowing it.)

Summary: 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.


The first book in this series blew me away. I NEED to find out what happens next. I need to sink into Marie Rutkoski's beautiful prose. And this book will probably be my WOW until March 2014 when it comes out.
