Synopsis:Now you may wonder why this one isn't like my other Waiting On Wednesdays. Well, The Winner's Crime doesn't technically have a cover yet. It's not up on Goodreads yet and I just couldn't wait to share this book The Winner's Curse is seriously one of my favourite books of 2014. I'm so excited for the next book in the series it's unreal. I wish that the Fierce Reads tour would come to Toronto, especially since they have Marie Rutkoski and Nikki Kelly are on it. Anyways, though they haven't officially released the cover yet, Marissa Meyer posted a picture of her ARC and I'm so jealous. Man do I want to read it like NOW.
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.
