Waiting on Wednesday #20




Waiting on Wednesday is about sharing a book every week you cannot wait to be published. This week, I'm waiting on

The Winner's Crime
(The Winner's Trilogy #2)
by Marie Rutkoski



Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Fantasy, Historical

Pages: 416

Expected Publication: March 3, 2015

Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's


SPOILERS AHEAD!

Description from Goodreads:

Lady Kestrel's engagement to Valoria's crown prince calls for great celebration: balls and performances, fireworks and revelry. But to Kestrel it means a cage of her own making. Embedded in the imperial court as a spy, she lives and breathes deceit and cannot confide in the one person she really longs to trust ...

While Arin fights to keep his country's freedom from the hands of his enemy, he suspects that Kestrel knows more than she shows. As Kestrel comes closer to uncovering a shocking secret, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth.

Lies will come undone, and Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them in this second book in the breathtaking Winner'strilogy.
 


I loooooved the Winner's Curse - Kestrel, Arin, the setting, the plot, the final twist!! It has been a long year waiting on the Winner's Crime, but I'm 99% sure that the wait hasn't been for nothing. Just a bit under two weeks left for the publication!

    1. If the first book peaks your interest even in the slightest, I really recommend you to pick it up. It's a great romance/fantasy YA novel. :)

  4. I read the first one in this series when it first came out! I liked it, but I didn't love it. I think it had to something to do with the ending. When I realized that it was part of a series, I was pretty excited! I think I like the first book more now knowing that it is a series!
    Check out my WOW!

    1. It probably has to do with the fact that the publication date is pretty close. :) And of course because it most likely will be a total kickass book! ;) Thanks for stopping by!
