THE FINAL BOOK IN THE HEART-STOPPING WINNERS TRILOGY: an irresistible story of forbidden romance and class warfare Every line in The Winner's Curse is beautifully written. The story is masterfully plotted. The characters' dilemmas fascinated me and tore at my heart I loved it. I want more Kristin Cashore, author of the Graceling Realm books War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it with untrustworthy new allies and the empire as his enemy. Though he has convinced himself that he no longer loves Kestrel, Arin hasnt forgotten her, or how she became exactly the kind of person he has always despised. She cared more for the empire than she did for the lives of innocent peopleand certainly more than she did for him. At least, thats what he thinks. In the frozen north, Kestrel is a prisoner in a brutal work camp. As she searches desperately for a way to escape, she wishes Arin could know what she sacrificed for him. She wishes she could make the empire pay for what theyve done to her. But no one gets what they want just by wishing. As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover that the world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and they are caught in between. With so much to lose, can anybody really win?

Every line of The Winner's Curse is beautifully written. This book gave me a rare and special reading experience. I loved it. I want more * Kristin Cashore, author of the Graceling Realm books * Like any epic page-turner worth its salt, Rutkoskis richly imagined world is full of dynamic repartee, gruesome battle scenes, and shifting alliances. A high-stakes cliffhanger will leave readers eagerly awaiting the next book * Publishers Weekly, starred review * Rich characterization, exquisite world building and rock-solid storytelling make this a fantasy of unusual intelligence and depth ... Breathtaking, tragic and true * Kirkus Reviws, starred review * The romance is heartstoppingly lovely ... fans of Kristin Cashore and Robin Lefevers will be pleased to have a new romance to follow * Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books * Faultlessly written. My mind is still reeling from those final few pages * Realm of Fiction * Rich with detail, tension, and true feeling and that goes for both the plot, and the characters. Everything about it is just incredible * There Were Books Involved * Full of high society balls, lies and deceit, stolen moments in secret places, as well as being absolutely beautifully written, The Winners Curse is a brilliant first book in a new trilogy that everyone should read! * Swept Away by Books * The hype is right The Winner's Curse is a beautiful, heartbreaking must-read * Icey Books *
