Review: The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski

The Winner's Crime (The Winner's Trilogy, #2)The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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. REVIEW 5 STARS ***** I chose The Winner's Crime as one of the titles I would like to receive as my birthday gift from a friend. I can say that I devoured this book and simply loved every moment of it. There is something about Marie Rutkoski's writing style that just grabs and holds my attention. I have been blindsided by the ending and plot twist taking place in this trilogy. I'm in shock right now, why? I will most definitely pre-order book # 3. This book was a major distraction from my homework, but that's okay. I need to find out what happens in the next book. The ending is seriously going to make this a brutal wait... Love this series. The author makes this world effortless for readers to envision. (Thank you Sunni, for my cliff-hanger gift, so loved it)
