Staff Reviews


Pay no attention to the awful cover, because this book kicks off one of the best fantasy trilogies of the last few years. Kestrel's people conquered and colonized Arin's country. But when Kestrel makes an impulsive decision binding Arin to her, the two must decide between their growing loyalties to each other and their loyalties to their countries, which are gearing up for war. A gripping political story of empire set in a richly drawn fantasy world.

Description


A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Winning what you want may cost you everything you love
They were never meant to be together. As a general's daughter, seventeen-year-old Kestrel enjoys an extravagant and privileged life. Arin has nothing but the clothes on his back. Then Kestrel makes an impulsive decision that binds Arin to her. Though they try to fight it, they can't help but fall in love. In order to be together, they must betray their people . . . but to be loyal to their country, they must betray each other. Set in a new world, The Winner's Curse is a story of rebellion, duels, ballroom dances, wicked rumors, dirty secrets, and games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.
