Waiting on Wednesdays: The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

Publish Date: March 1, 2016
Publisher: Farrar Straus & Giroux

Somehow I missed the blurb on this one. I've really enjoyed the first two books in this series and am looking forward to the next installment. I think it's the last?

War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it, with the East as his ally and the empire as his enemy. He’s finally managed to dismiss the memory of Kestrel, even if he can’t quite forget her. Kestrel turned into someone he could no longer recognize: someone who cared more for the empire than for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she cared for him. At least, that’s what he thinks.

But far north lies a work camp where Kestrel is a prisoner. Can she manage to escape before she loses herself? As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover unexpected roles in battle, terrible secrets, and a fragile hope. The world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and Kestrel and Arin are caught between. In a game like this, can anybody really win?


  1. Is it March yet!?! Oh the feels. This is one I'm indeed impatiently waiting for! I kind of wish I didn't read The Winner's Crime early.

    I recently added this to my TBR pile on Goodreads! This will be my first read from this author :)
