Waiting on Wednesday with The Winner’s Kiss


The Winner’s Kiss

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that highlights pre-publication/upcoming releases that readers cannot wait to get their hands on. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week my most anticipated read is…The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

Here is a brief summary and a picture of the beautiful cover provided by Goodreads:

“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?”

GAAAAAHHHHH! You guys, my heart aches for the conclusion of Kestrel and Arin’s story. I need this novel like yesterday. If you haven’t read this series, please do yourself a favor and start it immediately. This trilogy contains duels, battles, secrets, a swoon-worthy love story, kisses, betrayal, friendships, daggers, and spies. The book release date is March 29, 2016.
