The Winner's Curse
Arin wasn't always a slave. When the Valorian war machine showed up ten years ago conquering, killing, and enslaving, he was just a child. Now he is a slave, but he doesn't intend to be one for long.
Kestrel and Arin should be enemies, but each seeks out the company of the other, and their feelings begin to grow. This isn't just a tale of star crossed lovers. These two are on opposite sides of a brutal war with each side taking ruthless action against the other and each betrayal cutting ever deeper. Kestrel can only deny her feelings for so long, but can she ever truly love and trust her enemy?
I loved Marie Rutkoski's new book! It's a great love story, but there are so many more moral questions at play. It is much more complex than I had imagined. Highly recommended!
