Waiting on Wednesday: The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

The Winner’s Crime
(The Winner’s Trilogy #2)
Publication Date: March 3, 2015
Hardcover, 416 pages, Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

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.

My Thoughts

I’m a little miffed about the font change, because it looked prettier with the font over the whole book, not just on the top, but I can’t wait to read this!

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?
