THE WINNER’S CURSE by Marie Rutkoski (WoW #163)

Posted by on August 28, 2013

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!


Winning what you want may cost you everything you love As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions. One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin. But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined. Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.

THE WINNER’S CURSE will be released March 4th, 2014 from Macmillan.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. Wow! I have recently seen this cover popping up all over the place but hadn’t really taken the chance to read the synopsis. I think the plot sounds even more enticing than the cover – and that’s really saying something! I love that it’s sort of got some historical-ness tossed in but still sounds incredibly unique. Definitely looking forward to this! Great choice and thanks for featuring!

  2. Gorgeous cover. I don’t have a WOW post of my own, but I am looking forward to reading THE WIFE, THE MAID, and THE MISTRESS.

    THANKS for sharing.

    GORGEOUS BLOG!! I don’t believe I have ever visited.

    Going to follow if I can.

  3. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you
    get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you reduce it, any
    plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
