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.

Wooo! The ARCs are out and I’m really jealous of people, haha. I’m a little sad that the cover doesn’t match exactly like The Winner’s Curse (and the ARCs). But, serious that darn ending,As I mentioned in my review, it was a perfect set-up for book 2 and I need this book nowwwwwww, please.

  2. The ending was definitely a perfect set-up for the next book! Oh yes, so sad that they changed how the title is done one the cover—on this one AND the paperback of Winners Curse.

  3. I still haven’t read first book. I decided to wait because I hate when I can’t read all books at once. Great pick!

  4. I still haven’t read the first book. Lovely covers in the series though.

    Happy Hump Day!
