The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski
War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it with untrustworthy new allies and the empire as his enemy. Though he has convinced himself that he no longer loves Kestrel, Arin hasn’t forgotten her, or how she became exactly the kind of person he has always despised. She cared more for the empire than she did for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she did for him.
At least, that’s what he thinks.
In the frozen north, Kestrel is a prisoner in a brutal work camp. As she searches desperately for a way to escape, she wishes Arin could know what she sacrificed for him. She wishes she could make the empire pay for what they’ve done to her.
But no one gets what they want just by wishing.
As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover that the world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and they are caught in between. With so much to lose, can anybody really win?
You wouldn't even be asking why I'm waiting on this book if you've read it's prequels. *shakes head* And if you haven't read the first two books of this trilogy, I beg you to please, please, please read them because they are THE BEST. At least, they are, if you like books where the author ruthlessly rips your heart out of your chest and stomps on it.
Marie Rutkoski made me fall in love with her writing with just one book- the second one only made me love her more, so I literally CAN NOT WAIT for this book. I really want to see what happens to Arin and Kestrel and how this beautiful, heartbreaking story ends, and I'd be lying if I said I don't have high hopes on this one!
GIVE THIS BOOK TO ME ALREADY, PLEASE!
Well, what about you?
