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.

This book ripped my heart out in that-this is an amazing second book-kind of way. (Here's hoping the final book stitches it back together again.)

Marie's writing is stunningly beautiful and this story she's created; the characters, the world-building, the plot, is nothing short of perfection. PERFECTION!

It was a challenge not to devour THE WINNERS CRIME in one sitting, but I was afraid I might miss something if I did. The plot twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat with my tattered heart in my throat. I savored as much of it as possible until I could no longer resist the urge to finish it. When I did, I was sitting on my bathroom floor at 12:30a.m. hoping my crying wouldn't wake my family up.

It's rare, for me, to love a "second book" even more than the first, but THE WINNER'S CRIME accomplished that. And the line for Arin still starts behind me, but it's okay because there are cupcakes. :D

If you haven't started this series yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!
