The Winner's Curse

The Winner's Trilogy

(1)

Kestrel lives the lavish lifestyle of a Valorian General's only daughter, and such riches come at a cost for Valoria's captives - and for her. As the Herrani face death or slavery, Kestrel's destiny is shaped by her father. He gives her two choices: join his army or get married. Desperate to realise her own future and knowing that it will invite scandal, she pays a small fortune for a handsome Herrani blacksmith at a slave auction. Arin not only plays Kestrel's power games, he understands what she needs and soon she is torn between loyalty to her people and her feelings for him. But Arin is not all he seems and Kestrel will learn that the price she paid for him is much higher than she ever could have imagined. The first novel in a stunning new trilogy, The Winner's Curse is a story of romance, rumours and rebellion, where dirty secrets and careless alliances can be deadly - and everything is at stake.

Buchhändler-Empfehlungen

„Intense suspense in a roman empire setting“

Cassandra Trillhose, Thalia-Buchhandlung Berlin

It was so worth it to get the hardcover of this book. The Cover art is way nicer than on the paperback or ebook and the pages are done in the rough paper method, which makes them stick out at the side in different lengths, giving the book an undone look.
The story is very fast paced and I devoured this in just one sitting. The main character is luckily not affected by the Mary-Sue Syndrom many Young Adult books seem to praise.
Kestrel is witty and one of the best written female heroines ever in my opinion.
This book was shortlisted for a Goodreads award and it's an unjust shame it didn't win.
