Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday #42:The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers can rant and rave about any upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. For my addition, I will be spotlighting an upcoming book AND sometimes I will throw in a video game release that I am dying to get my hands on!

Overview: 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”.

A few weeks ago I got to read the first five chapters as a preview. And let me tell you….this books is freaking amazeballs! I was immediately HOOKED and could not believe that was just the sample. Definitely can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! Look at that cover… *swoon* Read that blurb… *swoon some more* If you can, find the sample and read the first five chapters! OMG I might just explode before this one comes out in March…*sighs* 
 

Edit: I found the sample here http://www.thewinnerstrilogy.com/
