Releases and Recommendations: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

It’s Tuesday! The wonderful day that books are released to the world. This week, I’m anticipating the release of The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski, which will be released on Tuesday, March 4, 2014.

16069030In the tradition of Kristin Cashore and Cassandra Clare comes this brilliant, unputdownable, star-crossed romance about the curse of winning.

Seventeen-year-old Kestrel is an aristocratic citizen of Valoria, a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers. Here, a girl like Kestrel has two choices: join the military or get married. Despite her skills in military strategy, Kestrel’s real passion is music. Which is why she feels compelled to buy Arin, a slave with a talent for singing, at auction. It’s not long before she finds herself falling in love with Arin, and he seems to feel the same for her. But Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for Arin is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

Set in a new world, The Winner’s Curse is a story of wicked rumors, dirty secrets, and games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.

I’m really intrigued by this “curse” and the fact that the heroine falls in love with her own slave. This one should be good. I’m excited to pick this one up.
