Wednesday Wish List
The Winner’s Kiss is the third installment to the Winner’s Trilogy 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?

I listened to the first book in the series, The Winner’s Curse, while driving around Yellowstone last August. I was so disappointed it was part of a trilogy because I had no access to the next book in the series. Jump ahead several months to January 2016 and a little trip to the local library where lo and behold there is the second book to the series, The Winner’s Crime! I grabbed it, held it to my chest and continued looking for the book I actually came to the library to look for. I now have to patiently wait until March 29, for the last book in the series, The Winner’s Kiss. It is in my wish list now and I am very tempted to pre-order a copy.
