Waiting On Wednesday 08/28/2013 Edition

"Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at “Breaking the Spine”, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

This weeks choice is-----The Winner's Choice by Marie Rutoski

Reason: When I saw this appear on Cuddleberry's blog a few days ago, I was like 1. This is my next WOW pick! 2. I have to get my hands on a copy of this book like now! 3. I'll admit that I am jealous of those who are reading this or have already! 

Serious folks, just the cover alone caught my attention. How about you? 

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.

Expected Publication: March 4, 2014 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
