The Winner’s Curse by Marie Ruthoski

The Winner's Curse (Winner's Trilogy, #1) - Marie Rutkoski

Short Review;
This was fantastic, it’s a bit slow to start but it really picks up. This was beautifully written.


Long Review;

The Winner’s Curse follows the general’s daughter Kestrel who is seventeen, she has to choose between joining the military or getting married.


What I really enjoyed about this book was even though it was semi focused romance novel there was no instalove, even as you read further and feel like there might be something between them they both keep a logical outlook on everything.


While all this is going on there is also a war which they both have stakes in whether it be in the form of family/ friends or loyalty to their leaders and country.


I really loved how each character was written, even the horrible/ mean characters were written beautifully and they are all believable.


I would highly recommend this to anyone that’s into fantasy/ historical
