THE WINNER’S TRILOGY by Marie Rutkowski, a must read YA fantasy series
Dec 20th, 2015 by Liza Wiemer

The Winner’s Curse, The Winner’s Crime, The Winner’s Kiss

by Marie Rutkoski


1. The main characters, Kestrel and Arin, come alive.

Forbidden love you can’t help but cheer for! They’re strong, they go through so many trials and tribulations that you’re often holding your breath, nearly going crazy to find out what is going to happen next.

2. Extraordinary world building.

Marie makes this fictional world come alive.

3. The writing is exceptional, beautiful, lyrical.

4. Edge-of-your-seat action.

5.  Fantasy at it’s absolute BEST!



The Winner’s Curse

The writing is incredible. The story will have you turning the pages faster and faster and faster to find out what happens. You’ll be craving the next book, and after you read it (The Winner’s Crime) you’ll be screaming for the next book.

Bottom line: Don’t miss this series. Fantasy at its best. What a world Marie created. Amazing, unforgettable characters. Kestrel and Arin are strong-willed, have fantastic chemistry, know their strengths and weaknesses (often each other), and turn the world upside down.

This series is a gift for readers to cherish. I most definitely am cherishing it! Standing ovation for Marie Rutkoski!



The Winner’s Crime

From start to finish, it’s edge-of-your-seat action! Breathtaking, heart-stopping AMAZING! The writing, the story! Incredible. *Flail*Hug*Cry* If you need a support group after you finish reading THE WINNER’S CRIME, I are here for you!


The Winner’s Kiss

Without any doubt, I know that I’m going to absolutely love this novel. I trust Marie Rutkowski wrote the story that has been in her heart since this trilogy was a germ of an idea. Writing an outstanding story takes tremendous work, dedication, and passion for the craft. Marie has it in spades. Her storytelling skills are masterful, taking readers on the best kind of emotional roller coaster. It’s her characters, world building, cadence (lyrical) writing that captures the reader from page one. For those reasons and many more, The Winner’s Trilogy is one of the best YA fantasy series of all time. I can’t wait until THE WINNER’S KISS is in my hands. Marie Rutkowski and this series is worthy of ALL THE PRAISE! A best book for 2014, 2105, and I have no doubt for 2016! Cheering you on, Marie!


Blog Tour & Giveaway : What’s Your WINNER’S CURSE? Novel by Marie Rutkoski

I’m thrilled to be a part of Fierce Reads’ WHAT’S YOUR WINNER’S CURSE? Blog Tour.

The “Winner’s Curse” is an economics term that means you’ve gotten what you wanted . . . but at too high a price. In honor of Marie Rutkoski’s Winner’s Trilogy, bloggers talk about their own personal “Winner’s Curse!”

Here’s mine:

Without a doubt, I’d pay “too high price” to talk to and spend a day my Grandma Lena and my Grandpa Jack – not through a medium – but through some mystical veil. Obviously, this doesn’t exist. Except I have an imagination that wishes it were true. There isn’t a day that doesn’t go by when I’m not thinking about my grandparents. When they were alive, I spoke with them nearly every day and saw them at least once a week. They were a staple in my life. I miss them. And even though I believe that our loved ones watch over us, it would be AMAZING to spend quality time with them. My grandparents were filled with tremendous wisdom, plus I felt so loved and cherished by them. They took a great deal of pride in me and the rest of their grandchildren.

I wanted to be a part of this blog tour because I LOVE these books and they’re definitely on my “Best Books of the Year” List:
