Hello everyone! How’re you feeling? Excellent? I hope you’re excellent. I’m sure you’re all familiar with this little series called The Winner’s Trilogy? (If not, educate yourself post haste.)
Anyway, as you nurse your book hangovers from the horribly cliff-shaped end* of The Winner’s Crime, we are here today to kick off the First Lines blog tour by revealing the LAST LINE OF THE WINNER’S KISS (totally joking, it’s the first line but I wanted to mess with you).
He told himself a story.
Not at first.
While you speculate on what that means, please check out the (gorgeous) cover of THE WINNER’S KISS.
The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski
War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it, with the East as his ally and the empire as his enemy. He’s finally managed to dismiss the memory of Kestrel, even if he can’t quite forget her. Kestrel turned into someone he could no longer recognize: someone who cared more for the empire than for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she cared for him. At least, that’s what he thinks.
But far north lies a work camp where Kestrel is a prisoner. Can she manage to escape before she loses herself? As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover unexpected roles in battle, terrible secrets, and a fragile hope. The world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and Kestrel and Arin are caught between. In a game like this, can anybody really win?
Make sure you stop by the other stops on the tour for more pieces of the puzzle.
