Today’s teaser is from The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski. I just started reading it yesterday, I’m 11% in and some serious things are happening already! 😀
“Of course.” She tried to ignore the weightlessness of her scabbard.
“Good. And what’s past is past, isn’t it?”
About the book:
The Winner’s Crime (The Winner’s Trilogy #2) by Marie Rutkoski
Book two of the dazzling Winner’s Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.
The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement… if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.
As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
