Recensione

Every line in The Winner's Curse is beautifully written. The story is masterfully plotted. The characters' dilemmas fascinated me and tore at my heart. This book gave me a rare and special reading experience: I never knew what was going to happen next. I loved it. I want more. (Praise for 'The Winner's Curse', Kristin Cashore, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of the Graceling Realm books)

Like any epic page-turner worth its salt, Rutkoski's richly imagined world is full of dynamic repartee, gruesome battle scenes, and shifting alliances. A high-stakes cliffhanger will leave readers eagerly awaiting the next book (Praise for 'The Winner's Curse', Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Rich characterisation, exquisite world building and rock-solid storytelling make this a fantasy of unusual intelligence and depth ... Breathtaking, tragic and true (Praise for 'The Winner's Curse', Kirkus, starred review)

A forbidden romance. The romance is heartstoppingly lovely and admittedly steamy ... but the raising of stakes and the reluctance of the couple to give up their respective causes, even as they confess their love for each other, lends their relationship a complexity not often seen in the genre ... A last-minute compromise between the lovers secures a sequel, and fans of Kristin Cashore and Robin Lefevers will be pleased to have a new romance to follow (Praise for 'The Winner's Curse', BCCB, starred review)

Faultlessly written, home to a rich cast of mesmerising characters, and possesses just the right amount of intrigue, romance and emotion to make the story one that leaves an impression. My mind is still reeling from those final few pages (Praise for 'The Winner's Curse', Realm of Fiction)

Rich with detail, tension, and true feeling - and that goes for both the plot, and the characters. Everything about it is just incredible (Praise for 'The Winner's Curse', There Were Books Involved)

Full of high society balls, lies and deceit, stolen moments in secret places, as well as being absolutely beautifully written, The Winner's Curse is a brilliant first book in a new trilogy that everyone should read! (Praise for 'The Winner's Curse', Swept Away by Books)

The hype is right - The Winner's Curse is a beautiful, heartbreaking must-read (Praise for 'The Winner's Curse', Icey Books)

Questa è un'altra della tantissime serie che dovrebbero arrivare in Italia, merita tantissimo!
Per me il fiore all'occhiello della trilogia è la protagonista, Kestrel. La adoro. Intelligente e per una volta, non una combattente nata.
Questo secondo libro è quasi tutto intrighi politici, strategie e cuori spezzati, ma resistete! Il terzo libro è assolutamente perfetto.

4.0 su 5 stelle An Excellent Sequel 2 ottobre 2016
Di Rebecca Forrester - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Rutkoski has delivered again! The Winner’s Crime is the second book in her Winner’s Trilogy, and what a sequel it is. Intrigue, betrayal, and heartbreak abound. I read the synopsis for the third book and spoiled the ending of this one for myself, but it was still a pretty wild journey to the destination. I was kept guessing through the whole book!

The development of the plot was interesting, but as with many YA fantasies, I feel that it lacked the subtle development more commonly found in adult fantasy. Kestrel’s spying skills felt woefully inadequate considering that she was up against an emperor with years of experience in the art of manipulation. I knew she was going to get caught from the first awkward encounters that seemed so blatantly obvious to my reader’s eyes. Kestrel may have thought she was skilled at subterfuge, but her confidence was misplaced. Had she truly been clever she would have become closer to the prince or knifed the emperor at dinner. Not that mealtime regicide requires cleverness, but it would have taken Kestrel’s most devious enemy off the Bite & Sting playing field. I felt the prince was largely ignored as a potential ally or enemy- he felt extraneous and I was disappointed by this. Arin was playing his own hand of cards and simultaneously pining over Kestrel and loathing her, which displayed his ignorance of her character.

Though I just spent a whole paragraph fussing about what the characters should have done, I must confess that I still think they’re great. This is one of my new favorite YA fantasy series and it’s just incredibly engaging. I’ve had trouble putting these down and neglect my household responsibilities while reading. One of the best parts is that the most devastating betrayals in this installment come from where you least expect it. Rutkoski really threw me off with the last one and I always appreciate a good surprise!

I can’t recommend this series enough for fans of YA fantasy! If you haven’t read it yet, check it out because it’s so good. If you have, leave a comment below and let me know what you thought! Did I mention that The Melting Library has a Bite & Sting candle that sounds like it smells divine? It’s on my ever growing list of bookish candles that I want!

5.0 su 5 stelle Seriously one of the best books I've ever read! 22 marzo 2017
Di Tanya - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I thought book 1 was awesome, but this one was even better, and can't even fathom how spectacular the 3rd will be. Marie Rutkoski has a knack for bringing you to the brink of happiness before throwing you to the ground in misery. Lol At least, that's how it feels with the ebb & flow of Kestral & Arin's relationship. Just when you think she might finally reveal everything, she has to keep it hidden. Just when he starts to believe that she loves him, his confidence is shattered again. I swear my heart swelled at the thought of their joy, of a kiss, only to end with anguish & tears that it wasn't yet to be. My heart can hardly take anymore! I have to read book 3!

3.0 su 5 stelle It's an okay read... 15 marzo 2017
Di Nickyrian - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The agony and excruciating pains I feel for Arin and Kestrel are unbearable. My heart is wrenched to the last beat of it. The conflict between Arin and Kestrel in book one continues and remains unresolved in this second installment. I have expected that the author will resolve the old conflict first, and then create a new one to make it more excitable for the readers. Maybe it's just me; I have set my expectation too high based on the great rating of this series. Nevertheless, I will continue on on the third book to find out the ending. I am hoping it will finally give me an extraordinary experience.

3.0 su 5 stelle Like cold spaghetti... 12 giugno 2016
Di FlyingFish - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I absolutely loved the first book to this series, the second, not so much. I'd say a good 60 % of this book is the two main characters thinking about their secret feelings for the other and daydreaming. It was tiresome. Was there some action? Yea sure, the last chapter. I feel like the WHOLE purpose of this book was to prolong the conflict between the main characters. In the first novel Kestrel and Arin seemed compatible, they matched each other in intelligence, strategic thinking and wit. In this novel, Arin became super unpredictable and impulsive, which ultimately affected his judgements. Overall, the writing in this book was excellent, the ending was wonderfully shocking, and the world building is creative. Hoping the next book is better.

5.0 su 5 stelle Amazing second installment 23 giugno 2015
Di titania86 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Recensione Vine di un prodotto gratuito ( Cos'è? )
Kestrel made a deal to free Herran with the emperor in exchange for her betrothal to the emperor's son. She is surrounded by the best of Valorian society and all the riches she could want, but she's completely unhappy. She's torn between wanting to further help Arin and the Herrani people and loyalty to her own people and her father. Of course she has to keep her true motives from everyone, including Arin, to be able to eventually rule the empire and do some good. The emperor is controlling and demanding, keeping watch over Kestrel's every move. Arin, on the other hand, is also miserable, but for completely different reasons. Herran may be technically free, but Valoria is leeching the country for all its worth so the people are as impoverished and beaten down as ever. Arin is trying to his best for his country, but he essentially has no power. Can Kestrel and Arin make a difference in their respective situations? Will they stay estranged forever?

The Winner's Curse was one of my favorite reads of last year and its sequel follows that same trend. It doesn't fall into the second book funk that so many other trilogies do. Although there isn't a huge revolution like in the first book, much of the plot is political intrigue and misunderstandings. Kestrel has to navigate the shark invested waters of the Valorian capital. She can never be herself or let her true feelings known, so she's constantly assessing how best to lie in each situation. With both the war in the East and the situation in Herran, Kestrel has to suggest ways to minimize harm without seeming too sympathetic towards the enemy cause. The emperor has taken her under his wing in the worst way possible. His goal is to make her as callous and cruel as possible to follow in his footsteps since he's labeled his sympathetic son as a lost cause. Kestrel can be his true heir if she follows his guidance. Understandably horrified, she struggles to seem like a true protege so she can do some real good as ruler when she and his son take over. However, this training includes witnessing torture and enduring countless mind games that wear on her psychologically. I felt for her each step of the way. I didn't always agree with her decisions, but I understood where she was coming from, even through all of the deceptions and lies. Juggling so many expectations and deceptions wears on a person.

The story also follows Arin and his struggle to save his country. The freedom of Herran is a sham since the emperor demands more money and resources than they can afford to give. Arin is still expected to be part of Valorian society even though it's painfully obvious how separate he is from them. He's mocked, looked down upon, and treated like dirt. After Kestrel convinces him she is a heartless opportunist and the emperor attempts to murder him, Arin recklessly decides to go to the East to secure an alliance against Valoria. His story is so heartbreaking because there's truly no hope for his people without outside help. He's powerless in the face of the empire and his people starve and become sick with every passing day. His exploits in Dacran expand the world and allow the reader an unbiased look at this different culture as well as bring back an interesting character from the first book. Arin spends most of the novel angry or frustrated and I also felt for him. I was impressed by his ideas even if the implementation may have been a little rough. It's just part of who he is. He isn't built for intrigue or deception and it's one of his endearing qualities.

The Winner's Crime puts Arin and Kestrel through hell and keeps them mostly apart. Their scenes together were excruciating because they could never be truly honest with one another. It's cliche to have a couple misunderstand and misinterpret things badly, but there's a real reason for it here. The ending is a huge cliffhanger, so wait for the next one if you don't want to sped months wondering what will happen like me. The book moves slower than the last and a lot of the conflict is less obvious, but it's no less exciting or well written. Marie Rutkoski's skilled writing creates vivid images, taps into emotions, and kept me reading for hours on end. I'm counting the days until the conclusion.
