Luke Taylor Thank you very much for being my friend, Marie! I can't wait to read the Winner's books and dive into your world! All the best to you!
Luke :D


Bernadette Thank you so much for accepting my friend request! I recently finished reading The Celestial Globe and am looking forward to reading Petra's final adventure, which is currently sitting on my nightstand. The Kronos Chronicles are my new favorite middle grade series!

I have been looking forward to meeting you for some time now at the Tucson Festival of Books this March, and was quite sad to see that you cancelled your visit. Is there any chance you will entertain visiting Tucson in the future? I would greatly appreciate your reply! Thanks.


Mariyyah I loved your books so much.I liked Arin alot but he is a bit unpredictable,like he was arrogant or conceited at first well may be his character will grow in 3rd book I am waiting patiently:D I hope it will have a fabulous end.Lots of love for you:)


Jennifer Horne Dear Ms. Marie Rutkoski,
Thank you for accepting my friend request.
Thank you for the two amazing books in this series. I enjoy reading great books. I Love Love Love this series you have created. March cannot come soon enough for me. Any chance of some sneak peeks along the way? Are you going to give any ARC's out? If so, how could someone go about trying to get one?
Your Friend,
Jen

Marcus Thanks for accepting my friend request!!! The Winner's Trilogy is AMAZING. I'm so attached to these characters. I don't think Romeo and Juliet had it as tough as Arin and Kestrel.


message 10: by Bella

Bella Thank you so much for accepting my friend request! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED The Winner's Curse! cant wait for the next one!:)


message 9: by Ivana

Ivana I loved the first three chapters from Winner's Crime!! I'm so pumped for March, and right after Dr. seuss' birthday, nonetheless.
Also, it's really cool that you interact with your fans, because a lot of writers don't take the time to do that, so... yeah thanks.

Thanks so much! I know, Arin is complicated. There are plenty of reasons to both adore him and think he's kind of awful. I think the same is true for Kestrel. But I love them both.

Chryssa Dear Marie,

Thank you for accepting my friend request...
I just finished The Winner's Curse and I am telling you I went through all stages of hating and finally ADORING ARIN (how sweet was he in the Bridge of Snow?) ...and Kestrel was a beloved heroine from the beginning!

I just voted for this as the Best Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction of 2014, here on Goodreads!

GOOD LUCK, from all of us Greek fans (yes, we are plenty!) of this amazing story!

Chryssa!


P.S: Those book covers...are truly awesome!


Rachel  (APCB Reviews) thanks for accepting my friend request!!!! I am so so so excited to read "The Winner's Curse" when it comes out :)
