I could rave about this novel for days. I'm a self-professed Contemporary Girl, but I love this fantasy series SO MUCH. I recently read a review that commented on how (and I'm paraphrasing) this follow-up book is packed with tension even though the plot itself is rather slow. And yes -- exactly. I mean, things definitely happen in this second installment of The Winner's Trilogy, but Marie Rutkoski takes plenty of time to build a rich, compelling world, plus tons of suspense. Arin and Kestrel are some of my favorite YA characters. They're incredibly smart and courageous. They make difficult decisions with selflessness and poise. They make sacrifices for love. And, they have aMaZiNg chemistry -- even when they're hating on each other. The Winner's Crime includes some new and compelling characters, and it's full of twists and surprises. My only complaint? Its brutal cliffhanger ending. I need The Winner's Kiss, like, yesterday!

Ugh. It hurt BAD. I'd pretty much trade a limb for the final book right now.
