I thought I might enjoy this going in, for Kristen Cashore blurbed this and I have loved every book of hers with a passion.

This book seriously satisfied my craving for a good fantasy, which is odd, because it really isn't that much of a fantasy. Sure it takes place in a different world with green storms, but after that, not much else is very fantasy-esque. There's no magic and sure the people have gods, but it's a belief and not proof of magic in the society.

I can see why everyone was raving about it. The Winner's Curse is a great political novel though and I loved the minor conflict of might versus whit. There were just so many little things the nerd core of me loved like the moral implications of slavery, conquering and whether or not children (who might not have even been born at the time) should be held responsible for their forefather's actions.

This took me no time at all o read. I flew through it, hanging off of every word, utterly in love. I hope I can read the next one soon because I believe I'm certified trash for this series, the romance and the cover. I love how it took the girl in dresses trope and spun it on its head (sort literally?). ( )

Without giving the rest of the series a chance, I have made up my mind on this book. It’s a quality young adult book that starts of slow and maintains this pace for the rest of the book. Personally, pace is an issue for me to be engaged in the book. Add to that some character flaws that didn’t settle with me, hence, not a 5 star rating.

The books is about the 17 yr old daughter of the Valorian General Trajan, Kestrel who eventually falls in love with her Herrani slave, Arin. While Kestrel is portrayed as a smart and guarded character, the book starts off with her purchasing a slave that she overpays for without any real need of one. She is financially capable of paying the amount but incapable of coming up with a reasoning for her impulsive decision. The process of getting to know Arin, for Kestrel as well as the reader, is slow and careful (which is reasonable). A few instances occur where Arin is insubordinate towards Kestrel; this was shrugged off by her as a regular occurrence. I know this is fantasy fiction, but these incidents aren’t consistent with the history of Valoria conquering the Herran.

Towards the last half of the book, the story picks up some speed and a variety of events occur almost all at once ending the first book at an acceptable cliff hanger. However, personally I am not at a point where I’d enjoy the rest of the series. So, the next two books just have to wait. ( )

Kestrel is a pampered general's daughter who's chafing under the restrictions of her privileged position. With her love of music and an aversion to fighting, she's not the best role model in a society of conquering warriors. Arin is a slave, Kestrel's property, purchased in a fit of guilt during an outing with a friend. If spending an unseemly amount on Arin wasn't gossip fodder enough, being seen around town with the handsome blacksmith isn't helping. They forge an unlikely friendship that begins to buckle under the constraints of slavery, an impending revolution, and a love that no one can justify. ( )

The Winner’s Curse is a prime example of why you should never give up on a book. I have had the series on my TBR and shelves for many years. But I have never felt reading it when I’ve picked it up. But this month I was determined to add this to my TBR and finally read this. I am so glad that I did the book was amazing and everything I want from a YA fantasy novel.

I story follows a high-ranking general’s daughter by the name of Kestrel. She is struggling to decide if she is to become a soldier like her father or a wife to high ranking blue blood. Kestrel and her farther live in a land that once belonged to another group. One of these people is a man named Arin a blacksmith who is currently for sale in the local slave market. Our lead characters meet when Kestrel stubbles in into the market and gets caught up in Arin’s auction. She wins by placing a large bid and wins. This large win in known as a Winner’s Curse (or you just paid too much for your bid). When Arin and Kestrel return to the general’s home she does not realise to has got more than she bargained for.

I read this one sitting, not something I normally do, but I am happy that I did. I enjoyed the authors writing style and the many twists and turns in the story. I would highly recommend.
