Marie Rutkoski - The ​Winner's Crime
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.

Marie Rutkoski - The ​Shadow Society
Darcy ​Jones doesn't remember anything before the day she was abandoned as a child outside a Chicago firehouse. So she isn't surprised that she doesn't recognize Conn, the new boy at her high school, even though he seems to know her—or at least know something about her. What does surprise her is how quickly she comes to trust Conn, and that he makes her feel both desire and desired in a way she hadn't thought possible. But his interest in her is confusing. It doesn't line up with the way he first looked at her. As if she was his enemy. When Conn betrays Darcy and she is arrested, she realizes that she can't rely on anything—not Conn, not herself, and not even the laws of nature. Because this world isn't the only one. Darcy belongs in an alternate world where the Great Chicago Fire never happened, and deadly creatures called Shades terrorize the human population. Darcy needs some answers. And she hates that the person most able to help her get them is Conn.

Marie Rutkoski - Jacks ​and Queens at the Green Mill

Marie Rutkoski - The ​Winner's Crime - A nyertes bűne
Szerelem ​vagy a hazád. Te mit választanál? Lady Kestrel eljegyzése Valoria koronahercegével bőven ad okot az ünneplésre: bálak, előadások, tűzijáték és mulatságok követik egymást a birodalom fővárosában. De Kestrel számára olyan az egész, mintha a maga készítette kalitkába kellene beülnie. Mikor kémkedni kezd a császári udvarban, egész élete merő színlelés lesz, és épp annak az embernek nem mondhat semmit, akinek a bizalma a legfontosabb számára... Arin, aki továbbra is népe szabadságáért harcol, sejti, hogy Kestrel többet tud, mint amennyit elárul neki. Amikor a lány egyre közelebb kerül egy döbbenetes rejtély megoldásához, az Arin arcát elcsúfító vágásnál is fájdalmasabb lehet az igazság. A nyertes trilógia második részében a hazugságok mellett az is kiderül, hogy Arinnak és Kestrelnek mivel kell fizetnie az egymás ellen elkövetett bűneikért.

Marie Rutkoski - The ​Winner's Kiss - A nyertes csókja
Háborúban ​és szerelemben nincsenek játékszabályok. Kestrel a tundra felé tart egy rabszállító kocsin, és kevés a valószínűsége, hogy a munkatábort élve megússza. Abban bízhat csak, hogy kódolt üzenete eljut Arinhoz, és hogy a fiú megérti az üzenet tartalmát. A múlttal birkózó Arin és keleti szövetségesei közben behajóznak Herranba, számolva egy esetleges támadás lehetőségével. Kestrel üzenete és a háború nagyjából egy időben érkeznek a városba: megkezdődik a versenyfutás az idővel, az elemekkel, az emlékekkel és az ellenséggel. A küzdelem minden fronton reménytelennek tűnik. Ha belátod, hogy vak voltál... van-e megbocsátás?

War ​has begun. Arin is in the thick of it, with the East as his ally and the empire as his enemy. He’s finally managed to dismiss the memory of Kestrel, even if he can’t quite forget her.

At least, that’s what he thinks. But far north lies a work camp where Kestrel is a prisoner. Can she manage to escape before she loses herself? As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover unexpected roles in battle, terrible secrets, and a fragile hope. The world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and Kestrel and Arin are caught between. In a game like this, can anybody really win?
