The Winner's Curse - Marie Rutkoski

Reviewed by Jamie, Balgowlah

Think Roman Empire meets Victorian England, with a main character who is Elizabeth Bennet cross Katniss Everdeen. 
When Kestrel, the privileged daughter of a General, impulsively purchases Arin, a slave, at the market she sets the whole city talking. After being surrounded by people who are happy to dictate her life, marriage or the military, or talk insipidly about the lives of others, Arin is different, new and interesting and despite her knack for figuring out deep dark secrets, Kestrel cannot figure out Arin, or his plans for the province…and her. Equal parts intriguing and dangerous Kestrel and Arin’s story is perfect for girls 14+.
