I really, really enjoyed this one. I don't think that we get to see female protagonists that specifically are not good at combat and only really use strategy and wits to fight. Many have a combination but almost always they can throw a punch as well. I really enjoyed the strategy aspect of this book. I think it was really cool to see people trade secrets and proposals to get what they need instead of just fighting it out. I thought the world building in this book was also very strong. It was clear to me that the author and been influenced and had researched really life empires and societies when writing this book and it really made the world feel real and like something like this could have been possible. I loved hearing about the differences in cultures of the two groups of people in this book and having characters that don't really fit the expectations on their particular culture. I also loved the characters. They just felt so real and well rounded to me. Both of the main characters had serious flaws that made them very relatable as characters, which is something I really appreciate. All the relationships also seemed very realistic, wether it was romantic, friendships, or the relationships to parents or parental figures. I think the author also did a really great job with depicting the relationship of two people who have a real power imbalance, a slave and a slave owner. The character development I thought was also wonderful and just noticeable enough. For instance the love interest says at the beginning of the book that a slave cannot truly love their master and later he obviously goes on to fall in love with his master. This just showed me how the author was using subtle phrases and moments to show us readers the character development. I definitely want to read the next book and read it soon. I did genuinely enjoy all the strategy elements in this story and I can't wait to read about those things in the next book. ( )

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. ( )
