Críticas

Every line of The Winner's Curse is beautifully written. This book gave me a rare and special reading experience. I loved it. I want more (Kristin Cashore, author of the Graceling Realm books)

Like any epic page-turner worth its salt, Rutkoski's richly imagined world is full of dynamic repartee, gruesome battle scenes, and shifting alliances. A high-stakes cliffhanger will leave readers eagerly awaiting the next book (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Rich characterization, exquisite world building and rock-solid storytelling make this a fantasy of unusual intelligence and depth ... Breathtaking, tragic and true (Kirkus Reviws, starred review)

The romance is heartstoppingly lovely ... fans of Kristin Cashore and Robin Lefevers will be pleased to have a new romance to follow (Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)

Faultlessly written. My mind is still reeling from those final few pages (Realm of Fiction)

Rich with detail, tension, and true feeling - and that goes for both the plot, and the characters. Everything about it is just incredible (There Were Books Involved)

Full of high society balls, lies and deceit, stolen moments in secret places, as well as being absolutely beautifully written, The Winner's Curse is a brilliant first book in a new trilogy that everyone should read! (Swept Away by Books)

The hype is right - The Winner's Curse is a beautiful, heartbreaking must-read (Icey Books)

Reseña del editor

Following the intrigue and danger of The Winner's Curse and the revolution and romance of The Winner's Crime, Kestrel finds herself in the tundra's mines and Arin has sailed home. The empire seems unstoppable.

Lies will come undone, and Kestrel and Arin will learn just how much their crimes will cost them in this third and final installment in the heart-stopping Winner's trilogy.

Yo es que con los libros en inglés y en español siempre tengo el mismo problema: el precio. Y que soy estudiante y no tengo un duro, eso también. Este libro estaba rebajadísimo cuando lo compré (5€ en tapa blanda) así que no pude resistirme. Estoy leyéndolo y de momento me está gustando mucho.

No termina de gustarme, la historia, desde mi punto de vista es excesivamente sencilla y ñoña. He leido libros mejores de esta autora

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas So disappointed 26 de abril de 2016
Por Kilie Steel - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
I had so, so many hopes for this book. The Winner’s Curse was alright, The Winner’s Crime was perfection, and The Winner’s Kiss was just… eh. I wasn’t disappointed necessarily by the ending, but I was definitely underwhelmed and wanted to skip over things.kiss

So let’s discuss Kestrel. She was such a great character in the first two books. She was incredibly strong, smart, and insightful. But in Kiss, I didn’t recognize her. I’m really not one to go for the memory loss thing. I suppose you could consider this version of Kestrel to be a true one. This Kestrel doesn’t remember being raised in the lap of luxury like the original.

Arin. I swooned SO hard over Arin in the second book. But this one, he was almost too broody and over-protective for me. It gave me a sour taste in my mouth. I know that Kestrel was in a vulnerable state, but Arin knows darn well that Kestrel is incredibly tough.

“Yes,” Arin said, “but even so, the risk for you is still different-”
“Stop saying that.”
“It is.” His face was unhappy. “There is a difference between you and me. If I die, you’ll survive. If you die, it will destroy me.”

Yuck. Who’s he to say that her grief would be different? I just can’t ship that.
Unpopular opinion time, with Kestrel’s new personality, I kind of would have rather had them split up at the end… Like a met each other and changed for the better thing.

Their relationship really fell flat for me. I didn’t find myself holding my breath like in Crime. Arin and Kestrel kissing in secret at the palace? HELLO!

The pacing was another issue. I feel like all the battles were a bit of a filler. I have nothing against the last book resolving the major conflict and whatnot, but at least make it interesting enough that I don’t want to skip over it.
Arin and his god of death really kind of came out of nowhere too. I can’t say that I enjoyed it. Again, if that was something that would have been in the first two books, I would probably feel better about it.

I just have so many mixed feelings about this book!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Supremely satisfying, gently beautiful - I don't have the right words 31 de marzo de 2016
Por HeatherAK - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
This series will live at the top of my favorite series. If I could put into words how much I love this series, and WHY, I should be writing like Marie Rutkoski. But, it is in part because I stand in awe of her beautiful words that it is my very favorite. I found myself starting to highlight the lines in the book that I loved, that I didn't want to forget.

The end to the series - is as gentle and beautiful as the smell of rain on a warm summer day. There, that is about as good as I can get.

I come away from reading it knowing that this author knows how someone's biggest weakness and strength can sometimes be just the flip side of the coin. That she knows how past events motivate current feelings - but that there is always a choice on how much to allow. I love Arin, in all his beautiful conflicted broken strength. When his hope died in the 2nd book, I sobbed. I cursed that I would have to wait SO LONG for the 3rd book to fix him, and me. It was worth the wait.

So, one of the things I highlighted, that demonstrates the beauty of the book, the resonance: "He stopped, blocked by the difficulty of holding himself to honesty and finding the way language fails, sometimes, to get honesty right."

And, lest you thing this is just some cerebral book - there is action, adventure, love, hate, laughter. I always think that the best authors would make the best therapists - but I don't want them to start that, and stop writing.

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The series went downhill 30 de junio de 2016
Por Ashley Evans - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
The biggest problem for me here was the romance.

I liked the romance a lot in the first book.
But then the romance fell apart in the second books (maybe too much).

This third book was supposed to bring it all back together, and it did, I just wasn’t on board with it. I think there was too much that fell apart in the second book and it didn’t get put back together in a way that I could enjoy and be part of. It didn’t lure me back in. It just made me roll my eyes.

I actually quite liked Kestrel and Arin separately, but I no longer liked them together. I had zero passion for their romance/relationship, and ultimately that’s what the entire book was about. I felt like even the war took second place to their romance. And since I didn’t love the romance, I couldn’t love the book.

The book felt slow.

This isn’t really a spoiler, but it spans the entire first half of the book so skip this next paragraph if you'd rather be surprised...
In the beginning, Kestrel had lost her memory and she just spent the first half trying to get it back. I guess this was frustrating to me because I, as the reader, knew exactly what she’d forgotten. I had to sit there while she tried to remember stuff that I already knew. It just wasn’t a fun read for me.
{{ end of semi-spoiler }}

Then, the middle to the end was basically one big road trip. Walking. Travelling. Riding. Camping. The actual action was very little. It didn’t hold my interest.

Certain parts of the plot were anti-climactic.

My favourite part was a minor character: Roshar. Sadly he ended up being quite a minor character who just appeared in certain places but didn’t do much. But I just loved his personality. He was funny and unpredictable.

I hoped for so much more, and I’m bummed that I was so disappointed.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas While I loved The Winner's Curse 7 de abril de 2016
Por Tracy @ Cornerfolds - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
The Winner's Kiss was one of my MANY anticipated reads for 2016! While I loved The Winner's Curse, The Winner's Crime focused too much on politics for my taste and I was hoping this final book would redeem the series. I actually found a copy at Barnes and Noble four days before it was supposed to be released and immediately dropped everything and devoured it!

This book picks up where The Winner's Curse leaves off, with Kestrel being completely devastated that her father would send her to a work camp, essentially leaving her for dead. In true Kestrel fashion, she immediately starts looking for ways to escape. I love Kestrel so much. Throughout this book Kestrel overcomes so, so much. She pulls herself up from the absolute lowest place she could have gone and rises above everything! She is strong and she's smart and, as someone who would very likely be incapable of defending myself hand to hand, I love seeing a heroine who holds her own with brain instead of brawn!

I actually had a little bit of a problem with Arin in the last book, but in The Winner's Kiss he is back to being the amazing, incredible love interest that I loved! It takes him a little while to figure things out for himself, but once he did, he was basically perfect! (Maybe a little too perfect, but whatever - I love him.) The romance between Arin and Kestrel was amazing! For reasons I cannot disclose, their relationship had to start again pretty slowly and Arin was always perfectly patient with Kestrel and did nothing but love her. This romance is the very definition of "in good times and in bad!"

Apart from Kestrel and Arin, I absolutely adored Roshar!! He was hilarious and crude and the perfect yin to Arin's yang. Roshar is unabashedly himself regardless of whether things are blowing up or he's playing cards. I loved his relationships with both Arin and Kestrel and that he always backed up Kestrel in wanting to do her part in the army he was responsible for. I also really enjoyed watching him grow as a character, especially towards the end when his sister showed up. To be honest, I would definitely read a spinoff series that was entirely about Roshar!

One thing I loved about this book is that it wasted absolutely no time on fluffy filler - it is non-stop action from beginning to end. It hits every important note, never dragging but never seeming rushed either. The Winner's Kiss revolves largely around the war (less politics, more blowing things up!) between the Heranni people (with the help of their Eastern allies) and the emperor. Arin and Kestrel both played very major roles, Arin with his mad war skills, and Kestrel with her brilliant strategy. In any other book I might not be interested in reading about a war, but I was so invested in the characters by the time it actually started that I felt like my life was dependent on the outcome!

I also really appreciated that Marie Rutkoski focused mostly on the Herani lands. Although there was plenty of time to get to know Heran in The Winner's Kiss, having the opportunity to explore it further as opposed to branching out into parts unknown. This made the world building feel so much more thorough and I liked that I didn't feel like I had to absorb a ton of new information. Instead I just got to enjoy the story!

The Winner's Kiss is easily the best book in The Winner's Trilogy! It was honestly the perfect ending to a series that I had become a little wary of and I don't think there's anything Rutkoski could have done better! (Except maybe give us that Roshar book??) If, like me, you didn't have a fantastic experience with The Winner's Crime, please give this one a chance anyway!

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas This book wasn’t perfect, but it was perfect for me 1 de abril de 2016
Por Sharanya Sharma - Publicado en Amazon.com

This book wasn’t perfect, but it was perfect for me.

There were so many things that I loved.

First, as with the previous books, the hauntingly beautiful prose left me giddy and tingling. Rutkoski conveys her characters’ anguish and their hope in fine, detailed brushstrokes of language. Her phrasing is unique without being showy, her choice of imagery almost perfectly balanced with the actions of individual characters. Speaking of, Kestrel’s character arc was wonderfully structured. I was a little skeptical, at first, with the amnesia plotline (because AMNESIA, REALLY), but with Rutkoski at the helm I needn’t have worried! Kestrel’s loss of memory was achingly captured. It was a great way to bring new depth and growth to a character that I once thought of as “aloof”. It challenged Kestrel’s — and thereby our — perceptions of herself, which complicated her relationships with others. I particularly loved Kestrel’s careful, bruising understanding of her dynamic with her father, and I loved watching her work through and learn from it from a different place. And, just as importantly, it knitted her relationship with Arin out of more solid, brighter thread. This, in turn, gave Arin and Kestrel’s star-crossed romance a heartwrenchingly satisfying ending. I loved how Kestrel and Arin, through misspoken words and cut-off conversations, arrive, with painful, awkward honesty, to the conclusion that they can — and should — always meet each other as equals. It’s a wonderfully open, mature way to sweeten the romance between two fierce and complex characters.

But no, it wasn’t entirely perfect.

There were a few plot points that were rushed through and blown past in service of character growth. Again, this was fine for me, since I place much more emphasis on character development than plot in my own writing and reading. But some might question just how easy it was for Arin to arrive at the tundra and rescue Kestrel within the span of barely 12 hours or so, when Kestrel had plotted for days and had failed disastrously. (And it didn’t entirely sit right with me that Kestrel ultimately needed Arin to come save her.) Some may not entirely love Kestrel’s struggle with amnesia, as it somewhat erases her struggles in the past few books (her deteriorated relationship with Jess, for example). And some will find the ending to be squished together and rushed, making the whole climax feel like a long, light breeze, rather than a savage storm. The back and forth between Kestrel’s climax and Arin’s, in particular, was hard for me to follow, and made me feel a bit light-headed when everything was over.

And yet, when it was over, I was left with that queer ache that comes with feeling extremely satisfied, and wishing I was not done. All said, this is a lush, romantic conclusion to a richly imagined trilogy. A triumphant story about the enduring power of faith and love.
