Publisher's Summary

Following your heart can be a crime.
A royal wedding is what most girls dream about. It means one celebration after another: balls, fireworks, and revelry until dawn. 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: that she agreed to marry the crown prince in exchange for Arin's freedom. But can Kestrel trust Arin? Can she even trust herself? For Kestrel is becoming very good at deception. She's working as a spy in the court. If caught, she'll be exposed as a traitor to her country. Yet she can't help searching for a way to change her ruthless world...and she is close to uncovering a shocking secret.
This dazzling follow-up to The Winner's Curse reveals the high price of dangerous lies and untrustworthy alliances. The truth will come out, and when it does, Kestrel and Arin will learn just how much their crimes will cost them.

A mediocre continuation of the first book.

Would you try another book from Marie Rutkoski and/or Justine Eyre?

Yes I would. They have creative ideas, this book just wasn't executed as well as the first book. The first book of the series, while fast moving with and slightly unbelievable with the love between the hero and heroine, has a certain captivation to it. But this book drags on much slower. There needed to be development of other characters along the way, most of the book is in the heroine's head and still some of the actions don't make sense. But the ending is actually very good! And worth the wait through the rest of the book.

Don't bother buying until book 3.

This book was written with the sole purpose of making it so you have to buy the third book. I hate when novels are cut off right in the middle of the story. I don't mind cliff hangers of some sort, but this ended so abruptly with more loose ends then I can count. It was extremely frustrating. The back and forth between the two main characters became very predictable and quite annoying. Two full books of the back and forth and I am completely over it. It's such a shame because this series has some real potential. Even the first half of this book was okay. By the time I got to the end I was fast forwarding just to get through it. It became painful to listen to. Maybe if I had waited until the 3rd book came out and listened to them together it wouldn't be so bad, but after the same repeating pattern of the characters and the terrible ending, I'm not wasting anymore time or money.
