At school, and at home
We would be delighted to welcome you to our Grafton Street boutique in Mayfair London, please fill out your contact details below and your preferred date and time and we will confirm within 24 hours of receiving the request. You may already know your ring size, based on a ring that you currently own which is a comfortable fit. If not, you can request a Ring Sizing Gauge here. If you have a ring that is worn on the same finger as the one you would like to buy, then we will happily measure it for you. Alternatively, visit a local jeweller and ask if they could size your finger. A ring should fit snugly on your finger but still be loose enough to remove without too much tugging.
Avoid measuring your ring when it is hot or cold, and remember that the two hands differ slightly; a ring worn on the left hand will not be a perfect fit on the right hand. Please note that for finger sizes beyond P, there may be an extra charge. We love making unusual jewellery so if you have a design in mind you can make an appointment with one of our designers to have your dream jewellery made.

See a Problem?
Kestrel didn't know what possessed her to buy a slave when she and her best friend Jess ended up at the market by mistake. Something about the defiant look in his eyes drew her in.
She takes him back to the estate she shares with her father, a general in the Valoran army. At first, the man is given work as a blacksmith, but it's not long before Kestrel selects him as an escort into town one day and into society on another. As she gets to know him, she finally discovers his real name -- Arin -- and that he's a master of a parlor strategy game she used to always win; she has finally met her match.
Suddenly the two are grist for the rumor mill, only made worse when Kestrel defends Arin against a stealing charge at a society party. But Arin doesn't want her to defend him.

He knows that once Kestrel discovers his secret plans against those who enslave him -- her people -- she'll regret anything she ever felt for him. Despite a couple of society balls and some star-crossed lovers, this book gets quite cerebral. Arin and Kestrel's relationship builds carefully and is pretty complex, especially as the power dynamic shifts.
How Arin manages to break slave rules and enjoy parlor games with Kestrel seems a bit odd, but that's usually when Kestrel lets her guard down the most, pushing the story forward. Most writers would have enough on their plates just keeping Kestrel and Arin's slow-simmering relationship this full of tension.
Rutkoski, however, keeps the political intrigue high at the same time. The building tension between Arin and the leader of the rebellion adds quite a bit to the last third of The Winner's Curse. And the last few pages will make reading the sequel pretty irresistible. What does it mean? What does it have to do with the main characters?
