I love The Winner’s Curse, and The Winner’s Crime so much. As in, whenever someone asks me for a book recommendation this series is at the top of my list. I have friends who can attest to me constantly asking them if they have read it yet.
This quote, and I have plenty others highlighted like it, is simply reflective of how beautiful the writing is. It’s lyrical and fluid while still sharp and calculating, like Kestrel.
. . . it was as if the story she had known was a rough sculpture, and her Father’s words sharp blows with a chisel, chipping details into marble until she could see the true shape hidden into he stone.
