The Winner's Kiss brings Kestral and Arin back together (eventually) but their relationship still isn't solid. I can't say why, but it's heartbreaking. As they are trying to build a relationship, they are also trying to win a war, so that complicates things.
I really don't have much to say about the plot, but if you enjoyed the first two books, you will certainly want to pick up The Winner's Kiss. As I said in my review of The Winner's Crime, things would go a bit smoother if they would just tell each other the truth about how they feel, although that wasn't as much of an issue in this book.
I did feel that The Winner's Kiss dragged a bit, especially after Kestral and Arin are traveling together and the war has begun. The plot just seemed to be in limbo there for a while.
I loved the ending. Sometimes you just need to have all the loose ends tied up and a least some people need to be happy!
The Winner's Kiss is a satisfying conclusion to the series, and if you want to know more about the world and the characters, read my reviews of the earlier books linked above. A great series that I've been recommending to a lot of my teens.
