Everything To Know About ‘The Midnight Lie’

If you loved Marie Rutoski’s The Winner’s Curse, you don’t want to miss her new YA fantasy novel, The Midnight Lie, out today!

via goodreads

The book is the first in a duology—set in the world of The Winner’s trilogy, I might add! It follows Nirrim, whose life as a Half Kith is heavily restricted. Forced to follow the rules, and forbidden from the finer pleasures reserved for High Kith, Nirrim keeps her dangerous secret closely guarded. But when she meets Sid, a traveler not to be trusted, Nirrim’s world is turned on its head as she abandons her old life in search of rumored High Caste magic. 


Marie Rutoski is known as something of a romance queen, especially the frustratingly forbidden love we see with Arin and Kestrel in The Winner’s Trilogy. As one of the most highly-anticipated LGBTQ romances of the year, The Midnight Lie is no exception. The romance, combined with Rutoski’s rich prose, is sure not to disappoint. While Rutoski draws on the same world as her prior novels, The Midnight Lie promises a glimpse into the struggles of lower status people, a change of direction from the high class life Kestrel leads in The Winner’s Curse.

But the answer to the biggest question remains to be seen: will Kestrel and Arin make a guest appearance in this book? (My heart sure hopes so!)

If you’re looking to catch Rutoski on tour, here are some dates to keep in mind. She will be at Cassandra Clare’s Chain of Gold launch tonight at Barnes and Noble Union Square in NYC at 8 PM. While this is Clare’s book launch, Rutoski will also be there to sign copies of The Midnight Lie. Keep an eye out for Rutoski on these dates:

March 7: North Texas Teen Book Festival, Irving, TX

March 14: Tucson Festival of Books, Tucson, AZ

March 28: Teen Author Boot Camp, Provo, UT

May 30: BookCon, NYC
