The Bridge of Snow: A Tor.Com Original - Marie Rutkoski The Winner's Curse (Winner's Trilogy, #1) - Marie Rutkoski

Tor.com has Marie Rutkoski's short-story prequel, Bridge of Snow, online for free:

This short is an evocative tale, it's as haunting as it is pretty, and is a good sample of Marie's writing style.
