Winter Final


Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend–the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.

Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters? Fans will not want to miss this thrilling conclusion to Marissa Meyer’s national bestselling Lunar Chronicles series.

I started this book with a blend of hope and sadness. I wanted to find out how Cinder would get her throne, since she obviously would, but I knew that once I turned the last page, that would be the end of my adventures with the girls. Yes, I did tear up in the end for these very reasons. The story itself is the longest, and the most complex of the series. There are times when I wonder how they’re going to get out of the situation. All the girls have their roles to play. I also liked how no one comes out without reminders of the things they’ve gone through. It’s very hard to write about the story without spoilers, but suffice to say, yes, it does take place on Luna, and we actually do get to see a great deal of it.

This is a must read for people of all ages! I am absolutely in love with this series! Marissa couldn’t have written it any better! The charter development is flawless and the story is insanely amazing!… It moves at a fast pace and kept me up all night reading. I finished this book in 1 sitting. You will not be able to put it down. It’s just that good! Marissa Meyer has done it again!
