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?
I don’t want to give too much away with this book because it is the final instalment in the Lunar Chronicles series. This was a wonderful wrap up to this exciting and refreshing take on our classic fairytales. Meyer had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. This book has so many twists and turns, you never know quite what to expect. I thought for sure so many times throughout this finally that things would end up terribly. Common sense says that the story will end happily ever after, but Meyer is excellent at making you believe otherwise. This is one of my favourite YA series. It’s been intense, creative, and full of loveable characters. Despite having so many characters, it’s easy to connect with each of them and to see them grow for the better. If you haven’t read the Lunar Chronicles, I’d highly recommend it. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
