Winter by Marissa Meyer Review

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’ve finally finished Winter and along with that The Lunar Chronicles has now come to an end.

It is rare that a book series keeps getting better. Usually the first book is amazing and by the time that the series ends, the final book is a let down. I didn’t know what to expect when it came to Winter but I knew that this book was going to be full of action. I wasn’t let down once. It was everything that I wanted and more. There were surprises, heartbreaking moments and happy moments.

The addition of Winter (Snow White) led to an even more interesting story. Winter is the Princess of Luna, who refuses to use the Lunar gift which has ultimately led to her mental health being affected. For me, Winter was an extremely unique and exciting character. It’s nice to see a fairytale character being written in a way that is so unlike the usual depiction. I personally loved Winter’s character and the story that she brought into the series.

I didn’t want this book to end because it just kept getting better and better. I am happy though with how the series ended and I couldn’t be more thankful that it was better than my expectations.
