Book Review: Winter




Marissa Meyer

Goodreads Summary:

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?

My Thoughts:

The thing I most dislike about this book is that it’s over.  I was so excited for this release.  I pre-ordered Winter and it was waiting for me on my doorstep when I got home from work on the day of its release.  I spent the week before the release re-reading all the other Lunar Chronicle books so the stories would all be fresh in my mind.  This, the finale to the series, did not disappoint.  I relished the entire 800+ pages.  I loved having all the stories collide into one and still love all the characters.  Cress and Thorne were particularly adorable in this book, and I still maintain that my favorite character just might be Iko.  There were a lot of action scenes in this one, but I never found myself skimming.  There were some great one-liners that made me smile, and the book held my attention well.  I just wanted to keep turning pages.  I’m so sad that this is the end of the series.  Meyer did a fabulous job and I can’t wait to see what she does next!


Would I recommend this to my fellow book lovers?  Absolutely
Would I recommend this to my tween/teen daughters?  Yes!  I have, in fact.  And NONE of them will read it.  It’s driving me batty!


5 of 5 stars.
