Winter (The Lunar Chronicles)

The #1 New York Times Bestselling Series!

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.


Winter is an epic finale to a wonderful series. It definitely has a Hunger Games vibe, but I actually found this story more riveting. Although, it is pretty obvious from the cover that the newest fairy tale character addition would be a snow white spin off, I was delighted and intrigued to see what I'm assuming is an extra special quality to her reminiscent of another well loved classic.

Despite the multiple changes in point of views, each character is well developed and stay true the essence in which they were written from start to finish.  The world, or worlds, Marrissa Meyer created is down right fascinating and fun to read. The plot twists were thorough and left my mind spinning long after I finished the book. I'm beyond thrilled that the Lunar series has become one of the few books I will personally recommend to fellow readers as being well deserved 5 star tale.
