Book Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer @marissa_meyer

Winter by Marissa Meyer book cover and review
Winter is everything one could hope for in the conclusion to the Lunar Chronicles Series.

The characters all come together (and apart, and back together) to help Cinder kill Levana and take the crown that is rightfully hers. The path isn't easy --it takes over 800 pages! But there isn't any extra padding to lengthen the book. There is just one obstacle after another.

And usually in books like that, I feel like sometimes there is too much luck involved when the characters escape from certain death. I didn't get that feeling in Winter. They all worked hard and put their lives on the line time after time.

The new setting, Luna, adds a lot to the challenges. The romances continue and you can't help rooting for love. The new characters fit right in and I know we're all hoping for a "happily ever after" for all of them. Well....I'm not going to tell you about that.

I don't think I need to say much more. I don't think I've read a bad review for Winter yet, and there are plenty of them. If you've read the other books in the series (Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Fairest), run, don't walk, and get Winter as soon as you can. If you haven't read the Lunar Chronicles yet, then I highly recommend it.
