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?
Man, it was just so great to read this book! A bid sad, because we have to say goodbye to the characters, but they had such a great run in this series, so they deserve their happiness! And this book gave them that in the end!
So this was a big humongous book. It has the main characters Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and now Winter narrating, which is really great, as we've been introduced to them, the books have been getting bigger, and this is the final book with everything going on. So yeah. Glad that it was over 800 pages!
I loved all the ups and downs! There were a lot of moving pieces to this book, from Winter being with Levana and then not, Cinder and her friends and trying to take her throne. Add their guys, and that was a lot of moving parts!
There were some pretty hard parts, like Levana using her power to control everybody that she could to harm Cinder. That she deliberately made Winter sick so she'd spread it to kill off the rebels. But that ending was really great and people got happy endings.
One review that I saw mentioned Cinder's plans of giving up her throne. But if the roles were reversed, if Kai was the one with the Lunar throne, he would've given it up, because the Lunars, with their gifts, makes it a bad idea to have a single ruler. Yep.
I really enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to read what Marissa Meyer writes next!
