5stars

Synopsis

winter cover lunar chroniclesPrincess 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.

My Review

As first seen on USA Today

Cinder: A quick-thinking cyborg mechanic who falls in love with a prince.

Scarlet: A gutsy spaceship pilot with a red hoodie who falls for a wild street fighter named Wolf.

Cress: A brilliant hacker imprisoned on a satellite who meets the captain of her dreams.

Winter: A beloved, scarred princess who secretly longs for a common guard while enduring her evil stepmother’s derision.

This unlikely group of girls ally together to save a kingdom, summoning courage to conquer Queen Levana, who single-handedly shattered their dreams for a happily ever after.

Bestselling author Marissa Meyer delivers in spades with the much-awaited finale to The Lunar Chronicles — a fresh, futuristic twist on classic fairy tales. Winter’s exciting, action-packed plot will have you devouring all 824 pages fast and furiously. You’ll relish in the romances, gasp at surprising plot twists and bite your nails as everything that could possibly go wrong does. It’s a worthy, spellbinding finale of which you won’t want to stop talking.

“She was a girl made of ice and glass.”

The story opens with Princess Winter, stepdaughter of Luna’s Queen Levana. Known for her unfailing compassion and unparalleled beauty, Winter continues to lose her grip on reality as Lunar sickness pervades. Refusing to use her Lunar gift has taken a toll on her mind, but she refuses to mirror any part of Queen Levana’s heinous tendencies. And as the people’s love and admiration of Winter grow, Levana’s loathing and jealousy dangerously escalate.

Meanwhile, Cinder and the gang ready for a revolution. With the entire rebellion aboard the Rampion, I couldn’t help but be reminded of everything this group has gone through together — the loss of loved ones, the ache of betrayal, broken hearts and shattered minds. Cinder shines in this novel, as we see both her intelligence and bravery prevail over her very relatable vulnerability.

“Cinder needed them. All of them. She shut her eyes and reminded herself to be brave.”

As the spark of revolution catches fire, bullets fly and chaos reigns. Levana begins to lose control, becoming more lethal than ever. Marrying Emperor Kai, becoming empress, holding dominion over both Earth and Luna, that is all she can think about.

“She imagined the history texts centuries from now, telling the story of the Lunar queen who had conquered the blue planet and begun a new era. An era ruled by those most worthy.”

It’s a battle of wills, a collision of power … a fight to the death.

Fans of the series will relish every tension-filled second, as each character races toward their own happily ever after.
