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?
This book was my most anticipated book of the year, and I am so happy to say that this book did not disappoint me at all. This book is the perfect example of how to end a series. I think Marissa Meyer deserves a round of applause for this book and this series.
My favorite thing about this book and this series in general would be the characters. I loved each character. I have grown attached to every single character in this series. I have never cared so deeply for a cast of fictional characters before.
As I stated, I loved the characters in this book. However, I loved the relationships between the characters even more. The friendships in this book were all wonderfully written and developed. The friendships in this book are the definition of squad goals. Even though I love the friendships, I am obsessed with the romantic relationships.
Scarlet and Wolf had such a rough journey in this book, but they were always 100% dedicated to each other. Their romantic bond definitely seemed the most passionate of all the couples in this book.
Cress and Thorne were adorable as always in this book. Their romantic moments were so precious and they made me squeal with joy. I think they are perfect for each other.
Winter and Jacin had such a strong bond. I loved how they were always there for each other through thick and thin.
Kai and Cinder were as awkward and adorable as ever in this book. I LOVED the way their romance wrapped up.
I JUST LOVE ALL OF THESE CHARACTERS AND ROMANCES SO MUCH.
This book was just simply brilliant. The book was fast paced and it constantly kept me on the edge of my seat. The writing in this book was amazing. The dialogue was believable and extremely charming, the world building was fantastic, and I never felt like the book was too long. I could have read 800 more pages of this book. My only complaint with this book was that I wish the main characters would have had more time together. They got split up a lot, and I just wanted them to be all together a lot more.
Overall, this was a fantastic book and a fantastic series. Words cannot explain how much I will miss this series.
