Cover: 'Winter'

Staff Review: "Winter" by Marissa Meyer


In the final installment of The Lunar Chronicles, Princess Winter joins Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress in a revolution to bring down her evil stepmother, Queen Levana. Winter is beautiful, kind, and the people of Luna adore her. When Levana orders Winter's death due to her beauty and popularity, Winter escapes thanks to Jacin, her lifetime friend and love interest. The four heroines team up along with Wolf, Thorne, and Emperor Kai to start a revolution and put Cinder, the lost Princess Selene and the true heir to Luna's throne, back in her rightful place. Will all of the princesses find their happily-ever-after? With many allusions to the tale of Snow White, this is a great end to the Lunar Chronicles series. This book and series is recommended to any fans of young adult fiction, science fiction, or anyone looking for a retelling of classic fairy tales.
