Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mark 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.

This is the final book in the Lunar Chronicles. I loved the first three and I couldn’t wait to see how the story ended.

Picking up right where Cress ended Emporer Kai has been ‘kidnapped’ and Queen Levana is furious. Levana is one hell of a woman and I have never met anyone that evil. I mean that woman is evil to the bone. I don’t think there is a part of her that is good.

I really loved this book but I am struggling with where to go with this review. It’s a long book and a lot happens. While this book is called Winter there is not as much focus on Winter as the other characters got in their books. This is a little disappointing but I think it was necessary in order to complete the story.

I loved the alternative POVs in this story. I love how the characters’ stories all become so intertwined. I love how they all have their roles and they are so integral to the plan.

Each character has grown so much since the first book, Cinder especially. Melissa does an excellent job of finishing off everyone’s stories. This was a perfect end to the series. I really loved it.

Rebecca also did an excellent job on the narration. I love her voice and I would absolutely listen to more of her narrations.
