5 stars


Winter (Amazon)


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?


Reading the book was bittersweet. On one hand YAY Winter is out and I can finally read it, but on the other hand… Winter is out and is the last book in the series. Ugh, so much sadness. I didn’t want the book to end. But of course as all other great things, it had to come to an end. And what a great ending. 🙂

All the characters are so amazingly diverse and unique. I just couldn’t help but love them all. If I had to pick one couple thought that was my absolute favorite I would pick Scarlet and Wolf. They had to overcome so much, but what they feel for each other never waivers.

Winter was a great character. I mean come on, who doesn’t love a crazy princess who sees blood seeping from the walls. Plus what is going on between her and Jacin, you could feel his heart breaking every time he interacts with Winter.

I love how fast paced this book was. There wasn’t a lot of sitting around talking everything to death.

There were so many feels involved while reading this book. One minute you are yelling out in joy, the next holding your breath along with Cress as she sneaks around.

“Gritting her teeth, Cinder used every ounce of energy left to push herself off the lake bottom, struggling back toward the surface. Her left leg and hand weren’t responding to her controls. They had become nothing but dead weights at the end of her limbs, and her shoulder screamed where the mutant soldier had dug his teeth into her flesh. It took every ounce of remaining energy to claw her way upward.” This was probably my least favorite part. Just felt off to me. But that is just me being picky I guess.

I don’t want to give away to much about the book because there are still so many people who haven’t read or finished reading this book. But I will say that I LOVED it. And that if you haven’t read The Lunar Chronicles series you really should.
