Fairest - Marissa Meyer

Impressive effort to chronicle the development of a villain. While Levana's choices are obviously destructive, Meyer is able to give them some sense of relatability, or at least inevitability, and delves into motivation without justifying.

My Review of The Fairest of Them
The Fairest of Them (Rae Hatting Mysteries, #1) - Heather Osborne

The Fairest of Them by Heather Osborne is the first book in the Rae Hatting Mysteries. Detective Luke has been trying to solve a case involving the Fairy Tale serial killer. After an awful turn of events, Rae Hatting joins the case.

 

This story had a couple of things that didn't make sense to me. The romance was way too quick and the decision to leave and pack by a secondary character just didn't fit with her being a cautious person.

 

All in all it was an okay read.

Book Theme Song

(link will take you to my tumblr post with video)

The Game by Disturbed  --Levana is one crazy a$$ B*tch…and she doesn't like to lose…

♫Is she not right?

Is she insane?

Will she now run for her life

In the battle that ends this day?

Is she not right?

Is she insane?

Will she now run for her life

Now that she lied to me♫

 

 

 

 

OVERALL RATING 

4.3/5 STARS

A-

 

My Thoughts

 

Lots of info in this one about Cinder, Cress, Winter, the Wolf/Man hybrids, and about how and why, Levana is such a lunatic.  When I asked someone if I needed to read this before reading Winter; I was told I really should…and…I'm really glad I did!
