STARS ABOVE: A Lunar Chronicles Collection (The Lunar Chronicles) - Marissa Meyer

Detailed and insightful background snippets on the main cast and a satisfying look forward into their post-Winter future. Nice supplement to the series, with some moments of emotional catharsis and an astonishing peek behind the world-building scenes.

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.

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles) - Marissa Meyer

Meyer does an admirable job of pulling this richly woven tale together. Dystopian take-the-castle efforts compose much of the runtime, with more twists and redirects than forward momentum, and a surprising amount of romance tucked in around the edges. The astonishingly creative and deep description continues, exploring the experiences of mentally ill, disabled and oppressed people, the nature of android and machine interactions with humanity, and political alliances. All the character journeys, relationships, motivations and storylines stream together for a big, if not entirely surprising finish that manages to weave in just one more fairytale retelling for a series already chock full.

Cress - Marissa Meyer

Another solid middle entry to the series. The multiple viewpoints feel natural, and the plot twists are thick on the ground. Still top marks for world building and telling details in a uniquely creative setting, touching on subjects such as childhood abuse and isolation as well as the nature of humanity. Romance-y stuff and revolution-y stuff all ramping up for the finale. Engaging read.
