Bonus Feature: The end of the Audiobook has an illuminating interview between Rebecca Solar and Marissa Meyer
Winter - Marissa Meyer

๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 



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.






๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏ 


It took me forever to finish this series...and it's all because of this daunting book.  Seriously, this is like 23 hours long on Audio.  833 pages on kindle...but, hey I finally did it, and in December, no less, the busiest month all year long for me, and most everyone else.  Was it worth the 23 hours (technically more like 17 with the speed I listened on)  I spent on it...yeah, mostly.  


While I liked Jacin fine, I wasn't especially fond of Winter, she has this naivety, almost child-like demeanor that kind of got on my nerves.  Thankfully, the story isn't always from her pov.  We have lots of different pov's in this final book of the quartet, not including Fairest and Stars Above...the novella's as MM calls them.  The ending of the climactic battle scene has a scene that had me thinking Cinder deserved to be dead for her blatant stupidity...but I can't say more, just in case someone out there hasn't read these books.  Overall, fav characters in this series will always be Carswell Thorne and Iko, but that seems to be the case with everyone.  If MM ever decides to do a spin-off series...I would love some adventures with Thorne...as long as Cress can grow a backbone, she can be involved too.

Review: Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer
Cress - Marissa Meyer



Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together they're plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker; unfortunately, she's just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.





We have made it to Cress or Rapunzel . I’m always amazed when reading this series how well everything comes together, we have all the different story lines and fairy tales and yet it all comes together as one awesome story.

I rather enjoyed Cress in all her awkward and dreamy(ness) . She was fun to read and to see and follow her growth throughout the book. From the shy girl we first meet to the warrior she becomes in her own way.  I’m not really sure what to think of the shocking family reunion. I didn’t see it coming at all and it was really a surprise to me but also I’m not sure if it was a bit too convenient for the overall story line and everything connecting.

Thorne, I still enjoyed him a lot if not even more than last book. He puts out a tough shell for show but I think there is something nice and soft under that hard shell. I liked he handled his rather unexpected circumstance and he never lost hope or his humor. Be interesting to see how this will work out for him. 

Of course we meet Scarlet and Wolf again, it was great to see how they are together. Something happens to Scarlet that throws them and everyone for a loop and is not solved by the end of the book. I can’t wait to see how that turns out. We also get a glimpse of how dangerous Wolf can still be.

Then we have Cinder and Kai…… I really like Cinder and I love how she becomes so much more confident with each book, she also becoming funnier, I think or at least she loosens up a bit and it comes over that way. But she also becomes stronger and started to lead more.

Kai, I still really enjoy Kai but man oh man was he dense in this book …. So many glues and he never got it until it got spelled out for him.

Iko, still my favorite and I like to see her transformations, I just can’t get enough of her….. We also meet some new faces that I enjoyed but to be honest also was a bit confused by. I’m still not sure which site Jacin really is after that ending. Time will tell I guess.

A lot of stuff is going and things are moving fast in a war to stop Leveana . We also get a sneak peak and idea of Winter.

The ending was scream worthy and I can’t believe it ended there and I can’t wait to get to the next book, which is a huge book I see.

Overall I really enjoyed it some parts were off or I wasn’t sure but for the most part I really liked it…

I rate it 4 ★
