FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who is the Fairest of them all? Pure evil has a name, hides behind a mask of deceit, and uses her ""glamour"" to gain power.

New York Times bestselling author Marissa Meyer reveals the story behind her fascinating villain in Fairest, an unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes a special full-color image of Levana's castle and an excerpt from Winter, the exciting conclusion to The Lunar Chronicles.

I have to admit that in the beginning I was shocked by how much I identified with Levana. That feeling of having to sit by and watch everyone around you get everything you've ever wanted. The bitterness, anger, sadness and envy that threatens to swallow you whole. I enjoyed this book, though.
