Als Marissa Meyer begann, die „Lunar Chronicles“ zu schreiben, wusste sie, dass die zentrale Antagonistin ihrer Geschichte auf der bösen Königin aus „Schneewittchen“ basieren würde. Ihre Figur faszinierte sie. Welche Frau würde so großen Wert auf Schönheit legen, dass sie bereit wäre, all diese furc...

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.

~*Full review notes on The Bent Bookworm!*~“Love is a conquest. Love is a war.”Feels:I went into this absolutely positive I would never feel anything remotely akin to sympathy for Levana. She’s such an unholy terror in the other books! And seemingly without reason. I felt like she just liked being e...

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.

AudiobookWow, what a book. It seems like it's trying to portray Levana has a sympathetic character when she was young.

I can't deny that I feel bad for Levana in this book, but even from the first page of the book I could tell that there was something not quite right with this girl, and it wasn't just because I knew she would turn into one of the scariest villains I've read about. Even knowing that I was surprised b...

In this prequel to the Cinder series we follow Levana from the age of fifteen for a number of years, learning her backstory. Some of it we know from other books, but in case you are new to the Cinder series, there’s not really much I can tell you without spoiling those books, especially the first on...

Goodreads review: Mirror, mirror on the wall,Who is the fairest of them all?Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never ...
