Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar 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.
Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?

This book was pretty darn great.
One thing I loved was due to the length, we got to hear equally from all of our characters. Usually the namesake of the book gets most of the attention, but it was spread all around in this installment, which is perfect for adding to the drama.
Marissa Meyer is so great at portraying all kinds of characters in her stories, the wide range is so amazing to read about. I actually really loved Winter, the character. She was funny and quirky, and yeah, a little crazy. She was so different from all the characters you typically read about nowadays in young adult literature. (See my strong female character discussion post)
The world, the world. You know you’re reading a good book when you feel like you’ve sunk into the story, and the street corner you’re reading about is one you’ve passed every day. That is what I felt when reading Winter, and that is magic.
This was just the ending I wanted. Really. It was almost too perfect.
