    Book details


Don't miss the thrilling final chapter of Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles series.

Princess Winter is admired for her grace, kindness and beauty, despite the scars on her face. She's said to be even more breath-taking than her stepmother, Queen Levana...

When Winter develops feelings for the handsome palace guard, Jacin, she fears the evil Queen will crush their romance before it has a chance to begin.

But there are stirrings against the Queen across the land. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even find the power to launch a revolution and win a war that's been raging for far too long.

Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter claim their happily ever afters by defeating Levana once and for all?

Fairy tales are becoming all the rage, with the TV shows Once Upon a Time and Grimm spinning them through a modern filter. . . Meyer's debut novel Cinder, though, combines a classic folk tale with hints of The Terminator and Star Wars (USAToday.com [praise for CINDER])

    This was an excellent conclusion to a superbly crafted series. Boy was this book long! It's the second long book I've read in a row (the other was the sublime Oblivion) and it didn't disappoint in the slightest. I loved every minute of it.One of the things I love the most about this series is Marissa's ability to develop so many different characters and give them all a unique voice. This could have all gone terribly wrong, but it didn't, and each chapter flowed smoothly even with the POV changes. I read a lot of books narrated from one or two characters perspectives and this was a very refreshing change. She also gave me 4, yes, FOUR, different romances to root for. Pure heaven. All the romances were so sweet and I was praying that all our couples got their HEA.This book was about so much more than romance, though. It was a race against evil to reinstate Cinder as the rightful Lunar heir, and thwart Queen Levana's despicable plans. The plot was full of twists and turns and though I knew it was all going to work out fine in the end, I honestly couldn't have predicted the journey.The ending was great, even if I did want more! I would love a novella set a few years in the future to show where each of our couples are. Pretty please, Marissa?This series is such an imaginative take on the classic fairytales we all know and love, and I'm in awe of this author's ability to develop such a fantastic world with amazingly different, complex characters and put her own unique spin on the classic stories.I also adore her writing. In my opinion, each book in this series is better than the last. If you haven't yet checked out this series - you should! I've bought the collection for my niece for Christmas and I just know she's going to love them as much as I have.Incredible ending to an incredible series. I'm so sad it's over, but look forward to whatever Marissa produces next.As an aside - fantastic value for money considering the length.

    Winter is an incredibly long book at over 800 pages. Although I didn’t feel like the story was ever dragging. There were definitely moments within the story that it was hard to put it down. The last 100 or so pages are incredibly action packed and left me wondering where the story was going to go.I absolutely loved that we were reunited with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress. I adored that we saw their relationships develop with their ‘Princes’. I absolutely loved the relationships and Winter and Jacin are no exception. I think Marissa Meyer writes romances so well. I have rooted for every one of the relationships. Levana is fantastic in this book. So wonderfully wicked.One slight negative that I have about this story, was that it felt it could be condensed a lot more. 800 pages + is mammoth!

    Winter of the Lunar Chronicles series is a heartfelt and epic retelling, with a twisting plot, memorable characters and a vast, beautiful and rich world. With the addition of swoon-worthy romance and laugh-out-loud humour, this is a read worthy of every page. A great close for the Lunar Chronicles novel series!

    A great book and I'm halfway through and I have found that a whole section of the book is not attached, they fell out and I noticed that they appear to have not have ever been sewn or glued at all.

    Cracking finish to the series

    4.5 starsI'm so sad this series has ended! But what an epic way to go!First off, I'm going to beg you all not to be turned away by the 800+ pages, because they are filled to the brim with action, romance and plot-twists. Although at some points it felt like Meyer was trying to give us dramatic cliff-hangers that weren't actually that...well, dramatic, the story was never dull and I kept finding myself picking it back up again. I finished it within 24 hours of starting.The book opens with Jacin on trial for treason after cavorting in the plot with Cinder (aka Princess Selene) to overthrow Queen Levana. Princess Winter, the girl who Jacin has loved since a boy, is the reason why he abandoned the Rampion Crew, (Thorne, Cinder, Cress, Wolf, Scarlet - who is imprisoned in Luna at the start of this book - and Kai, who'd been 'kidnapped' to help them,) and his loyalty to her is one of the drives of this book. Princess Winter is SUCH an amazing character, and Meyer weaves her very complex personality into the story with ease. I absolutely loved her!I also loved the fact that while the romances were what kept me hooked, they weren't the focal point of the story. There's just so much scheming, witty-one-liners from Thorne, brooding from Wolf and independent-women-that-don't-need-no-men-but-will-have-them-anyway stuff going on, it was great. The romantic points in the story are adorable without being sickly when they do happen, though. I was unsure whether I liked Thorne and how he treated Cress at some points in the story, but again, Meyer's brilliant aptitude as a writer means she manages to use this poor treatment to his advantage when his feelings do come out. My heart was melting, I can tell you!Also, just going to put it out there how perfect Kai and Cinder are together, which this book really demonstrates. He sees her with such clarity, is supportive, and is just generally the best character that Meyer could have concocted for our lovable cyborg. Cinder's level-headedness and courage always makes him proud, and even when Levana is manipulating Kai, Cinder always trusts him and gets on with the job, both of them working towards 'the good future'. The one with both of them in it, together.NO SPOILERS, DON'T WORRY, but the ending was perfection, and it wasn't one I predicted either. Just get to the last chapter. It's so well-thought through, political, romantic, just everything you would want to end Cinder and Kai's four-book courtship. I also liked the fact that maybe, (just maybe!), she has left it open for another book without saturating the finale 'Winter' was supposed to be, or giving it less impact than it should have.I only have two criticisms:1) There were points in the story where it was just too unbelievable that Levana hadn't killed at least one of the crew. There was a lot of opportunities in the 800 pages and it just seemed too good to be true.2) It probably could have been crammed into a more succinct, less complicated 600 pages, but I was impressed by the way Meyer managed to manoeuvre all of the intricisies of the plot, the characters and make it a somewhat believable tale in the elaborate world she'd created. The slow build of the revolution is one of the reasons I think this book is so long, as Meyer had to follow all of the characters in their various parts in it that at times it felt a little prolonged, which also meant the emotional side of things with the romances didn't punch through as much as you would have expected or hoped.Despite this, it will leave you satisfied, don't worry!Overall, 4.5 stars. A little long, but by the final chapter it is definitely worth it!
