The action, romance, adventure & more was very thrilling to read in this series finale. The wedding between Queen Levana & Prince Kai takes place in Luna and along the way, Levana's stepdaughter Winter finds herself plotting against her stepmom with the help of her love interest & childhood friend Jacin. It was so cool seeing all these fairytales all cross paths to reach one common goal and the twists make it soooo good. I would recommend this book for people 13+.

Winter, by Marissa Meyer, is the action-packed last installment of the Lunar Chronicles series. The plot follows Winter, the princess and soon-to-be ruler of the Lunars, as she secretly joins forces with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress. Winter has always hated her step-mother, Queen Levana, and is on a mission to overthrow her and take her rightful place as ruler of Luna. Winter, Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress face numerous challenges as they strive to defeat Queen Levana and find their happily ever after once and for all. This book is filled with action, adventure, and suspense, with lots of humor and unexpected plot twists. It is a must read for someone who enjoys fantasy and sci-fi novels, and I would definitely recommend it.

I love Winter. She is such a lovely character. She is insane but also really insightful. Fragile and strong at the same time. She is a beautiful chaos of contradictions which sounds annoying but it really isn't. Her charm translates into text.

This book is just action packed and always leaving characters on the knifes edge, separated and in perilous situations. To be honest I don't think I was paying proper attention to the climax which I am frustrated with myself for (I may have to quickly go back and read that section in the physical book).

The ending to this book is very satisfying, especially after all of the drama the characters go through to achieve the ending.

A great conclusion to an inventive world that I found sad to leave.

I loved this series so much! 10/10!
The plot, character development and overall writing is amazing! It was so intriguing and I adored every bit of it. If your looking for a roller coaster of emotions and suspense, this is your book! Though, it was sometimes hard to keep up with, the book past my expectations. The extra books are a joy to read as well!

I love this series so much! This series is a must-read if you like a fairy tale, fiction, and also sci-fi. The entire Marrisa Meyers series is a series of young adult novels that put a creative spin on the classic fairytales such as Cinderella and Snow White in a futuristic world where robots/cyborgs exist. Despite the facial scars on her face, Princess Winter is heavily admired on the Lunar planet. As stepdaughter to Queen Levana, the princess heavily despises her stepmother as her stepmother mistreats her and locks her up with heavy guards presence. The queen Levana underestimates Winter's powers and strengths, therefore joining Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress Winter hopes to defeat the long-lasting queen and unite Earth and the Lunar people.

After successfully kidnapping Emperor Kai, Cinder and her friends make a plan with him to convince Queen Levana to host their wedding on Luna, allowing them to win over the citizens of Luna and spark a revolution.

This incredible last installment of the series is satisfying and has a complex, unique plot with many well-established characters.

While this is supposed to be Winter's book, I instead felt like this was more Cinder and Kai's finale. Most of the other main characters in this series were pushed aside to tie up their story and as I really didn't like them as much as the other characters, I ended up not enjoying this one. Disappointing.

I am sooooooo sad to finally complete the best series on Earth! This series was soooooo amazing! This book was so good too. I LOVED how she was able to build Winters story line and still have all the other couples engaged in the story too! It was so awesome! My favourite couple are definitely Thorne and Cress. I love Thorne because he gives me Flynn Rider vibes and I also LOVE Flynn rider so it was just perfect! This book is tied with Cress for my favourite books in the series. LOVED it. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND. Great ending!

"They think only of themselves, giving no thought to all I've done to bring them security and structure and-" She spun away, her shoulders trembling. "Am I to wait until they put a real crown on her head?"
Horror filled up Jacin's chest and this time he couldn't disguise it.
She was psychotic.
