My very short review: SO MANY FEELS and the BEST SHIP EVER! (Obviously this review is going to be a big mash-up of praise and love and swoons.)
If you haven’t read this series I have no idea what you are waiting for. Cress will make you swoon, shock you, make you laugh, give you even more answers to what is going on, introduce you to new characters and bring back the best, and give you so many intense feels. You know what is even better? Cress is pretty long at over 500 pages. Sadly, it doesn't even feel that long because it just flies by, but it was nice to get a lot of fantastic time with the lovely characters.
Cress is adorable. She made me laugh and smile and I want her to be my friend. Cinder is really starting to grow on me. I heart Wolf so hard, and I wish I could go into the pages and hug him for so many reasons. The readers also get a little more face time with Kai, which is never a bad thing, and more of the amusing Iko. Now let’s talk about the most important, best ship ever, the one that has me salivating, the one that kills me when I can’t continue reading about them, Cress and Thorne. I loved getting to find out even more about the people who are Thorne and Cress. I really hope they play a huge role in Winter, because I need more. I think Thorne is my new drug.
I don’t know if this even makes sense, but Meyer manages to be an even better story teller the third time around. I was completely immersed in the world she created, there are twists and turns I didn’t expect, (she is sneaky) and most importantly, she makes the characters come alive. I’m not going to go into the plot any further because I refuse to spoil it for you if you have yet to read it.
After reading this review I’m sure you know who I would recommend this book to…EVERYONE. After all of the books in the series are published I plan to buy a gorgeous set of them and put them proudly on my shelf.
