My Rating:
Goodreads Summary: 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?

My Review

Winter is here. It is finally here! I put this baby on hold at the library months in advance so I would be sure to get the book first. I got it. I read it. I freaking loved it.

I have no idea if this review will be easy to understand or if it will be anything other than me gushing about this series, but I had to write one. I had to fangirl for Cress and Thorne with all the other shippers out there. 

Winter is a long book so it took me almost a week to read. At 827 pages, I am beyond happy to report that there was never a dull moment. Winter is a stunning conclusion to the wonder Lunar Chronicles series. I already want to re-read this series and I plan to as soon as I get these beauties for Christmas. ;)

There are a lot of lovable characters that adorn the pages of Winter. I can't even being to pick a favorite. I loved them all and I loved all the point of views. Even though I usually am not a fan of an abundance of point of views, I adored every single one, and together the main characters make one hell of a team. Winter is kind. Thorne is charming. Jacin is loyal. Cinder is dedicated. Cress is brave. Kai is smart. Iko is unique. Scarlet is fierce. Wolf is strong. As for Levana... she is insane.  As for the ships... I LOVE ALL THE SHIPS!!!!!  I am sure you will be enthralled by these character's story just as I was.

If you have enjoyed the previous books in this series I am sure you will enjoy this one as well. A lot happened in this book. There are ups and downs and lots of close calls. There are even some spectacular fairy tale moments. I can't wait to see what you all think of this one! I am very sad the series is over, but I plan to relive it again and again.


  1. Yay, what an epic sounding ending Kay!! Yay, for being first in line too, lol. I'm always trying to reserve ahead of time because sometimes those list are huge. I have yet to read this series, but have been collecting the for my daughters as well. So here's to shipping and much more :)

    1. OMG, sometimes our list at the library for brand new books can reach 100 people! I think you would like this series a lot!

  2. OHMYGOSH!!! I can't wait to read this!!! What a great review! :)

  3. I loved Winter too! It was seriously just such an amazing series ender <3

    1. Right?! Could it have been more perfect?

  4. So I am not-so-patiently waiting for the audiobook to become available (I have it on hold). I listened to all of the other books in this series and they are really good audiobooks!! (also FYI for your new addiction). Hopefully I won't have to wait much longer because I know I will love it! Thorne <3 <3 <3

    1. Perhaps I shall be doing a reread of this series in audiobook format. ;) Oh Thorne.... <3 You will love it I am sure.
