The series is one of the best retellings i have ever stumbled upon. Right from CInder, the series has delivered the perfect read. The Cinder series is unique in the way it balances the original fairy tale that is being retold and combining it with a completely new dystopian story. The balance can’t get better than this. No matter how many times i go through it, i can’t stop being in awe of the author.
Winter by Marissa Meyer – Official Synopsis
Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mark 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? Fans will not want to miss this thrilling conclusion to Marissa Meyer’s national bestselling Lunar Chronicles series.
Winter by Marissa Meyer – RWAT Take
The book Winter is the fourth in the series and is basically the retelling of Snowhite. By the time you reach the fourth you have an army of characters that is coming from the previous book. Perhaps that is also the reason why the fourth book is a bit of task at hand. You have characters from the cinder, scarlet , cress, all revisiting with their backstories. So not only does the book tends to go voluminous but in the middle tends to tire you out by keeping track of so many under layers.
The only trouble with the book is the volume and the way it becomes a bit too much with all the intertwined stories. Apart from that i would always stand by my word that the series is the best and everyone should give it a try because it is simply awesome.
The language is the best with a good narration technique supporting it. Each of the characters is well told and portrayed in the book. You would also appreciate the fact that they author has taken extreme care to not overlap the army of characters. Each one stands unique and strong.
I have always been awe of this series and would always be.
