Expected Release Date: November 10, 2015
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?
Winter is the 4th installment in the Lunar Chronicles. This series is not merely a retelling of familiar fairy-tales, but it's an integration of them within a futuristic, science-fiction format.
I didn't expect to love this series so much, but I find it so inventive, romantic, and frankly enthralling!! I feel like they've set Winter (i.e. Snow White) up to be a bit of a delicate flower, but I'm pretty sure she's going to kick some serious ass and lay down the law. And I'm going to love every minute of it.
We've been waiting almost 2 years for this finale! I even broke my "no 0.5, 3.7 novella/ short story thingys" and bought Fairest (Lunar Chronicles 3.5) which gives some backstory for the evil Queen Levana. It sort of tided me over, but it was like Lunar Chronicles "Light" and I'm waiting for the real thing.
