Winter by Marissa Meyer

Winter.LunarChronicles.MarissaMeyerTypically, when I have to wait for a long while between books in a series, I lose interest and drop it. But I am glad that I powered through to finish Meyer’s Lunar Chronicals (minus Fairest, which is still on my list). With this last book, it became very clear that Meyer had a solid, entertaining, and engaging story arc for the entire series, right from the first chapter of Cinder, and I really appreciate her efforts to (and successes in) reimagine these classic fairy tale waifs (Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Snow White) as strong, capable, heroic leading women. The entire cast of characters, actually, is very well drawn. Not a two-dimensional character in sight.

As Thorne would say, this series is aces. Loved everything about it (except the cover art).

No. 15 on my challenge—best to get the longest book out of the way first.

Love how she kept Cinder’s story going while focussing on a whole new set of characters. Red Riding Hood is bad ass.

Kendra wrote a review for this one, too.
