Winter by Marissa Meyer

I cannot tell you how much I looked forward to reading this book! I was so disappointed when FAIREST was snuck in between Cress and Winter. In protest I refused to read FAIREST! As I started WINTER I realized that maybe that wasn't a good idea since there are some things we apparently learn about Levana in FAIREST that are referenced in WINTER. Anyway, on to WINTER...

OH MY GOODNESS!! So much goes on in this book! Everyone comes together on Luna to try and overthrow Levana's reign. So much goodness, so much evil, so much love between characters and so much determination to end Levana's reign of terror and put Luna's rightful queen on the throne.

On Luna you have Winter who is Levana's step-daughter. Winter is a bit broken because she refuses to use her Lunar gift of glamouring herself or manipulating people around her, which has caused her lunar sickness. Jacin is her personal guard and pledged to protect her with his life. Scarlet is currently one of Winter's pets given her by Levana. Trapped in a cage Scarlet waits for the day that Wolf will come and save her.

It is time for Cinder to make her move to take the throne that is rightfully hers. Along with friends Wolf, Cress, Thorne and her trusty companion Iko, Cinder and company manage to gain access to Luna in order to rally the planet for her cause. In the meantime Kai is stuck in the palace preparing to marry Levana in order to save earth and gain the antidote for the Letumosis disease that has ravished earth for years.

Will Cinder and her friends and the citizens of Luna be able to stand against Levana and her Thaumaturges? So many things can go right, but also so many things can go terribly wrong.

I absolutely loved, and hated this book! Hated in a good way! I seriously had to put it down so many times because of all the intense scenes. Battle scenes, kissing scenes, sad scenes, happy scenes. Every emotion was tugged and every nail was bitten off! And talk about an epic read! Good grief! This book had 823 pages in it! Seriously, 823 EPIC pages! I wanted to get through it so quickly, but with that many pages and that much stress while reading it, it seriously took me about 2 weeks to read it. It was so worth reading! I loved how every character in the series was brought into this one final book and how the fairytale theme was wrapped up the way that all fairytales should be wrapped up, "And they all lived happily ever after." THE END!

Oh, and yes, I will be going back and reading FAIREST :)
