SUMMARY(from Goodreads):
In this stunning bridge book between Cress and Winter in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, Queen Levana’s story is finally told.

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?

Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told . . . until now.

Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes full-color art and an excerpt from Winter, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles series.


Ever since I read CINDER, I have always hated Levana with a burning passion. Because of this, I was extremely hesitant to start this book. It's from Levana's point of view, and I wasn't too sure if I was really going to like it or not.

I should not have been worried; I freaking loved this book. It gave so much background on Levana and how she became so cruel and hideous. Getting to learn about her past was great; and even though I still don't care for her, this book changed the way I view her and how she rules.

In short, this book is a must-read for fans of the Lunar Chronicles series!!

CONTENT: kissing, talk of sex, and a few implied sex scenes. No swearing, and minimal but semi-graphic violence.
