SUMMARY (from Goodreads):

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?

A farewell letter to the Lunar Chronicles:

I will miss you dearly. Each book in the series has been better than the last, and I have fallen in love with the way all of the different fairytales were weaved together. It is rare in today's books that you find a story so unique; I can say, with certainty, that I will never read another series like you again.

I have fallen in love with all of your characters. Cinder is such a great female lead; Kai is extremely swoon-worthy; Scarlet is sassy, independent, and no-nonsense, which is everything I love in a female character; Wolf is so rough and tough, but so sweet and gentle at the same time; Cress is absolutely adorable; Thorne is sassy and hilarious and loyal and attractive and sooooo swoon-worthy (he is my favorite character, if you could not tell); Jacin is everything any girl would want in a boyfriend; and Winter is crazy, but completely endearing. She will win your heart in no time. They are the things that I will miss the most from this series.

And I will not forget to mention, that your ending was one of the best series endings I have ever read. It was suspenseful, intriguing, and wrapped everything up perfectly. It left me completely satisfied.

Also, a thank you to Marissa Meyer, for creating such an amazing series. Your imagination and ability to weave all of the different fairytales together is unparalleled; I loved it so much! I cannot wait to see what you write next.

Lastly, to all the other readers out there who have not read this series: do so as soon as possible. You will not regret it!

CONTENT: Kissing, and lots more violence than the first few books.
