Review: Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5)

Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5)Fairest by Marissa Meyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Marissa Meyer managed to deliver a clever and heart breaking back story that expertly sets the premises for Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter (to come). This is basically the story of how Queen Levana went from a perfectly "normal" girl to an extremely evil and cold-hearted antagonist.

I empathized with Levana even though I despised her at the same time. It caught me by surprise. All the wrong that was done to her, explained her twisted way of seeing the world without becoming a justification.

My knowledge of the Lunar Chronicles only goes as far as Scarlet because I'm waiting on Winter. However, I enjoyed learning so much about Luna, the economy, politics, and culture. I did wish more was said about the fallout between Earth and Luna, but it wasn't a deal breaker.

I loved the author's writing. She made me forget I was reading because the narration was so engrossing.

I highly recommend this book to readers who have been on the fence about reading the series. It will satisfy their curiosity without ruining any of the books already published.
