Obviously, this is the last book in the series so I am not going to go super in-depth on my analysis this time around. If you would like to read the first book, check out my review of Cinder by clicking here!
Overall, this series is really good. I think it’s a super interesting way to go about a fairytale retelling. It wraps these fairytales into it’s own universe instead of separate entities, which I love. But, without further adieu, let me tell you a little more about Winter.
Princess Winter is admired for her grace, kindness and beauty, despite the scars on her face. She’s said to be even more breath-taking than her stepmother, Queen Levana…
When Winter develops feelings for the handsome palace guard, Jacin, she fears the evil Queen will crush their romance before it has a chance to begin.
But there are stirrings against the Queen across the land. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even find the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.
Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter claim their happily ever afters by defeating Levana once and for all?Winter by Marissa Meyer
Truly, Winter wrapped up this series really well. I enjoyed this all through audiobook, but even then I still think that this was the longest book in the series. But, I think it honestly had to be that long to actually wrap up the story.
As I mentioned previously, these books allow the fairytales to seamlessly work together in this world without forcing too much of the original fairytale onto the story. I think for Winter especially, there was not a lot of the original fairytale present that needed to continuously remind you of the original tale. This author does an amazing job of allowing them to fit into the world and interact with each other while still having their own worlds and thoughts.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and this series as a whole. I am really going to have to look into purchasing these books for myself because I think I will definitely reread them.
Do you have any series suggestions for me? I would love to hear them! Make sure to comment them below!
