Fairest: Levana’s Story (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5) by Marissa Meyer
AKA How to Make a Bad Guy…
For fans of the Lunar Chronicles, Fairest is a must read. This is some seriously great backstory on Lavana, the creepy Lunar Queen.
Turns out she never had a chance to be anything but rotten.
Sympathy? A bit. Do I hope she gets hers? Oh yes. And I hope Cinder and Winter get to give it to her together.
Winter was the true beneficiary of this backstory–which was certainly the goal with Winter, the final book of the Lunar Chronicles, out in September. We already know Cinder, but Winter was a bit of a mystery. Cinder was lucky, she was able to escape Lavana. Poor Winter was raised by the crazy woman!
Now, if you’re not a fan of the Lunar Chronicles, it’s because you haven’t read them yet. I recommend you fix that immediately. This is a really fun ride!
