Winter -  

Here is the Goodreads synopsis:
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?
My Thoughts:
**Any book review will most likely contain spoilers**
This was a good finish to the Lunar Chronicles. I do really enjoy reading the different perspectives in this book and I feel if we did not get to see the different sides, it would not be as entertaining and confusing in regard to the other things going on with the different characters. However, compared to the other books in the series this book felt a little more jumpy in the way of transitions. I love Thorne’s wit; him and Iko are fun characters. I loved them in situations that really should not have had humor, like when people lives were in danger including their own at times.
Reading this made me really want to read Fairest, and I wish I had read it first. I really feel reading Levana's perspective would enhance the story, helping to understand why Levana is the way she is. We did get a little sample of that towards the end of Winter. The ending was good but it left a little to be desired, each relationship was resolved in a way but I felt each needed more. The conclusion just needed something more.
Overall, I enjoyed this series and I would definitely recommend this. Reading the synopsis for the first book Cinder had me slightly unsure about the series. The droid/cyborg aspect of the story was what was holding me back, but I am glad I gave it a chance.
