The #1 New York Times Bestselling Series!

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? Fans will not want to miss this thrilling conclusion to Marissa Meyer's national bestselling Lunar Chronicles series.

Marissa Meyer is the USA Today- and New York Times-bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Winter, and Fairest: Levana's Story. She lives in Tacoma, Washington, with her husband.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow White and the moon rebellion This book, at 832 pages, is the longest book I’ve ever read. Marissa Meyer packs so much into her final installation of The Lunar Chronicles, all while framing the story around the fairy tale of Snow White (minus the seven dwarfs). Her multi-dimensional characters achieve so much growth and they develop such strong friendships with each other. There are so many amazing elements to this book that I loved. I also liked that it is the only book to take place largely on the moon. This series contained one of the most intricate and detailed plots I’ve ever encountered and it transcends genre boundaries. It is my absolute favourite book series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+++++ CONCLUSION Its the last book of the series, :( I wish there was more to come but sadly every book/series must have a conclusion, so this is it. The entire series was wonderful, it really got my attention, I was glad that Winter was 800 pages long. Many things happened and I loved all the characters (I thought at first I would only like Cinder but no I liked them all) They all have very interesting personalities, and they were brave. I wish they were real! MUST BUY IT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good as the first I thought this book was awesome. It had so many different story lines to it but they all came together really well. I like the new characters and even came to like some on the characters I wasn't so fond of before. The ending is epic and I loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What an amazing conclusion to one of the best series I've read all year. Thank you so much Marissa Meyer for pulling me to the world of Sci-Fi. I'm so glad that 1 month ago I decided to pick up Cinder. Pick up this book if you love Sci-Fi, romance, dystopian, mystery, and pure brilliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this Series! At the beginning of this book I was scared that there wasn't going to be anymore mention of Cinder and this was a series that didn't connect and was simply a collections of different stories in a similar universe but when they introduce Cinder again I was pumped. I love that this series' main character are bad-ass women that can hold their own without the assistance of a man YET they still realize that sometimes they need the help of others. Their needs to be way more like this especially in a world filled with sexism and feminists extremists. A wonderful take on classic fairy tails and their worlds colliding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfying Conclusion To The Series Winter is probably my least favorite of all the "princesses" in this series, but I'm still giving this book four out of five stars because of the adventures of the other characters alone. I loved the revolution of Cinder taking back her kingdom, which is a huge change from the girl who claimed to want nothing to do with the throne, and many other character developments that took place in this book. Honestly, I would have enjoyed it more without Winter even being there, but it was still a satisfying conclusion to the series. I think Meyer ended it perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Winter by Marissa Meyer was the perfect end of The Lunar Chronicles. As much as we alway expect the heroes to win, and I definitely did, there were so many times I was unsure of the heroes winning. That is the true mark of a brilliant writer: to create honest stakes that have the readers' pulse quickening in fear and hopes of the heroes winning. I adored Winter. I may be inclined to say this since I have yet to read any other Snow White retelling, but I do believe that Winter is one of the best, if not the best, Snow White I have ever known.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Was Almost Perfect This was a good ending to a series that has so brilliantly reimagined some of the most classic fairytales. However, what kept me from fully enjoying it was the number of characters to follow reached a Game of Thrones level, with ten different people's perspectives. It was difficult to follow at times because you couldn't remember what a certain character had been doing or where they were at times. It was also about 300 pages too long. She could have wrapped it up a bit faster, but overall it was a fitting ending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long but Worth It I love how everything played out and how Winter was the one to help Cinder gain support rather than Cinder being automatically loved among the Lunar people.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Satisfying, if Long-Winded At a staggering 800+ pages, Winter delivers on a lot of things: strong, independent heroines. Slow-burning romances. Plot twists. An unreliable antagonist. Unexpected heroes. But where it falters is in scope, with pacing being problematic at best and downright unreadable at worst. Our favourite heroines, Cinder, Scarlet and Cress are back, along with their respective love interests Kai, Wolf and Thorne. Add Winter and her love interest Jacin into the mix and that’s 8 different potential PoVs before we’ve even considered the antagonists; this is where Winter dragged the most. PACING There were so many storylines, but many of them felt unnecessary. I also felt like I was stuck in a loop. “Hero[ine] is separated from love interest. Angst over separation. A reunion! Bah! Separated again.” Wash, rinse, repeat. This is where I really noticed the pacing issues. Any fear I had for the captured hero[ine], any tension created by their imprisonment, was quickly vanquished with the promise of yet another rescue. This had me flipping forward, skimming for the next twist, in order to encourage myself to keep reading. So imagine my surprise when a little over halfway through, Cinder is already confronting the evil Queen Levana. If they’re already encountering each other, if I’m about to read the final showdown, what are the remaining 300+ pages for? CHARACTERS Pacing aside, I also had a hard time truly warming to Winter [the character] – pun not intended. She had her own kind of strength. It served to separate her from the other heroines of the series, but I felt like she had the least growth. The constant reminders of her beauty grew tiresome, and the side effects of her Lunar Sickness made it feel like Meyer was just looking for an excuse to write nonsensical prose. I was also really hoping to see Winter fully exercise her powers. I wanted her to realize that saving her friends and her kingdom was worth the risk. Alas, both when she chose to use them, and the repercussions of her choice, were disappointing. OVERALL Pacing issues and Winter’s eccentricities aside, I still found myself unable to put Winter down. When the storyline was actually advancing the plot, I was sucked into the heightened tensions of war and the anticipation of an attack on Luna. Some of the tender (and not-so-tender) moments between Scarlet and Wolf, and Cress and Thorne, had my pulse-racing. And after four books, it was comforting to have a decisive ending to everyone’s stories. A satisfying conclusion to an otherwise fantastic series, but a little long-winded for my liking. 3.5 Stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An exciting and satisfying conclusion I really admire this book for being able to handle so many main characters, giving readers enough time with all of them so that each one feels fully realized. I ended up caring about all of them, even those I never thought I would (*cough*cough* Jacin), which meant that I was so invested in their future that I just had to keep reading. The almost non-stop action also contributed to my inability to put the book down. Meyer pulls out all the stops in this one - and it is thrilling!
Date published: 2017-02-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is totally how the finale book in a series should end! I liked how even though the whole gang was separated, they focused on their missions and got the job done. I think in the end, Scarlet & Wolf might be my all-time favourite couple and then Winter & Jacin and then Thorne & Cress. Kai & Cinder's relationship felt a little weak compared to the others but overall I really liked all the characters. :) Iko was hilarious as always and I'd totally want an android like her around. xD

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Such A Good Ending Probably the best ending to a series I've ever read. Tied up everything nicely. I was initially worried about how many characters were in this book and how it would affect the cohesiveness of the plot. But it turns out, I had nothing to fear. All nine of the main characters had room to shine and it managed to not feel messy or overcrowded. Plus, the ending was so great. A really well done ending for a great series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO GOOD Oh my goodness. I went into this with a healthy grasp on my nail-biting habit - I came out of it with no fingernails to speak of. This book was everything a finale should be. For those of you new to the magic that is the Lunar Chronicles, let me explain: I've followed this series since it first came out, four years ago. I have fallen in love with each and every character that has come along with each new addition to the series. By this point, going into this massive brick of a finale, I am deeply invested in the fates of not one, but four amazing heroines and their love interests - particularly Kai. This was my most anticipated book of the year and it had a nearly ridiculous amount of my hopes riding on it. And yet, even with all of that pressure, it did not disappoint. I'm not going to go into spoilers, but I think I can safely say that this series is magical. It has a certain quality about it, an ability to enchant and ensnare, that literally kept me reading 800+ pages in one sitting. Even with terrible stakes, I don't think I've ever been as satisfied with a happily ever after. There was no cop outs, or forgotten plot holes, or gratuitous angst. I loved every page, basically. My favorite thing about the series is the heroines. Each one is so different and varied and strong in her own right that I think I'm just in love with all of them. Cinder has been my favorite from the first. She's just so strong, and determined, and kind, and flawed, and practical. She knows how to get things done and so she just gets things done. She's funny and human and powerful and weak and loves her friends. Her and Kai's relationship was finally just solid and they both could get on with what needed doing without worrying about where they stood with each other. I just wanted to give her a great big old hug. With Scarlet, it's been almost three years since I read her book, and due to circumstances in Cress we didn't get to see a lot of her spark and drive. I'd forgotten how much I loved her, and in this book, when she's finally set loose on the unsuspecting Lunars, I was reminded of just how awesome she is. She has a cool factor that's extremely appealing, and yet she's still kind and nurturing in her own kickbutt way. There were so many moments in here where I just needed to whisper "you go, Scarlet" under my breath, because wow. I love her. Cress didn't get as much character development as in the book that has her name, which is understandable, and yet I still really, really love her. She's adorable and capable and a damsel in distress and funny and her relationship with Thorne was the best. I just really, really love her. Meyer did a really dangerous thing with Winter, which was that she created this character who's breathtakingly beautiful, kind, beloved, sweet, and practically flawless, and put her in the position of a victim or damsel. Basically, she could have ended up super flat, and yet she was just as nuanced and human as all the other girls. I loved getting in her head and seeing her point of view, and I loved the way she was treated and valued by Jacin. Basically, I just loved her. Although, let's be completely honest; Cinder is my favorite, and she owned this book. If I though about it some more, I could probably come up with a criticism or two, but right now I'm just riding the high of having had a fresh dose of Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter, and of having had all of my hopes, dreams, and expectations fulfilled. Well done, Meyer. This was beautiful.

I really loved the introduction of Winter, for she is an interesting chararacter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was ok The whole series pretty cool since it connected fairytales to the future, but there were parts that didn't really make sense. SPOILER: Like yeah, Cinder was powerful, but she shouldn't have been able to beat Levana with her hundreds of years of practice especially since Cinder only had a few months of practice. No matter how powerful she was genetically, she shouldn't have been able to defeat that many years of practice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Glad to be done with this series Man, oh man. I don't actually know where to start when it comes to this book (and the series). I'll just start with a brief overview of my thoughts of the series in general. LOVED the first two novels of the series, and really struggled with the final two books in the series. When I first delved into this series, I was fascinated how Marissa Meyer changed these classic fairy tales into stories that were unique, fantastical, magical. Even now after completing the whole series (and disliking the final two books) I am still impressed with how Marissa Meyer made these characters and these stories her own. None of these books read like a typical retelling of the same old classic. No, no, this world was incredible. Now, I have to unfortunately have to get into the faults that I found with this novel. First, I found I quickly lost interest. As in, 100 pages in and I realized how long this 800 page book was going to feel. Luckily, I did become interested with various exciting events going on but I found throughout the whole book it was like waves. I would either be totally focused, really entertained and enthralled, or totally bored and essentially skim reading. It got to the point that it felt like reading this book was a chore yet I wouldn't leave it unfinished. All of the characters I loved but at the same time I don't really feel that it was necessary to have all of the characters coupled off into a romance. But with that being said, I also am happy with how each character ended up. I thought the ending was a good closure for the saga but at the same time left opportunity for the author to continue on if she would like. I will read more from Marissa Meyer because when it came to her characters, the plot, her style of writing, and creativity, I really really appreciated her work in this series. But for some unfortunate reason with the last two books, I just was not as invested. Maybe it was the length of them both, maybe it was the moments of inactivity, I'm not totally sure. But I am hopeful for what I read by her in the future.
Date published: 2016-12-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great end to the series It was a fun read. I found this book obviously lengthier than the others. The only reason I give this 4 stars rather than 5 stars is due to the fact that it was a little too descriptive in some parts of the writing. It would switch back and forth between quick paced and then drawn out. Some people enjoy that, but the suspense made it gruelling to get through. I skimmed those part and I did not miss out on any of the story. Other than that thoroughly enjoyed the stories and the way they reflect the original fairytales while putting their own twists. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great conclusion Action-packed from start to finish, and ultimately a great end to a great series. Winter is a wonderful heroine, and I loved how the book balanced all the different stories it was trying to tell. There were lots and ups and downs for the characters throughout a thrilling revolution, and I was really satisfied by the end of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Finale This series was an absolute thrill ride, with twists and turns unexpected! The final story is not one to miss out on. Winter is an excellent twist on Snow White and her story along with other characters and the villain end in a fantastic (or not so fantastic) way. These may be retellings and therefore end in a happily ever after but the road to HEA is not an easy one. Battles are fought, some are won and many are lost. But in order to find out what truly happens, you have to read it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this!!!!! Okay so I stayed up until 4 in the morning to finish this. This book was an amazing way to end this four book series! It was 800 pages so I have to admit that some parts weren't as intriguing as other parts but it was awesome! The way Marissa Meyer tied it together at the end was beautiful! I especially liked the character development. In the first book, the characters were just normal, living(almost) normal lives. In this book the characters were almost superheroes. I really enjoyed this finale and if you have not yet picked up this series pick it up now! This is definitely a 5 out of 5 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't put it down I finished this in 2 days (given that I was also trying to study for exams at the same time). I just COULD NOT put it down. I am a sucker for fairytales! I love how Meyer adds in more and more prospectives and intertwines the lives of the main characters with every book. Absolutely adore the little quotes or blurbs in-between chapters. Although this series gives an intergalactic, sci-fi/futuristic twist to the fairytales it's based off of, it doesn't fail to include important details like Snow White eating a poisoned apple and Cinderella's lost glass slipper. (I'm not going to spoil how Meyer meticulously twisted and changed the details of these scenes; they are VERY fitting in the story too) Very satisfying, though I am sad that this is the conclusion already!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packed with action, emotion and adventure – I loved every page. I was waiting eagerly for the final installment in the Lunar Chronicles. I had read Book 1 in the series with trepidation because fractured fairy tales have, in my own opinion, been a bit overdone as of late. But, if you read that previous review you will remember this, I was quickly hooked on the series as it was something I was not expecting at all. The final book in the series did not disappointed. Packed with action, emotion and adventure – I loved every page. As was the case with the former books in the series, Meyer takes the reader on a spellbinding adventure. All of our favourite characters are included and by the end of the book, each character’s tale has been spun to an ending (no spoilers on whether those are happy endings or not). What I really enjoy about Meyer’s writing is the level of detail that comes with it. She truly creates a world that draws the reader in. And her character development is envious. Each character in the series (even evil Levana) are painted with a fullness and depth that few books in this genre can achieve. This series will stay on my favourites list for a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an amazing conclusion to an amazing story! Even though Chapters took a week to deliver my pre-ordered book (grrr) it was defiantly worth the wait! This book is amazing, the plot unpredictable and entertaining, the characters loveable and relatable, and the ending is fulfilling. The only thing I'm sad about is that this is the last book in the series. I'm praying that Marissa Meyer's new series “Heartless” is just as good! But when you have an amazing author whose writing skill are out of this world, how could you not?!

Editorial Reviews

"In this final book in the Lunar Chronicles, the stepdaughter of the wicked Queen Levana joins Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress to defeat the Queen and restore Cinder-aka Selene-as the rightful ruler of Luna. Yes, it's another one of Meyer's very fractured fairy tales, in which she offers a new amalgam of Grimm's fairy tales, science fiction, violence, women's lib, and romance. Our Snow White stand-in, Winter, is beautiful in spite of facial scars, kind to all she encounters, mentally fragile, and in love with her lowly guard, Jacin . . . Meyer's series has sold well and achieved a degree of acclaim. This conclusion's cinder-block size should only drum up further interest." -Booklist, starred review
