My Review

Well . . . as much as I hate saying this . . . The Lunar Chronicles has FINALLY come to an END. And what an ending that was! This saga has fair exceeded my expectations. From the feels and thrills, to the creative retellings and the action; what a ride it's been. Winter was amazing! I loved how Marissa found yet another way to add two more perspectives to this series, what is it like . . . maybe ten major characters POVs, and even some more with minors characters as well? I've lost count. But even with the jumping around, Marissa has truly out-done herself. Seeing this world Marissa has created through Winter's eyes added a unique dynamic to Winter  altogether. I also loved Jacin as a character, I shipped him and Winter way back in Cress when readers first met him. Didn't we all?!?! I also enjoyed reading about; Cinder, Kai, Scarlet, Wolf, Cress, and last but not lest Throne, again. Man I love how different and unique all their perspectives are, and how incredible this "band of misfits" is. All in all, Winter was a epic ending to an epic series. I promise you; you won't be disappointed with this one. Marissa delivers. And I couldn't be more content with an ending like that, and I hope you are too.
