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 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.
I really, really liked this book, but I had a few problems as well. The first one is that there were way too many pov's. I could have lived with that if there were only four pov's, but there were even more. I loved the Winter and Jacin parts and wish there were only those pov's, but that would have been impossible with the storyline, so I understand it. But more than four just made it confusing cometimes.
The other thing that bothered me is that is was way too long. I don't mind big books (my edition has 823 pages) but it was just dragged out way too much. More than 200 pages shorter would have been fine as well.
Because of those two reasons I can't give this book 5 stars, but I still really liked it and in total this may be one of my all time favorite series, so I highly recommend all the books. This series is so unique, but still predictable (because of the fairy tale stories). I love the feminism aspects of this series as well and in this book/series there was also the dystopian feeling to it and y'all know how much I love (that might be the wrong word haha) dystopian stories. If I had to choose my favorite book in this series, I'd choose Cinder. That's an unpopular opinion, I know but I really, really love that book.
What is your opinion about WInter? What is your favorite book in this series?
