Fairest: Levana's Story by Marissa Meyer 6.88   8

In this stunning bridge book between CRESS and WINTER in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, Queen Levana’s story is finally told.

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?
Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told... until now.
Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes full-color art and an excerpt from Winter, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles series.

It was a bit hard to start reading this after all that has happened in the parts 1-3 of Lunar Chronicles. Yet Fairest is an intresting one once you give it chance. It doesn't make you love Levana, but helps you understand her bit better.

"Fairest" was included by Marissa Meyer as being a kind of prequel to the Lunar Chronicles in which we see the young Queen Levana of Luna take form and change her into the being she is in the series. The most interesting - and good - thing about the book is probably the fact that some of the reader's assumptions throughout "Cinder", Scarlet" and "Cress", the most noticeable being the things we hear from Selene's mother. Those things make "Fairest" truly enjoyable. A downside of it is that the novel is only 220 pages thick and I couldn't shake the feeling that Meyer could have taken her time a bit more. Sometimes it goes rather quickly. Another good element, however, is that a lot of the other characters are 'introduced' here - since the action takes place before the other books and a lot of them are recognizable. That's very nicely done and came to me as a surprise. Now we're just waiting for "Winter", of which the first three chapters are already included in this book!
