Review: Fairest: Levana's Story

Written by Tim - 4.0

"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!
