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.
-- Goodreads.com description --
The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favourite young adult series. So, I was very excited to read Fairest, which is a novella situated after the third book and before the last one. Since I loved the previous books, I couldn't help feeling disappointed by the newest addition to the series. It's not like I hated it, but I didn't love it either. I actually couldn't care less. There was new information about Levana's past and that is kind of all of it. I don't really believe you need to read this if you want to read Winter but since the last book isn't out yet I have no right to say that. In the end, I gave this novella 3 out of 5 stars, because, let's face it, I couldn't care less about Levana. The book wasn't even interesting.
