This "novela" was incredible! It read as a book for me and I definitely did not expect to like it as much as I did. I started it a little while ago and stopped for some time because the beginning was sort of slow. After the first 60 pages, I could not put this book down!
It was an incredible insight on Levan, our antagonist in The Lunar Chronicles. Despite being described as "the story of Queen Levana", it also gave a backstory of Cinder, Cress, and Winter which made it incredibly much better. In this book we get to see how incredibly twisted Levana is and we gain a MUCH better understanding of who she really is. Despite the fact that I pitied her at first, I seriously got to hate Levana. Marissa did an exceptional job in creating the antagonist of her story. Solid 4.5 stars for this. Definitely recommend that any Lunar Chronicles fan read this.
BY FAR my favorite book in the series. Perfect. Just perfect. I could not have asked for a better conclusion to this incredible series. Seriously Marissa Meyer outdid herself with this book. I was concerned at first because this book is 823 pages long, which is pretty intimidating. I have no idea how, but Marissa made every single page incredibly entertaining. I literally had NOT ONE SINGLE MOMENT of boredom while reading this. Definitely 5 stars. Just yes.
