Winter by Marissa Meyer

A book review by Faith Thompson

 

Cinder and her allies have reached Luna, the one place where Levana’s reign holds full sway and their only shot at stopping her. Her iron fist reaches to the farthest parts of the moon. It will take all of Cinder and the others’ cunning to stop her.

Enter Winter, Levana’s crazy niece. She’s always been the most beautiful girl in Luna, and she achieves it without magic. Levana is threatened by her — and thus wants her dead.

When Levana tells Jacin, Winter’s lover, to kill her to prove his loyalty, Cinder’s path will be set on a crash course with Winter’s. There’s no telling who will walk away from this with benefits, but one thing is certain:

For everyone, there will be a cost.
