Winter

Winter *****
by Marissa Meyer

Overview: This is the final book of the Lunar Chronicles series. The first book Cinder was the story of Cinderella. (I also reviewed it on the blog.) Then, each book of the series has added a fairy tale character. So, while each book tells its fairy tale, it is also part of one complete story. This last book is the retold story of Snow White.
Themes: friendship, love, good vs. evil, truth vs. deception
Positive elements: great characters, very well-written, fast paced
Negative elements: war, murder (but nothing graphic) 
Conclusion: This was one of the better books in this series. So refreshing to read a good, clean, love and adventure story. I would recommend it for middle schoolers and up.
