Fairest: A Good Read

Fairest: Levana's Story (The Lunar Chronicles)Fairest: Levana’s Story by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fairest, the next installment in The Lunar Chronicals delves deep into the backstory of Levana and the royal family of Luna. Meyer develops Levana’s tragic life in such a way that I was sympathetic to her plight. Her evil rule is well established throughout the series so this installment is somewhat predictable in that Levana would always make the bad choice when life gave her the option between good and evil.

Fairest does step away from the story line of the three previous books which I found a little distracting. I wanted the story rather than the history, yet it is a really good read. Lots of tension to keep the pages turning. Once I started I couldn’t put it down.

I wonder, does Winter (the final installment in The Lunar Chronicles) need Fairest to bring Cinder’s adventure to a conclusion? I look forward to finding out!
