Review of Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Title:  Fairest
Author: Marissa Meyer 
Source: Borrowed from the library
Series: Yes
Rating: 4/5

Goodreads Summary:
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. 

This review  contain spoilers if you have not read the Lunar chronicles or this novel. 

Meyer is showing us how Queen Levana became the queen and why she uses glamour. I felt a little sympathetic for Levana, but then her horribleness starts to show itself again. She starts using her persuasion on people at a young age to get what she wants and her sister is not much better.

We see briefly Winter and Cinder as children playing together and find out how Levana came to have Winter as a daughter and what led up to Levana trying to murder Cinder. Levana's sister clearly is also off her rocker, and her making fun of her sister and not allowing Evret to leave with Winter. Ugh. 

Conclusion is Levana is evil and even though she had a terrible childhood I think even if she had a loving childhood she would still be a crazy queen. She forced Evret to marry her and stay with her because she could not stand that he did not love her. Poor Evret. 

This is is a must read for fans even thought I wanted Winter to be out right now so I know how it will all end. I need to so badly.
