In this stunning bridge book between Cress and Winter in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, Queen Levana’s story is finally told.
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?
Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told . . . until now.
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.
Queen Levana wasn't always the queen she is today. She was once a shy and sweet young girl who fell victim to her sister’s (Channery) cruelty and games.
As Princess Levana, she hides behind her glamour to protect herself from further harm. Levana always took her duties seriously unlike her sister Channery who became queen after their parents’ murder.
As queen, Channery became even more cruel, spoiled, and selfish. Levana always seemed the perfect target for Queen Channery. How does Levana become the villain we know in Cinder? Your answers await you in Fairest.
Diving into Queen Levana's past was such a delicious treat for me as reader. I've always wondered about her backstory. I could almost feel sorry for Queen Levana at certain points in the story, but not all of them.
The characters were real, raw, honest, and intriguing. The story took off from first page to last page. I'm even more excited for Winter now.
