Fairest - Marissa Meyer 3.5/5 stars

This book was short, so it was naturally very fast-paced. It was interesting to see Levana's past, as it shaped her to be the queen she is in the Lunar Chronicles. After reading the book, I can see why some people would be sympathetic towards Levana. By learning about her past, you start to understand Levana's character and actions.

I also liked how we got to see more of Levana's relationship with both Selene and Winter. It was nice to understand more about the dynamic of their relationship, as it wasn't conveyed in the other books.

Although this book was an interesting and quick read, I gave it 3.5 stars because Luna was underdeveloped. I was looking forward to learning more about Luna's society and features, yet I was thoroughly disappointed. The setting was hardly described, and frankly, I didn't learn much about Luna.

If you've read the Lunar Chronicles, you should definitely check this book out. It's interesting to read from Levana's point of view, and this book will keep you satisfied until Winter's release. November 10th please come sooner.
