Review: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Reviewer: Kayla
Author: Marissa Meyer
Pages: 222
Format: Hardcover
My Rating: 10/10

Summary (thanks Goodreads):
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.

My Thoughts:
I understand this novella was supposed to give us a glimpse into Levana's life and why she behaves the way she does and her backstory, and let me just say it really did, and it really made me hate her even more!
Levana is a terrible villain, and I hated her from the first book, so basically she is doing it right. Her manipulation and insanity is extremely portrayed in this book, and it is clear she really did not have a chance to do anything positive with her life. Experiencing her life and her sister's wrath and everything she's done and been through makes her character all the more complex and intriguing, but still the more hateful. Levana is insane and corrupted. People have been under her control for years, and she justifies everything she does. The way she twists what people says in her mind is completely deranged and she's ruined so many lives!. She just wants everything and will accept nothing less and will go at any lengths to get it. She is literally crazy. Literally batshit crazy. And I loved it. We finally understand why she hides behind a glamour all the time and why she does things the way she does!
I completely fell in love with Winter and Evret, and I cannot WAIT for the final book to come out this year!

Final Thoughts:
Amazing novella and highly recommend if you are a fan of the series. Also DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU HAVE READ CINDER, SCARLET, AND CRESS. THERE ARE SPOILERS IN THE NOVELLA

ok thanks bye.
