** spoiler alert ** Hmm.. I don't know what to think about this one. I love the series, I love the author, and I love the characters.
I loved how brave and fearless Cinder is. She was inspiring in a sense and entertaining. No.. wait, she was lovable.
I really loved all the characters in the book but I had to address Cinder because the spotlight was mainly on her. The characters are what really kept the book from getting a two-star rating.
Okay. Now the plot, story-line, and overall book.
It was..long. Really long. Unnecessarily long.
There were a lot of moments in the book when I felt like the author extended the book more than it was needed. I'm talking 400 extra pages for nothing
I'm sure I am not the only one that complained about that. And can we just talk about the ending? It was sloppy. Really sloppy. It was nothing compared to Cinder, Scarlet, or Cress.
It was way too simple. And knowing Levana and how she's cruel and evil and stuff didn't make me buy the ending.
And can someone explain that Disney-moment-thing that happened. Cinder leaving Levana alone because Levana said (in a sense) 'sorry,' or something like that. Too cliche.
And please, I don't fully understand the ending. Did Cinder beat her with her glamour or..?
What about Scarlet and Wolf? Cress and Thorne? I know she gave us little snippets of an explanation but.. really?
I don't know, but I am disappointed. The Lunar Chronicles will always be a series I will remember as a 'good' series. Winter was just the only black sheep.
