Fantasy Sci-Fi Fairy Tale Retelling/©2015/222 Pages/Recommended for Age 12+

Publisher’s Synopsis (Courtesy of Good Reads):

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:

This prequel to The Lunar Chroncles gives us the complete backstory to the villain of the series. Let it suffice to say that the story is chilling! This is a quick read, but it definitely fills in the blanks about Queen Levana. Should be quite interesting to see how the series winds up when the fourth and final book is released in November.
