There couldn't have been a more perfect ending and Winter couldn't have been any more perfect. Several times in the story I completely related to Scarlet's frustration with Winter, but Jacin would come along and I related to his love for Winter too. It's lovely, everything is just perfect. ( )

This book is far too long for its own good with far too many POV’s. That feeling of continuing to watch a bad movie just because you want to see how it ends had now been reduced to keep reading because of the characters and ship I am invested in. That lasted but 500 pages in, then, after a particular turn of events that trashed my favorite character and consequently, my one OTP, after a skip-ahead to skim through the final chapters, the whole series went into the bin.
I can accept the incredibly cheap OTT plot devise. I can accept how the antagonist is portrayed as a much bigger threat than what they actually are and how laughingly easy it was to defeat them. I can even accept (but barely) the bland Mary-Sue that is Winter and that mental illness is treated as a character flaw. What I cannot tolerate, however, is the poor handling of trauma.

Where the first and even second book of the series did so well in describing the aftermath of involuntarily life-altering changes and the trauma that ensues, in Winter the characters undergo several life-altering physical and emotive traumas, such as emotional abuse and the loss of both loved ones and body parts, that would scar anyone for life and warrant decades of therapy, which is then shrugged off by the author as no big deal, even to the point of where years and years of both physical and mental abuse is being neglected and brushed over, all for the sake of a happily ever after. It all left a sour taste in my mouth and felt both disrespectful to and out of touch with the first two books, as well as highly disrespectful to the characters involved. Everything that made the first two books appealing is shredded – trashed and ruined.

The author retconned a series of irreversible and injurious physical and mental alterations to a certain character, both in appearance and personality, stripping away their humanity and effectively killing off everything that made the character appealing, only to later claim they were still the same, thereby contradicting her own words in earlier chapters, and all for the sake of shoehorning in another, out-of-place fairy-tale reference.

so I started this book almost immediately after I finished the 3rd book, (which I was SO grateful for) and I was surprised at how big and heavy the book was.
but that did not change how amazingly good it was.
this finale to end the series was action packed and emotional, and I couldn't get enough. this is by far one of my all time favourite series of all time and I find myself wondering why it took so long for me to read it, but it must have been fate, because the last book --this book-- just recently came out.
I will maybe read this series again just to be thrilled once more and relieve the awesomeness that it the Lunar Chronicle. ( )

I wanted to love this book and maybe could have, but it ended up taking me almost three weeks to read it. Partly because it was over 800 pages and also partly because I started a new teaching job in a new position so I'm pretty stressed out and the last thing I think to do is pick up the book when I get home from school.

This one was probably the easiest to read as far as writing style goes. I could definitely notice a difference in Marissa Meyer's writing style as this series went along. It became more polished and refined in her word choice and sentence structure.

I also liked seeing the multiple story lines again like we got to see in Cress. I'm glad the story didn't focus as much on Winter as a character (like the other books focused a little more closely on their title's characters did) because I found Winter less interesting as a character compared to the others. Her madness just didn't "do it" for me so to speak. Jacin, her love interest, also didn't really have me hooked. I don't really appreciate weak women "needing" strong men to take care of them. Maybe it's the feminist in me, but Winter's weakness compared to Scarlet's strength infuriated me at times. That said, I had definitely missed hearing from Scarlet's character in the previous book, Cress, so loved seeing her take more of a front seat at certain points in this book. To piggy back off these ideas, the Cress-Thorne shipping kept happening for me in this book... I love Thorne's combination cocky/heart throb roll and Cress' high intelligence. As much as others may not like the Scarlet-Wolf ship, I still greatly enjoyed it. Scarlet doesn't "need" Wolf so much as he needs her and I appreciated that she was strong in ways that Wolf could not be. Yes there are times in all the books where their relationship is a bit problematic, but aren't there issues in every relationship? Maybe not this extreme, (come on it is a fairy tale/fantasy retelling) but a relationship with issues nonetheless.

Lastly, I will say that the climactic fight scene at the end had me going a little crazy. Everyone of our "main" characters enters the throne room to try and help Cinder kill Levana. Okay, fine. But how STUPID are you?! Levana can control just about all of them (all but Cress because she is a shell and hypothetically Cinder because she has strong powers as well). But do any of them think about that?! NO! And, to make everything even better, in a twist of events, Levana is somehow able to control Cinder (even just for a little bit) and Wolf is somehow immune when he clearly wasn't several chapters back. WTF? I realize Thorne didn't have a choice to be there because he had been locked up before and Levana took him out to use as leverage, but all those affected by the Lunar gift should have known better than that! It nearly cost at least two people their lives! In fact, while I was reading it, I had to stop and literally say to myself, "How stupid are they?"

Apart from that flaw, I enjoyed the story, but not enough so to feel like it deserves 5 stars. Had I been able to sit down with less stress in my life to read it, I think I would have appreciated it even more considering how much I enjoyed Cress. I may have to re-read this one in the future when there is less going on to see what I really think about it.

Wow that was a beast of a book. So happy that I can say that I have now completed the series. Loved Jacin & Winter. But my favourite character of the whole series is definitely Iko. She is brilliant can’t wait to dive into wires & nerve. ( )
