Review: I was not really looking forward to Fairest in the least, because I just want to know what will happen in the last book Winter. I mean I can’t stand waiting so long, and then to have Fairest thrown in in the middle just about killed me.
Good thing that Meyer made Fairest so good. It totally flipped how I see Queen Levana, while reading the book and after I feel bad for her at the same time thinking she just might be the most crazy villain in a book I have read yet.
Although at the same time of not liking her, I kind of do now……
I’m not to sure how I feel about Meyer making me that way about a character, but its the first time an author has made me feel like this for a character.
Other than the mixed feeling about Levana, there was a good amount of evil and killing in the plot that had me feeling like I was right there understanding why…. But only because I could see and understand Levana and her reasons till she went off the deep end.
All in all the book was great, I do wish there was more but hopefully we will get more and some answers in Winter that comes out later this year.
4 out of 5 stars.
