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.

Also by this author: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Winter, Heartless

It was interesting to understand a bit more of why Queen Levana has become the evil character she is now.

What I thought of this book.

In Fairest you get to know what happened to Levana when she was younger, how she was burned and disfigured. How her sister treated her so poorly. How she manipulated people, how she plotted to become Queen.

I always find it interesting to know the mind of a villain so I thought it was pretty interesting. You sort of want to feel sorry for her but at the same time she is so evil that you really don’t feel sorry for her. I do feel sorry for poor Everett Hail and Winter!

This novella feels in a few gabs of what happened to Cinder as a child and I learned a bit about who Winter was as I don’t know if she is mentioned in book 3 because I haven’t read Cress yet.

I would give this novella a chance as it is informative.

The Narrator:

Rebecca Soler as always does a great job with this novella. She has done a great job with this series.

    I’m really wanting to read this series but that TBR pile is scary! My library has these in audio so I’m thinking about going that route. I’m glad to hear you liked the narrator. This sounds like an interesting addition to the series. I like seeing the villain’s point of view!
