Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.
Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend—the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.
Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?
Saw this in a weekly book-news email and couldn’t resist. Calvin and Hobbes has my heart. Published just over a week ago, this book is about a schizophrenic teen who thinks he can be cured if Bill Watterson makes one more C & H comic strip. (I think the world would certainly be a better place if there were one more C & H comic strip, so that’s a cause I can get behind.) Never read anything by Leavitt, but I’m stoked to read this.
Yes! The designer I’ve obsessed over has illustrated and written a fable. I’ve thumbed through the pages, and it looks even more gorgeous than Bickford-Smith’s other work, plus I just love the simplicity of fables. I can tell even just looking at the cover that I’m going to enjoy this one.
