Book Review: Winter

 Summary: 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?

Thoughts: Oh my goodness! I love Winter, both the book and the character! This has to be my favorite from the series which is a good indication, since it's the last and the last should (almost) always be the best! 
 The plot comes to a crescendo and keeps the reader clutching the book and  breathlessly reading even when they should be hurrying off to work...ahem, or something like know, intensive reading.
 The characters? Well, aside from the fabulous returning crew there were the new characters and it says something when characters can enter the end of a series and be your favorites while you still love the main cast. And yeah, no spoilers but Jacin and Winter and my favorite characters.
 The writing is great. I love the way each person is depicted and the way we see all of their thoughts. It could have been set in multiple first-person points of view and carried the same close feel that Meyer created. The way she writes though, creates plenty of opportunity to switch views and take in as much as possible, transporting the reader to each and every adventure as it occurs with a smooth transition. 

Content: A bit of language, mostly just D*** and some passionate kisses. Two scenes where couples are laying in bed one together, one of which was starting to get a little worrying but nothing more than kissing ever actually happened.Violence and gore and several mature themes.
All in all still a clean YA series that is also great!
