To celebrate the release of Stars Above I thought, I would share my thoughts on Fairest by Marissa Meyer which is the story all about Queen Levana.
Fairest by Marissa Meyer
My Rating: 4
Goodreads Rating: 4.03
Published by: Feiwel & Friends
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Science Fiction
This story delves into Queen Levana’s past. We see Levana growing up and becoming the Queen of Lunar.
This book needed to be longer because I got through it so quickly. I sat and read it in one sitting. Levana has always been a character that intrigued me and I’d always wanted to know about her past and why she is like she is. Some terrible things happened to Levana when she was a child, but she chose to be evil. She was so focused on power and she was scared of anything that would take it away that she acted in such an evil way to ensure that she kept her power. I would have liked to have seen more from this story as I love Marissa Meyer’s writing and she usually writes such lengthy novels that I was a bit disappointed by the length of this book. I did find the story really interesting as we got to see more of Levana’s past and get more of an understanding of her character. There was just something missing from this book which is why I gave it 4 stars rather than 5.
