Winter is the fourth and final book in the Lunar Chronicles. I really wanted to love Winter but I had some problems with it.

Cinder continues to remain an awesome character who has grown a lot from the shy insecure cyborg. Her growth seems natural and while she does have setbacks I love how she remains true to herself. Despite immense pressure on her to save Lunar from Queen Levanna Cinder continues to be an easy going person who does not dream of power.

Scarlet was not around in Winter as much as I would have liked, she was my favorite character. I did not really see much change in Scarlet overall, I could be forgetting some stuff since it has been awhile since I read the first three books.

Cress is adorable and her insecurities make sense. Having been imprisoned on a satellite for most of her life it is understandable she lacks social grace. Instead of her just suddenly developing social abilities Cress remains a lot like how she was with small bursts of courage that make her personality show up.

I wanted more Winter, I expected Winter to be primarily about Winter. I do not feel like I really got to know Princess Winter so that was disappointing for me.

Winter is a hefty book and at times it felt super repetitive. I kept flipping through the pages to make sure I had not read something already. Nor was I a huge fan of the ending overall. I wanted something more from it like an epilogue. While the writing was nice it did seem to repeat itself at times. All in all I enjoyed the Lunar Chronicles.
