      I really enjoyed this! It was shorter than I expected, and didn't have as strong a story arc as the other books of The Lunar Chronicles, but it was fascinating getting to know Levana's backstory. Seeing things from her POV got me to sympathize with her, but it also made me realize just how twisted she is. She's definitely not a likable character, but I do understand her better now. I also better understand the dynamics between Levana and Cinder and Winter, which was great!I think the best readin [...]

      “She cried for the girl who had never belonged. A girl who tried so hard, harder than anyone else, and still never had anything to show for it.”4 1/2 stars. This is easily my favourite book of the series. Well so far, but I find it hard to imagine that Winter will top this.I enjoyed this book immensely and I had the feeling beforehand that it would be the villain's story that affected me most. There's just something really great about reading the stories behind the villains, finding out why [...]

    • Jesse (JesseTheReader) says:

      this book honestly didn't do much for me, other than confirming how terrible levana is.

      I'll be reviewing this book through Bubbles. See my post here on The Social Potato!

      Buddy read with amazing Tanya (:YES._________________When I decided to read this book, I did it having in mind every other book in this series: funny, compelling and perfectly okay stories. That would explain why I was really not expecting the level of creepiness, weirdness and are-you-fucking-kidding-me-ness this book had to offer.She hated mirrors. Hated their reflections, their truths.Among Meyer's characters, Levana is definelty the most complex one. I could easily describe the evil queen as [...]

      Book 24/100 of 2015WOW SO GOOD! I really shouldn't like nor sympathize with Levana, kind of made me! Wellt exactly like, but definitely understand who she is and why she ended up that way. The pacing was great and I was never bored, which should be expected as it is only 222 pages. I also liked that we got a whole backstory for Cinder and Winter as well! I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL WINTER IS RELEASED

      Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsIt didn't occur to me that some readers might skip this installment of THE LUNAR CHRONICLES, counting it as a novella. Technically, while being a prequel, I think it's still a full-length novel. I don't know the word count, but I did the math (with a calculator, and everything), and even excluding the preview of WINTER that begins at 79%, Levana's story is still over 200 pages.FYI.And regardless, any fan of the series will want to read this book, b/c:1. What does Levana r [...]

    • Hailey (HaileyinBookland) says:

      2.5 ish maybe?Kind of wish I had skipped this one. I wasn't a fan of the back story, it just seemed unoriginal and on top of that there was a scene that made me very uncomfortable because it is essentially in every way rape unless I misunderstood? I don't know. Just not worth the read for me.

    • Jessica says:

      Full Review on YouTube: youtu/RAd1c5jKxA8Yikes. This queen is crayWe all knew that Queen Levana was a bit psycho from reading Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress I never realized how many issues this lady really has. I LOVED this book, just like the other books in the Lunar Chronicles. If you haven't read this series yet, I would suggest that you don't start with this book, however. I know that it's a prequel, but so much information is shared in this book that you don't learn until book three in this se [...]

    • Giselle says:

      Actual rating: 4.5 starsIf you thought Queen Levana was evil before, you will see just how corrupted she really is! I don't often read novellas, but this one is a bit longer than average and completely worth it to be able to see Levana's childhood and how she grew up to be who she is. It also gives us a glimpse at our beloved characters' childhood so we get a real 360 look at what happened in the past. Despite her evil ways and sometimes shocking delusions, Levana's story is just plain sad. This [...]

      "Mirror, mirror on the wall.Who is the most INSANE FUCKING PSYCHO BITCH of them all?" (a direct quote)So, this is basically what happened to me while reading this book:me, before reading fairest: piss off levana god i hate this fucking noodleme, 25 pages in: PROTECT HER!!!!!!!!me, after reading fairest: yeah she can chokei feel like the actual Evil Queen here is Marissa Meyer for putting me through this form of emotional abuse, i hope from the depths of my black sinner heart that she can't sleep [...]

      Mirror, Mirror on the wall ~ Who's the fairest of them all Well, it sure as hell isn't evil Levana! Re-read through audio =) Wow! I can see where Levana turned evil from all she went through from childhood etc. But she didn't have to turn evil, it just takes over if you let it. I see all the reasons she became sad, tired of it all, jealous, whatever you want to call any of it, it's just that I feel she could have become so much more. She seemed to be the happiest when she was the most evil thoug [...]

    • Anne says:

      OMG! Talk about a book that makes you feel (a bit) sorry for the psychotic villain in all the other books!Are you reading the Lunar Chronicles? Yes?Then this is a Must-Read. No, you can't skip it because it's a novellad let me tell you why, ok?First, this sets up EVERYTHING that happens in the rest of the Lunar Chronicles. It's the prequel that doesn't suck. Second, you get to find out about the past that Cinder forgot. You know what I'm talking about, right?No?Then you need to go read the other [...]

    • Bangadybangz says:

      Omg I'm feeling so many emotions right now and it's absurdly late, and I'm just trying to process it all. Wow. That was intense.So I debated whether I was going to give this three stars or four, mostly because this is not a happy read. But then I reminded myself that any piece of writing with can evoke the depth of feeling that this little book did for me is just good writing. So, hence the four stars.I just feel so sorry for everyone in this story! Except for Channary. That hussy is straight up [...]

    • Jasmine says:

      Holy crap.My favorite character in the Luner Chronicles is getting a full length novel all to herself. Nothing but cruel Levanna for 256 pages. And full-coloured art. COLOURED ART, PEOPLE.

    • Cait (Paper Fury) says:

      SO THIS WAS BASICALLY INCREDIBLE. Am I suprised? nope. I've read 3 books by Marissa Meyer and they just get better and better (which is awkward since I rated Cinder 5-stars and all the rest 5-stars soI NEED MORE STARS, CLEARLY). I was so curious about this book because Levana (the villain of the series) didn't have a heck of a lot of development in previous books. She seemed like President Snow from The Hunger Gamesally evil, but distantly so. I wasn't sure if Fairest would make me feel sorry fo [...]

      Love is a conquest. Love is a war.Here is what I think of love.Blurb: Mirror, mirror on the wall,Who is the fairest of them all?Queen Levana is 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. Now this was interesting.As you may or may not, Levana is one of my favorite characters in the Lunar Chronicles series. I just enjoy reading her and [...]

    • Kai says:

      “Levana knew a great deal about beauty, just as she knew a great deal about ugliness.”I liked readingFairestto pass the time waiting for Winter. But I just loved Winter.Marissa Meyer demonstrates again how she can build fantastic worlds and interesting characters from nothing. It was intriguing reading about the Lunar world, especially from the bad guys POV. Even though it did not make Levana more sympathetic. Just more pathetic, naive, self-centered and cruel.The thing is, I did not really [...]

    • Andie says:

      It's official, Levana is bat shit crazy! Off her damn rocker. Needs to be locked up. Insane. Think that about sums it up. I'm actually really torn about how I feel about this book. I went into it thinking I was going to get a backstory and then in turn understand why Levana is the way she is. And while I did get the reasoning behind it I still don't feel she is justified in any way and I absolutely do not feel sorry for her. Instead my heart actually hurts for those who have been so unfortunate [...]

    • Jiana says:

      Honestly, Fairest blew me away.After reading Cress two months ago and getting highly disappointed by it, my excitement for Winter decreased. I wasn't even planning on reading Fairest. However, Cait recommended it to me after I told her I was looking for something short and easy to read and told me it was fantastic. Naturally, after Cress, I was a tad hesitant but I still decided to give it a try. And would you look at that! Blown away!! Prior to starting this, I was aware I'd get to see the exte [...]

    • April (Aprilius Maximus) says:

      I am so sad. This absolutely broke me. I definitely recommend reading this if you love the series because you get such an interesting insight into Levana's character. She is so so so so evil :(

    • Robin (Bridge Four) says:

      Re-reading because I have just enough time to fit in this craziness before Winter Okay.bumped up 1/2 star because it is brilliant even if it is difficult to be in Levana's head for that long. She is BAT-SHIT-CRAZY and I understand how every step and decision she made from the time she was 15 led her to that last cruel step she took and rationalized to herself. She is so broken there is no chance of redemption anywhere.*sobs for Evret*First Read Jan 20153.5 Self Loathing StarsThe best villains ar [...]

    • Kassidy says:

      I found this to be a fascinating look into Queen Levana.

    • Darth J says:

      A Pretty Squicky SituationA prequel to Cinder and the other Lunar Chronicles, Fairest is a tale of extreme narcissism, abuse, and—dare I say it? (view spoiler)[rape (hide spoiler)]. It starts out as a sympathetic tale of Levana who was mistreated by her older sister and lost both of her royal parents to an assassin. The audience is expected to feel for the villain, who was previously cast in a poor light (and lived in her sister’s shadow) until a man catches her eye…She swoops in when Evre [...]

    • P says:

      “Love is a conquest! Love is war!” Watching The Huntsman last month seemingly reminded me of this book. Fairest is a companion novel of The Lunar Chronicles series, and yes, this book is Levana's story. So you can be sure that when you pick this book up, darkness is behind you and prepares to consume you alive.“She cried for the girl who had never belonged. A girl who tried so hard, harder than anyone else, and still never had anything to show for it.” Levana is a multidimensional charac [...]

    • sana°¤° says:

      2 1/2 stars. I hate Levana and I don't care for her at all. However, that is not the cause of my low rating.This novella is about what turned Levana into such a monstrous evil queen. Now I really liked her whole point of view, her thoughts and feelings, but some of the stuff she did was just plain fucking monstrous and no matter what she went through, does not excuse what she fucking did. (view spoiler)[Forcing a man to love her, taking the glamour of his dead wife, manipulating and twisting his [...]

    • Kaylin says:

      4 StarsOverview:“Levana knew a great deal about beauty, just as she knew a great deal about ugliness.” Ooh, this was good. I debated reading this versus skipping straight on to Winter, before deciding to knock out the shorter of the two. And I’m so glad I did!This book was profoundly darker than the rest of the series, and the tone works. As much as I enjoy TLC, I really hope Marissa Meyer writes something darker in the future, because I'd love to see how she handles it with a larger serie [...]

    • Maureen says:

      Blech this book. I'm a sucker for back stories but Levana is just so awful! It was interesting to see what brought her to where she is during Cinder, but by no means did this book make her a better person. Sure, I maybe felt a little sorry for her, but circumstance doesn't make the person - the person does. I'll probably do a full review one of these days but this book was just not that great.Note: the three chapters of winter at the end almost made it worth it. ALMOST. So good.
