Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In this final book in the Lunar Chronicles, the stepdaughter of the wicked Queen Levana joins Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress to defeat the Queen and restore Cinder―aka Selene―as the rightful ruler of Luna…Our Snow White stand-in, Winter, is beautiful in spite of facial scars, kind to all she encounters, mentally fragile, and in love with her lowly guard, Jacin…Meyer’s series has sold well and achieved a degree of acclaim. This conclusion’s cinder-block size should only drum up further interest.” Booklist (starred review)
"Reader Soler is one of those magical voice actors who can create a seemingly endless supply of memorable voices. Here, she offers an appropriately sweet, fluttery Snow White-esque voice for Winter; a deliciously purring, cooing "popular mean girl" voice for Queen Levana; a French accent for Jacinl and many, many more. Even background characters who appear for just a line or two get distinctive voices, such as an Australian-accented guest at the wedding banquet. Soler's pacing is excellent, and she skillfully navigates listeners through Meyer's 23-hour story. Publishers Weekly
Narrator Soler returns to deliver an epic performance. She continues to enrapture listeners as she takes on the vocal stylings of 10 main characters and a plethora of secondary voices. She breathes personality into each while maintaining distinctions among the voices with a variety of pitches and accents, including French, Australian, and Irish. Her whimsical portrayal of Winter as seemingly vague and almost fluttery is a perfect contrast to the flawlessly venomous Queen Levana. Solar ramps up the pace to bring listeners to the edge of their seats in a thrilling escape scene and just as expertly slows it down for the romantic interludes. Soler’s narration helps bring this epic series to a wonderfully engaging conclusion. Booklist
“Narrator Rebecca Soler confidently navigates a complicated plot in this final installment of the futuristic Lunar Chronicles series…Soler creates a gentle, high voice for Winter, a reimagined Snow White who is beautiful and kind but suffers from hallucinations brought on by her refusal to use her lunar gift of mind control. Soler’s portrayals distinctly reflect each character—Cinder’s confidence, Levana’s grandiosity, Winter’s quiet strength. Even listeners new to the series will get caught up in this story of jealousy, vengeance, and forgiveness.” AudioFile
