Teaser Tuesday: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"Is the princess afraid of fire?" asked the Illusionist. Though he didn't stop the illusion, the dancers did stop jumping, instead content to swirl slowly upon each candlewick. "I apologize, Your Highness. I did not know."
This week my teaser comes from Fairest by Marissa Meyer. I have been in love with this series since I read Cinder and am eager to learn Levana's story. Here is the description from Amazon:
Mirror, mirror, on the wall.
Who is the Fairest of them all?

Pure evil has a name, hides behind a mask of deceit, and uses her "glamour" to gain power. But who is Queen Levana? Long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress in The Lunar Chronicles, Levana lived a very different story--a story that has never been told . . . until now.

New York Times -bestselling author Marissa Meyer reveals the story behind her fascinating villain in Fairest, an unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes a special full-color image of Levana's castle and an excerpt from Winter, the exciting conclusion to The Lunar Chronicles.


  1. I thought this was an interesting novella and I liked seeing why Levana is so evil. :)


  2. Would like to know more about Queen Levana.

  3. I've been meaning to read this series.

  4. This sounds like a series that should be read in sequence. I'm curious about Queen Levana.
    My Tuesday post features THE LAND OF MANGO SUNSETS.

  5. Nice! I did really enjoying this one! I got a better understanding of Levana, but man do I still loathe her! LOL!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
