Fairest By: Marissa Meyer
This is the story of the evil queen Levana, and tells how she became who she is. Levana did not have an easy life, her parents were killed, she had a sister that was not kind to her, she suffered a terrible accident that left her disfigured, and she fell in love with a palace guard that did not love her back. She spent so much time in this book trying to make the guard, Evret, love her and accept her. She tricks him in to marrying him, while she uses her glamour to be his dead wife, and tries to raise his daughter. Then when her sister dies, and leaves baby Selene, Levana tries to come up with a plan to rid of her.
This book was depressing. Levana is such a sad person,she tries so hard to make others love her, but goes about that in all the wrong ways. It makes complete sense why she is the evil person she is, but the lengths she goes to better herself are awful. I enjoyed learning about her, and her past, and think that it makes a great addition to the series.
