This is the satisfying conclusion to a well-written sci-fi tale spanning 4 books, with hints to well-known fairy tales (Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Snow White). Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Winter and their allies & nemeses of Earth & Luna are all well-defined, fun characters. I wasn't going to read the optional book, Stars Above; but the interview between author & narrator at the end of this book intrigued me to hear more about the characters. I have to admit that this book was too long, and I skipped the middle 4 of the 19 CDs. Too many side stories made me impatient to move on. Even so, I highly recommend this story and not only for teens. It's also great for adults who prefer PG/PG-13 stories, leaving out unnecessary trash. As a bonus, the author has a website with links to amusing & well-done fan art. She said some are spot-on as to how she imagined the characters. On to "Stars Above!" There is more to learn from this powerful tale.

Maybe a different format might work for me. Who knows? For now though, Winter goes to the back burner (again) indefinitely.
