800+ pages! Not sure I've read a young adult book this long before. It didn't feel long though. The book is remarkably well paced. While it's broken into a handful of "books", the "books" themselves weren't really defined entities. They felt more like an organizational device to make the book less intimidating to readers not used to such length.

I've enjoyed the whole series. While the first book would have stood alone and the second was primarily Scarlet's story with the occasional jump back to Cinder, the third and fourth books really combine the stories of all the characters introduced so far in their fight against Levana (who is basically, Snow White's evil stepmother trying to conquer Earth).

The books are chock-full of fairy tale references yet they still occasionally managed to surprise me. My favourite character was Cress (Rapunzel), but all four heroines were lovable girls strong in their own ways. (Cress starts off aiming to be a damsel in distress, but grows stronger throughout. Winter isn't traditionally strong - but her refusal to take advantage of her gift despite the mental illness she gets from this refusal definitely shows strength of character. Cinder and Scarlet are more obviously strong female leads. As in many fairy tales, the focus is on the girls moreso than their heroes.)

Highly recommend the whole series.
