I think I found Winter to have the least amount of fairy tale similarities than all the other books. Probably since it’s the last book there were so many other things the author needed to write and they had to be done a certain way. Either waym I loved the book but here are the similarities I did notice. Also there might be spoilers here (not very big ones) but if you don’t want to know anything that happens then stop reading.
- Levana is jealous of Winter’s beauty and orders her step-daughter to be killed.
- Winter isn’t actually killed and is hidden away in a small house similar to a cottage.
- Levana disguises herself as an old hag and gives Winter a “poisonous” apple.
- Winter is placed in a glass coffin of sorts where everyone can see her.
- Winter kind of has 7 dwaves. (Cinder, Scarlet, Wolf, Thorne, Cress, Kai, Iko)
That’s all I could find! If you noticed any others, let me know in the comments below!
