In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they're plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.
Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she's just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.
When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.
You guys are probably tired of reading Cress reviews by now. I’ll try to keep it short.
1. Cress & Thorne
You guys make me so happy. Cress is so adorable and I love watching her become such a strong person. And Thorneeeeeeeee. The man sure knows how to be charming, damn it. I love the little aspects of Rapunzel Marissa Meyer uses. I was expecting Thorn to charm Cress, but I think it was so cute that she has a huge crush on him.
2. Scarlet & Wolf
You guys break my heart. #ForRealz.
3. Cinder & Kai!
Hallelujah! We are finally getting somewhere with this relationship! Cinder is still totally badass. The ending had me grinning like a fool.
4. The ACTION!
Still awesome. Definitely a lot of story lines going on. Can be a bit frustrating, just because I start getting really into one, but than, we switch the next. Though Marissa Meyer does a really good of keeping it all contained and amazing.
5. Next book
Still on the fence about Jacin. But dear gods, Winter (the person…and the book, too) sounds absolutely amazing! So intriguing. Why must we wait until next year ):
Fin: So yeah, overall, this book was pretty entertaining. It had great relationships, adorable moments, heartbreaking moments, intense moments, and swooning moments. Definitely never a dull moment. Another awesome collection for the Lunar Chronicles.
Find Marissa Meyer:
a bum OT, procrastinator. reader. eater. sleeper. music listen-er. movie go-er. Loves food too much.
