Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard.
In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only 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 goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.

My thoughts: 

It’s probably coming as no surprise that I’m just going to rave about Cress! Marissa Meyer and her Lunar Chronicles are very popular here in the blogging community and on Goodreads. Not only is she one fantastic writer but she is also so very nice in person! She has quickly become one of my favorite authors.

I don’t know how it’s possible but I continually like the next book in the series more than the one before it. And since I thought that Cinder was an amazing re-telling of Cinderella and I gave it five stars, all the rest of the series has subsequently received 5 stars as well because they are epically amazing! I’m not going to go into a lot of details about Cress because I don’t want to give away any spoilers.

1. Characters: So good! Cress continues both Cinder and Scarlet’s story lines and manages to weave Cress into it! I also love Cress and her little romance that she’s got going on with someone I shall not name (even though it’s pretty obvious) and it’s totally the typical damsel in distress theme and it totally works! Cress totally reminds me of Rapunzel from Tangled just a little smarter and a little more naive.

2. Plot: It’s so intriguing! Cress has the story line that continues from Scarlet and now suddenly they run into Cress who is prisoner in a space satellite! The story just flows so seamlessly with the separate storylines, all the characters and a lot of action!

3. Romance: I’m a big fan of the romance in the Lunar Chronicles. No love triangles, no one fighting over each other and no insta-love. These characters get to know each other and find out the goods and the bads before they decide they’re head over heels in love.

So if you love this series so far then you’ll love Cress! It’s almost out! Just be a little more patient and then when it’s released, read it as soon as you can!

My daughter couldn't wait for this to come out. Tried to obtain through the library but they were not processed yet, so I treated her to this for a great report card. She finished it in two days and now keeps rambling about how she has to wait another year for another to come out. So I would say she enjoyed the book immensely!
