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 high 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.
series is only getting better! And if you haven't started reading this
series yet, you are missing out on something so amazing. This is one of
the must-read series.
I loved book 2, Scarlet,
and at that time I really wanted to know more about Thorne. Because I
seriously loved his character (and Wolf, too). And I was so thrilled
when I found out there would be more of Thorne in Cress. The wait was torturous.
reason I loved this book was not only because of Thorne, but a thousand
other reasons. Just the name of the character, Cress, was very
intriguing. I loved the wordplay since "Rapunzel" literally means a type
of plant, and so does "Cress".
Compared to its predecessors, Cress
was probably the most emotional one. The twist was well-executed, but I
did wish it hadn't been that heartbreaking. Now all I have to do is
waiting just one more year until Winter is scheduled to be released. JUST. ONE. MORE. YEAR.
