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

The adventure continues in Cress!

The amount of action in this series just keeps getting bigger and better with every book. Things continue to heat up in this third installment and now the gang is getting ready to launch their first strikes against Levana. The first being to Save Cress! As Cinder digs deeper and more and more secrets are being revealed it is soon clear that it will take all that they have and as many allies as they can get to take down Levana. There was so many new mysteries cleared up in this book that I was constantly jumping up and down in excitement with each page turn. With more action unfortunately comes more danger and a few sacrifices. There was definitely some tear jerking moments in this book, but there were also plenty of just plain hilarious moments.

We meet Cress first in Cinder very briefly and I was intrigued, but not completely sure what to expect from her. After getting to know her in this book I was so excited. She is so adorable! Cress is also brilliant when it comes to programming which is why she is being forced to work for the lunar queen. I loved her courage and determination. She is trapped and betrayal could cost her her life, but she still does what she can to help the people of earth. I also loved her banter with Thorne. It was some of the best parts of the book!

Thorne was always the secondary wise cracker of the group and I liked that in this book he got some more time to shine. We definitely get to see A LOT more of his usual humor in this book, but I feel that we also get to see a softer side to him. It was kind of nice to see him caring so much for someone. Although his relationship with Cress has a long way to go I think there really is a small spark there.

So for all you lunar fans out there I highly recommend you go get your copy of Cress right now if you haven't already. Be warned it will put you on a roller coaster ride of emotions that will leave you screaming for the next book!
