In this third book in Marissa Meyer’s bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, 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 prevent her army from invading Earth.
Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl trapped 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 being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she’s just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.
When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is splintered. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price than she’d ever expected. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai, especially the cyborg mechanic. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.
O M G . This book is SO amazing!!! I truly adore this series but this book was WOW! It had everything I could ask for! It’s more fast paced, with more action, with even more amazing characters and the development on them is so perfect! They are all so well intertwined! The thing with this books is that, even though each book keeps having more major characters, it somehow makes them better rather than confusing! And believe me I am the first person getting confused by too many POV…
Even though some of the main characters have some similar character traits, they all have something that makes them stand-out, that makes them unique! In this book we meet Cress, and she represents the fairy tale character Rapunzel, but other than being trapped in her tower, she is stuck up high in her satellite all on her own.
She is completely different from Cinder that is totally or from Scarlet that has the fire in herself; Cress is just adorable! You would think that a person away form others for so long would turn socially awkward, but Cress just turned herself to fantasy and developed a golden heart.
This book is much more complex than Cinder or even Scarlet. It has much more suspense, a whole lot of things happening everywhere and some really stressy and some sad moments! With each book things get more complicated and a lot of worse things began to happen to each of these characters. But yet this book has some pretty funny moments that you wouldn’t expect.
But some parts of this book are totally heart-breaking. A lot of the characters experience very difficult moments in this book and some are not yet resolved…
It’s impossible to read this series and not get attached to the characters…
For example Cinder; she so much deserves to be happy but she still has such a heavy weight on her shoulders! They all have now and they shouldn’t be passing through so much just because of that awful idiot manipulative queen arghhh! >.< I’m so excited for Queen Levana to just pay for everything she’s done and is doing! But first I really really want to read Fairest and see if she was always like that or if something made her be like that and what. Although there is absolutely NO excuse to do what she is doing! right??
What do you think of Cress?
Favorite moment of the book?
