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.
Cress is my favorite book in the Lunar Chronicles. There, I said it. It's out there. Yeah, I pretty much laid all my cards on the table right out out of the gate but maybe you would like to know why I loved it more than the others.
I have liked Cinder and Kai from the get-go but Thorne is the one that really had my heart. He's so funny and lighthearted. So the fact that Thorne kind of takes center stage in Cress gave Cress a leg up. In Cress, we get to see a different side of Thorne and I loved every second of it. I loved seeing how he treated Cress. Cress and Thorne's whole relationship was cute and sweet.
I also loved both Cinder and Kai in this installment. I think both Kai and Cinder grew as characters. They both had to take on even more responsibilty. It's great to see two people that are young to show such strength.
In Cress we were able to see a little more about Dr. Erland's past. I found his storyline in Cress very interesting and it was his storyline that offered a nice twist.
Cress was action packed and there was never a dull moment. I was worried that with all of the different characters and different storylines it would slow things down and make me feel disconnected from the story. However, I think it was the opposite. I loved all of the different storylines and how Meyer weaved them together. I was constantly wondering what would happen next.
I listened to the audio of Cress as I did with both Cinder and Scarlett and again I loved Rebecca Soler. She does a great job with the different voices.
I honestly can't think of a single thing I didn't like about Cress. It had great character development, swoonworthy guys, romance, action and suspense. Cress really did have it all and I cannot wait to see how this series ends!
