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.
Oh my gosh, I am going to go crazy waiting for the next book! This series has become my favorite by far. Sorry Percy Jackson...
I was a bit nervous going in, because I really did not like Scarlet. The book was good enough, but the character was just so unlikable to me. Even in this book it was hard for me to care about Scarlet and Wolf. I mean seriously, there is this part that I won't go into too much detail, but basically Scarlet is a prisoner and everyone is treating her bad, and the one person who tries to help her she's like 'no, I hate you though you have only been nice to me.' I understand not trusting and hating the Lunars and stuff, but come on there comes a point when have to go 'you're not torturing me, I'll accept the food you're giving me. Thanks for not being a douche.'
But anyway, Cress was a great sequel and I really enjoyed her character. Hers and Thornes interactions together were just adorable. Shes a bit crazy, but living alone in a satellite for years will do that to a person. The only thing that really upset me about her is when she is brought to Dr. Erland and he's all like, you're safe now and stuff, then she knocks him out. She had trust issues for sure, but her background again will cause that.
Anyway, LOVED the book, LOVE the series, can't wait for the next one.
