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. From Goodreads.
Let's all take a moment to swoon over the cover.
*sigh* So pretty. Are you done? Good. Onto the review.
After the cliffhanger of Scarlet, I was dying for a copy of Cress. This series is so mind-blowing and different from other YA books and the characters never seize to make me feel emotions and an overwhelming amount of feels. After reading lots of positive reviews and having high expectations, this book did not disappoint.
Cress is the best book I have read in a long time. I spent the whole Sunday reading this masterpiece and I don't regret a single moment. I have troubles with my eyes so I had to force myself to read and push through the headaches. All day it was literally the same routine: read for a few minutes, put on eye mask and listen to music for a bit, read, eye mask, read, medication, read, read, read. I couldn't stop. I won't dive into the plot too much as I don't want to reveal spoilers, but I'm going to *try* to articulate my thoughts that hopefully make some sort of sense.
The characters. OH MAN. The friendships between the characters made me smile and the interactions were so realistic and asdfghjkl. (I said I would try to make sense... it wasn't a promise). The romance made me smile so much. Cress and Thorne warmed my fangirl heart. I was also very happy to see more of Kai in this one than we did of him in Scarlet, and I liked Wolf so much more. For me personally, Cinder was great and Scarlet was okay but Cress blew my mind. How can the publishers expect me to wait a whole year for Winter?
If you haven't read this series yet, lock away all your doubts or hesitations and read it. I can't recommend this book enough.
