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.
Crafted out of pure genius, Cress was a masterfully woven tale of political intrigue, romance, suspense and humour. As clues and bits of foreshadowing piled up until the answers were almost within reach, Cress propelled me along by keeping me in constant suspense of how the next piece would be connected to the greater whole. Never have I read a series as seemingly separate and disjointed, yet as intricate and complex and as thoroughly intertwined as The Lunar Chronicles. [Read more…]
