Cress by Marissa Meyer is the third book in the amazing Lunar Chronicles series. This book blew me away, it was so good. At this point in the series though, it would be hard for me to give you a synopsis, because so much has happened, so I’ll just give you Marissa Meyer’s synopsis, and then I’ll tell you my own opinions.
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 prevent her army from invading Earth.
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 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 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.
So that was the exciting summary for this exciting book.
My opinion: I thought this book was the best one out of the three, it was so exciting, and it kept me up late at night. There was so much action, violence, and romance. (The good kind, not the cheesy kind) I absolutely loved the way Marissa Meyer spilt up the story and it was just all so good. And the ending, oh that ending, it was horrifically beautiful. It was so good, I just don’t even know what to do with myself as I wait for book 4. Please read this series, trust me, you want to.
5 out of 5 stars
