Review: Cress by @Marrisa_Meyer #SaveCress

Cress is the third book of The Lunar Chronicles. You can read my review of the first, Cinder, and second, Scarlet. The fourth, Winter, comes out next year.

I loved this book so much, I thought you would too. Stop by on Wednesday for a Cress giveaway!
CressRapunzel’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.

Book Review: Scarlet by @Marissa_Meyer

Scarlet is the second in The Lunar Chronicles. The first, Cinder, is a spin on the Cinderella fairytale. The third, Cress, is a twist on Rapunzel and will be released next February.

Scarlet

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her.

As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.

Book Review: Cinder by @Marissa_Meyer

Cinder is the first book in The Lunar Chronicles. The second, Scarlet, released this year.

CinderCinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

If you can’t tell from the name, Cinder is a new spin on the fairy tale Cinderella. But this version is definitely not Disney’s. Try sci-fi Cinderella on an intergalactic scale with a deadly virus and aliens set in New Bejing.

Awesome.
