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.
You know you are reading a series by a very gifted author when she keeps delivering. This book was even better than I could hope for. Every character returns and the addition of the lovely Cress makes everything complete. l was swept away in the plot and the writing-style is so flowy and easy. This series vaguely reminds me of Harry Potter: every piece of information from the previous books seem to fall together and it makes me want to re-read them to see if I’ve missed anything before. I need Winter right now!
I’m overwhelmed by how good this book is, but I’ll try to capture the beauty and everything is spoiler free, even if you haven’t read Cinder or Scarlet yet (and if that’s the case, shame on you, what are you waiting for? I’m going to stare awkwardly and scary at you until you change it *stares*)
