Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Series: The Lunar Chronicles #3
Publication Date: February 4th 2014
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Amazon ~ Goodreads ~ B&N

Synopsis: In this third book in Marissa Meyer's bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now 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, a girl trapped on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had 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 of Cress 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.

My Rating
5/5 stars

My Review
"Do you think it was destiny that brought us together?"
He squinted and, after a thoughtful moment, shook his head. "No. I'm pretty sure it was Cinder.” 

Just when I thought this series couldn't get any better. It does. Miss Meyer, you have really outdone yourself this time.

In the third book of the Lunar Chronicles, Cress, the girl who warned Cinder about Levana's plan to kill prince Kai, is in trouble. Cress is a shell, forced to live out her life in satellite, trying to track down Cinder for Queen Levana. Cinder plans a great rescue to get Cress out of the satellite and to join their force, but things never go as planned, and Sybil just happens to stop by right before the planned rescue.

If you've read my previous reviews about this series, you'll know that I love Cinder and Scarlet! They are both wonderful characters, but Cress's child like mind and her sweetness really put me over the edge! The characters that Marissa creates are all so unique, yet they all have something about them where you just can't help but love them all. I think Scarlet, Cinder and I would be best friends if they were real, and Cress would be like a little sister of mine.

Marissa did an amazing job with the storyline for this book, not only did she manage to have tons of action and adventure in this book, but she was also able to set up the plot for the next book. Even though I loved the storyline of this book, I am way more excited for whats to come in Winter.

I would love to make this review much longer, but I'm worried the slightest thing will spoil the whole thing for you, so I'm going to keep it short.

If you loved the previous books in the series, you will love this one just as much or even more than the first two. If you have not started this series, first of all why are you reading this review? And second of all go start reading Cinder right now!

Happy Reading,
