Cress

Marissa Meyer
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.

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.

Continues the series strong and does not falter. Particularly loved the characterization of the Repunzel character and her interactions with others. Exciting ways to see old characters find their "fairy tale" role. Good to see heroes struggle more and run into unexpected difficulties, and handled quite well. Excited to learn more about Winter and Channary.

CAPTAIN THORNE!!!!!

CAPTAIN THORNE!!!!!

CAPTAIN THORNE!!!!!

Also, Iko, who is my favourite character in the entire series. I want an android like her.

Cress is another great installment in the Lunar Chronicles, and possibly my favourite. A retelling of Rapunzel, and very clever about it too.
