Cress by Marissa Meyer

“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. ”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

So this book is the third book in the Lunar Chronicles that follows Cinder, Thorne, Scarlet, and Wolf through their adventures to take back Luna. You also meet Cress who is probably my least favorite character so far. Which is super weird because Cress is one of my favorite books so far.

The end of the book really gave me Ella Enchanted and Harry Potter vibes. I love how well they get along and how they all want the same goal. They all go along for the ride even though the ride might not be so steady.

I love Thorne and his sense of humor. I love Cinder and her determination even when the going gets rough. I love Scarlet and her attitude and the way that she stays determined even in the worst of situations. I love Wolf and how much he loves Scarlet. I love Cress because she is so naive but so brave.

I recommend this book to anyone who liked the Lunar Chronicles series and maybe 8th grade kids. It’s not mature content, but Cress is pretty long. I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars just because it wasn’t amazing because it does start out slow, but gets faster in the middle.

Until Next Time,
