Book Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

2:10 AM

In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, 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 her army. Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned 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 just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice. When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

Cress is simply put as a page turner! To the second book, Scarlet, I enjoyed but didn’t love as
much as I do this one. There was so much going on and I felt l
ike the characters were much more developed. Even though in this book you follow many plots at once I didn’t feel overwhelmed or that it was hard to follow. I like books that have mini plots within one, but this one was brilliant because each mini plot Marissa Meyer did a brilliant good on entwining all the mini plots into one! The writing in this book is easily some of my favorite writing from today’s authors. Her writing has this simple feel in a complexed world. For me Cinder has been my favorite female so far in this story but I think that Cress may have took her spot! It’s hard to say if that’s 100% true as I love them book. It could be the fact that Cress and Captain Thorne played a huge a role that I didn’t see coming. Overall this is an action packed story that I quite enjoyed. There is something about that I adore it maybe that it’s set it the start will a race that’s not human, the forbidden love, amazing writing & characters; I am not sure. But I can say I cannot wait for book four, Winter!
