Cress by Marissa Meyer (Lunar Chronicles book 3)
While Scarlet and Wolf are getting better acquainted with Cinder and Thorne, Cress is a Lunar shell stuck in a satellite orbiting earth. After a rescue attempt goes totally wrong, the whole group is split up with no idea where the others are. Cress and Thorne, stranded in a desert, Cinder, with a Lunar soldier and an unconscious Wolf, and no sign of Scarlet. What’s Wolf going to think when he wakes up? Searching for Dr. Erland, Cinder needs to learn more about her lineage and what she needs to do to claim it. But with the date of Lunar Queen Levana’s marriage to Emperor Kai racing toward them, will they find a way to stop the wedding in time?
Isn’t that a nice cover? I was so excited when she released the cover art for this book.
I read this book in like two days so, if you didn’t gather, I really enjoyed this book. And that’s not just because I waited a whole year for it to come out. 1) It’s nice and long (not that it did me much good). 2) The ending is FANTASTIC (but also a horrible cliff-hanger)! When I met Marissa last year, she said that Cress would have more of Kai in it, and she did not disappoint! The only thing I don’t like about it is that I have to wait an entire year for the next book. Of course, I can wait (it’s not like I really have a choice, anyway); it’ll teach me patience. Maybe I’ll write a bit of fanfic over the summer or something. Or I’ll reread Cress over and over again every few months. Whatever works.
I totally give this book FIVE STARS! Y’all should read it.
