Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard.
In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, 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.
I’ve featured this book in my past 2 Top Ten Tuesdays but I can’t stop reiterating how much I love the Lunar Chronicles! Rapunzel is also one of my favorite fairytales of all time (which I loved even more after watching Tangled the movie) and after reading a short excerpt of Cress, I found the protagonist – Cress – quite similar to the spunky, lovable and adorable Rapunzel portrayed in Tangled. Marissa Meyer adapts well-known fairytales into a sci-fi world so well it’s almost ridiculous! Less than 2 months left and I’m definitely pre-ordering this one soon.
