Cress by Marissa Meyer
Posted by Krystal Larson at 8:20 PM Sunday, December 29, 2013
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.
As the Lunar Chronicles continue, the reader has to get used to meeting more main characters. Cress, a bit of a last-minute main character, arrives on the scene as an unusual girl who has had little to no company (being stuck on a satellite and all). She has plenty of time on her hands and not enough to do; she became what many of this generation fears: a hacker. Cress is given an order to find Cinder, but will she carry it out?
I liked all of the characters; I was a little disappointed because I didn't get to read more about Cress. Her time was split up similar to the rest and she was, unfortunately, in the last book in this series. I would have loved to have met her prior. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder are all fun characters; Scarlet and Cinder have grown so much since when the first book began. The reader will feel as if they are old friends.
The plot was fast-paced and edgy. I liked the feeling of suspense as the threat of Queen Levana waxed and waned. The ending did not surprise me, but I found it a satisfying conclusion. This book is recommended to teen/young adult readers.
