Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer
Goodreads – Science Fiction YA – February 4th 2014 by Feiwel & Friends
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.
First things first: I WANT THIS BOOK SO MUCH IT HURTS.
But, er, yeah… that’s not really news. I think my review of Scarlet has rather given away my thoughts on this series.
However, I am somewhat confounded by one part of the description: “Cinder and her handsome accomplice”. Who are they referring to? A few lines earlier they mention Scarlet and Wolf, but these two are neither singular nor “handsome”. Any thoughts??
