Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3 ) by Marissa Meyer - Review


by Marissa Meyer

This series is so much fun! It's not intellectual letterature, but is funny and enjoyable. It has it all: the romance, the actions and new discoveries about our characters' past. You can't really get bored with it.

 This is the third book in the Lunar Chronicles series (1#, 2#), we left at the end of the second book with Cinder, Throne, Scarlet and Wolf aboard the Rampion, they all manage to escape from the Lunars attack in Paris and now they will need to figure out a plan to overturn Levania and stop a marriage, but to succeed they will need the help of an intergalactic hacker, Cress.

"When she was just a child, the witch locked her away in a tower that had neither doors nor stairs"

Cress has been locked up since childhood in a satellite orbiting earth, with only her netscreens as company. After doing all she could to warn Cinder of the Queen's evil Plan she received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her accomplice. After contacting Cinder they put out a plan for her rescue. But we all know that things don't tend to follow plans, in the attempt to free Cress they will get separated. Will this unlikely group of friends be able to save the world and the moon? 

In this book we are saving a damsel in distress, but as the level-headed Cinder and the fiery Scarlet , Cress has a unique character, she is not the usual fairytale princess waiting to be rescue, she is adorably naive and lovable, a bunch of cuteness and badass hacking skills. Her fangirling over Throne is just hilarious, they are so nice to read about.
Cinder is upgrading her skills and personality. She is coming to accept her position as the Lunar princess. With every book her character is getting more complex, forget about dress and jewelry this girl is not afraid of getting her hands dirty. 

"You can help me pick out a tiara when we're done saving the world"

This book is full of humor and jokes, making it a light enjoyable read, without forgetting to unleash some secrets,  crazy battle and escapes. 
We also get a pick about to new characters, the Queen's stepdaughter Winter and Jacin, that I'm sure we are going to see more in Winter. They are two interesting figure Jacin, who is insolent and seems to care only about saving his skin and his beloved princess; and Winter who clearly is up against Levania but is a little bit nuts. Can't wait to read more about them!

I'll need to pick up Fairest really soon, I can not believe Levania was always such a bitch, I really need to know what happened to her.
