In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth.Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl trapped on a satellite since childhood who’s only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she’s being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she’s just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice. When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is splintered. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price than she’d ever expected. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai, especially the cyborg mechanic. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

And match him with the quirky personality of Cress... ahh (insert big sappy grin emoji) Really, this book was just so much FUN! I can't tell you how many tim...
Another volume, another heroine. Getting back in this world and meeting my favorite characters again made me really happy. Only after I started reading Cress, I realized how much I’ve missed them! The plot is well-paced, so when you see that the book has over 500 pages don’t freak out ...
