In this third book in Marissa Meyer’s 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.

Review 4 stars

The third book in The Lunar Chronicles series. The review will contain spoilers if you haven’t already read the first two books.

War. Queen Lavena will do anything to get what she wants. Prince Kia just wants his country to be safe. Cress is all alone her only company is her computers. Queen Levana has given her one job that is to find Cinder and Thorne. Later Cress will be thrown into the world of a wanted person.

The plan was to rescue Cress well everything went downhill the moment they got to her, everything that could happen did.

Cress is used to having no one then all of a sudden she is on earth which is all new to her she has only ever seen it through a window. Cress makes up stories to make her feel more confident, less scared which I think makes her way more relate able as we all do something whether we are scared, confused, embarrassed or when everything just gets too much. I feel like all of the characters Kia is the only one I feel like is the same compared to the last book he still has the same issue of saving his country.

What can I say about this book other than i really enjoyed it, the pacing defiantly picked up towards the ending as everything sort of happens in the last part of the book. Every character in this book has gone through something that makes them stronger or changes them. All i am going to say is i felt so sorry for Wolf in this book.

I am really looking forward for finishing this series I am excited and scared at the same time.
