Synopsis: In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, 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 her army.
Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned 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 just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.
When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.
IT IS NO DOUBT, THIS IS SO FAR MY FAVOURITE BOOK IN THIS WONDERFUL SERIES.
Every page was a turn deeper into this magnificent adventure. Every chapter was a gripping, glorious read. Every book further into this series is a spiral twisting deeper and darker into a long string of shocking, captivating and marvellous events that make up The Lunar Chronicles.
This book has so many twists to it. So many surprises I never expected! I love how everything fit together so perfectly, and simply cannot wait to continue reading this series. I’ve started reading Fairest now, I’m currently just at the beginning and a bit impatient to get it over with and reach the ultimate finale!
I loved all the action. Trust me, guys, if this book somehow seems to be boring or dull or monotonous for you, reconsider. It is one hell of a rollercoaster.
I love all of the characters! My favourite in this book is probably Cress, who is actually based off Rapunzel, just because she’s so sweet and lovable and so skilled and strong at the same time. But I also really like Thorne for his ability to crack jokes in such dire situations, and Wolf for being… well, Wolf.
I love all the different settings this book contains. Places such as the satellite, the Sahara desert, New Beijing, Lunar. There really is a very wide diversity of places included in this book, and I really enjoyed reading about them and exploring them with the characters.
The writing is pretty perfect! I didn’t have a single problem with it, it flowed very well, I really loved the variety of words used, and also the vocabulary of this world and time is amazing.
If you are a fan of YA Fantasy especially, this book will be totally perfect for you! If you generally don’t read fantasy, I’m still recommending it. It’s fantastic.
So, who’s your favourite character in the book? Who do you prefer more… Thorne or Wolf, Cinder or Scarlet? What is your favourite book in this series?
