This series keeps getting better and better!
In the third installment of the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and her band of misfits are on their way to rescue Cress, the hacker who warned Cinder of Queen Levana’s intention for Earth in the first book. But the mission goes awry and the team is separated. Now Cinder must come up with a plan to rescue her friends AND stop Queen Levana from taking over Earth.
I can’t tell you how excited I’ve become about this series since I first started reading it (read my reviews here and here)! The third book is the retelling of the classic fairy tale Repunzel and I was not disappointed with the way Marissa Meyer modernized it. I love the character of Thorne; he’s a charming and sarcastic thief who Cinder befriended in the last book. His character really has a chance to shine as he and Cress get closer together and I could not stop laughing at his antics. I laughed out laugh at a particular scene when the whole team was reunited. I also noticed that Scarlet has a so-called “prince charming” in her life when Red Riding Hood isn’t a princess fairy tale. However, I appreciate the twist. I absolutely cannot wait to read Winter, the lunar princess who was introduced in the last chapter or so. I’ll be disappointed when the series ends but so far I have loved every minute of it.
Once again, I give this a 5/5.
Until next time!
