Cress book review
Series: The Lunar Chronicles
Number in series: 3
Author: Marissa Meyer
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction
Plot: Cinder and her friends are trying to find a way to stop Emperor Kai and Queen Levana 's wedding. They come in contact with Cress, a Lunar computer hacker who lives in a satellite. Cress agrees to help them stop the royal wedding in exchange for her freedom.
As Cinder and her friends come up with a dangerous scheme they learn that they"ll each have to make major sacrifices in order to save earth.
This is an extremely fast-paced even thought it is over 500 pages. It brought the events that had started in the first two books to a climax, which was exciting.
I think the main thing I liked about this book is that I started to really connect with the characters, especially Carswell Thorne and Wolf, both of whom I hadn't cared much for in Scarlet.
There are also a few new characters, who I think brought a lot to the story.
There is some content- Several couples kiss and think about when they will be able to kiss each other passionately in the future.
There is a scene where a blind man walks into a bathroom where a girl is bathing. Nothing happens, but it's awkward.
There is violence and innuendo throughout the book.
My rating: 3
