Rapunzel's tower is a satellite. She can't let down her hair—or her guard.
In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they're plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.
Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only 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 goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.
Oh, I absolutely loved this book! It was so good, great characters, and we got another new fairytale, Rapunzel, and yeah, so many things happen in this book, it's a shame that I won't remember them all, but that just means that I will have to reread the whole series before Winter!!!
Cress was awesome, and so was Captain Thorne, and how he got a body for the robot currently operating the ship, and then switched them out, and how Cress was jealous, because she'd built this fantasy of Thorne that she was in love with, so yeah, there was that!
And the whole "I'll only kiss you if we are in immediate threat of death" thing, and how he did that when they were making their big escape, that was pretty cute! And this is just after finding out that her dad was the scientist, and yeah, that part was a bit sad, but we as the reader knew for a while, and were not waiting in reading to find out if he'd tell Cress!!
And then there was Scarlet, and what happened to her, and how devastated Wolf was, because yeah, he knows what the Lunars would do to her, because of his position. Oh, and that we got to see Princess Winter, who's going to be a Snow White retelling, yeah, there's that, and yeah, she was pretty interesting, because she's been going crazy, and how she treated Scarlet? Yeah, it was weird!
Loved this book, and yeah, can't wait to reread the whole series and then read Winter, it'll be so good!!!
