Goodreads Synopsis...
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.


I loved this book, which was to be expected because I loved the first two. Cress was just such a joy to read, its one of those books that just makes me happy while reading it, and sad when it ends. Its fast paced, action packed and full of romances I cant help but root for. 

The character Cress was smart, sweet, and so darn adorable. I loved seeing Scarlet and especially Cinder again. And all the characters were fun and interesting to hear about. It was also really interesting to be able to get some insight into Levana, and what she thinks. Im excited to delve deeper into her character in the next book.

The only negative things I have to say, is that I wanted more Cinder. I really enjoy the idea of each new book, introducing a new character. But I yearn for Cinder scenes. Her plot line is definitely the one that interests me the most, and her romance makes me happiest of all. As well as this, I felt like the romance in Cress, and the suggested one for Winter; that was touched on in this book. Are coming just a little bit too easily. It seems like everyone has a perfect match just waiting for them, which leaves the romances to simple and uncomplicated. And romance should and normally is very, very complicated.

I still really enjoyed the book, and the things I didn't like were negligible compared to how much fun it was to be caught up in this story and world. Now begins the wait for the final book Winter. And just like the Stark's I will recite constantly and fervently, that winter is coming!
