Cress is the third installment of the Lunar Chronicles, and a spin off of Rapunzel. If you have not picked up this series yet and you fell in love with Harry Potter, Twilight, or Divergent, go pick up the first one, Cinder immediately.
Cress, a Lunar shell, is imprisoned in a satellite orbiting Earth, forced to do Mira Sybil’s bidding. Cress is the Lunar responsible for keeping all Lunar ships cloaked and is the first to find Cinder’s gang in the Rampion. What happens next is an adventure epic full of missteps, friendships, maybe more than friendships, and a rollercoaster good time for the reader.
Like the other books in the series, this one is not winning any awards for sophisticated writing style. However, the plot line is full of adventure – which I swoon over – and has these little touches throughout all the books that make it a treasure to read even for adults.
I didn’t love it quite like Scarlet as the sheer amount of characters is beginning to make the story telling a tad unwieldy. However, I still devoured it in record time, and I would recommend it quickly if you’ve already fallen in love with the series. It does not disappoint.
