Cress is the third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, following Cinder and Scarlet. Incarcerated in a satellite, an expert hacker and out to save the world - Cress isn't your usual damsel in distress. Cress grew-up as a prisoner. With only net screens for company she's forced to do the bidding of the evil Queen Levana. Now that means tracking down Cinder and her handsome accomplice Emperor Kai.

This series just keeps getting better and better, I just love it.
Meyer has crafted such a fabulous world in these retellings and with such well-drawn characters that you can't help but to root for them, and to wish they were your friends ... or lover as is the case with captain Thorne.
"Captain, I think I am in love with you" O captain, my captain, how I love thee. I have loved him since Cinder stumbled upon him in Scarlet, he's such as cocky rapscallion and I love it. I think I must have a thing for scoundrels with hearts of gold or something like that ;-) I enjoyed getting to see a whole new side to him though and learning that he is not just a selfish criminal.
Cress is a lovely new addition to the cast, she is such a sweet girl, surprisingly relatable and a lot less crazier than you would expect from someone who has been alone in a satelitte most of her life. She grew a lot during the course of her adventures and I can't wait to see more growth from her in Winter.
And Iko, can someone please get me my own Iko already, thank you. I love how she has no brain/mouth filter and just says what's on her mind, usually it is the same thing that is on the readers mind. Iko is definitely my favourite character and I hope she gets and keeps that perfect humanoid body of her dreams by the end of the chronicles.
I love how the plot builds and builds with each book, and Cress had many great new developments that I can't wait to see fleshed out in the next book. And that book cannot come out soon enough, it is going to be so good.
