Normal 0 The third in the Lunar Chronicles is as enjoyable and riveting as the first two, Cinder and Scarlet. This next take on fairy tales gone bad has Cress, a Rapunzel counterpart, in a satellite tower monitoring the security and activity of the Lunar operations. A prisoner since birth of Sybil and Queen Levana, she has been ordered to track down Cinder and her accomplice Captain Thorne, who have added Scarlet and Wolf to their team. Prince Kai is about to marry the queen in order to save Earth from war. Nothing will go as planned and readers will be captivated by the action and unpredictable plot. If you have not read the series start right now and you will be waiting, as I already am for the final chapter, Winter, due on shelves early in 2015.

Description


The third book in the #1 New York Times- and USA Today-Bestselling Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer The evil space queen gives an imprisoned hacker orders to track down our cyborg heroine and her team of reimagined fairytale characters. Can the Rapunzel-like hacker break free and help them instead?

"An interesting mash up of fairy tales and science fiction . . . a cross between Cinderella, Terminator, and Star Wars."--Entertainment Weekly on the Lunar Chronicles

"Prince Charming among the cyborgs." --The Wall Street Journal on the Lunar Chronicles

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.

Find out what happens in another richly imagined adventure in Marissa Meyer's world of fairytale (with characters based off of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel), science fiction, and intergalatic intruigue.

Praise For…


Praise for Cress:

* "Meyer continues to show off her storytelling prowess, keeping readers engaged in a wide cast of characters while unfolding a layered plot that involves warring governments and a fast-spreading plague. The momentum Meyer built in the first two books continues to accelerate as the stakes grow higher for Cinder and her friends. The next installment cannot come fast enough." —Publishers Weekly, starred review "Once again, Meyer offers up a science fiction fantasy page-turner that salutes women’s intelligence and empowerment. . . . Old and new romances, unfinished story lines, and the prognostication of wartime horrors all pave the way for Meyer’s much anticipated next installment, Winter, expected in 2015." —Booklist  Praise for Cinder:
