Even in the future. there are damsels in distress…
In the third installment of the Lunar chronicles, Cress, having risked everything to warn Cinder of Queen Levana’s evil plan, has a slight problem. She’s been imprisoned on a satellite since childhood and has only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress a great hacker. Unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.
When a daring rescue of Cress involving Cinder, Captain Thorne, Scarlet, and Wolf goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes as a high price. Meanwhile, Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.
The Lunar Chronicles has been on every bookworm’s reading list. Cress, being the third book in the series is just one of the books that everybody is reading right now. I have seen bloggers in Goodreads mark the book as ‘want to read’ or currently reading. I am one of those bloggers who marked it both.
If you think that Scarlet messed up with your mind, wait until you read Cress. I’d like to call this book the book of ‘MORE’; more romance, more action, and funnier. Among the three of them- Cinder, Scarlet& Cress, I like Cress’s personality more. There’s the more word again. I liked her innocence.
Cress is intense, each scene has me grasping the edge of my chair because of anticipation. Carswell Thorne is like Robin Hood, but better. His way of helping is not really idealistic, but troublesome rather. Cress is, well, a damsel in distress. I am Damselle. Therefore, I am Cress. Hahaha!
I can say that each character became more matured in this book, their way of thinking also leveled up which made this book better than the other two.
