{Review} Cress By Marissa Meyer #CYBORGMONDAY

Age Range: 12 - 17 years
Grade Level: 7 and up
Series: Lunar Chronicles (Book 3)
Hardcover: 560 pages
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends (February 4, 2014)

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth.
Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl trapped on a satellite since childhood who’s only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she’s being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she’s just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.
When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is splintered. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price than she’d ever expected. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai, especially the cyborg mechanic. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

First off I would like to give my biggest thanks to Feiwl & Friends for sending me this book.

I believe this is one of the best books in the history of books, for me it's Harry Potter, then it's Cinder/Scarlet/Cress. It's just a perfect bled of action, romance, and suspense that when you start it you can't put it down. It took me about four hours to read this five hundred fifty page book.

To me all of the characters just seem to be like pieces of a puzzle how they all fit into a perfect place among the others.

Getting down to it now.

Tell Us A Quick Overview

Well in this book Cress is a girl who is a Lunar Shell, rescued from death to work as a hacker to track down Cinder and her crew. But when Cinder contacted her (in book one) she realizes that she doesn't want Queen Levana to take over Earth. So instead she helps the crew from her satellite tower. When she finally contacts them for help everything goes awry. Now they're all split up, Scarlet has been captured, Throne and Cress are on her falling satellite, then Cinder is left with an injured wolf on a stolen ship on her way to find Dr. Erland. You follow three different stories and around seven different views, not all of them consistent.

Favorite Characters 

Captain Carswell Thorne. He is funny, Charming, and just awesome. He is the flirt of the team that every book just has to have. It was like the author read my mind, he did almost everything I wanted him to in Cress and it was awesome.

Romance

Well there is the obvious couple Wolf and Scarlet. Then there is the fighting romance between Kai and Cinder. Then there is a new couple in this book, but I won't tell. I think the blend of people and romance is just perfect and I love it and so does every other person I know who has read these books.

Action

The action is something that really is suspenseful. Like it comes in the blink of an eye and leaves as quick as that. But in the brief moment so much happens that you freak out.

If you haven't started reading this series, DO IT NOW!!  If you have, you will love where this book takes you next!

Thanks,
Reagan
