Summary

The third instalment in the best-selling 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 netscreens 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. But little does Levana know that those she seeks, and the man she loves, are plotting her downfall....

As paths cross and the price of freedom rises, happily ever after has never seemed further away for Cress, Scarlet and Cinder. This is not the fairy tale you remember. But it's one you won't forget.

Critic reviews

"Once again, Meyer offers up a science fiction fantasy page-turner that salutes women's intelligence and empowerment." ( Booklist)
"The momentum Meyer built in the first two books continues to accelerate as the stakes grow higher for Cinder and her friends. The next instalment cannot come fast enough." ( Publishers Weekly)

Amazing

I loved the whole series, but I think Cress has been my favourite. I love her character! It’s been narrated really well and the story was so gripping and different to anything I’ve read before! Would definitely recommend to fans of YA fantasy and sci and fairy tale re tellings.

Great penultimate read

It was great to finally jump back into The Lunar Chronicles after reading both Cinder and Scarlet back in 2016. This was a great continuation. Loved how the story of Repunzel was weaved into the series so far. This flew by as there was so much action, so many twists and turns and a few revelations that made me feel so many emotions. I can't wait to see how this series concludes.

This is the first book in the series that I have listened to and I loved the narration and how well each individual voice was performed.
