Cress is Book 3 in
The Lunar Chronicles.
I do kinda wished it was a trilogy.
It all began with Cinder.
Which I loved.
I'm a huge Cinderella person
and loved the twist.
The second book,
This one was hard to get started with.
It had a slow start.
In Cress we meet Cress.
She's a Lunar.
And for years she's been held prisoner
in a little space craft.
(Can you tell by the cover she's Rapunzel?)
Cress gets in contact with Cinder
and asks to be saved.
(She's in love with Thorne and is convinced this hero
will save her - after all she is a damsel in distress.)
But the plan goes wrong,
and Cress and Thorne find themselves
trying to find their way back.
Thorne is also injured
Scarlet is taken to Lunar.
Cinder and Wolf continue with their plan
to bring down Queen Levena.
Once you get half way into the storyline
it's easy and enjoyable.
But the beginning drags.
Nothing interesting really happens.
I do love the twist on traditional fairytale characters.
And I love how Cinder is the one to save the prince.
Book 4 needs to be exciting
from beginning to end
and it needs to end.
