Synopsis (Goodreads)
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.

Following on from where Scarlet left off, Cress was yet another amazing addition to The Lunar Chronicles and to be completely honest, while I found the 500+ pages a little daunting (God only knows what I’ll be like when I get around to starting Winter) I was soon flying through it page after page.

The way that Meyer keeps on creating such beautiful landscapes, characters and plot lines is simply astounding. It has definitely been a while since I found myself so completely sucked into a novel as I was with Cress.

With Winter being the fourth and last novel in this series, I am most looking forward to see exactly how Meyer will bring this series to an end. Although, I will admit, I am kind of terrified to see what she has in store for these characters we have all fallen in love with so quickly.
