Cress is the third installment in the Lunar chronicles series. Similar to the last two books in the series, this book has a new central character in the story, named Cress. Cress has spent the majority of her life on ship orbiting around Earth, and all the while hacking into computers and cracking codes for Queen Levana. But after the events that take place in Cinder and Scarlet, the last two books in this series, Cress gets in contact with Cinder, Wolfe, Throne, and Scarlet. After they get in contact with each other, they get one step closer to defeating Queen Levana, and destroying her plans of world domination.
I am left speechless by this book. I couldn’t have possibly been more pleasantly surprised by this book. At first I only just liked the Lunar Chronicles, but Cress left me impatient to read the next book. This was filled with the perfect amounts of action, adventure, romance, and suspense to take me on an emotional roller coaster, and wanting more.
One thing that was really memorable about this book was the character development. I was really surprised at how much we got to learn about each of the characters, especially those who seemed to be completely flat in the last two books. It was certainly one out of the myriad of reasons that I liked this book so much.
